A highway restaurant known among the travellers for its afternoon meals and fish items- Hotel Dhamodara is located at Thuravoor, just 500 metres away from the Thuravoor temple. This restaurant is open from 7 am to 8 pm except on Sundays when it closes down by 3 pm. It is best to visit this place between 12:30 pm to 3:30 pm. Afternoon meals, Kakka Irachi, Meen Curry, Meen Varuthathu are some of the main dishes to try here.
Homely meals and fish items are what made this ordinary hotel on N.H. 47 so popular among the highway travellers. This hotel, which has been around for almost 60 years now, was named after its founder-Dhamodaran. It is presently run by his family members.
When coming from Ernakulam, you can spot Hotel Dhamodara on the right after crossing Thuravoor Junction. It is just 500 meters away from the Thuravoor temple. The restaurant lacks a parking area of its own. But you can easily find a place to station your vehicle along the roadside.
‘Meals’ are served in banana leaves during the afternoon in this restaurant. Only two curries are served which are more than enough to finish the meal along with pickle. ‘Fish Curry’ is the most preferred dish to have with the meals. The curry is prepared with the fish available in the market that day. Though red hot in colour, this dish is not too spicy but cooked really well.
‘Kakka Irachi’ or ‘Mussels Fry’ is another item on offering that you can try with the meals served here. This dish is so hot and spicy that you would want to gulp down gallons of water the moment you take the first bite of it. Different types of ‘Fish Fries’are also available in this restaurant. Fish varieties such as Sardine, Mackerel, Silavu are used to prepare these items. The fishes are crisply fried in oil with an average spicy masala that tastes great with the meals.
After having the meal in banana leaves, the customers need to put the leaves into a bin placed near the wash basin.
The single room dining area of the hotel is furnished using plastic chairs and tables with granite tops.All most all the work in the restaurant is done by the members of the same family. They try to bring in that homely flavour in all the dishes prepared by them. Both regular patrons and walk-in customers visit the hotel especially during the afternoon peak hours. Good homely food and cheap price have made Hotel Dhamodara what it is today- A good highway restaurant dedicated in serving foodies for years now.
