More than anything, it is the peace of sitting down and having an array of options to hog from after a long day at the mall, that you crave for always. Chennai Citi Centre in Mylapore, in spite of being one of the oldest malls in the city, too doesn't disappoint when it comes to food. They even have a rooftop setting for you to take in the view of the sea while gorging on your favourite dishes. Here's a list of eateries you can check out while you are there.
Grab A Bite At These Eateries
For the love of tradition, but with a little twist, head to Dosa Wrap on the ground floor. As the name suggests, it is a wrap but not your regular pita bread or tortilla or paratha.
