I never cease to be amazed by the wonders of India. There’s a new adventure at every turn in this country and lots of amazingly kind locals who are willing to take time out of their day to guide you through them. It’s truly a special place and it’s one of the reasons why I love it so much. My buddy Sam from Samuel & Audrey joined me for an epic, 18-day tour of the country in November of 2018. He’s the perfect person to go on adventures like this with!

Our second day in Chennai continued with some epic southern Indian seafood and a visit to Madras Lighthouse. It was my first time having seafood in India and I could not wait! Come and join me, Sam, and our friend Deepak as we continue exploring Chennai!

Our food adventure began at a famous food stall on Marina Beach called Sundari Akka Kadai. Everything served here is super fresh and was caught by the local fishermen that morning.

The first thing we ordered was fish fry, prawn gravy, rice, eggplant, and boiled eggs. There was no seating left, so I ate standing up on the beach!

The fish was bathed in a buttery curry that wasn’t too spicy at first, but it snuck up on me later. The prawns were fantastic with the curry and were the star of the show, and the fish was super meaty. Just be careful of the bones – there were a lot of them! This was one of the best seafood meals I’ve had anywhere in the world!

After cleaning my hands, I got some vancharam fry (a fried fish) and mutton (my rice fell to the ground). The mutton had a nice curry on it and was super tender and fatty. I liked it even better than the prawns! The vancharam fry had lots of spices on it and was perfectly cooked and extremely salty. Even the dogs love it!

Next up was some fried squid with curries and onion at the stall next door. It was heavenly! So rich in flavor with a nice crunch. Not only was it my favorite dish of the day, it was my favorite squid dish of all-time!

Our next stop was a fruit stand so we could cool down with some fresh watermelon for Sam and papaya for me. We followed that up with coconut water from a freshly cut coconut. It was so refreshing and exactly what I needed to refuel and rehydrate on this blistering 95-degree day in Chennai! Then the guy cut open the coconut so we could eat the meat inside. It was spongy and so delicious!

Our final stop was Chennai Lighthouse, also known as Madras Lighthouse, which was built in 1977 and is 46 meters tall. We rode the elevator to the lookout point at the top and got some stunning views of the city, including Marina Beach, the ocean, the cricket stadium, the fishermen housing I first saw the day before, and much more. You have to come here whenever you visit Chennai!

I hope you enjoyed our southern Indian seafood excursion and our Madras Lighthouse visit! If you did, please give this video a thumbs up and leave me a comment below. And please subscribe to my channel so you don’t miss out on any of my upcoming food and travel content!
