Street food has always been an integral part of Chennai’s culture over the years. The term ’kaiyendhi bhavan’ was coined for the umpteen street food joints that served right-out-of-the-pan delicacies across Chennai. If the city is known for something the most, it has got to be the street food; get out of your home or workplace and you’ll find one right outside or in the vicinity.
OMR Food Street popularized it further by giving the city folk a hub to converge, purely for street food.
