Milky Way - All the way!

-A candid review of Milky way- Chennai by Grubhogs Team Member; Veknash P


‘5000 students holed up in one place -‘school’..........
A heavy pocket and an ever growling belly’......
Perfect market for any coffee shop, bakery, snack giant.

And the latest snack giant to take swoop in is "Milky way". It recently opened a branch on Aligari Sami Salai, right next to Padma Sheshadri Bala Bhavan School in K.K. Nagar.

And since the doors opened you would be hard pressed to find a a single empty table between 3:00 to 5:00pm , so much so that the eatery has spilled on to the pavement with a hastily set up seating area!


Milky way is brightly lit, stylishly decorated and reasonably well priced all in an effort to cater to its target group: Teenagers. A shiny digital board screams out the "Specials of the day" somewhat increasing the novelty quotient of this place.


The place remains a teenage hangout but its patron however are not just teenagers. It even draws families and some times elderly folk who stop by for a bite after their evening walk.

Milky way also retains its appeal by having a mixed menu. Its menu card features softy cones and sundaes ranging in large number of flavors. And to mix it up also on the menu are a range of short eats and snacks. Try their simple Cheese sandwich (Rs 20), Cheesy veg double decker( Rs 70). French Fries or Sweet corn nuggets.


Just when some perpetual critics where starting to say that the charm is rubbing off and that they need something new- Voila! Milky way announces its Chat counter ( on which I cannot comment yet because it is yet to open).


Milky way has taken a lion's share of the student market on Alagiri Sami Salai, leaving the nearby coffee shop, four bakeries and two chat counters wondering how to get back in the game.
On Cricket match days, this place is an uncontrollable jungle of customers and cricket enthusiasts huddling around the television near the counter. Some students often buy a softy or a sandwich just to be able to stand in there and watch the match.

Kids love this place too in part to their promotion; “Eat for more than 150 and get an assured gift free.” These gifts range from Ben 10 files to Hannah Montana pouches, Winnie the Pooh pencils and blow Sketches. Which kid wouldn’t love this place.

So far this place is a clear winner!
