Delicious days: Mahabhalipuram Cafes

May 9, 2013
I have some sort of inexplicable magnetic pull towards beaches. I could sit and stare at the sea for hours without getting bored. And surprisingly even the hot, humid, coastal weather doesn’t seem to bother me anymore. Add to that some delicious food and am in heaven.Seaside restaurants are my favorite! Luckily such options were plenty for me over the last year.These pics were shot at Radison Blu (a five star luxury resort) which was the last thing I expected to find in the ancient little town of Mahabhalipuram. It was cloudy drizzly morning, but even a hurricane couldn’t have stopped us from going and attacking their breakfast spread, which, needless to say was yummy-licious!

But more than this, the cozy little Indo-french cafes and restaurants are a must visit in Mahabhalipuram. So if you ever head that way visit…

Le Yogi – for their pasta and sizzlers (both veg and non-veg)
La pizzeria de mama – for their chilly potato and pizza with eggplant
Sunrise Cafe – for their cheese omelet and gobi (cauliflower) with white sauce

…My top three favorites!

The decor has a very rustic-thatched roof-paper lantern vibe. Very exotic and chic.. You can kick back and relax with a game of scrabble or uno, which are provided by them.

And while I dream of all those amazing dinners and brunches I had there and get all weepy.. you can enjoy the pics below!

    I know that feeling…. There is something about beaches which just calms you down, makes you wanna stay there forever 🙂

    Somehow (the very particular and choosy me) always loves the sea side shacks. I dont know if its really the food or its about the ambiance…
