Love the idea of spicy vegetable bhaji topped with dollops of butter, raw onion with a side of buttery pav? Then we suggest, you should just get going to Amar Fast Food & Restaurant in GN Chetty Road, T Nagar. The popular Mumbai-based chain recently opened its first outlet in the city and the place has been receiving rave reviews from foodies in town.

Amar Fast Food & Restaurant is an institution in itself that has earned fame by just peddling pav bhaji initially in Mumbai. Garlic and ginger are distinct in their recipe and they don’t overdo the butter or spices in the bhaji. Its thick texture and toffee- brown colour is a definite thumbs-up. Amar Fast Food & Restaurant has about 10 varieties of pav bhaji at its restaurant outlet in Chennai including a Cheese Masala Pav Bhaji and Paneer Fry Pao Bhaji.

The vegetarian restaurant also serves delicious tawa pulao varieties, bhel, chaat, sandwiches and pizza. They also have idli, dosa and uttapam varieties. If you are looking for unique items, check out their Tawa Idly, Palak Masala Dosa, Dahi Batata Puri and Sabudana Wada.

The outlet also serves North Indian curries, dal, roti, naan, paratha and kulcha options. You can expect everything from Aloo Jeera, Vegetarian Jalfrezi, Kashmiri Dum Aloo to Malai Kofta, Methi Mutter Malai and Punjabi Kadi. Do not miss out on their onion kulcha and lachcha paratha. They also have a pretty exhaustive Chinese food menu but we haven’t exactly tried that out.

 If you feel like washing down the food with some beverages, then try out their refreshing juices and shakes.
