Gopu Iyengar’s, Madurai: Serving Delicious For 80+ Years

While I was researching for our recent trip to Madurai, the name Gopu Iyengar’s popped up often. I read about this all-vegetarian little eatery being touted as one of the best places in Madurai for South Indian snacks, particularly the variety of dosas that they serve and their vellai appam. Of course, we had to include a visit to Gopu Iyengar’s while we were in Madurai!
 
Do check out a detailed account of our experience at this iconic eatery, just in on my photo blog.
 
 

Travel Shot: Kumbakonam Vettalai (Betel Leaves)

Degree coffee is certainly not the only thing that Kumbakonam is famous for, we realised while researching for our recent trip to this temple town.

Apparently, the town also happens to be one of the leading producers of betel leaves and areca nuts. In fact, the betel leaves produced in Kumbakonam are believed to be among the best in the world, as far as quality is concerned.

Read all about our first tryst with the famed vettalai aka betel leaves of Kumbakonam, on my photo blog.
 
 

The Other Azhagar Temple In Madurai: Koodal Azhagar Kovil 

I didn’t get a chance to visit the Azhagar Kovil, about 20 km away from Madurai, on our recent trip. I, therefore, didn’t get a chance to partake of the delicious-sounding Azhagar Kovil dosais, the prasadam

That said, we did visit the Koodal Azhagar temple, the other ‘Azhagar Kovil‘ in Madurai, and sampled the ‘dosai’ here. Check out my detailed post about the Koodal Azhagar dosai

Kapoor’s Cafe, Now At HSR Layout!

After a successful innings in Whitefield (one outlet in Thubarahalli and one on ITPL Road), Kapoor’s Cafe launched a third outlet in HSR Layout recently. I was delighted to be given the opportunity to be part of the new outlet’s launch party, considering that I loved the food at the ITPL Road branch.

Check out my detailed post about the launch party and the food we were served, here!
