No:10 Fort Cochin : Eat your way through Cochin

A delightful new addition to the Bangalore, No.10 Fort Cochin, brings to us the food from God’s own country. With the walls adorned with the sketches and art of prominent historical, cultural structures to the quintessential  Chinese fishing nets and house boats…. and the beautiful home (of the owners) by the backwaters – The original No.10 Fort Cochin. This cosy new place lets you soak in a bit of Cochin while you savour the food from the land.

Butter Garlic Prawns and the Spicy – Tawa Prawns made with house special spices.

 The place is owned by the wonderful couple Vinoo Vijayan and his wife of Karthiyayni Hotel fame in Cherthala. His wife is the brain behind all those dishes on the menu. What they’ve brought for us is the recipes from their family kitchen, some heirloom recipes and a good mix of some popular food the kerala cuisine. Predominantly a non-vegetarian fare , but the menu does have few lovely vegetarian options. But must be praised is the fact that the owners would be more than happy to accommodate special requests – including any veg dishes if you need  (and if it is possible). Truly sign of warm hospitality. ❤

Known for its immense love for seafood, Fort Cochin offers some incredible seafood varieties.

They recently hosted a Seafood festival and some of us bloggers were invited to try out the seafood menu.

This special menu offered a great line up of dishes made with red snapper, pearl spot, Squids, prawns, pompfets and crabs. And an excellent sadhya that would a vegetarian’s delight. The sensational meen curry ( unfortunately, missed taking a picture of) needs a special mention. Followed by some gorgeous sweet treat-  pazham pori – one of the most popular go-to evening snacks , back in kerala ( with cup of chetta’s chayya ofcourse)

Here is a glimpse of some of the delicacies we had :

The traditional all day breakfast – Puttu with Duck roast curry
Tawa squid rings
House special Pomfret fry !!
Meen polichattu – Fish cooked in banana leaf
Prawns Porichattu
Sadhya with elements such as avial, Kaalan , olan , nool puttu/ idiyappam, and payasam etc.

 

Pazham Pori

Although the seafood festival is over at No.10 Fort Cochin, one can still enjoy the regular seafood fare that is on offer. Do swing by the place if you crave for some kerala non-vegatrian delicacies. A lovely little place with food that has it’s heart at the right place and where you can expect a service with a smile. A lovely interaction with Vinoo and his wife would be a bonus.

Thank you Vinoo and family for hosting us and Anuradha for the invite.
