Craving Meen Curry? This New Eatery Is Nailing Keralite Cuisine

3852 Interested |


Finding a Keralite place to eat in Mumbai is not difficult. But, finding a place that serves authentic and amazing food with perfect flavours from the South is not so easy. To end this struggle, Rohit Albin Cheyaden, after working in Sydney in restaurants like Mr. Wong’s and Longrain, has opened his own restaurant called Adipoli in Kalyan.

Tell Me More

Rohit came up with this name because his grandfather, who was a connoisseur of good food, used to say ‘Idha Adipoli aan!’ {It is awesome!} after eating a decadently prepared meal. Just like the name, a lot of things about the restaurant come from Rohit’s memories and roots, which he is very proud of.

The menu of the restaurant is inspired by Chef Rohit’s grandmother’s and mother’s recipes. There are a few dishes that stand out like Kozhi Kondattam {INR 300}, which is chicken chunks tossed in a sambal of chilli and shallots. Another signature dish is Molly’s Meen Curry {INR 350}, which is the catch of the day simmered in a Cheyaden family’s favorite recipe that has been cooked by chef’s grandma, Molly Anthony for over 40 years. The dish is cooked and served in a traditional earthen clay pot called a “chetti”. It uses a special citrus fruit called “kudampulli” or gambooge.

Also try their Meen Pollichathu {INR 350}, which is silver pomfret cooked en pappiotte banana leaf with a marmalade of shallots. And to end the meal on a sweet note, try the Thiramizu {INR 250} which is made with filter coffee, cocoa and sponge.

So, We're Saying...

For your next dinner date, we recommend Adipoli because its food and beautiful stories behind it will make for a good conversation starter as well. Happy eating!
