Enroute from Pondicherry to Chennai, just when the stomach growls for some good lunch, one comes across a promisingly busy restaurant with an impressivename. Guru restaurant boldly promises good meals, and in we go for our quick sapad.

As is typical of such highway eateries, service is quick. No sooner have we ordered, in comes the banana leaf. Since we have ordered crab soup that arrives first. The soup is delicious with fresh baby crabs and a strong hit of pepper. 

As soon as we finish, the non-veg meal (Rs 125) five bowls with fish curry, chicken curry, prawns curry, mutton curry and a golden coloured rava pongal arrives, along with two veggies and of course rice along with it.


The extras we have ordered also follow – roast nalli (Rs 180) has meaty marrow that easily comes out, a perfectly cooked mutton liver fry (Rs 160) and a red fierce tasting Kingfish (Rs 190), along with sambhar and rasam. 


Within fifteen minutes this delicious meal is polished off. Now this is how all fast food should be!
