Seafood items prepared in Kerala style are the main attraction of this place. If you wish to relish all the dishes available here, then it is best to go during the lunch hours. ‘Thalakkari’ is one of themost popular cuisines among the patrons of this restaurant. A red hot dish prepared with full fish head pieces is priced as per size of the fish head. The bigger the size the better the dish tastes.You can also select the size of the fish you want from all the head pieces that are kept in a huge steel basin.
‘Crab Roast’- A dish similar to ‘Thalakkari’ has three whole crabs served in hot and spicy curry. The crabs in their entirety look lively and this raw feel is what draws the foodies towards this dish.‘Prawns Fry’ is another delicious item to try from here. Served in banana leaves the prawns are deep fried giving them a crispy texture. Here, you get this dish in a better quantity compared to other restaurants.
You also get a variety of fish items everyday as per availability of the fish. A single fining area interspersed with wooden benches and tables, the simple ambience of the restaurant suits the traditional Kerala cuisines that they serve here. This hotel has become a de facto place to visit for anyone who coming to Thirumullavaaram Beach.
