For most places old buildings in which they function in is a drawback, but here is a place which shows how to maintain it properly to make the same into a heritage building status. Hotel Guruprasad opposite Dhanya Supermarket, on Main Road, Chinnakkada, got famous for their breakfast dishes like idli, upmaavu, masala dosa etc. This vegetarian restaurant is open from 7 am to 9 pm everyday except during Deepavali when they close down for two weeks and its best to visit this place during breakfast hours.
While you pass through the busy Main Road, Chinnakkada, amongst all the crowded shops, shopping malls and street vendors, you can see an old but well maintained two story building that looks quite out of place with that calm composure of a grandfather who has seen it all, among all the other comparatively new buildings in the street.
Hotel Guruprasad functions in the ground floor of this antique building for over 50 years, got famous not just for the aesthetics of the building in which it functions, but also for its tasty breakfast dishes. The main customers who visit this place are the employees who work in the nearby buildings, along with people who come to Main road for shopping.
So its already established that they have an authentic retro looking ambience but they sure won’t let you down when it comes to their dishes too. Comparatively thin and soft idali served with their special coconut chutney and sambar has nothing much fancy about it but is a much demanded dish from this place. Upmaavu made without too much oil or ghee is prepared at its best and served with Coconut chutney and sambar, without tampering with the natural taste of the dish.
Hot and soft poories served as a set of 3, is small in size but the taste of the dish with superb potato masala and coconut chutney is just awesome nevertheless. This restaurant with its high ceilings, spacious dining area, good ventilation and the good old fashioned wooden chairs and tables makes for a perfect dining experience. Décor of the restaurant is more like that of a temple than a restaurant with every available space covered with pictures of Hindu gods and goddesses.
In a place where buildings cram together and there is not even place for parking this building has a compound wall with those old fashioned iron grills and a proper entrance that opens to the street. This place has something unique about it which makes one wanting to go in, atleast for a cup of tea.
