Fodor's Expert Review Menorah
Menorah, a fine tribute to Cochin's rich Jewish history, is in the former mansion of one of the city's best-known Jewish families, and the waitstaff will elaborate on the history and the family if you ask. Traditional Cochin-Jewish cuisine is served—try the chemeen ularth, a prawn fry, or plav, a rice and chicken dish, and the mutta roast (egg cooked with a variety of spices). The fine table linens and stately surroundings recall the royalty, prime ministers and dignitaries that once dined here. An excellent selection of pasta is also available. Sip a glass of wine while looking out onto the courtyard with a pool to complete the picture of a bygone era.
