There’s an excited chatter as diners wait for the counters to be thrown open for the second day of the Biryani Fest.
With some of the 10 best biryani brands offering their fare, lovers of the dish are keen to get their hands on a portion for themselves.
This time though, we had people from as far as Puducherry and Tiruvallur come in to try the biryani and take away parcels.”
My friend, who’s only come along because I wanted to eat biryani, has already worked his way through six of them and is looking to sample the remaining four too,” she laughs.
For Dr Ramya Ravindran, of Kodambakkam, the Fest gives her an opportunity to eat the Tamil Muslim style biryani that’s served at weddings.
