If you are looking for a really great authentic South Indian breakfast spot in Chennai City then Palmgrove Hotel is the place to go. Their restaurant Menaka is a hot spot for Chennaites over the weekends. The place has virtually no décor – it’s a very cafeteria like setting but one really does not go there for ambiance.
They have an all vegetarian, hot buffet with several traditional breakfast dishes such as idlis, poori aloo, upma, vadas and so on. You can also order a la carte items off the menu. Their Onion Rava Dosa and Mysore Masala Dosa was off the charts good – maybe some of the best I’ve ever had! It is a must try when you go there. I really liked their sambar too , it was a little sweetened and different from what one usually eats.
You will over eat when you go to Palmgrove just as we did but believe me – it is worth every bite.
