While we climbed up Ucchi Pillaiyar on Friday and settled on the rocks after Darshan, (that was an issue though, I kept slipping down) Pradeep told us about Michael's ice cream. So I went hunting for that too. Our driver knew where it was and when I asked him what's so special about Michael's Ice cream, it was the price first. Sold at 2/- bucks. And they said it tastes good as well. It has been there ever since the time of the British according to the driver.
Off we went hunting and actually saw that Vanilla was sold for 2/-, Chocolate for 3/-.
The experience of having a rendu roobai icecream is quite fantastic. If you go looking for Michael's don't expect a waltz on your taste buds or anything.
There is a small coffee shop near the Ranganatha Swamy Temple in Srirangam. Its open from 4:30 AM to 8:30 AM in the morning and then opens again from 3:00 to 5:30 in the evening. And this guy sells only coffee. Nothing else. So I tried that as well and kinda liked it. Heard that people there are addicted to that coffee.
Did not really get to sample food on these lines. Maybe some other time..
So if you are in Trichy next, do check these places out and let me know. I don't know the exact location of Michael's Ice Cream but anyone and everyone knows how to get there.
