Who is the most beautiful person in the world? The one who sacrifices her sleep to take care of us, the one who loves us eternally and mainly the one who makes the BEST midnight coffee. Still haven’t figured it out? MOTHERS, Of course! Even though I believe that we need to honour mothers everyday, a separate day to celebrate the contributions and sacrifices of our mothers is very special. Every year, Mother’s day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May and this year it falls on 8th May,2016.
We know that our Mum cooks better than Gordon Ramsay, Vikas Khanna and Sanjeev Kapoor but we should give her a small one day break no. What better way to celebrate Mother’s day than by taking her out to a beautiful place for a Sunday brunch? Now is the time to thank me because I found a perfect place for the occasion – THE FARM.
The Farm is a farm (not even trying to joke) which acts as a perfect get away from the hustle& bustle of the polluted city. It’s situated in the Semmancherry Village, Old Mahabalipuram Road (OMR), Chennai. ( click here for directions ). As soon as you enter this place, even the toughest heart will melt as the luscious green manicured garden and the happy spirited Cats and dogs will make you forget that you are in a restaurant. I have gone to the place thrice and every time I go to The Farm, I turn into an over enthusiastic puppy seeing it’s owner after a long time.
Their property is divided into many parts- From the bakery to the restaurant, gardens and Temple, they have many stroll-worthy locations. From the series of photos I post below, you will get a glimpse of how Farm looks like.
I know that you are already excited to take your family to this place but let’s talk about the real deal here – THE FOOD! They are supposedly famous for their wood fired Pizzas and Steaks and since I could only taste their vegetarian options, here is my view and recommendations.
1. Home style butter milk ( Rs. 150/-)
2. Banana Lassi ( Rs. 150/-)
3. Strawberry Lassi ( Rs. 200/-)
( we also ordered the cold coffee but it did not live up to our expectations)
4. Cheese garlic bread ( rs. 250/-)
5. Paneer fingers ( Rs. 250/-)
6. Aloo Tuk ( Rs. 350/-)
7. Herb Potato Wedges ( Rs. 200/-)
They are quite famous for their wood fired pizzas and we decided to think no further and order three of their best vegetarian wood fired pizzas for our main course and trust me, it was MIND BLOWING.
8. Pizza #3 – Tri colour
9. Pizza #2 – Farm special
10. Pizza #8 -Farm fresh
We were too full to order desserts on that particular day but I’ve had banoffee pie from this place and it was smacking good. They also serve North Indian dishes if you go for brunch/lunch.
So What are you waiting for? Take your mother out on 8th May to THE FARM and make her feel like the queen that she always is. Happy mother’s day to my beautiful mother and also to all the other mothers out there!
