Overview

Onakkan Bharathi aka Bharathi Vilasam Hotel at M.A.Road is a landmark and anyone who has at least spend a year in the town will know about it. This century-old hotel known for its traditional Kerala breakfast dishes is open from 5:45 am till 8:30 pm. It is closed till afternoon on all Sundays. When you come you must try the different varieties of ‘Puttus’ available here.

Detailed Write-up

You must be wondering how this hotel got such a peculiar name. Well, Onakkan was the name of the owner and founder of this small restaurant located right in the heart of the city. He had named this hotel after his wife’s name- Bharathi. But as the restaurant grew famous, people started to call it by the owner’s name to distinguish it from the other Bharathi hotels that existed then. And eventually this restaurant became more recognisable by its acquired name- Onakkan Bharathi.

This small eatery without any signboard is located at M.A.Road directly in front of Kannur Railway Station.

‘Mulankutty Puttu’ is a special dish of this hotel. It is prepared using bamboo cylinders instead of ordinary steel vessels to retain the original taste of the dish. It is also said to be better cooked than the ‘Puttu’ prepared in steel vessels.

‘Puttu and Mutton Curry’ is the most famous combo available here. Puttu mixed with hot spicy mutton gravy tastes superb. You can even add some pappad to make it crispy. This is a very tasty Kerala combination dish. A much simpler combo is ‘Puttu, Pazham and Pappadam’ which is way cheaper too. Puttu is served with Robusta banana. This one makes for a sweet and crunchy combination.

‘Avil, Milk and Sugar’ is another low-priced Kerala breakfast dish from this restaurant. This combination is quite similar to having cornflakes with milk that dominates the English breakfast menu. Avil is also served with banana and pappadam which makes for a different combination.

The main customers of this restaurant are those who are employed in the nearby establishments inside the market. The limited dining space is furnished using wooden benches and tables. There are even seats placed near the cash counter to accommodate as many people as possible during the peak hours. The place is also not quite neat and clean.

There is no car parking area available anywhere in the congested street leading to the hotel. But don’t ever consider taking your vehicle inside the market area. It’s better to park it on the main road or inside the railway station compound and walk up to the hotel from there.
