Rasam, the Restaurant

Rasam, the dish made mainly out of Tamarind & Black pepper across South India, is mixed with rice as a second course after a sambhar or Kozhambu and before the Curd Rice.

Here the Rasam is a Kongunadu restaurant from the Sri Krishna Sweets Group at Raja Annamalai Road (Near MCtM School). Kongunadu comprises of Ooty, Coimbatore (the present headquarters of KonguNadu), Pollachi, Tiruppur, Udumalpet, Avinashi, Palladam, Kangayam (the previous headquarters of KonguNadu) to Karur, Erode, Aathur, Salem, Palani, Mettur and Dharapuram.

Its beautiful to convert these old bungalows to such places for public rather than destroying them to give way for a commercial complex. For this reason itself i’ll visit this place, if the taste is not bait.
