This modest but comfortably air conditioned eatery at Alagar Road, Thallakulam, Madurai is an ultimate destination for those who wanted to have a taste of traditional and authentic food of Southern Tamil Nadu. Enter, and you are in for a grand treat of varieties that are mind boggling. Have you heard of crab omelets? Yummy!! Their fish and chicken gravies are superb. The secret of taste variants in each item is revealed confidentially by the owner Senthil. He explained that method of cooking is like grammar. You are not supposed to deviate.Traditional preparation specifically prescribes which oil to use for what. I was told that for each dish, even pre heating of the respective oil differs. No wonder the taste in Amma Mess is unique and retains the regular visitors. A 'must visit' eating place in Madurai.
