ITC Grand Chola in B&W

ITC Grand Chola

I know this is April 2013, so let’s just say I am a bit late in posting this. Because this post should have appeared here at least 6 months back.

So all ready for pretend play?

Let’s rewind time to six months back. That would be November 2012.

Ok, a bit more rewinding. October end last year. Valli had sent across a mail to some of the Chennai bloggers regarding Indiblogger meet happening at the ITC Grand Chola.

I enrolled myself for the meet. Went to the venue on 27th. Met Valli, of course and Radhika of Tickling Palates and some other wonderful bloggers.

It was a fun meet. And there were lots of activities. The ITC staff walked us through the whole place and showed us the rooms, the restaurants, roof top swimming pool and all around.

We walked and walked until our legs ached…honestly! The place was that big.

Like I was telling my friend the other day, my camera obsession has decreased considerably now a days. So I had not even carried the camera to the event.

A.Big.Mistake!

I won’t say I regretted not taking the camera, because I was pulling it off Radhika’s hand half the time :D, but yeah – a camera would have been good!

Before the meet got over, we were all given a gift voucher each. Mine was a voucher for dinner for two at Cafe Mercara, their 24 hour cafe.

When we went there a month later. This time I took my camera with me.

My camera obsession may have faded a bit, but I wasn’t going to let the opportunity go. I clicked to my heart’s content and these are all from that set of pictures.

We went there on our Wedding Anniversary and it was a nice experience.

A big beautiful chandelier, a cosy milk bar, wonderful interiors and arrangements, lots of cups and saucers and a camera in hand….What more can a food blogger ask for!!

The staff was courteous and the food was excellent and filling. At least for me, because my husband doesn’t agree with me there.

I had a good time at the meet as well as the dinner later. Thanks Indiblogger and ITC Grand Chola for the opportunity.

And thanks Valli for the timely reminder :-)

This post goes to Blogging Marathon 27, a month-long marathon this time. Its last week of BM and its time to relax and unwind after three continuous weeks of blogging.

Sadya – B&W Wednesday

Sadya, the traditional feast of Kerala. Featuring the dishes here. You can read more about Sadya here.

The potato curry and mango slices are not usually part of the sadya, but I have added them anyway.

Also, some items like pickle, sharkara varatti, inji curry, pappadam was not in the menu that day.

My mother in law prepared this entire set, with me doing sort of an assistant job.

The dishes are served in a banana leaf traditionally.
