Ten-Second Takeaway

Southern Food Trail is the latest home dining experience to hit the suburbs of Mumbai – bringing authentic South Indian food prepared at the chef’s home and served on a typical banana leaf.

A Taste Of South India

Formed out of passion for cooking a cuisine so dear to his heart, Sai, the chef and the organiser started this home dining experience only recently. Following its soft launch, the first home dining experience opened on Saturday September 23. This will for the time being will happen only the weekends, so people can take the time out to come and enjoy this experience.

According to him, it’s more of a social dining experience, wherein anyone and everyone is welcome to make reservations with him. He generally serves the typical food that one may find at Iyer weddings – served on a big banana leaf.
