The Board room cafe – Unique games and yummy Vegetarian food 😍

Board room cafe has become the new hangout spot of the season The cafe is a dedicated space for board game enthusiasts. The boardroom is widely used by Top Corporate for their board meetings and training Programmes and also organizes events like stand-up comedy, music performances, etc.

Its a Board Game Cafe with over 250 games, that serves teas, pasta, paninis, and snacks. The food is yummy, the tea is one of (if not the) the best in the region, the ambiance homely and welcoming. This cafe is run by three founders Sriram, Varun and Shravan.

The Boardroom Cafe is genuinely a nice place where you’ll feel welcome and receive good service and quality. Also, the owners may be three of the most wonderful people you’ll ever meet. They help you out to explain the games patiently with a big smile in their faces. I wish them all the best, and a flourishing success to them.

When i got a invite to visit Board room I was totally excited as never visited a place full of games and food combination. Nowadays everyone busy with their own life busy schedule. Its the best place to spend amazing time together with family and friends to make memories. The place is nicely decorated and based on a unique concept and the place is quite attracting.

Ambiance is amazing:

All I can say is if you want to hang out with your friends, have a good laugh, chill and play games, this place is right for you! They have many board games that we customers can choose, and it isn’t just the normal board games we all know. The whole interior design of the cafe is great with wooden table and chairs instead of the cushion as well as we can sit for long and relax. I mean, the place is big enough for a huge number of friends, the only thing that bothers me is the chats off each crowd just mixes to one another causing huge noise pollution. But if you want to play and enjoy downstairs also in the cafe.

Once you start playing board games here I assure you that you and your gang will play and stay there until the whole cafe closes. They are plenty of quality board games for all ages and tastes, Its really enjoyable time with friends or family. Amazing and Commendable service and the people are helpful with the games and rules. Cost is affordable as well. Food: I am so happy as they have all vegetarian food. They have different varieties of teas, pasta, paninis, and sandwiches.

I tried Rajma rice, Marinara pasta, Spicy red garlic bruschetta ……The presentation of food is great and tasted amazing.

I liked the delicious taste of red pasta with the cream cheese..

Rajma rice could have been more spicy and less cook.

I also loved the ginger lemon tea which Improves Immune System. Check out their menu

Board games:

We played a game called patchwork, which involved earning coins, buying building blocks and filling up our board with the blocks, while progressing step by step on a spiral track.
When a player takes an action that moves his time token to the central square of the time track, he takes one final button income from the bank. Once both players are in the center, the game ends and scoring takes place. Each player scores one point per button in his possession, then loses two points for each empty square on his game board. Scores can be negative. The player with the most points wins.

Next, we played a card game, trying to have a full set of one type of cards while exchanging unwanted cards by auction like one to one, two to two, with other players. Had amazing fun playing with Srinidhi, Karthik Pasupathi, and others.

Finally, we played a game called “High Society” wherein the objective is to spend our money to buy various luxuries of life, avoid negative card, bid and buy deck has a dark green background – the three prestige cards, and the Scandal card. Players are socialites trying to live as lavishly and frivolously as possible, outbidding each other to prove they are living life to the fullest. At the end of the game, the poorest player (or players) will be cast out of the group. The remaining player who has managed to become the most fashionable, by collecting the highest value status cards, will earn the envy of all and win the game. As soon as the fourth one is revealed, the game ends immediately, with no bidding for the revealed card.

Check the collection of board games There were also traditional games available here !!!

Overall

At last, What I loved about this place is their neatly done creative interior……..
Location is simply banging on as it is opposite to luz corner which easily gathers college crowd.
The menu is pricey as compared to the spending capacity of a teenager

I rate 4/5 overall. I request to add some more dishes.

Overall good for teenagers as well as families as they have lots of board games to play around…

There are soooo many NEW and super COOL things at the cafe!!! A lot of International board games!! Hurry up friends check them out!!

Board Room Snacks and Games Cafe is still HIGHLY recommended because of the great atmosphere they have. The most perfect part of this cafe is the moments you and your friends will create while dining. If they’ll just upgrade the taste of their food and add some more varieties, I am a hundred percent sure that they’ll be one of the best eats in town!

The buffet, kick-started with a daily-changing special range of soups. That day, we tried out the,‘Cream of Spinach and Mushroom Soup’ the sweet-sour taste, with mushrooms split afloat in the soup gives us the perfect combo!

For starters, they had it us served at our table, hot and fresh! It consisted of a wide range of products, beginning with ‘Paneer Tikka’, the soft and masaledaar paneer, served grilled, with grilled onions, capsicums and tomatoes to top them. Its combination with green-mint chutney is heavenly.

Spring Roll’, these fried little chops which consists of fine-veggies, with soy sauce, which is served hot and tasted better with the tomato ketchup and indulges our taste-buds to an adventurous start.

‘Cheese Corn Nuggets’, as the name suggests is a blend of cheese and corn fried into nuggets. This one would be an all-time favourite for the ones who love cheese. The satisfaction when you cut open these nuggets with drooling melted cheese will awe you.

‘Baby Corn Varuval’, is the tangy-fusion of the Westo-Indie spices, baby corn is fried with gram flour-coating and is presented in the form similar to that of a south-Indian varuval.

Biryani and Pachadi).

They also had a live-counter, which was deliciously hand-made by the chef, the dish served on that day was our all-time favourite, Pav Bhaji, served with onions and lemon.

The icing on the cake was the Desserts Section, which seemed like an ocean full of varieties, waiting to be gobbled up. We literally didn’t know where to start from, the options available to attack were, Sweets (Dry Jamun, Semiya Payasam, Barfis),Pastries (Choco-Orange, White Forest), Fruits (Water-Melons, Pineapples, Pumpkins and Bananas). The Desserts section also included the likes of Ice-Creams (Vanilla with Chocolate sauce) and Mojitos (Sweet Lime, Kiwi and Strawberry)

Beat The Heat With Cream Chemistry – Ice cream parlour!!

I’ve always had a sweet tooth, and wish to explore all the sweetness in the city. Recently, I wanted to celebrate my daughter’s birthday, and we decided to try out this new place, Cream Chemistry, located at multiple places in Chennai- Besant Nagar and Anna Nagar. We decided to visit the latter and to our surprise, the place was such well built with creative interiors, it impressed us on another level instantly.

The menu had so many variations and options of ice cream that it was hard to order anything specific, so we decided to order some, and were totally excited to try it out.

So, we tried out these few many ice creams and shakes.

1. KIWI LAND :

Simply, one of the best ice creams for all the kiwi lovers, the ice cream is mashed into four cylindrical rolls with the kiwi squash is used as dressing on top of the rolls gives it a very appealing look, wanting to gobble it as soon as possible.

2. TANGO MANGO:

The perfect flavour for the perfect season. Tango mango gives you a ripe and a fruitful ride through its khatta-meetha taste that gives a soothing and sparking flavour to your taste buds. It is definitely in my must-try list.

3. OREO CREAM:

The word “OREO” itself makes us have an exceeding expectation from the product. To be honest it does not defy its expectations and gives us a good treat. The serving as usual was phenomenal. The chocolate sauce used for dressing, gives it a chocolatey taste to oreo, which makes it up a deadly combo!

4. CHOCOLATE LOVE:

As, the name suggests, people who love chocolate would love this. The serving consists of your favorite, chocolate ice cream rolled into, with a brownie cake on top of them, dipped in chocolate sauce gives it a mouth-watering and craves us. This one also features in my must-try list.

5. CHARCOAL:

The most trending flavour currently around Chennai, and in this particular one, there is a fusion of charcoal and Nutella that creates such an irresistible taste. It is served with yummy and colourful sugar crunchies. Its our families favourite Icecream so far😍

6. NUTTY CHOCOLATE SHAKE:

The blend of nuts and chocolate and milk is always a mind-bobbling one, which can refresh any mind at any moment. This drink also has all the nutrients in the world that makes you feel energised and can fill your stomach. It is served in a ‘test-tube’ glass which looks appealing and phenomenal.

7. PAN BANARAS:

What can be better if we don’t end with a pan? The Pan Banaras is the hand-made ice cream where ingredients like gulkand, pan(squashed) and ice cream. Topped with white chocolate chips, gives it an amazing taste. This also makes to my must-try list.

On the whole, this was one of my greatest experience exploring stuffs in Chennai. I would also rank this place highest in terms of ice creams, a must-visit place with your friends and family

Teasers – Breaking the bubble

When I heard of TEASERS ♥️ , located at Forum Vijaya Mall , I was so much excited to visit the shop and try it …. Its a unique and creative outlet as the name says TEAsers, they make yummy drinks with the uniqueness of tea and bubble beads, which bursts and gives a unique flavour that your taste-buds cannot wait to relish. These innovative drinks are also healthy and delicious. We totally loved it to the core and enjoyed it.

History of TEAsers :

TEAsers offers an exotic variety of bubble tea with range of refreshing fruit flavours & milk based teas served with cold or hot tapioca bubbles/balls. This is a popular and evolutionary drink that is served with delicious nudge to tea infusions. They use freshly brewed tea leaves from the finest manufactures and the fruit flavours concentrates that go into the drink along with the popping bobas are acquired from their loyal established partners who manufacture the same with very high standards.



Woman behind TEAsers:

TEAsers has also expanded to online ordering and delivery. It boasts of signature products ranging from delicious double-chocolate pudding milk tea to healthy choices such as yakult green teas, with the added effort to lower the calories while maintaining the best value for its customers. All components are 100% vegetarian. The credits for coming up with this kind of an innovation goes to a woman, Ms. Kripa, who has set herself as an example for other women. TEAsers have been started in Vadapalani, Ambattur, Nungambakkam and  Coimbatore. Best wishes Kripa for much more.

Popping Bobas:

At TEAsers we call them “NaughTEA Bobas”. These are small juice balls that add the much needed twist to the drink. The shell is made from Seaweed extract, with delicious fruit burst flavours inside!

Tapioca pearls :

They are small marble sized black chewy toppings found at the bottom of your bubble tea. They can sometimes be found to be white or transparent depending on the ingredients of the pearl. We at TEAsers use the black pearl which includes sweet potato, cassava root and brown sugar.


Bubble TEA :

Bubble tea was originally created as a tea-based drink that was invented in the 1980’s in tea shops in Taichung, Taiwan. As in the name, most bubble tea drinks contain a tea base mixed with fruit flavor or milk. TEAsers introduces this wonderfully tasting drink to all age groups; from school going toddlers, fun loving youths, happily wedded couples and to the gracious grandparents. Bubble tea ,also known as pearl milk tea, bubble milk tea, boba tea, or simply boba. That’s an interesting one with so many varieties to choose. They had two major kinds, the one with the milk and the one without the milk. If you don’t like the smell of the milk then you can go for the one without the milk in which the flavours are strong. I personally loved the milk base though.

My favourite bubble tea :

After a dilemma, I finally came up with a drink that impressed me, I ordered
based bubble tea with honey dew flavored with grape jelly . It was really wonderful and tempting. . Its immensely satisfying when the slippery balls stream up the straw and fill your mouth. You will find yourself slurping pointlessly (and loudly) at the dregs to hoover up every last drop, until you realize sadly that the experience was over.

I also tried Chocolate milk bubble tea with tapioca, Lychee fruit bubble tea with mango boba which were So yummy and totally refreshing!.. Both were upto the mark and of good quality: the tea was tasty, and the bubbles were nice and soft. You can choose the type of Bobas you want. There are the chewy ones, the soft ones like water bubbles, the jelly kinda ones and many other varieties of boba. They also serve Madras Mudka Tea , cookies and some other Hot Beverages too.

Melting cookie purely veg with vanilla icecream:

Cookies and vanilla ice-cream base are not as creamy as regular ice cream
so when they melt, they do so cleaner and quicker,,, It was so delicious with the amazing ultimate melt in your mouth which makes us visit again and again..

I love this place the bubble tea is super tasty and is really good! Plus the atmosphere is super cute! It’s well decorated …. Even a diabetic can drink here! Just ask our Bubble makers to add half sugar or make it sugar free. I highly recommend this place!

The Patiala House – Food Journey to Punjab

Do you Want to have a Punjabi affair of food? And most importantly in
Chennai? Then you have less to think about! Here’s a new restaurant with a
Punjabi twist. The perfect decorum and mix up of spices in the best way
possible, makes this restaurant one of the top picks in Chennai. When we entered the floor was quite full so I am glad we made a reservation ahead. The place is very vibrating, staff so helpful and friendly.
The menu served here is mainly Indian and Chinese. One of the main reasons for its popularity is the delicious food items which are prepared using the correct blend of spices.


The most important factor of any restaurant anywhere in world would be, its venue and the interior designing of the place. “THE PATIALA HOUSE” ticks in all the boxes in the above aspects. Situated at Chetpet , this will become a sure shot hub of some amazing food.


Starting off with the starters, they provide multiple varieties of soups, off which the Manchow soup, hot & sour soup and lime coriander soups stands out from the rest.

They also got the best-in-town paneer classics that would definitely impress and to name a few of the top picks, Achari panner, Schezwan paneer and Dragon paneer.

Apart from paneer-classics some other mind-bobbling starters include Butter baby corn, Veg. Galoti kebab and stuffed dingri are the starters that you definitely shouldn’t miss.
I bet you will be so much in love with the starters that you will repeat the
order!! You must definitely try this new syringe paani puri..

Moving to the main course, the much awaited Punjabi star dish of Sarso Da Saag and Makkai Di Roti, and adding on to that, the combo of Pudina Paratha/Garlic Naan and the Patiala Paneer/dal makhani makes your tongue go crazy and is definitely worth a try.

The Punjabis however don’t crave much for rice-varieties but the
PATIALA HOUSE does not lack in these varities and the Veg. Tawa Pulav is the best pick of all the rice varieties out there. The perfect blend of spices and paneer, makes it the must-have dish.


Finishing things on a sweet note is as important as how MS Dhoni
finishes things for the Indian cricket team. Yes!! I am talking about the
irresistible desserts! As expected, the lassi and chaas(buttermilk) would be on the cards for a typical Punjabi restaurant.

But the highlight of this restaurant is the varieties and combinations of the desserts. The types of lassi available were, Sweet Lassi, SPL. Lassi, Kaake di Lassi and others, of which these three I tried impressed me the most. The restaurant also offers handful varieties of ice-creams, mojitos and mocktails. The paan ice of Patiala house, is the best ever I have ever had. There is nothing better than that. The combinations of mojitos
and mocktails also impress me the most and the names of these mocktails creates a different level of curiosity within us.


The Fire and Ice mocktail, as the name suggests is a blend of sweet and
spice with sugar coated at the brim of the glass and chillies and ice cubes
floating making the mocktail really spicy. It burns down the throat and gives
you chills. Maybe they couldn’t have chosen a better name than this for this
mocktail.


There are varieties of shots available too. The one that impressed me the
most was the pan-flavoured shots. The other unique fact about this restaurant is
that they offer sweet pan and other flavours of pan, making it a complete round-
up of the ‘feels’ of northern India.
