Situated near to Technopark campus, Hotel Pragila is one of the favorites of techies. Now don’t get you expectations high, this is not a three star hotel, but an ordinary hotel that won the hearts and minds of the techies with their afternoon meals and fish fry dishes and is located near Union Bank at Kolathoor. They are closed on all Sundays and will be open from 11:30 am in the afternoon till they run out of dishes, which happens usually by 2:30 pm.
Hotel Pragila has garnered a name for itself in the minds of techies so strong that make you wonder why executives who work in MNCs flock such a small hotel for lunch. This hotel is at kolathoor near Union bank and Corporation office. When traveling from kazhakoottam side, you have to turn left at Mukolackal Junction, just after Nippon Toyota Showroom and this restaurant is barely a kilometer away from the junction on left side.
Although there are a number of reasons why this place becomes a favorite among the employees at Technopark, the primary reason is the food they serve. Afternoon meals served with their special fish fry is the main crowd puller element of this place. The meals are simple yet tasty and have that genuine touch of homeliness to it. Meals served in banana leaves have two side dishes, four types of ozhichu curries and a chunk of Kappapuzhukku served with it. All the side curries and ozhichu curries such as sambar, rasam, parippu curry and fish curry are all equally good combinations.
Mackerel or Saradine are the usual choices of fishes you get to choose from with your meals from this place. Deep fried and crispy fish fries they serve make awesome combination with the meals they serve. Apart from being close to Technopark and serving good homely food another attractive point is the cheap price they charge for such good food they serve at this place.
This place gets a lot more customers than it can handle during their rush hours from 12 pm to 2 pm. After completing the meals, you have to clear the banana leaves yourself and dump it in the waste bin kept near the washing area.
This place is run by a family and all the work from cooking to serving is done by the members of the family themselves. They have converted a home into this hotel, so the food is not the only thing that’s ‘homely’ from this place. The restaurant has a long rectangular dining area with plastic stools and steel tables with granite tops as main furniture. As it is a converted house the place is maintained like a house too, even during their peak hours the service is efficient and they try to keep the place neat and clean as possible.
