Tradition romps home at Chennai's Grand Sweets and Snacks outlet in Adyar. Everyone and their aunty meet at Grand Sweets. The huge dinner plate sized Murukkus that are indeed hand-made, or the discs of sweet and sticky jaggery flavoured Athirasam are a must in most wedding hampers. They nestle in the hand-luggage (not any more perhaps) of returning NRIs secure in the knowledge that grand-mom still knows a thing or two about making those sweets and snacks that linger in the mouth and crevices of the teeth and memory for days to come. Somewhere the little old man, who believed in creating a kingdom of sweets to be enjoyed by all, must feel pleased

Just visited this place to purchase some south Indian chips chaklis to take back home and chanced upon a dish we call appam (Appe in marathi). The lady prepares them infront of your eyes and its a delicacy to watch it being prepared. Added with some sambar chutney and its a good dish to go out with. I did not try the in house restaurant but should be good looking at satisfied faces. The other thing that happened to me was the attitude with which I was explained the difference between Banana Chips from Kerala and Tamilnadu. His temper was about to flare up when I asked him the yellow ones. After tasting what he offered me it was neatly justified....Obviously Malyali and Tamil are 2 different preparations and one from out of town can get confused with the two of them. Anyways the service at the counter was great ....
