“Globalised Chennai is no longer the hamlet-tish Madras of slow days and early nights, quiet avenues and conservative lifestyles. And yet, beneath the gloss lies the old sheen of kapi-tipan [Coffee and Snacks] and Carnatic Music.”
-Biswajit Balasubramanian and Ranjitha Ashok in “Lots to Laugh About”.
When you speak about Chennai; the first thing that comes to mind is the hot lentil puffed pancake “Idly” and Kaapii (Degree Coffee in Tamil Nadu Style).
Chennai has a lot to offer more than employment; and that’s Fooooddd.!!!
