Overview

Puducherry (or Pondicherry as the world still knows it) is a slim slice of France, deposited neatly besides the azure waters of the Coromandel coast. Stroll around its seafront promenade and you could be forgiven for thinking you were in a Provencal village. Bright plaster houses lining neat, narrow lanes; flower-laden grillwork balconies; blue enamelled street signs; and staying carefully out of the sun, even policemen in red kepis.
This is, of course, the old French Quarter, justly famous, celebrated in literature and legend, and arguably, the only Puducherry most visitors ever see.

But enter a little deeper towards the heart of town, away from the neat occidental geometries of the seafront, and you come into quite a different world. Not France with a touch of the Orient. Indeed, quite the reverse. The Tamil Quarter of Puducherry is a place where cultures not only met, but melted and gave birth to a way of life found nowhere else in the world. Maison Perumal is a tribute to that way of life. A sepia serigraph of another time - dusted off perhaps, but not retouched.

The Maison Perumal experience is minimal only because it is completely sincere. As unvarnished as the Cuddapah stone floors, yet as alive and colourful as the sunlit stained glass of the balconies. It took more than a year and a half to restore the building itself, and to refurbish it with a studied attention to detail.

Cuisine
Would you expect a menu card if you stayed as a guest in a friend's house?

What about a choice of entrees?

And of course, you'd find it strange if their dining room had a name. Reason enough for Maison to dispense with these things, leaving only the essence of what mealtimes are actually about - really good cooking.

The anonymous dining area at Maison Perumal features just one signature dish through the day.  For Dinner, there's also a grilled seafood platter. Not only is the catch fresh, but you can be sure, so is everything else. You see, they have no icebox, so the question of storage does not arise. Simplicity has its own delicious flavour...as many will discover, perhaps for the first time.
