Start Your Day With A Breakfast of Champions At The Popular Sangeetha
What Makes It Awesome
Known for empty seats being taken over in minutes, Sangeetha is a must-visit if you live in Chennai or even just visiting the city. The restaurant is clean and modest with every busy staff — it can get a tad bit crowded on the weekends, but don’t worry, they offer seating while you wait.
One look at the menu and you will be in tizzy as to what to order from the big list. As if the dishes on the menu weren’t enough to cure your hanger pangs, they have huge posters of their special juices calling out to you, especially on hot days. Don’t miss out on the authentic vegetarian dishes here. Go simply south and order the crispy medu vada, podi dosa or the popular rice lentil dish pongal. Wash it down with a hot tumbler of filter kaapi and you’re set! Or if you’re not, come in during the afternoons and try the lunch thalis (both south Indian and north Indian), rice dishes like sambar rice and curd rice, and sandwiches to north Indian delicacies, chaats, lassis, desserts and even sweets by the kilo!
Apart from the breakfast and snacks, be sure to try out their special juices and kheers (more like badam milk and rose milk). Their pineapple kesari and Andhra pesarattu is also worth a try. The sweets from their store are mouth-watering and made of pure ghee. A big breakfast at Sangeetha will only set you back by an amount under INR 150. Also, the good thing is that Sangeetha has several branches in the city, so you can pick one closest to you, and make an early morning trek for breakfast.
