There are many small restaurants that gain popularity with some unique food or serving methods. UBM Namma Veetu Saapaadu in Erode rose to fame due to the unique way in which they serve food, and also owing to the number of dishes on their platter. At UBM, they serve food in banana leaves. You might think, what is so special about it. Take a look at the size of the leaf, and you will understand the difference. Yes, the banana leaf is so huge that three to four people can dine from it.
UBM Namma Veetu Saapaadu is located at Perundurai in Erode. It is a restaurant that serves homely meals with a huge variety of dishes. They serve only lunch. The spread is so elaborate that some guests find it difficult to consume everything served. Most dishes are non-vegetarian, with more emphasis on chicken and mutton dishes. Seafood items are fewer than chicken and mutton. Mutton Rakthaporiyal, Mutton thala curry, and chicken fry and some of the items they serve as a part of the meals. Gulkand, which they serve for a sweet ending to the lunch, is delicious.
UBM Namma Veetu is not a luxurious restaurant. From outside, it looks like a tiny shack with thatched roof. But there are enough seating arrangements inside, and there are no reasons to complain about cleanliness. But the way they serve food on the same leaf for two or more people may not go well with everyone. The owner of the shop is quite friendly. He explains to you the way in which you should eat so that you can finish every dish. A handful of curry with a tiny bit of rice ? this is the way to eat according to him. All said, it can be a little overwhelming to see a huge leaf filled with curries from end to end.
This restaurant is located off the main road. You can find parking space near the restaurant. It is open only during lunch hours, which is from 1 PM to 4:30 PM. It is a popular eatery, so you need to book in advance. Sometimes, you may even need to stand in a queue for your turn. They accept the payment only in cash, so have a wad of cash ready in your pocket while going there. Food is not low-priced either.

When we visited the restaurant, we had a good experience. Although we loved the taste of food they serve, we did feel that the quantity of dishes could be reduced a bit. Hospitality of the owner also deserves a special mention. The meals cost us Rs.750/- per person.
