Food Trail in Chennai | Culinary Tours, Cooking Classes in India

Rattan Bazaar Road, George Town, Chennai, Tamil Nadu 600003, India

Adult: €20,00


Take a walk through Sowcarpet – with your appetites leading the way! Taste street food and get street smart about communities that have contributed to Chennai’s culinary scene. And as you go, chew upon a bit of history and nibble on some stories. This is one tongue-tickling trail that will leave you stuffed.


Pav bhaji, pal kova, thattu idli and murukku sandwich – words that can make any foodie drool. How would you like these served with a fistful of spicy stories? Stories of people and their passion for food, of food fetishes that are as laughable as thought provoking, and of recipes that are jealously guarded secrets.

The streets of Sowcarpet team with shops selling food – from the exotic to the everyday. Let us take you on a walk that gets you to sample the best of this and the best of that. And that is just for starters. We’ll show you how a morsel of food could hide a million pointers to the way of life of a people. Join us as we delve into profoundly philosophical questions – how did our food turn so spicy, or why are we so sweet obsessed?

The food trail through the busy streets of Sowcarpet is guaranteed to be an assault on your senses. So come, if you are a complete foodie, obsessively adventurous and very, very hungry.

You can arrange a private tour (up to 3 p) for 6000 INR (85 EUR). Contact us to book it.
