If you are looking for a vegetarian lunch experience like no other, Mani Mess is the place to visit in Trivandrum. This homely meals restaurant is located on MoonnamPuthenTheruvu, Near Sreevaraham Temple, Manakkadu. Lunch hours are the best time to visit this place and they are open from 7 am to 10:30 am for breakfast and 12:30 pm to 3 pm for lunch.
Started by Krishnammal some forty years back, they started this place as a home delivery and parcel centre, which served breakfast and lunch dishes to people who worked at nearby establishments. As their customer base increased over time, the idea of starting a mess for their regular customers was suggested to them. This small vegetarian mess, started by the inspiration given by their customers, thus became an important point in the food map of the city. As there is very less thoroughfare on this road, you can park on the road sides just before the restaurant even though they do not have their parking area.
Lunch hours are the time to visit this place although they do serve breakfast dishes. Crispy parippuvada served with meals made the afternoon meal from this place a phenomenon among the gourmets. Meals served with two side curries, pappadam, pickle and curd are such a delicacy on its own, but when had with their parippuvada, it becomes a masterpiece among crazy combinations. Most of their customers who are regulars at this restaurant are ready to wait for 15-20 minutes to have this lunch time delicacy from this restaurant.
Krishnammals son Krishnamoorthy and daughter Thankam presently runs this restaurant. While Krishnamoorthy takes care of service and customer relations, Thankam who is said to have inherited the culinary skills from their mother, heads the kitchen. This homeliness they still maintain in their cooking and the very reasonable rates they charge, gives them a favorable image. They have a waiting area at the entrance itself and don’t forget to get a token as you enter the restaurant. The token ensures nobody who came late won’t get seated before you and no one stands beside you while you relish upon the delicacies.
If you are a vegetarian and looking for something out of the ordinary to try, then meals with parippuvada is definitely a combination you shouldn’t miss.
