There is a new food joint in Mylapore which is not only getting eyeballs but drawing hungry foodies.
R. S. Bhavan is a 10×10 nook hugging a building on Ponambala Vadyar Street, that links South Mada Street to Sri Kapali Temple but it has already made many Mylaporeans its regulars in two months time.
Because, as its promoter R. Subramanian says – its food sticks to age-old, home-made recipes and he does not compromise on the ingredients. Later, Subs, as we call him, let’s us know the real secret – the recipes are of his mother R. Mangalam, a celebrated cook herself in West Mambalam.
For now, the food joint is open from about 3 p.m. serving evening snacks and sweets. The hot seller – three varieties of polis. The dry coconut used is processed at home, skipping the use of readymade stuff. Get these hot-sellers here after 4 p.m.
The sweets are also the home-made variety and fresh, says Subs.
By 7 p.m., the phulkas and curries roll out and they sell hot for dinner. Mostly parcels for home. Four phulkas and two side dishes – Rs.50. Mylaporeans like Malini Mannath say the phulka combo is a steal and good too.
Subs has been running a restaurant by the same name on TTK Road in Alwarpet, opposite Home Centre store. This one caters to office-goers and people who frequent this area.
Once he settles down, he hopes to offer breakfast and meals at the Mylapore nook.
