Driving down ECR is always such an adventure because you never know where you’re going to end up once you set out on the road. But the best adventure, while you’re on the ECR, is the fact that you get to try new kinds of food. Chennai, in general, is a city that is booming with brand new restaurants every single week, and the ECR is definitely a great place to open a new restaurant and actually enjoy yourself with your friends. The benefit of having these restaurants there is to be able to stop somewhere on the way to take a break and eat some really good food on your way to wherever it is that you’re going.
In case you’re planning a weekend escape tomorrow, here are some of the places where you can stop on the way and enjoy a delicious meal and stuff yourself with lots of deliciousness.
