After seeing lots of raves from bbulkow and others about this new Chettinad restaurant in Santa Clara, we finally tried it. Everything was good. We had two of the weekend specials. The Nethili Meen Fry (Indian fried anchovies) made a great start, and the Ennai Kathirikai eggplant special was our favorite dish of the bunch. We also had the Aappam with Goat Curry from the regular menu. The aappam was very interesting and tasty; the goat curry was fine and made a nice complement.
All of these dishes were new to me. I'll have to get back another weekend where they have the goat paya available, but there are still lots of new things to try here. This was my first time at a Chettinad restaurant; it's great to discover these new tastes!
