"The President" @ KaraikudiMany days i ve been searching a good vegetarian restaurant at Karaikudi......, many suggested Malli, Annalakshmi, arya bhavan, aryas ....but all worth nothing but a regular tasteless dishes !!!!
Finally i found The happening place, Most busiest Dhaba / restaurant / fast food / Tiffin center ......you can call it what u feel like!!! but the wonder is almost its packed with guest at all the time, located just opposite to Pandiyan theater, when you enter the small pathway in between the complex ....you will be wondering why there is so much of people in this place.......cause there is nothing fascinating but you see a hostel mess like!!!!!
Just few thatched roof sheds, one is with more than 15 to 20 cooks on fire handling the ranges and more than 50 people waiting at the counter for parcel, the next big shed with small tables and chairs on the top of river sands (no flooring though!!!!) can accommodate 60 pax and in the open air you will find lot of chairs & table for 50 pax.......of course there are always people standing outside to wait for their seat!!!!
There is always a unique point that when you stimulated the peoples taste bud.....you don't need anything more to showcase your place......
Okie just enter to the world of Presidents menu:
Morning breakfast just like any other place same varieties but with good chutney varieties,
Lunch - No meals but Variety rice with Tiffin varieties, and no wonder they serve many unique Indian & Tandoori varieties ....here what they succeeded cause at a affordable prize they serve tasty Indian food and that's why its always full with family guests i guess!!!!
The evening snack parade with appam, paniyaram, kuzhalappam, idiyappam, adai avial, then kuzhal, ......etc almost many chettinad snacks with very less of oil ( in general every place its with too much oil, including in their homes- many time i got in to trouble eating at chettinad home)
The most wanted is their dinner with full board menu, especially their Idlys & parathas, much soft and less oil like a sponge ......dont miss to start your dinner with this!!!
Varieties of dosa - my choice is always the Poondu dosa (garlic dosa) , apart they have paneer, masala, mushroom, gobi, vegetable dosa and adai avial, idiyappam kurma....... chilly paratha, kothu paratha, kalan paratha....etc,
North indian dishes like naan, gravy, Dry dishes followed with choola puri and many more....
The price is much much cheaper than anywhere the best place i know in these sector and the quality and quantity is much superior !!!!
and you never have to wait at any point of time for your next dish and its as quick as you expect and its just been prepared in front of you !!!
So next time you visit Karaikudi dont miss to step in to Mr. President........
