Straight from Kotturpuram to Saket, this restaurant will take you on an (authentic) trip across South India. Even the locals would be proud! With its simple yet sophisticated traditional décor elements (antique brass vessels and knick-knacks, elegant wooden and cane furniture and ornate pillars) and its vibrant culinary presentation on the customary lush green leaf (on a metal thali thought!), Savya Rasa has a certain old-world charm, and we’re here for it!
Our colleagues from Chennai tell us that we have to have the Podu Idli Fry, Madurai Mutton Sukka or the ubiquitous fish finger in a Mangaluru style – Anjal Rava Fry. For the main course, feast on Gongura Pappu, or the famous Malabarian Kootu curry. There are a number of items on the menu, including pachadis, soups and other staples, so you’re likely to be spoiled for choice. Plus, all kinds of biryani!
And how could one possibly leave without dessert? The Elaneer pudding, a Kannur pudding made with coconut and China grass, is a must-have, as is the Ambalapuzha Paal Payasam which is a sweet porridge made from red rice and milk.
