Anjappar Chettinas A/C Restaurant @ Madurai

We decided to have our late lunch at Hotel Anjappar Chettinad which is located along the highway to the Tiruchirappalli International Airport. Anjappar is one of my favourite places for Briyani and Meals in Malaysia and I’m glad that I got a chance to try it in India. We were greeted at the entrance and we find our own place to sit. Once seated, the staff gave us the menu. After browsing through the menu, we ordered 2 Regular Meals and Coffee. A couple of people occupied the Hotel when we arrived at 1.30pm as its past lunch hours in India. The ambiance of the Hotel was cozy and super comfortable to enjoy the meal. 

Regular Meals was simply delicious. My pick would be their Rasam, Chicken Curry, Fish Curry and Yogurt. Their yogurt is damn good so you guys must try it. Yum!! 
Overall, it was super good lunch before our flight back to Malaysia. Delicious food, excellent service and reasonable price. The total bill is about RS 280/RM 19.91 for all the foods and drinks.

Hotel Sree @ Tirunelveli

Attracted by the beautiful SALNA aroma from this particular Hotel whenever I pass by the Hotel, I decided to take away dinner here. Hotel Sree is located at  Trivandrum Road, Palayamkottai. It is a small corner shop that opens from morning to night and the interesting part is they serve Parotta, all day long. Wonderful!! We ordered 3 Parotta and 1 omellete to the staff for take away. It took about 5-10 minutes to get our food. A couple of people occupied the Hotel when we arrived at 7.30pm but it was busy with people taking away. The ambiance of the Hotel was so-so to dine-in. Hence, my advice is to take away and have it in the house.

The omelette was super delicious and it goes perfectly well with the Parotta. Now I know, why everyone like to have Parotta with Omelette, they are match made in heaven.
Parotta was delicious, but the Salna was way too average for me that I left it untouched. 
Overall, it was an average dinner for me. Parotta and Omelette was good but the Salna is so-so for me. The total bill is about RS 23/RM 1.53 for the foods.

Marry Brown Family Restaurant @ Vannarpettai, Tirunelveli

This time round, I decided to try Marry Brown Family Restaurant during my recent visit to India. I was super lazy to go out, thus I ordered delivery. When I called the particular outlet in Vannarpettai, Tirunelveli for delivery, the staff  informed me that the delivery is only applicable for order that is more than RS 500/ RM 33.18 and I tell them that I just wanted to get some fried chicken and lollipop and about to hang up the call, the staff said he would deliver my order. Hooray!! I ordered 1 pieces of Fried Chicken, lollipop and Chicken Wrap. While ordering, remember to inform them about the famous landmark located nearby your house so that it will easy for them find the house. It cost me about RS 300+/RM 19.91 for the delivery and I choose CASH ON DELIVERY (Super convenient for me). It takes about 30-35 minutes to get my delivery. During the payment, I realized that my order was wrong. I ordered Chicken Wrap but they delivered me Chicken Tandoori Wrap. When I questioned the staff, he asked me to call the outlet, but I was lazy to do so and decided to pay for it. 

Fried Chicken was super duper yummy. The fried chicken was crunchy, juicy and flavorful as well. Yum!! Fried Chicken @ RS 89/RM 5.94/Lollipop was irrestiably delicious as well. If you wish to have less meat, but more crunch, this is definitely for you guys.
 Lollipop @ RS 89/RM 5.94
Chicken Tandoori Wrap was superb. At first, I thought it would be chewy as the wrap looks thick, but then I realized I was totally wrong. The wrap was soft and goes perfectly well with the Tandoori Chicken and Veg. Thank god!! I never called up for replacement.

Annapoorna Hotel @ Tirunelveli

According to my grandmother, Annapoorna Hotel serves one of the best vegetarian foods in Tirunelveli. Therefore, myself and my sister decided to take away our dinner here. Annapoorna Hotel is located at Trivandrum Road, Palayamkottai. We were greeted at the entrance by the staff and we proceed to their cashier counter to order our take away foods. You have to order and pay at the cashier counter. We ordered 3 Parotta for take away. Once ordered, the staff asked us to wait at their dining area and we were served with a glass of water while waiting for our take away food. A couple of people occupied the hotel when we arrived at 8pm therefore it don’t take long to get our food. The ambiance of the hotel was good to enjoy the meal. 

Parotta was flaky and it tastes excellent with salna. In addition, it is also bigger in size compared to the usual tiny sized parotta that you can get from any road side shop. 
Parotta @ RS 20/RM 1.33
Overall, it was a good dinner for me. The Parotta is priced at RS 20/RM 1.33 per piece which is relatively higher than the usual price of RS 6/RM 0.40, however the size justify the price difference in my opinion.

Nong Mai by Soi 19 @ Damansara Utama

When the cravings for Thai food strikes and its past 9.30pm whereby most of the restaurant will be closed by this hour, I suggested Restaurant Nong Mai for supper as I saw they opened around 10pm while I was waiting for my turn in Brother John Burger. Restaurant Nong Mai is located at Damansara Utama (Samerow with Miru Dessert). We were greeted at the entrance and we find our own place to sit. Once seated, the staff gave us the menu. They have both Ala-Cate and Steamboat. We decided to order their Pork Set (300g), Thai Lemon Tea and White Rice. It was crowded when we arrived at 10pm and its filling up too. The ambiance of the place was good to enjoy the meal. 

Thai Lemon Tea Hot was tasty and goes very well with the steamboat. 
Thai Lemon Tea Hot @ RM 4.90
They have Tom Yum and Vegetable soup for the steamboat. The staff told me that their popular soup is veg soup yet we prefer to have Tom Yum Soup as our soup base. Tom Yum soup was simply delicious. For me, it’s the best choice for steamboat and also they refill the soup regularly without even requesting to do so.
How to enjoy the steamboat? Put some meat and vegetable in the Tom Yum soup, wait for 5 minutes for it to cook and then enjoy!! If still confused, don’t resist to ask the staff for the guidance, they will be more than happy to assist you. 
 
Pork Set (300g) includes Vegetables, Noodles, Mushroom and Pork. The pork meat was tender and juicy and when dip it with the spicy sauce, it’s yum. The sauce have a good punch of heat in it.

Back to my favourite place for Hair Makeover and it’s none other than the E3 Saloon, Masjid Jamek. After spending about 5 hours in the saloon, we were starving.

Filter Coffee was simply delicious. It’s smooth and soft with rich coffee flavour.
Egg Briyani was delicious. It tastes similar to the one I had in India. 
Chicken Masala was yummy.
Banana Leaf Rice (Veg) was so-so to us. It tasted okay and not something extraordinary, though especially their curries need some improvement in my opinion. Among the 4 curries we tried, I only liked their fish curry. 
Overall, it was an average lunch for us. Most of the items in the menu was not available during our visit and I think there is a room for improvement in my opinion. The total bill is RM 28 for foods and drinks.

The ambiance of the hotel was good and they have their own car parking and mini playground too. In India, I notice few hotels have their own playground for the kids. Good to entertain the kids while parents are busy enjoying the foods.
