Next time you visit the Besant Nagar beach and are famished, succour is at hand.
Parked on Third Main Road, Besant Nagar is Food Shuttle, a restaurant on wheels that dishes out hot and tasty home cooked food from insulated containers.
Visitors to the beach have started thronging the place to satiate their hunger pangs.
Launched by V.P. Aksher Maxvel, an electronics and communication engineer, the mobile kiosk is an improvised version of the mobile eateries.
The well-lit mobile eatery has a trader's licence and bills are issued from a hand-held billing machine.
Mr. Maxvel said the prototype of mobile kiosk, which has been entirely designed by him, cost him Rs. Four lakh and took more than a month to be fabricated.
“The mobile kiosk was launched only a week ago and has been getting good reviews from the people about the food as well as the aesthetics of the kiosk.”
As of now, the eatery is stationed under the Adyar Flyover near the Adyar Signal during lunch time and parked in Besant Nagar to cater to customers at the beach for dinner.
The mobile kiosk serves mango rice with potato fry and chicken biryani for lunch from 12.30 p.m. to 3.30 p.m.
For dinner that is served between 7 p.m. and 11 p.m., it is chicken biryani and iddiyappam with chicken gravy.
Mr. Maxvel said health drinks and snacks will be added to the menu very soon.
He proposes to build 20 mobile kiosks of this prototype in the coming months.
