The Mylapore Food Walk, held as part of the Madras Day celebrations, drew a goodly crowd despite ominous predictions of rain.
Led by the ever-enthusiastic Sridhar Venkataraman who held three other Food Walks this August, the foodies assembled at the top end of North Mada Street and explored a few food joints which offer some of the best snacks in this part of the city.
One such place was Senthil’s Soft Zone on Kutchery Road which has expanded because its snacks and drinks have been a big hit with foodies.
