Quality Seafood. It’s വെള്ളക്കാന്താരി (Vellakanthari).

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.

“Vella Kanthari” (White Chilli). The Talk of the Town.

It’s a small place. But people are flocking to this talk of the town seafood restaurant.

We went to this exclusive place on the container road in Kochi, Kerala, and were lucky to find seats without much waiting.

It’s a riot with seafood. You have them all, prepared in the traditional Kerala style. Sunu ordered crab meat and ‘Ayala Pollichath’ and I went for shrimp fry and natholi peera as special orders.

Served on fresh banana leaf, the steaming rice has thalkali koott, sambar, moru, aviyal , mathanga kari, naranga achar and other accompaniments all very tasty and authentic Kerala styled. There was even a payasam for desert.

And most surprising is the price. Just ₹630 ($9) for this feast for us two! ‘Are you sure you counted all’ I had to ask. The lady manager gave a beautiful smile.

I must mention the service. All managed by lovely ladies with charming smile and brimming with confidence. It’s worth going back for this alone.

Had a wonderful meal at an unbelievably low price. My consultant instinct will get me back there with a pricing proposal. Have the right price and at the right number to manage the crowd.
