Savour the Flavour: Head to Chennai Cafe for the Ultimate Lassi and Rice Bowl Pairing Experience

Our wide selection of Rice Bowls offers a unique opportunity to master the skill of lassi pairing. Each dish is carefully crafted to be complemented by a specific lassi that enhances its flavours. 

For example, the bold flavours of a Chicken Tikka Masala Bowl can be perfectly balanced by a mango flavoured lassi, which helps to mellow the spiciness and enhance the savoury tomato sauce. 

On the other hand, the creamy Paneer Butter Masala Bowl pairs wonderfully with a plain sugar or salt lassi that provides a refreshing acidity to cut through the dish’s richness.

Enjoy an extraordinary experience with us at Chennai Cafe. Every serving of a rice bowl celebrates Indian cuisine, with each one’s flavours accentuated by a suggested lassi pairing.
