Well-known for its fish fry and afternoon meals, this hotel without any name is located right beside Volga Bar at K.K.Road near Kadavanthra Junction. Homely meal is what made this restaurant so popular that has been functioning for almost 20 years now. It serves customers every day from 12:30 pm to 3 pm and is closed on Sunday and on all government holidays.
This hotel set on the porch of a house will make you wonder what all the fuss about this place is. You can see people waiting along the narrow lane in front of the restaurant to have food here right from the time they start serving afternoon meals which is the only item available on the menu.
This eatery sans any proper name is popularly known as ‘Meenkada’ among the regulars here most of who are employees at the nearby hospital and bank. Located on a concrete lane right beside Volga Bar at K.K. Road when coming from Kadavanthra Junction, the hotel lacks a parking lot. So, you need to park your car by the roadside on K.K.Road while bikes can be taken inside and parked near the restaurant.
‘Chemballi’ or ‘Red Snapper Fish’ is the usual fish variety available at this restaurant with their meals. They don’t serve small fishes like Sardine or Mackerel. The taste of the lightly fried tender fish along with homely meals is what makes this place so famous among its patrons. ‘Meals’ alone are tasty enough in this restaurant unlike other similar establishments where meals are barely something to have with the fish fries they serve. Here, you get meals with two types of side curries, pickle and different ozhichu curries. Instead of water they give ‘kanjivellam’ along with the meals to quench your thirst.
Only quality products are used in all their preparations. This is why when fish is not available in the market they simply close down the shop for that day. So, it is advisable to call and confirm before coming here. Ambience-wise this place is nothing much to talk about. They have few plastic tables and chair laid out in front of the house. You can even see people sitting on the steps of the staircase and having food here.
Service is bit slow as the family members themselves prepare the dishes and serve food to the customers. It’s always better to come to this hotel early when they open so that you can eat peacefully without people breathing down your neck for you to finish and go
