From Kozhi Roast To Squid Koliwada: These Restaurants Serve The Best Coastal Food In Kolkata
Mangalore, Kerala, Goa and more: get a taste of the salty sea at these coastal food restaurants in Kolkata – you won’t miss dosas anytime soon.
As if the name doesn’t say it all, Coastal Macha is all about surf and sea. With Mangalorean, Goan and Kerala-style food, their seafood dishes are to die for (think Prawn Ghee Roast, Goan vindaloo and Kerala-style Malabar curry). They’re also one of the few places in the city with a coast-inspired dessert: the tender coconut pudding is a coconut-y smooth and light pudding which will cleanse your palette as you finish your meal. The multi-coloured boat figurines on the wall, sand and seashells under the glass table tops and general blue hue give you the vibe of being right on the beach. Take a look at the ceiling lights – they’re light bulbs surrounded by traditional jhuri baskets – it doesn’t get more creative than that.
One of Kolkata’s iconic South Indian food restaurants, Tamarind is known for their appam and stew. Step into what feels like a traditional South Indian cottage complete with wooden furnishings, traditional water glasses, woven place mats and welcoming staff. If you have a weakness for Chicken Chettinad, you’ll be a happy foodie here. Along with that, some of the classics they serve are Malabar Curry and Coorg Chicken Fry – south Indian non-vegetarian food for the win!
With natural light flooding in and fresh South-Indian style curries on the stove, you’ll be reminded of your trip to Kerala. Served on a banana leaf with appam, the Kerala-style stew tastes of the ocean. Kozhi Roast and Mutton Olathede (packed with spice, the soft dry mutton curry will melt in your mouth) are must tries. Go early so you get place to sit: the restaurant is small and fills up fast around lunch time. You can even take the card of the owner and contact her before your next visit and she’ll be sure to keep extra helping of their famous mutton stew aside just for you.
