Tamil Food festival

Mumbai is a paradise for food lovers. With an amazing lineup of casual dining restaurants, fine dining, cafes, pubs and nightclubs already in place and new ones coming up frequently, niche and unique cuisines are mushrooming every day in the city! The options for international food are abundant, but there are very few places where one can go for an authentic Tamil meal. To fill this gap, Neha Kannan, wife of Renowned TV and Radio Host Siddharth Kannan has curated authentic Tamilian feast called 'Virundhu'! The feast hosted by her at WTF, Versova saw a large turnout of celebrities and authentic Tamil food lovers!

The thali meal comprised of 6 starters and 8 main course items, all of which were enjoyed with great gusto. The use of coconut, tamarind, herbs and spices typical of Tamil Nadu rendred true Tamil flavour to the dishes. The rarely seen Adai dosa, Avial a stew and Sundals -both vegetarian and prawn Sundals were some of the much items on the menu!
