Crimson Chakra,Chennai | Restaurant Review

I am not very particular when it comes to dining out.Only thing I do however ask for is a good vegetarian selection in the menu for myself since I am the lone vegetarian in our friends gang.I was given the option to choose which restaurant to go,for my birthday dinner and I chose Crimson Chakra.

Having heard a lot,a LOT about Crimson Chakra from folks in CFG made the decision easier.To make sure Ajay and our friends were happy too,I did a check on the popular dishes there and suggested they order those.To say they were highly impressed would be putting it lightly.
Crimson Chakra,Chennai We I ordered Paneer Tikka as the starter while the non veg starters were Cheese Chicken Tikka and a Spiced Chicken soup with lemongrass.Must say the first impression was good.Since the restaurant has a very homely feel,we relished the food taking our sweet time to finish the food before ordering the next course.

The person who took our order was a very friendly one who suggested we go for half portions,probably seeing the licked clean plates and our happy stomach rubbing gestures.Yes,they serve half portions too,what a lovely idea!

I went for the much talked about Smoked Rice.Though it looks just like a Veg Biryani,one spoon and you'll instantly know it is better,way better than a Biryani.With a sharp smokey flavor and just rightly spiced,this one comes with a raita but you can have it without any accompaniments.Tasted delicious!
Crimson Chakra,Chennai Now comes the star of the day night.The famous Yelaneer Souffle.I really don't know if words are enough to sing praises about this.When it came to the table,Ajay passed it off as it looked too plain and almost like a bowl of curd.I haven't tasted anything like it before,that I can tell.Tastes like sweetened tender coconut and cream and luscious,oh man,the birthday dinner was so worth it!
