Kapaleeswarar Temple eat street
As far as Chennai’s vegetarian street food is concerned, there is no better area to visit than the streets that surround the popular Kapaleeswarar Temple in Mylapore. The temple’s evening prasadam (or religious offerings) such as puliyodharai (tamarind rice) or curd rice are considered a delicacy and are popular among devotees. However, once you step out of the complex, there are dozens of popular stalls selling all kinds of street food ranging from the popular idli/dosa to traditional sweets and savouries. Whether you head to popular stalls such as Jannal Kadai (Window Shop) for some hot pongal or stop by the hole-in-the-wall Kalathi News Mart for some frothing rose milk, you’ll never run out of options here.
