Velachery's Uncle Mess

With Mami's mess cornering all the glory in the food world, can Uncle's mess be far behind? For long, Uncle's mess has been famous in velachery - catering to the ever burgeoning bachelor population. They were previously operating out of Dhaneshwaram and the current place is behind ICICI bank, Vijay Nagar bus terminus. We went around 12. 45 p.m, there were few people around. But by 1 pm, the mess became very crowded. Guess.. North Indian culinary has an the upper hand. Soft chappathis with two very tasty subjis, sambar vada, poriyal, mor kozhambu, rasam, curd completed the simple menu. I would have preferred a sambar, extra poriyal/kootu. Anyways, the food had the home-made feel and a certain freshness associated with it. Overall Rs.45/- well spent. The 'Uncle' sits with the curd cups and appalams. He seems to be very shrewd, he could spot me as a new customer and in the course of our meal, he kind-a of urged me to come in the evening to taste aloo paratha (which uncle's mess is famous for).

Uncle's Mess is famous for Aloo Paratha and Kulfi. It is absolutely lip smacking! I have been their regular from the time they operated for Rs. 25 ( Unlimited Dinner Buffet) and not it is Rs. 55! Good Post!

Krishnan: No. Uncle's mess is on the right cut next to ICICI bank.

Archana: Yeah..But I guess people who have an appetite for unlimited aloo parathas will find 55/- cheaper ;-)

Have'nt tried Mami's mess. Uncle's mess is nice, uncle is nice and the food is nice. I heard the take-away is also priced at Rs.45/- and he includes 3 chappathis in it....
