My experiments in Dining - Mylapore Mami Kadai

Recently I had been to Mylapore to buy some books and CDs from Giri Trading. After the purchase thought of having the dinner at Karpagambal Mess. However when I went there came to know that Mess is under renovation and some body near the mess told me to visit Mami Kadai in the same locality. I decided to give it a try and entered the lane near the Bharathiya Vidya Bhavan.
The Mess is a small one and behind the cashier could able to see the photos of two aged couples. I have been told that this mess is there for morethan forty years. I paid the amount in advance and then went to the counter wherein the server gives what we need. I took some Kal Dosai and Sundal and Sambar and Chutni is kept separately and we can take whatever the quantity we need. Except the drawback of ambience and stand to eat, the food served is homely and delicious. The prices are economical.
The following items are available :

Breakfast (from 7 am)

Fresh idli vadai, poori, pongal and unlimited chutneys and sambar

Lunch (11 am to 3 pm)

Coconut rice, tamarind rice, lime rice, curd rice, vendakkasadam, pavakkasadam, avvaraikkasadam, kathirikkasadam and pudinasadam ( Rs 13 / plate ) and side dishes are vadam, morumillagai and pachadi.

Varieties of dosas : Onion, rawa, masala, podi, kaldosai, vadai, thavalavadai, sevai, masalavadai, bajji, parotta korma, chapatti korma, sundal, vadai curry. Kozhakkattai both sweet and sour available only on Fridays after 3.30 pm. They also have a sweet of the day which could be kesari, carrot halwa, sooyam, mysorepak or ladoo.
