IAM so thrilled to experience Red FM’s #SouthSideStory which is a festival that brings south Indian music, cuisine and culture to other parts of India.
Lunch event with a meet and greet with RJ Mantra & RJ Akriti from Red FM and enjoyed delicious south Indian cuisine at South High, Lower Parel
Those who haven’t visited South India & tasted it, this is the place you should come & taste the dishes.
During South Indian festivals this restaurant serves its speciality dishes too apart from normal dishes.
I visited this restaurant 10 times before also but today i got a family feeling coz we all were eating lunch together which is a South Indian tradition too.
Coming to dishes let see wat all we tasted.Have a look below :
VEG THALI : Thali here means “Banana Leaves”.It consisted of idli pieces,medu vada,chilli bhajji,coconut chutney,puri,lachcha paratha,uttappa dosa,paneer curry,rasam,papad,brown boiled rice,pickles,buttermilk chaas.
I ordered “Mulugatwamy Soup” which is my favourite soup in that restaurant.Ibjust loved it.
Coming to drinks there was “Minty Jaljeera Ice”,”Imli Soda”,”Anarasa”,”Virgin Mojito Flavoured”,”Cucumber & Coriander Sour”,”Mampalum Kari Martini”.
Minty Jaljeera Ice : This drink made using mint leaves/pudina,jaljerra masala with dash of ice.
Imli Soda : This drink made using imli or tamarind pulp mixed with soda.
Anarasa : Anar means pomegranate & ras means juice.Juice made using pomegranate.
Virgin Mojito Flavoured : Its a type of mocktail.

There was 2 types of pongal rice : “Sweet Pongal” & “Kara Pongal”.

Kara Pongal : Kara means spicy.Rice mixed with spices.
In between these all we were clicking pics of the dishes.I liked the wordings written in all 4 South Indian languages.There was “Kathakali face” placed on the wall too.This was giving a teaditional look of South India as if we were there itself for lunch in any one of the states/district.
Luckily i got to meet d students of Bombay Dyeing for which i judged their cooking competition years ago.Happy to see them all once again.
Finally I did more than 100 tiktok videos , and we ordered sweet paan to eat.Just loved the taste of beetle leaf.It helps to digest food.
Overall nice ambience,food,taste,infrastructure, serving etc.
