Cafe Coffee Day (CCD) – The Square, Nungambakkam

Veg Momos

I went to Cafe Coffee Day (CCD) – The Square in Khadar Nawaz Khan Road, Nungambakkam couple of days back, to meet some new friends from Headstart Network and to discuss about Headstart Chennai Chapter.

Since I reached a bit early, thanks to me living less than 6 Kms from the place, while the rest had to come from the other end of the city in the evening traffic, I ordered for Veg. Momos and Mocha Square to kill time.

Veg Momos: Dry, but otherwise tasted decent. But they were most definitely overpriced at approx. Rs. 170. Heck, I could get much better momos for Rs. 55 near my home in Anna Nagar.

Mocha Square: Bleh. I thank god I didn’t take my GF over here. She would have poured the coffee on my face and broke the cup over my head. It was a grave sin committed against coffee.

Description says this: The espresso with swirls of chocolate sauce topped with steamed and foamed milk.

Reality: It was thanni (water) with some amounts of coffee podi (powder) and milk added to it, with chocolate sauce added at the bottom of the cup just for the sake of it – Took our Tamil word Kaapi Thanni (Literally translated as Coffee Water) to a whole new level ! Priced at around Rs. 170, it was a total waste of money.

Service: No complaints here, they were there when we needed, otherwise stayed out of our way.


Taste: 1/5
VFM: 1/5
Service: 4/5
Ambiance: 4/5
Quantity: 2.5/5

Overall: 2.5/5

Please don’t go here for food or coffee. It’s a good place to meet, having its own board room as well.

A stereotypical IT guy with a typical love for good food and good movies, not so typical love for books, rare love for the theatre arts and an abominable love for such lengthy sentences.

Naturally, with such varied interests, I come out with highly opinionated reviews ranging across categories and mindless blah blah blah.

I'm supposed to be living in Chennai, but I usually live in one of the social networks listed on my profile, since, hey that's so cool yo ;)
