Newest Restaurants To Check Out!

No amount of food is enough food and no matter how many restaurants might be around, we are always on the lookout for something new. Luckily, for us, the food loves the city as much as we love food, with every corner sprouting a new cafe, takeaway joint or a restaurant. Here's a compilation of the newest restaurants that you can check out in 2020. 

The Big Barbeque

There's a new barbeque place in town and it sure looks lit! With over 180 food dishes to savour, it goes without saying you are bound to feel spoilt for choice at this OMR restaurant. We hear there's live grilled octopus too! Exotic, isn't it?  Find more barbeque places in Chennai here. 

Shout Bar & Cafe

A newly opened restobar in Ramapuram, this place has a little something for everyone. Pool table, board games, live music, private dining area, gaming area - it does sound like a total fun paradise. The menu is a mix of Chettinad, Continental and Asian cuisine. We hear there's a separate area for kids to play too and a lounge for adults to party. We cannot wait to check this out.

Lo Cal By Dumbell

Located right above the Mexicano Griller in Nungambakkam, Lo Cal By Dumbell categorises itself as a fitness food restaurant offering dishes like whole-wheat pasta, broccoli fritters, zucchini wraps and more. They've got a whole range of healthy desserts too! Their blend-it-yourself cycles let you pedal away and blend your own shakes and juices. Totally trying this one out.

The Cycle Gap

Nizam Palace

As the name suggests, Nizam Palace in OMR is all about Andhra cuisine right from their aromatic biryanis and kebabs to pulao and chaaps. However, it is the ambience that catches your eye. It might not look much from the outside with its squarish yellow building, but the real magic takes place when you enter. With their arched walls, golden lighting, white couches and gold-plated mirrors, you will definitely feel like you're in a palace.

Undercover

A rustic bar in the heart of Guindy, Undercover gives the vibes of some shady places in Ireland where detectives might go to grab a drink. But don't let that fool you! This place has got it right from imported drinks to bar bites. Their grilled basil chicken is a must-try along with their kebabs. They go well with the whiskey too. It is a calm place with soft music; perfect for catching up after work. 

Via Mumbai

Taste of Bombay right here in Chennai. Head to Via Mumbai in Anna Nagar for some Mumbai street eats and Parsi home food. The little yellow building colourful interiors, velvet seating and old school Parsi dhaba-style decor is everything. They serve authentic Mumbai vada pav and pav bhaji right here. Don't forget to try out some Parsi berry pulao while you are at it!
