Try special ‘vazhai ilai’ lunch at Thaligai restaurant served during weekends

Thaligai restaurant at Luz Church Road, Mylapore has re-introduced its popular weekend ‘vazhai ilai’ lunch – ‘Kalyana Thaligai’ and ‘Alankara Thaligai’ in its menu.

Traditionally served on a banana leaf, ‘Kalyana Thaligai’ (Wedding lunch) will include 26 different delicacies including a welcome drink (panagam, lime juice), sweet pachadi, payasam, paruppu boli, two varieties of poriyal, thayir pachadi, sambhar, vathakulambhu and more.

A grand lunch called ‘Alankara Thaligai’, that includes pakoda, medu vadai, and a variety of veggies will also be available on Saturdays or Sundays.

Says Nalina Kannan, owner of the restaurant, “Nowadays, as most weddings or other functions take place at homes, people may be missing the grand lunch, usually served during these occassions. In such cases, they can drop in to have Kalyana Thaligai at our restaurant.”

All the dishes are made the traditional way. “Also, we serve food in a slow-paced manner, so that one can leisurely enjoy the taste of each dish. People can also interact with our staff to know the recipe of some of the dishes, while having food,” she says.

A ‘Kalyana Thaligai’ is priced at Rs 500 (excluding taxes). Available on all Saturdays and Sundays from 11. 30 am to 3 pm. Necessary precautions are taken at the restaurant to prevent virus spread.
