Gour-Meet Italy with ‘That Madras Place’ will knock your Pasta socks off

Perfect pasta paradise

We all have those days when we just want to curl up in a comfortable corner with a bowl of yummy pasta and a good book. One such day, we were invited to That Madras Place, an adorably cosy place in Adyar, for a pasta tasting session. This basically made our day, week, and pretty much our entire month.
That madras place knows exactly what you’ve been craving for and is bringing just that to the table. The pasta culture has now caught Chennai by storm and a lot of people are fine connoisseurs of pasta. This is going to be a delightful experience for you if you’re one of them and the variety that they’re looking to introduce is sure to knock your socks off.

1.Lemon Spaghetti with herby breadcrumbs


We were first served Lemon Spaghetti with bread crumbs and parmesan. This is a very unique dry pasta. All the flavours are very subtle and blended with each other very well.

2. Rigatoni in a tomato mascarpone sauce and fresh basil

The Rigatoni in a delicious tomato mascarpone that was served to us next was divine! This was very rich and creamy. This is definitely that bowl that you want in your cosy corner.

3. Walnut Basil Pesto with chicken


Going green was never this yummy. Hold your horses, we mean the pesto sauce. Walnut basil pesto with chicken cooked to perfection are what happy evenings are made of! Trust us. We’d know!

4. Aglio e olio spaghetti with a chorizo crumble


While every other type of pasta was enticing in its own way the Aglio-e-olio spaghetti with chorizo crumble was our absolute favourite. The crumble was delightfully crispy and the pasta was gorgeous.

5. Tagliatelle in a chunky tomato sauce with sun dried tomatoes


Painting your plate red, is the Tagliatelle in chunky tomato sauce. Very rich in it’s flavours, if you love tomatoes as much as I do, this will bode really well with you.


Wash it all down with some of their Mint-lemon Mojito and Oh-my-Lemon!  Don’t forget to grab a dessert jar on your way out.
