In an out-of-the-way hotel south of Mattancherry, this plain-looking restaurant is a well-kept secret. Ignore the multicultural cuisine and go straight for a fish dish like the prawn curry or the meen pollichathu (spiced fish steamed in a banana leaf), which is so hot even Malayalees break a sweat. If you'd like it toned down, send a message to the chef when you order.
