Fodor's Expert Review Menorah

$$$ Kochi Indian

A fine tribute to Cochin’s rich Jewish history, Menorah is in the former mansion of one of the city’s best-known Jewish families, and the fine table linens and stately surroundings recall the royalty, prime ministers, and dignitaries that once dined here. Traditional Cochin-Jewish cuisine is served—try the chemeen ularth, a prawn fry, or plav, a rice and chicken dish, and the mutta roast (eggs cooked with a variety of spices).
