Website UBM Namma Veetu Saapaadu
Flavors of meats in Perundurai
The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. – Lao Tzu
Every trip I go on, food is the constant I seek. After hearing a lot about the Namma Veetu Saapaadu, I discussed it with my friends and after much delay we finally decided to hit the road on a blissful day! As usual, Chandan and I, are in the gang. Pick up 2 of our friends to travel with us on this adventure. The travel to the restaurant was not exactly easy but it wasn’t too tough to bear either. We called ahead of our travel booked ourselves a table.
We began our journey at 6:30 in the morning to reach the restaurant by 2:30 in the afternoon. The ambience is more than one city dweller can ask for, highway in the middle of village, with trees around the hotel, an overwhelming crowd eagerly waiting for their turn for a sumptuous Namma Veetu Saapaadu.
The food is homemade, as the restaurant name calls it out, by the lovely host/owners and their helpers. The serving is made on a single plantain leaf at least 4 feet long almost 2 feet wide. Different flavors of each of the meats, chicken, turkey, fish, mutton, egg! Phew! Once the serving starts, it doesn’t stop till the last dish is on the leaf. The speed of serving, number of items served, amount of time you have at the table to finish off the food requires an intelligent and well thought out game plan & strategy! From a foodie to other foodies, here it is: as soon as rice and biriyani is served with first 2 side dish, DIG IN. Don’t wait for photography, your friends can do that for you. Focus on the food completely because there is literally a LOT of it to chow down.
The food seemed to be made from fresh ground ingredients as compared to the usual masala/powders in other restaurants. Instantaneously, you will appreciate yourself for having made the trip. Word of advice, don’t say “no” when you are being served food. If you are from the neighboring cities like Krishnagiri, Dharmagiri, Erode, Coimbatore, Hosur, etc, pretty sure you won’t be impressed with the food since you’d be accustomed to the flavors from the local cuisines.
All in all, if you have an appetite for meat and flavors, this is one place you want to add to your list. The love and hospitality you’ll receive will be worth your time.
(Don’t forget to carry extra water bottles regardless of which season you go there.)
Flavors of meat
Totally worth the 700kms drive for an epic lunch. Go with people with big appetite or you’ll end up wasting food.
