For the real flavour

The signboard, ‘Junior Kuppana’, is sure to arouse curiosity in just about anybody. Those hungry and looking for a place to eat wouldn’t think twice before hopping in just to see what the place has to offer. And one is sure to return feeling full and content with what one has eaten.

‘Junior Kuppana’ was started in the City a while back after a very successful trial in Chennai. This family establishment has been in the food business for as long as they can remember. The eatery dishes out the authentic taste of Tamil Nadu. It is popular for its chicken biryani, natti chicken gravy, chicken liver masala in the chicken dishes. In seafood, the must-try dishes include Vanjiram Fish Curry, ‘Chilly Fish’, Fish Chukka and in mutton, the mutton pallipalayam, ‘mutton liver fry’, mutton nalli fry, botti fry and ‘brain fry’ move faster than any other dishes. 

Talking more about some of these exclusive dishes, Rajamanickam, the owner of the restaurant informs, “These dishes may be available in one form or the other here, but I am pretty sure the real taste is not there. We not only source the meat and fish from Erode in Chennai, even the ingredients and masalas are brought by road from our warehouse in Chennai. The meat brought is fresh and nothing is stored and used beyond a certain time.”     

The eatery is packed at lunch and dinner time, thanks to the many IT companies in the vicinity in addition to families who have almost become regulars at this joint. In addition to the food, it’s the ambience and warmth that brings people back. Rajamanickam shares that all the dishes are cooked in authentic style. “The meat is cooked till it is soft and mixed well with the masala, which has the right amount of all the ingredients. The food is not too spicy and it is changed according to people’s requirement,” he states.  

The thali at lunch is another fast-moving. It is not only reasonably price but offers great variety in non-vegetarian and vegetarian dishes. “The kootu is changed everyday just to break the monotony and we always offer a different sweet dish as well. The kothu parotta is a popular choice with most curries. The parotta made is such a way that it doesn’t get dry and hard even if it kept for a long time,” pitches in Kuppana Chandru, who also manages the restaurant with Rajamanickam. 

The owners don’t compromise on quality and hygiene. “Since meat is our main dish, we ensure that the place is cleaned frequently and kept free of dust and dirt. Also, nothing is carried over for the next day including the oil. The food is cooked fresh only when an order is placed ,” explains Rajamanickam. 

The eatery is located at 5th Cross Road, KHB Block Koramangala and is open between 11 am and 3.45 pm and 7 pm and 10.30 pm. For details, call 41487072.
