Vella kaanthaari

After 3 p.m, it is very difficult to get lunch at Kochi. By that time, most of the hotels would have exhausted their food supply. Many of them have breaks from 3p.m to 5p.m. Yesterday, when we completed our work at Kochi it was almost 3p.m, and then we got into the traffic jam. After all these, it was almost impossible to locate a reasonably good eatery. Our definition of a good eatery is 'value for money'. It must be reasonably clean, the food must be tasty and should not cost much. When we almost gave up hope of having lunch (kerala fish curry lunch), we noticed the board 'vella kaanthaari' which means white chilly, a small hotel on the container terminal road, near the upcoming toll gate. at ponnarimangalam. This is hardly 15 minutes drive from the heart of Kochi. We had two kerala fish curry lunch along with maanthal fry, and kozhuva fry and then we purchased crab meat ularthiyathu for dinner, which was uite yummy. Sunday is holiday for them. If you want to experiment with spicy kerala sea food at an affordable price, this is one of the places to visit.
