The popular Parvathi Bavan Sweets has now moved to a commercial complex on Eldams Road. The shop is spacious, is well-organised and neatly maintained.
Earlier, the 40-year-old sweet and savouries shop was located at the junction of TTK Road and Murray’s Gate Road. It used to be a sought-after hang out for many people seeking tasty snacks.
Arunachalam, branch supervisor, said, “We were asked to vacate the old premises from where the shop had been functioning for the past 32 years. The building is going to be demolished.”
In the new location at Eldams Road, there are limited tables and chairs for in-house snacking. Also allows for friends or office colleagues to converse.
Parvathi Bavan is famous for the tasty ‘motta’ south Indian mixture. Chips varieties, samosas, cutlets, pakodas, murukku varieties, traditional sweets like jangri, Mysore Pak and dry fruit halwa varieties are popular too.
Poli, made in the evening, is their signature dish which draws lots of people.
Though Parvati Bavan’s core business is sweets and savouries, it also sells Chaat items like Pav Bhaji, Pani puri, Masala Puris and Channa Masala, among others.
Parvathi Bhavan has added burgers, sandwiches and pizzas to its menu.
There is a kiosk which serves freshly brewed coffee, tea and fresh juices.
While Chaat items will be available from 1.30pm, poli varieties are on sale 4 pm onwards.
Manikantan T. is the owner of Parvathi Bavan and this brand has outlets in Anna Nagar (the first branch), Virugambakkam and in Saligramam.
The shop is open all days of the week from 10 am to 9 pm.
