Wholesome eats Eating out

One Talent is a great place to drop by for a quick bite



Good food Square One Talent offers food that is value for money

A joint on the Pattom main road, Square One Talent, near LIC, is a great place to drop by for a quick bite. From chakka ada to achapams, it’s a variety of ethnic eats at this joint. My favourites were the meat cutlet (Rs. 20) and thurki pathiri (Rs.20). While the cutlet had more of meat and less of potatoes, the thurki pathiri had a filling of lightly spiced minced chicken, egg and nuts. The green gram stuffed sukhiyan also finds its way in the counter.

However, for those who do not fancy traditional eats comes bites such as egg puffs, chicken spring rolls and fried wontons.

For the sweet tooth

The joint has a variety of cakes for those with a sweet tooth. If you are a chocoholic do try out their Chocolate cake iced which is sinfully rich.

Their pineapple upside down cake and mocha cake are highly recommended too. Those suffering from diabetes can dig into wheat ada.

For those who want to relax and enjoy their snack, the outlet has a couple of tables. Sit and enjoy a large glass of fresh juice as you dig into a hot from the waffle maker, waffles with maple syrup. A coffee machine dispenses hot coffee and cappuccino. Children will enjoy the homemade crisp ice cream cones topped with their favourite scoop of ice cream (Rs. 45).

Ethnic homemade snacks such as avalose podi, diamond cuts (Rs. 28), Kumbalapam (Rs. 30) and boli are available in take-away packets while varieties of pickles such as tuna, gooseberry-lime-garlic and mango-ginger pickle are neatly displayed on shelves.

The joint also offers packed lunches with the menu changing daily. ‘Nadan’ dishes such as parotta and chicken curry, kappa and meen curry and even rice and side dishes are served in neatly packed disposable packages. Those who want a quick bite can choose from a variety of sandwiches. Try their club sandwich (Rs. 55). With egg, minced chicken, lettuce, tomatoes and cheese, it’s a meal in itself.

Serving wholesome homemade eats, although the prices at Square One Talent may strike you as slightly expensive, the food is value for money.
