Italian foods, now rages Kochi tastebuds

Some trends are almost impossible to miss. But here is one we didn’t see coming — Italian cuisine. George Bernard Shaw once said, “There is no love sincerer than the love for food.” And no country testifies this more than Italy. India’s Italian connection doesn’t just end with Sonia Gandhi. Italian food is now the rage in Kochi.



With more people travelling abroad and becoming more adventurous with respect to exploring new cuisine, and the rise in disposable income, Italian food has carved a niche for itself in the hearts and stomachs of Keralites.

Italian ingredients like balsamic vinegar and pasta crowd many a Kochi kitchen shelf now. With books like ‘Italian Khana’ by Ritu Dalmiya easily available at stores, it is simpler to make yummy Italian food at home. Kochi has been seeing a boom in the number of Italian joints for the past two years, which makes people familiar with the vast variety of Italian dishes.

Benedict P J, manager, Pizza Hut, Gold Souk, says, “Italian pizzas and pastas are among the most popular dishes. Pan pizza is now the hot favourite of
youngsters.”

There is Napoli pizza, Pompeii pizza, Quattro stagioni and Margarita pizza (with just cheese and sauce on it) that Kochi folks are delving into. It’s not just pizzas that stand out among Italian dishes. Pastas like spaghetti, macaroni, ravioli, penne, cannaloni and lasagna sheets are popular, too. Another reason why people prefer Italian food is its wide range of vegetarian options, thanks to the many meatless fasts of the Catholic church.

Italy is also well-known for its coffee, which is arguably the best in the world.
‘Cafe @ Cochin’ at Panampilly Nagar offers the best of Italian coffee. Lavazza, the essence that adds taste to their coffee, is imported from Italy. “We have a whole range of pastas and pizzas as well. Our cakes are also in demand. We mostly see the college-going crowd here. Our ambience is that of a lounge where they can hang out with friends,” says Anthony Sebastian, owner the food joint.

If it’s Italian desserts that you want, turn to Itty’s, Panampilly Nagar. A beautifully constructed bamboo structure which sways gently as you walk, Itty’s offers Italian ice-cream, better known as gelato, which is lower in fat-content than the usual ice-cream. Be sure to try out tiramisu cakes (‘Tiramisu’ means ‘pick me up’ in Italian). A layered combination of coffee, zabagilone cream and chocolate, this one is something the sweet toothed will not give a miss.

Besides these outlets, there is quite a wide variety of restaurants to choose from. ‘14 Avenue’ in Panampilly Nagar offers a full range of Italian dishes. Another preferred destination is ‘24 Carat’ at Gold Souk. ‘Four Seasons’ at Fort Kochi and ‘Cornucopia’ near Ravipuram are also favourite Italian haunts. Of course, international pizzerias ‘Pizza Hut’ and ‘Dominos’ are great alternatives, too.

A reason for the growing popularity of Italian food could be its similarity with the Indian cuisine. If you haven’t yet tried Italian food, now is the time to start, what with the number of options available. After all, as the age-old Spanish proverb goes, the belly rules the mind!

Wangs Kitchen a Chinese food Paradise
Quote:
The name itself tells you that the restaurant is Chinese! Being an international branded restaurant, the group has restaurants in Canada, Dubai and India (and as far as Kerala is concerned it is in our very own Kochi!!!). The restaurant offers you with the best Chinese dishes incorporating their Chinese cooking techniques and delicious Indian flavors! In Kerala, Wangs Kitchen is present only in our very own queen of Arabian sea-Kochi as for now. It is located in the New Indian express building, Kaloor.

The ambiance is completely soothing with the blend of sweet music and attractive interior décor! Apart from the other restaurants, before you start with the menu card, sauce-soaked cabbage leaves and mineral water will be provided to you. The menu of Wangs Kitchen provides you with so much variety of delicious dishes in vegetarian and non-vegetarian ends, starters, desserts, soups etc. that even if you are not that much interested in having Chinese food you will become a fan of it after you visit this wonderful place and just have a taste of the delicious and mouth watering Chinese cuisines prepared just for you! Although the cost charged by the restaurant is a little bit on the high end, it is completely compensated with the international level of hospitality they provide to us.

It is a great place for hangout with family and pals. The drawback remains in the parking of vehicle which becomes difficult on peak hours! What do you think about this restaurant? give away your opinion!

I have seen this joint, but thought it is just another shawarma/shavai joint that dot the landscape. Got to try this one.

Rahmaniya Kethel's Chicken

Rahmaniya Kethel's Chicken



The famous Kethel Chicken (a patented trademarked chicken like KFC), RKC is one of the oldest chicken fast food of Kerala, based in Trivandrum. Started inside Chalai market, as a small store, the Rahmaniya came to Kochi with a big bang, in a proper large restaurant format in 2007.

Today it entralls Keralites to large way with stores at Kollam, Kozhikode etc.

The Kethel Chicken is very small tender pieces of fried chicken made out of a secret recipe (they claim the spices are exclusively made by them, giving the distintive taste), topped with fresh red chillies.

The restaurant doesnot have any Ala-carte menu, rather a fixed menu comprising of 2 combos

1. Kethel Chicken Fry
2. Kethel Liver fry


Both are served with 5 pieces of soft chapattis, chicken gravy, salad and fresh lemonade. Guests can choose Ghee Rice instead of Chappattis.

The Ernakulam store is a proper family Air conditioned restaurant located in ground floor of A.J Residency, behind CPI Office (Lenin Center), Kaloor Junction.

D'Lip? that's funny.

The names of Tamil people in Pondicherry are often Frenchified. I know a Mouthoucoumarane, who would be Muthukumaran in Chennai.

I had once used a nom de plume (ie pen name തൂലികാ നാമം) Coumere De Lip

Amaara Kochi

Amaara- Maradu, Kochi





Kochi has several national coffee shop brands like CCDs, Barista, Lavazza and upcoming international brans like Costa etc, which provides a true international experience for youth to hang-out in evenings and unwind.

But the city has a unique hang-out, Amaara Kochi in the growing suburb- Maradu. The hangout offers an extreme authentic Kerala feel, while one enjoy traditional Kerala coffees, tea and popular Kerala evening snacks











Amaara is a venture started by a housewife, Rashmi Deepak, married to the famous Mangayil Tharavadu (the family reputed to noble courtiers of Kochi Maharaja), converted her in-law's ancestral property into a unique Kerala themed hang-out for youths to spend in evenings and enjoy authentic Kerala feel.






It is not a mere coffee shop, rather a Self-Help Group, registered foundation to provided unemployed housewives, to spend their free time, showcasing their talents and earning income out it.

The 120 year old house, built in classical Kerala Nalukettu architecture, houses a coffee shop, a reading room, a jewel shop where handmade jewelleries, both precious and non-precious are showcased & sold, an art gallery and an evening theatre.





Guests can relish authentic Kerala evening time snacks and savouries like Dosas, Appams, Unniappams, Vada etc while sipping coffee, watching a Kathakali performance or classical music feat in the Poomukham or participate in Kerala cookery classes or read a couple of historical books or novels or participate in jewellery making or paintings.











In short its a mixture of Keralaized Cafe Coffee Day set in a Fabindia settings.

Savouring the union of rice and wine
Quote:

The food festival at Rice Boat, Taj Malabar

"God made only water, but man made wine.” — Victor Hugo

Perhaps, Victor Hugo would have loved to be a part of Rice Boat at the Taj Malabar where chefs seem to have fully underscored the Italian proverb — rice is born in water and must die in wine.

The task was to live up to a gourmet of international standards, with a spread of the best of wines and Indian seafood. This was more of a marriage between wine and food. Into the crystalware, flows the wine in all its elegance.

“The recommended wines are Green Point NV Victoria Australia a fresh and delicious sparkling wine, combining rich flavour and superb delicacy, Pouilly Fume, Sauvignon Blanc 2009 Loire Valley, France, a great wine to pair with seafood. Fish and goats cheese too will match wonderfully with this classic sauvignon wine,” says Jayanta Das, Executive Assistant F&B Manager, Taj Malabar.

El Rosal Tarapaca, Pinot Noir 2009 Maipo Valley, Chile, with its juicy red fruit flavours and silky supple tannins, make the wine delectable. And Sauternes, Baron Philippe De Rothschild 2007 Bordeaux France is shiny gold in colour, open fruity nose (dried apricot) with botrytis notes and honey flavours.

The vast variety of Indian seafood tempts the tastebuds.

Masala crumbs, fried softshell crab prawn, garlic roast, crab and coconut soup, lobster ullarthu, fish pollichathu, prawn moily served with appam or rice and tender coconut souffle. The festival is on till June 26.

Latest worry is that many restaurants are closing down in Kochi at the same pace which they open. There is a long list
1) Tadka North Indian
2) Somewhere Else in Kadavanthra
3) Chinese Garden in Kadavanthra(NBC has now opened in the location)
4) Kochi Veg corner in Kadavanthra

and lots more. Is restaurant business not feasible in Kochi? What went wrong?

CHILLAX - 24 x 7 - A cafe for the motorbike enthusiast
Quote:


Chillax is simply the night rider’s choice.

Kochi has finally got its own 24-hour coffee shop. It is fast becoming a preferred getaway for the enthusiastic bike riders and car drifters who love to wade through the bald streets and soak in music.

It’s 2 am as I enter Chillax. The interiors are impressive and the white walls and the wooden floor look beautiful. Seated in a corner was a young couple talking in hushed tones. There is also a middle aged foreigner dozing off.

The wall decor invites you to spend time here, as a feeling of sturdiness rushes past the mind. Well, only the several elegantly-framed photographs of Harley Davidson motorcycles can create feelings of toughness. These bikes are renowned world over for their strength and power. I understood why Chillax is also called by many as a riders cafe.

The theme of the cafe is motorcycles and is dedicated to the spirit of bike riding. The craze for the world renowned Harley Davidson motorcycles is what propelled Kiran, who owns Fatboy and V-Road, two of the most popular models of Harley Davidson Company, to open such an eatery.

So if you are a hardcore biking enthusiast, as you sip a cappuccino, you can check the various books on the history of motorcycles.

As I was finishing up my cold coffee, a tall man came in, sat near me and took out a camera from his bag. He told me that occasionally he loves taking photos of the sleeping city, that he was done for the night and needed some refreshments.

More than just being a coffee shop, this unique place has become a refuge for several people who seeks emancipation from the day’s chaos.
