KadambaVanam an Exotic Ethinic Resort









Must thank my friends Satheesh & Krishore for taking me to this exotic resort Kadambavanam which is located 25 KM from Madurai on natham road…

First of all kudos to the wonderful climate where in tiny hills were covered by mist which otherwise would be hot during summer…

It was wonderful scenic view of hills and villages… Resort has an ayyanar temple with lot other goda and navagraha… It was like a garden temple surrounded by lawns..

It had a auditorium which could accomidate some 100 + people… Also rooms were neat and economical….

Then went to the restaurent which had local villagers who didnt have an hotel management degree to cater… But their hospitality was far superior… Also the food was good and also was the bill… I’ve shelled out 4 times of what i paid in Chennai resorts…

Since we went on a weekday there was no buffet and cultural events… But i was told weekends has events like folk dance, parrot astrology, bharadanatiyam and many more traditional events…

After our lunch we climbed a tiny hill right on the restaurent… We were told food would be  served on the hills too…

For those of you in Madurai or visiting madurai please dont miss the spot…

Ente Keralam Experience

Last week I went to Ente Keralam restaurant at Poes Garden for Dinner along with my CFO Mr.Bala Murugan. We have passed that way a many times and we always think we have to visit that restaurant once. But every time when we were hungry this restaurant doesn’t strike us and we visit normal Saravana Bhavan or some other restaurants. 

Last week after a hectic day I & Bala thought we needed to get out for dinner to relax. Surprisingly Bala remembered about Ente Keralam & we immediately drove from office to the restaurant. 

Immediately entering the restaurant I was carried away by the ambience. It gave a feeling as if we have entered into Kerala. After getting settled we were so hungry that we ordered immediately. Bala said Kerala is known for Stew and we ordered for Appam, 1 Veg Stew & 1 Chicken Stew. 

I was so hungry that I was unable to wait till the food comes. By that time they kept two varieties of Kerala Chips as Complimentary for Starters. This helped me to half fill my stomach. 

Then arrived Appam & Veg Stew and it was so delicious. Bala was also happy with Chicken Stew. Then I ordered Fruit Punch as dessert & Bala ordered Payasam and both were a treat to our taste buds. 

Finally we got bill which was also nominal. So this place has got thumbs up from us and we will frequent this place to try other recipes too in future. 

Upon going through the menu we came to know this restaurant is a part of Oriental Cuisines which runs China Town, Zara Tapas, Hot Breads, Benjarong in Chennai.
