With Nanking in Royapettah offering  Chinese all night long, we take a look at the options when hunger strikes out of time Our options for that midnight snack seem to be evolving. What started with staples like biryani and fried rice, evolved to include a whole variety of sandwiches and rolls before speciality menus (in the case of Crimson Chakra @ Night) with desserts became available. The newest wee hour saviour, is Nanking in Royapettah, that offers Indian Chinese favourites all night long. “Biryanis are available in plenty all through the night. I needed to do something different to survive and this area did not have good Chinese delivery in the night,” says S Asirvatham, a hotel management graduate who recently took over Nanking, after the restaurant was closed down. chilli  fried-rice_005Chocolate-Molten-Lava-Cake Currently only operating as a takeaway and delivery outlet (from 7 pm to 5 am), Asirvatham says that the best sellers since he opened on July 23 have been their devilled chicken, chilli beef and szechuan fish (basa). “People prefer the Singaporean chicken rice or Szechuan noodles for mains,” he adds, pointing out that their molten choco cake with ice cream has also found many takers. “We only have the molten choco cake and brownie for dessert now, but will be adding at least eight Indian desserts by August 10,” he shares, clarifying that a little over a week from now, Nanking will also offer Indian cuisine. Fried rice at `160, starters at Rs. 140, molten choco cake with ice cream at Rs. 120. Delivery around Chennai city. Details: 43516444 —Ryan Peppin
