Chennai Food Guide Launched

Kingfisher lent its name for the Bangalore Good Food Guide. The Hindu’s Metro Plus does something similar (?) for the Chennai Food Guide. Yummy Stuff:

For Foodies it definitely is an important day because for the first time they will be served a useful and usable food guide. Its 276 pages bristle with information that will make your life more interesting. Meticulously put together, the MetroPlus Food Guide is divided into two parts.

Part 1 is "The Restaurant Guide" which not only has well-written and insightful restaurant reviews with ratings, but also extremely essential information such as cost per meal, home delivery services, valet parking, house specialties, credit card facilities and so on.

Availability of buffet, alcohol, vegetarian or non-vegetarian is clearly indicated by user-friendly symbols. So, in this section (which runs alphabetically) you have all categories of restaurants that span cuisines and areas. I am especially delighted about this section and will carry this book with me every time I am here so that I can easily navigate my way through the food map of the city.

  • All these food guides must be supplemented by a website online where content must be updated to provide current information to users.Any additional material must be available for printing(Adobe PDF) so that readers can take it away to use with their hard copy.

    Eden in Besant Nagar,Chennai is my favourite.

  • @Echo,
    Good news for the stomach?

    @Anand Srini,
    Point taken. But the folks at Metro Plus would think that if the stuff is made avlbl online, people might not actually buy the book (which is priced at Rs. 150). Atleast they could put up basic information like rating, type of cuisine, address, pricing etc so that people can add in their comments and views.

    @Princess,
    hmmmm....lot of people are gonna envy you. I think Suriya looks better without the mush.

  • The MEtro Plus food guide is very useful. Most of the time we end up going to either Mainland China or Cascade or Sangeetha. This book gives a comprehensive list of restraunts. So you can actually plan your eating out with friends adn family. Reasonably priced too. Will be made the best use by IT people and business men to stay in star hotel and eat in outside restraunts. Good effort by the Food Guide Team, Sonali, ChitraDeepa, Mukund and Marien. Keep it up and do come out with yet another edition. It is sure to be a big hit.
