On the Chennai food trail: Anmol Lassiwalla: The owner is a former wrestler and looks the part. “Muh kadwa hai par dil achcha hai,” he says about himself while doling out large steel glasses of kesar lassi and chaas.

On the Chennai food trail: Sowcarpet - Agarwal Bhawan: The hallowed Agarwal Bhawan is next on the list. It’s a good thing it takes about 20 minutes to reach the place. (30-minutes, if you stop for this murukku sandwich on the way.)
