I love south Indian food. One of the reasons why I agree to fly down even for one song is because I get to eat some really good food here. Be it the thaalis, idlis, dosas or the different varieties of chutneys — the food here is to die for. I'd been to Murugan Idli once and I had the softest idlis there.

1001 restaurants you must experiece before you die
But let’s not get sidetracked. A list has been made. It’s in the form of the just-released book: ‘1001 restaurants you must experience before you die.’ And Chennai’s got a mention; two in fact. Dakshin at Park Sheraton and Murugan idli shop. A strange combination? Well, that’s the beauty of lists.

Murugan Idli Shop, known for its soft idlies and different chutnies extends its operations to Besant Nagar, Chennai.

Served with four types of chutneys on a plantain leaf, preserves the authenticity of the south indian cuisine.
Ranked Murugan Idli shop as one of the top restaurants in chennai. The idlies and the pongal bring huge volume of crowd.
When rice & lentils are mixed in the perfect ratio, well soaked, well ground and let fermented perfectly, only then one can get the outcome of such soft idlies.
Looking at the white steamy idlis on the plantain leaf of Murugan Idli Shop, I had a epiphanic moment when beauty and wisdom are revealed.
Those fluffy idlies, crispy uthappams, ghee dripping sweet pongal, and lip smacking coffee are worth the wait.
