Heavy On Heart, Light On Wallet

Salwa Cafe yenthaSituated near the Women's College at Vazhuthacaud, Salwa Cafe is primarily a take-out counter. There is a buzz of activity surrounding the shop as the waiters shout around the orders and pack away food for the waiting customers  at speeds that are humanly impossible. The place could hardly seat 10 people, a result we experimentally obtained. We made an order for 'chicken tikka masala' and 'rumali roti'. The lack of space forced us to share seats; the wait for the food was tense due to the acts of balancing we had to perform to remain seated. The wait was well worth it; the 'rotis' were as soft as they come and the 'chicken tikka masala' fiery. A plate of 'chicken tikka masala' worth Rs.80 turned out to be more than sufficient for two.

'Salwa Cafe' serves a wide variety of chicken preparations including chicken chilly, chicken chettinadu, butter chicken and grilled chicken. Beef is served fried, roasted and prepared as chilli and curry. To go with the curries there are idiyappams, porottas, chapattis and a variety of rotis.

Half an hour later ten people left 'Salwa Cafe' feeling much heavier and wallets not much lighter; we had eaten to our hearts' and stomachs' content, all for 600 bucks.
