Savour the flavours of ChennaiPosted on june 20, 2016 by Saibala Grand

The beauty of India is in its diversity. For instance, look at the diverse flavours in the cuisines of the country. A meal served in the North is completely different from the food served in the South. Hence we recommend that if you get a chance to travel through the country, indulge yourself in the local cuisine of each place. Whether you are travelling on business or leisure, local food can surely enrich your trip further.
