In 1977, Srinivas set up a pushcart along with his wife and started selling just two items – ghee oothappam and ghee idli at Chennai's Sowcarpet, a location populated by North Indians. Soon, people started calling him Seena Bhai and that’s how the name was coined – Seena Bhai 1977 Tiffin Centre.

Today, the restaurant has over seven branches across the city selling over a hundred varieties of dosas, idlies, chaat, and sweets.

But ask a regular and they would tell you that their favourite plate is still at the first tiffin centre that was set up in the crooked streets of NSC Bose road, where the aroma of ghee would make you forget to count your calories.

You must try the mini idli tossed in podi and ghee, murukku sandwich, tender coconut kheer, khakra sandwich, and pizza dosa.

Their star ingredient is ghee as every dish at Seena Bhai's is made with pure ghee brought specially from Andhra Pradesh.
