Bharathi Mess, triplicane, Chennai. Thanks to a bunch of youngsters who introduced us to this awesome, healthy eatery.
We reached the place at 4.15pm and had to wait for 15mins for the evening session to start. They close after lunch for cleaning and cooking for the evening.
What was unique about this place was the staff prays that they should serve their customers in the best possible way before they start serving food.
They have a policy of no palm oil, no cooking soda, no msg, no white sugar and no maida.
Their menu consists of all healthy evening snacks at very reasonable price.
We tried the vazhapoo vada ( Banana flowers fritters). They were fresh and just out of the pan.
Kozhakattai ( jaggery and coconut stuffed steamed rice cakes) steaming hot.
Rice and ragi idiyappam ( string hoppers) with vada Curry. Soft and yummy.
Ragi and kambu ladoo just melted in our mouth, this was made with coconut and jaggery.
Sumithi milk, had no clue what it was, but the foodie in me wanted to offcourse experiment. Well, no regrets, I loved it. This was made with mixing pepper, palm sugar, dry ginger in hot milk.
The prices are unbelievable low, it is total value for money. Do not expect sitting place, you can only stand and eat here.
They are open from 7.30am. I guess they close between 3pm to 4.30pm Worth the wait and visit.
I am going again with my family.
