      Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena  Месяц назад +1

      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. Nearly everyone was buying one and sharing it as it was so large. Hope you enjoyed the video and our other India content. Cheers, Sheena

    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!

And do you have access to authentic Indian food close by? Hope you enjoy the rest of our India series! Cheers, Sheena 😄

    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  4 месяца назад

      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

  • star marzuq

    • Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena
      Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena  4 месяца назад

      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

    A lassi cost ₹140? Are you really serious?

    • Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena
      Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena  4 месяца назад

      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

    • Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena
      Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena  4 месяца назад

      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. It was super refreshing and delicious! We loved the Sowcarpet area- it was such an exciting place to explore. Thanks for watching and commenting on this one. Cheers, Sheena

      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.

      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  5 месяцев назад

      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

      Hi abhineet gupta, the lassi was that price as it was about 3 times the size of a normal Rs 50 street lassi. It was about 800mls worth and it was also kesar flavoured which always makes it a little pricier. It was super tasty! Thanks for watching, hope you enjoyed the video. 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

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

    3- You people are amazing, and so is your channel. Hence on youtube, people should keep exploring things until they find amazing channels. I just subscribed to one such channel 💓

      Hi Thilak T. The prices we payed were all the listed prices and exactly the same as the locals were paying. The lassi was a bit more expensive than most street stalls but it was about 3 times the size of most lassi on the street and was saffron. All the locals at the places we ate were paying the same amounts and they were more than happy to pay the for what they were getting. No guide needed and we prefer it that way. Thanks for watching this one and we hope you enjoy the rest of our Indian videos. Cheers, Thomas 😀

    Wow.. mouth watering as I watched.. though I grew up in Chennai and now in California we are missing a lot of these here.. no traditional flavors in restaurants out here...especially chettinad meals.. you guys rock.. keep up the good work... now I will watch all your videos.. subscribed..

    • Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena
      Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena  6 месяцев назад

      Hi Vishnuchander V, thanks so much for those suggestions! We were gutted we didn't get a chance to visit Madurai and since we started posting our Chennai videos lots of people have mentioned Trichy so we will have to make sure when we return to India we visit there too. I can totally understand how you might miss the authentic flavours from India. From our few months of travel and what small amount we have learned about the food culture and diversity in flavours- when I think about the menus of some of the Indian restaurants in New Zealand and Australia (where we used to live) it's almost laughable how one-dimensional they are. But it just means we have to visit more often I suppose! I bet you do a lot of home cooking too! Thanks again for your support Vishnuchander V and we hope you continue to enjoy our content! Cheers, Sheena

      Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena hey guys.. good to see a quick response..indeed there are more indian restaurants here in California however they are missing authentic taste and flavors as we get in our home country..Iam a big fan of Trevor James food ranger and now Iam watching your videos...we all like the way you both admire and taste the food...keep up the good work.. try more cities in southern tamilnadu like Madurai, trichy... also you can try asife biriyani and thalapakatti if you are still around in Chennai... Iam sure you will like it...

      Hi T2F Music Studio! The food in India is just so diverse isn't it! I think in a number of life times you'd not be able to tick it all off! 😀 We were in Kerala about 6 years ago (long before we started RUclip) and loved it there so much. We'd love to return now that we're making videos and some off some of the incredible food. Thanks so much for watching this one and we hope you enjoy the rest of out Indian content! Cheer, Thomas 😀😀

    Wow , it looks amazing to see you people tasting our food, that lasi seems to be over priced for me, other than that its a treat to watch

      Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena  6 месяцев назад

      Hi Dinesh Kumar M! We had the most amazing time filming these videos and we're so happy we can show this incredible food off to people. The food in India is so good! The lassi was rather expensive but it was absolutely huge. I'd say about 3 times the size of a normal street lassi. Also it was saffron so that puts the price up a bit. The stall was super busy and most people were having one lassi between 2 or 3 people. We shared that one and it was more than enough. We hope you enjoy the rest of the content we have on the channel from India and coming up! Cheers, Thomas 😀
