Who on earth doesnt want to try their hands on the original? So were we waiting to do that.
After enjoying the high current waves @ the Eliots Beach, we had a small brainstorm session, came to a consensus and decided on The Ponnusamy Hotel.
The meat eaters crave to have the food from here as they provide the taste buds with the exotic variety. The Rabbit Roast, Titar, and lot many to list down.
Few of us had the veg chettinad meal which consisted of vegetable kootu, sambhar, rasam, tomato & onion gojju, dal chutney pudi with servings of endless ghee and the curd and the buttermilk. A few others tried their hands the chiken biryani (there was more chicken than the rice - though my friends tried gobbling all up, finally gave up), titar masala (it is supposed to be a small bird with very less flesh and more bones), the kaadu koli and the fish fry.
There was a disappointment too as my friends could not try on the rabbit roast which was not available for the dinner.
Hard core non-veggies can experiment with their taste buds trying on the variety of meat cooked in the typical south Indian Masala.
Since, this was the first Ponnusamy Hotel, the ambience is not very modern unlike the other branches, parking can be on the road, the service is pretty fast and the price is very reasonable.
Whatever.... Its THE ORIGINAL :)
Ponnusamy Hotel is located @ 55/1 Gowdia Mutt Road, Royapettah, Chennai
