I heard a lot about “Shappu Curry” from my friends. So, when I visited cochin, I decided to have lunch from there. The ambiance will not attract you from outside and inside. But the food is awesome. We ordered Tapioca(Kappa in Malayalam), Pearl Spot (Karimeen pollichathu in Malayalam), Pomfret fish curry(Avoli in Malayalam). The fish was superb and mouthwatering. But... More

Located right behind the Maharaja's college on TD road. Nothing to shout about from the outside. Sort of shouts "Enter at your own risk". Have a seat when your turn comes and the experience begins. Friendly, smiling stewards will serve you a mountain of rice with all the traditional accompaniments. Eat to your hearts content, that's how good the grub... More

Shappu curry may not be your first choice when it comes to places to have a meal at. However it is also the first place you would go to for non veg traditional food if you are very very hungry. The place is right behind Maharajas college, you can park you vehicle on the road. One look at the place... More

First - you need to be ready to accept the "native" environment of this restaurant as it is not one of those tourist standard cleanliness. But food is beyond good in terms of the taste.

Famous for its shappu food, you will get all type of fish and other traditional non veg dishes usually got in toddy shops. But not a place for veggies. The rate is also high

Serves spicy Kerala Toddy shop dishes. Very popular as the district courts and a huge college are near by. fresh food guaranteed. But hygiene ??. Dont try it if you are not from Kerala or Andhra as the spices will burn you for the next 3 days. You have to wait in Q in the sun for a seat for... More
