May be its a southie thing, but Masala Dosas and Madras style filter coffee is for ever refreshing and an anytime favorite of mine. And my search for the typical southie Masala Dosas end at Gokul Oottupura restaurant at Kadavanthra.
A little pushed away from the main road and the hazzle and buzzle, situated at the beginning tip of Kadavanthra – Kaloor road, this restaurant is a different experience altogether. It’s pure delight at Gokul because apart from the quality food, the ambience at this place is very soothing and turns on your comfy switch in an instant.
With a typical tea-shop like interiors there’s lot of space and energy. Wooden benches and tables welcome you, unlike the cushioned ones at most other restaurants. Reminds me of the typical Kerala style nair tea-shops. There’s also wall paintings/murals done with an ethnic yet minimalistic touch and some soothing lightning.
And of course the most important part is the quality food. Very clean and tasty food that you can see getting prepared yourself in the open kitchen. Quite humbly this is the best I have tasted in the entire cochin, when it comes to vegetarian food. And its also remarkable that price tag won’t leave a hole in your pocket. Very reasonable pricing for the quality they offer.
If you happen to visit Cochin, and is looking for some nice vegetarian restaurant, step in confidently to Gokul Oottupura. My guarantee !
