Going to Tirupati? Want to have delicious authentic Non-Vegetarian after Srinivasa Govinda's Darshan? Then head to Reddamma Mess, located on Beri street (Beri Veedhi) for some authentic spicy dishes and to get a whole new experience. This mess is a very old mess, I mean my father about 12-13 years back used to take me here and my father when he was young, he used to come to this mess it seems, so just take a rough guess about its age. I actually forgot the address of this, however, the name of the mess was in my head. Last year, we asked around and unfortunately, no one knew about this mess, however, this year when I went to Tirupati, I asked an auto walla about this place and he gave me an initial clue. Keeping that clue, we asked the hotelier and to my surprise, he knew about this place and he was surprised to know that I know about this place. He asked me if I was local, I was like "Yeah, for food I am local everywhere." Somehow we got the address, we took a cab and he dropped us at the location. I just spotted it instantly because nothing has changed, from the appearance of the paint. We went inside and at the entrance, same as in the past, Reddamma or Peddamma was sitting and greeting people who come in. We literally looked like westerners because of our attire was just too Bangaloreon. However, Reddamma just showed us the way and we went inside. The setup was the same, no changes, I mean the benches to the people, everything.
Points to Remember
1. Its a mess, so it surely is a mess
2. Very local, so the place looks little creepy
3. Greet Reddamma at the entrance
4. The service is different, experience it.
