    Random question, if you fold your bamboo plate away from you, does it mean you didn't like the meal?

    • SuzyGrowsMyBiz
      SuzyGrowsMyBiz 2 months ago +1

      +Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena thx for replying, I thought with your specification about how to fold bamboo plate that might be the case.

    Usually one doesn’t eat the curry leaves, you leave it in the plate as it’s mostly for aroma.

    Coming down to to my hometown from Sydney next week guys! Sowcarpet is on my list of revisit/ rediscover places!

    • Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena
      Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena  4 months ago

      Hi NG2k15, I bet your list of things to eat is a mile long!! Totally understand why you had to start eating chicken to survive in Aus 😂😂😂 We didn't get a chance to do any night time filming and were so gutted about it! We just ran out of time but it gives us a great excuse to return 😍 Bon voyage and enjoy every second of your time home!! Cheers, Sheena

    • NG2k15
      NG2k15 4 months ago +1

      +Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena Definitely excited! 3 weeks of leave and coming back only after Christmas Day. Sowcarpet is a mini Rajasthan and adds to Chennai's overall vibrancy in amazing food choices. I cannot wait to jump back into loading up on delicious vegetarian food, had to convert myself into a Chicken eater to survive in Aus lol.
      You seem to have missed the night food scene a bit...not sure if you have covered them somewhere, sorry if you have. But Chennai has these night time shops that open up after 5 or 6 and go on till 1am or 2am. They serve indo-chinese and usual south indian cuisine but its just cooked right in front of u and adds to the experience. Indo-chinese food is something special!

      Hi NG2k15! That is so neat! We really, really enjoyed our time filming in Chennai. You must be very excited to be heading home? Sowcarpet is such a great place for food hunting isn't it. We hope you enjoy the rest of our videos from Chennai also! Have a brilliant trip. Cheers, Thomas 😀

      Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena  5 months ago

      Hi Venkat Sm, thanks for watching and commenting. We loved the food scene in Chennai so much! We were paying as much as the locals as most prices were on signboards. We were eating at stalls which use filtered or mineral water for their chaat so perhaps that’s why the prices are a bit higher. It was worth it- the food was great! Hope you enjoy our other Chennai videos! Cheers, Sheena

      Hi Mayureshh gore, thanks for watching! Nah we paid the same price as all the locals- the lassi was about 3 times the size of a regular 50 rupee lassi and it being saffron makes it a bit more expensive.

    I've watched way too many people from outside India do shows, where they seem to have very little idea about what's on their plate. Yours, refreshingly, isn't from that mould. Enjoyed the video. You've made me homesick now!

      Hi Gowtham Muthukkumaran Thirunavukkarasu, thanks so much for watching and for your kind words. We had a brilliant time food hunting in India and our appreciation of the cuisine has grown ten thousand fold. We can't wait to return to eat and film more. Whereabouts do you live now? And do you have access to authentic Indian food close by? Hope you enjoy the rest of our India series! Cheers, Sheena 😄

      Hi Suman Sahu, no toilets were destroyed throughout our 6 week stay in India! We make sure to eat and film at popular and hygienic eateries whenever we travel and we didn't have a problem with the food we are in India. We loved this area in Chennai- it was really buzzy!

    You can buy more street food under $1 in Chennai except chicken Biryani. But you guys are really cheated I think . And the kachori you eat in the same sowcarpet is ₹15 . Lassi is ₹25 , podi oothappam is ok but for me it's lil expensive . Aloo tikki ₹100 is really funny

    • Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena
      Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena  10 months ago

      We weren't cheated star marzuq, all the prices we paid were the ones listed on the signboards. The prices were just what all the locals were paying. They were all delicious versions and very popular! That podi oothappam was amazing. Cheers, Sheena

      Yep star marzuq, this eatery uses mineral water for all their chaat so we found their price comparable with other eateries i who did the same like in Mumbai. Thanks for watching! Cheers, Sheena

      Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena  10 months ago

      Yep star marzuq, it's about three times the size of a normal Rs 50 lassi and most people were sharing it. Saffron also pushes up the price which is to be expected. Cheers, Sheena

      Hi SaRaH Kruch, ghee or clarified butter is used :) It makes the food taste so rich and buttery. The uttapam was one of Thomas's favourite things we ate during our 6 weeks in India! Thanks for watching and commenting on this one SaRaH Kruch. Cheers, Sheena

      Hi Yasar Arafath A, the lassi was about 3 times the size of a normal Rs 50 one and most people were sharing. It was also kesar so I suppose that always drives the price up a bit.

      Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena Hey Guys, Sheena, that’s nice! You should experience so many other authentic foods in Chennai on your next visit! Organic foods should be next one, one is close to or near Elliott’s Beach where you had Murugan Idly. I guess it’s “Graama Bojanam”. I tried when I visited India last and a healthy experience it was. They make foods from Millets; ancient food base, which releases Glucose as slow-release as compared to other food grains. Will delight your tasting experience. accent sounds Australian??? Where abouts u both from? You guys are sure to bring evens to the Canadian guy who does street foods. But your expressions are as authentic as can be.. India, a total sensory experience.. Well done fellas.. Cheerios

    They are not taking south Indian food. These are North Indians food items. The names are also in hindi. These gullible are being cheated.

    • TravelerPat
      TravelerPat 6 months ago

      Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena Umm... I think you guys got it wrong on this one to be honest. If not all foods in the video are South Indian, the video really should have been titled Chennai street food tour like the person commenting pointed out. Imagine if it were between New Zealand and Australian foods you wouldn't want people to get them mixed up either, would you? If a negative comment holds true despite quite a harsh tone like in this case, it probably should still be addressed accordingly, better yet with an apology and positive affirmation to create good will. You guys did sound a little defensive in this case. (For very nasty comments with no valid points, not responding at all will probably work best. I know it's easy for me to say but just something to think about.)

    • Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena
      Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena  11 months ago

      Yep that title could have worked but we chose the title we did because it appeals to a much wider audience and means that hopefully more people get to see this video meaning they get to see the amazing food Chennai has to offer. - Thomas

Just because some of the food we showed in this video is North Indian in origin doesn't make them any less a part of Chennai's street food culture.

We have some other Chennai videos on our channel and another coming up if you want to check those out. Thanks for watching. Cheers, Sheena

      Thanks so much for subscribing Kit Kat 😄 We had no upset tummies at all during our 6 weeks in India- we were careful about eating at popular stalls and sticking to eateries and stalls who use filtered water or mineral water in their uncooked food (like lassi and chaat like pani puri etc). Hygiene can be an issue though- when we were in India 6 years ago Thomas got sick a couple of times pretty bad- although both times it was from eating at restaurants- it can strike anywhere 😆 Cheers, Sheena

      Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena Thanks for reply. sorry for mistake kindly read as "I want to know more about Chennai" instead of "I know more about Chennai" last video you tell more details about mylapore shops and snacks. I never know about these quality street foods. your video tells more about chennai. I am so happy about your chennai visits.

      Us! We aim to show the BEST food a city has to offer in all of our videos Vignesh K V. Just because some of the food we showed in this video is North Indian in origin doesn't make them any less a part of Chennai's street food culture. Indeed we were recommended by many Chennai subscribers to visit these places in Sowcarpet as they are so beloved by locals. Hope you like the other Chennai videos we have coming up. Cheers, Sheena

    Lasi ....allu. Tikki you guys maybe in north India not in south and i think they charged you guys too much specially for lasi

    • Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena
      Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena  Year ago

      Hi Abhishek Benjwal, yes we showed some North Indian snacks in this one as Sowcarpet is a really popular street food area in Chennai. Many of our Chennai subscribers told us to visit as it's a very beloved street food area in Chennai. We weren't overcharged for any of the foods we ate. They were all listed prices. The lassi may seem expensive but it was three times the size of a normal Rs. 50 street lassi and it was saffron flavoured which adds to the price. Most people were buying one and sharing it between two people. Thanks for watching and we hope you like what we have coming up in the video! Cheers, Sheena

    when you go to any province you should focus only on its traditional food. Onion Kachori, Saffron lassi and Potato Tikki are not South Indian food.

    • Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena
      Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena  Year ago

      Hi Amar Nirvikar, just because some of the food we showed in this video is North Indian in origin doesn't make them any less a part of Chennai's street food culture. Indeed we were recommended by many Chennai subscribers to visit these places in Sowcarpet as they are so beloved by locals. We aim to show the BEST food a city has to offer in all of our videos and discriminating against a food's origin is completely counter-productive. We made 4 Chennai videos so we hope you enjoy the one already uploaded and those still to come. Cheers, Sheena
