I look at my leaf and sigh with happiness. There are at least 12 varieties of meat including nattu kozhi, mutton, turkey, and duck besides fish and prawns. The thaali priced at Rs.450, is unlimited. Gorge on the mutton chops and spicy mutton kudal curry.

Every day has its special and today it is rabbit. Owner CN Sekar and his brothers are self-declared food lovers and when they decided to start their place, they were determined they will offer a homely experience. “We love to eat. Most of the men in our family, including me, love cooking. And, all the masalas are ground at home.” They called it Nanjai, after their native place Nanjundapuram. Sekar believes in eating the meal right, with the right accompaniments. “Couple that hot rasam with fish fry and moru with mutton sukka!” he instructs. For dessert, relish the ghulkand sweet with curd rice or choose from their pettikadai box that offers thenmuttai, coconut candies, elantha vadai, groundnut mittai and more.
