We have been telling our new to Kochi friends that we will take them to Vellakanthari for a unique seafood experience. And when we did it today, they haven’t yet stopped singing praises.
We were there before the pandemic and I have even featured it here. It’s by the side road to national highway called ‘Container Road’ in Kochi, just 150 meters from the toll plaza. The place is managed and served 100% by women, and most pleasant and friendly for that matter.
What we get there! Everything fishy, yes fish prepared in many ways, exquisite prawn fries, crabs, squid, muscles and even fried fish eggs. Interestingly one variety of muscles was listed as oyster in the menu.
I must also say that they have the best Thali meal to go with those huge fill of fish. There’s one thing, one won’t get to taste the Sambar, pulissery and the like as their tomato, dal, shrimp coconut mix greenish yellow preparation is too good not to repeat.
The all women kitchen churns out the best tasting freshly caught seafood at the most affordable prices. It’s a humble small place with limited seating, but just heaven to the visiting customers who flock in their premium cars.
Want to taste seafood in the best form, come to Kochi and seek our company to watch you enjoying your tastiest seafood meal.
