Panamarathu Briyani Kadai:

Many of us would have tasted briyani. This shop is famous for their Dhum Briyani. But the Dhum is done with palm leaf. Since the essence of palm leaf goes into the briyani, it adds a separate flavor to it.

Cost- Rs.120/-

Bombay sweets:

We actually got bored and went on for a hunt towards snacks items. Though we have tried various places, this is the best place to munch on. From sweets to spice, this shop had all. Started at 1911, this still serves the best snacks for those who want to rejuvenate.

British Bakery:

This has nothing to do with the British. The Cafe got the name, since it served British Dishes for Madurai people at low prices. But now they are serving Chinese and other street dishes across the globe.

Sulthan Briyani:

In Sulthan, you can get hot briyani till 4 am in the morning. The best destination to get Briyani at Madurai during late nights.

Konar Kari Dosa:

Kari dosa is one of the heaviest food that I have taken during this trip. Kari dosa is the mixture of mashed meat, onion, and eggs stuffed in dosa.

That is how I ended my two day food trip to Madurai. A sleepless city with lot of food items to explore. Every corner and every nook has great food. I never knew how Madurai people could not get fat by eating at these hotels. Foodies, here is your heaven!
