Dindigul Thalappakatti Restaurant
The inception of this biryani joint dates back to 1957, when a man named Nagasamy Naidu’s biryani won praises and earned the name ‘Thalappakatti’ owing to the turban ‘Thalapa’ he would wear. Needless to say, the food doesn’t disappoint. High on spices and flavour, the biryani isn’t basmati-based but made of the short grained seeraga samba rice that has a taste of its own that’s synonymous to biryani from the South of India. Egg biryani, chicken 65, country chicken biryani and more, and not to forget the variety they have for vegetarians is just as impressive.
