‘Grub’ amongst many things, literally means ‘food‘ or to ‘supply with food‘. This nifty little outlet at St John Baptish Road which leads to the Mount Mary Church is very popular with our office folks. And why not? Low on price, high on quantity and insane on the oil quantity in the food (no seriously!), this place attracts many! Looking for a quick bite? Wanting a heavy meal? Need to mix and match Chinese with Mughlai without burning a hole in your pocket? Come to Grub Corner! (Now that did sound like a PR person talking!, I should be getting paid for this now!)
Grub corner serves a lot more than its size portrays otherwise. It’s the current favourite of a friend who was bored with Chinese at Jim-me’s Kitchen and the croissants at Cheron Caterers. Grub does offer a bit of both with dishes like Chicken Fried Rice and Chicken Noodles Fried or Chicken Schzewan Fried Rice. If that is not enough then one can gorge on chicken lollipops, Chicken Liver (my favourite), Mutton Cutlets and Mutton Balls (another favourite). In just under INR 100 pretty much anyone can satisfy their hunger and that I think is their USP. While the food quality may not comparable to places which charge double or triple the rates, it is still justifiable for its price and is not a bad choice either!
Most of the rice items can be had for under INR 70 while the starters like Lollipops and mutton cutlets are for INR 20 or less!
Will update later with more info on the prices and a few pics as well!
Read about this new eatery opened near St. Andrew’s Church in the newspaper Midday. Its just a week-old or maybe a bit older and is run by a family that lives behind Mikneil. They are similar to Kalpana which is on Chappel Road.
Mikneil is a essentially a takeaway. As you can see from the photo above it is quite tiny eatery. And the big dood standing on the left, though inadvertently clicked in the picture, makes for a nice comparison on the size aspect. As the photo above suggests there isn’t much seating space on the outside and on the inside there are two stools which cannot seat us big guys! What occupies the space inside are piles of boxes, a fridge and the storage shelf (for lack of a better word!) where the ready made food items are kept!
Mikneil keeps similar food items to that of Kalpana including pan rolls, chops, cutlets, rotis. However, the differentiating factor here is the Goan Cuisine Vindaloo! Yes they keep vindaloo too! Not sure about the pricing but I am definitely trying this out soon! While there, I laid my hands on a chicken sandwich and a beef pan roll. The food was not spicy like the ones at Kalpana or even Cheron Caterers nor was it overtly oily! I liked both the items and wished I had taken a few more from there! Nonetheless it was a good appetizer before the final dinner at Candies!! (and here I was trying to loose weight!)
I am most definitely eat here more often!
