In addition to its quirky architecture, Chettinad is renowned across India for its distinctive cuisine, which draws on influences from the many and diverse countries its wealthy emigrant traders travelled to during the colonial era. Expect mildly spiced, coconut-based gravies with a salty tang derived from the slightly saline well water. Sundried vegetables also feature prominently. An odd number of dishes are always served, usually on waxy green banana leaves.
