Have you noticed the gigantic black staircase, with famous Bollywood dialogues written, right in the heart of R.K. Salai? Yes, right above Zuka is this treasure called Fully Local.
Most of you might have tried this restaurant, and some of you might be like “What??” Well, either way, read on about my experience, must-try dishes, and lots more about this restaurant.
What we tried?
Welcome Drink: We had a classic aam panna as the welcome drink from the restaurant. This was just a normal aam panna in a cutting chai glass.
Pani Puri Shots: Typical Pani Puri with Pani in Chai Glasses. Not sure, if this was meant to be done as pani puri shots or not, I used the normal manner of eating pani puri with this as well. This was not the best Pani Puri ever, but it was quite a good appetizer.
Fully Local Paneer: Not sure, if this is the name of the dish, but this was a yummy Paneer Machurian in perfect Chinese taste. This was my favourite. They make the Paneer in-house, yummy and soft.
Assorted Drinks: From mojitos to aam pannas, from paan soda to blue curacao, every mocktail was placed in bulb shaped bottles. I loved the mojito as always.
Mushroom Tikka: A typical, quintessential mushroom tikka, which any mushroom lover would love to eat.
Rajma: Creamy, yummy, full-on Desi Rajma – Perfect to be had with Chawal
Dal Makhani: Slow-cooked Dal that was creamy, yummy, and out-of-the earth tasty. This tastes best with both rice and naan.
Veg Hyderabadi: A spicy, dry gravy, which was perfect for plain, tandoori rotis.
Mix Indian Breads Platter: This had naans, kulchey, and assorted rotis. I loved the chilli garlic naan and the pudhina paratha.
Family Naan: Huge butter naan – the speciality of this is that the naan was soft and yummy even after it went cold. So, it is worth buying.
Saffron Lassi: One word – Out of the World! Please order this as I vouch for this! I finished one bulb by myself.
Kulfi Sticks: Malai Kulfi sticks that are right amount of sweet.
Phirni: It was a little too sweet for my taste, but nevertheless, I loved it.
About the restaurant:
The restaurant was designed to look like a high-end local dhaba. If you are confused how a restaurant named fully local is not serving any cuisine from local Chennai, you are misreading the title. It’s fully local North Indian Khana.
I love this restaurant that I am gonna visit again this weekend with different set of friends.
