I used to love the colourful biriyani in these mallu hotels, I still love the paya in these joints, they were called kaka hotels, wonder why !

Vikram, i remember that night, we were starved & marrybrown just shooed us away since we did not have nitrous. And crescent served us some terrific hot chicken kuruma with parottas, the best i have had in a long time & that too at 2.30 am.

Kaka is a term used in Kerala to refer to Muslims (like Nasrani is used for Christians) and all these hotels are owned by Mallu Muslims.

Well, this is the eating-out thread, right ? I would guess the story would be perfectly inline with the thread context, since its about chicken and all.
