The food won't disappoint here, even if the interior isn't much to look at. Specialties include biryani, a flavorful rice cooked with chicken or mutton, and kuthu paratha, a Kerala Muslim delicacy of flat bread stuffed with minced fish and served from 4 pm onward. Azad has become a chain, but the branch at Vazhuthacaud may be the best. The biryani is ready around noon and runs out by early evening, so make sure you get there on time if that's what you're after.
