Kumrakom is not in 1st Sector. I think thats sector 4 bang opposite BDA complex. I think you are referring to Kuttunadu. Kumarakom is a pretty classy place with extremely crappy food. Kuttunadu is a homely restaurant with awesome food. Their Karimeen Polichattu (not sure about the spelling) is one of the best I have had.

Ende Keralam is a classy place with prices to match. I haven't been to the one in Bangalore, but my father reports that the one in Chennai is really good. Just as a comparison, their Onam Sadhya was at Rs.450, compared to Thanima (which is a very basic restaurant) at Rs.150.

If you can handle spice, I would suggest going in for Kappa (Tapioca) and Meen Vevichathu (Red Hot Fish curry).

You can try Idiyappam (String Hoppers) with Masala Egg Roast, Puttu (Steamed Rice Powder and grated coconut) with Kadala (chick pea) curry.

You can try the Kerala thali (red/white rice, sambar, fish curry gravy, 2-3 veg. dishes - one of which will have coconut, papadam) and add chicken roast/crab masala/beef fry/prawn fry/squid fry/fish fry(either seer or bangda or mathi) depending on what you like. Thanima gives fish gravy, but am not sure if Ende Kerala will do that. Also Thanima does not have beef dishes.

I am not sure if any Kerala restaurant serves it, but one of my favourite Kerala breakfast items is steamed aithaka (big banana, the one used to make banana chips) split in half lengthwise and filled with grated coconut, butter/ghee and sugar (optional). It's quite simple to make at home if you have an idli cooker.

Happy eating!

Karimeen Pollichathu is the best in Ende Keralam followed by Kumarakom. Kuttanad serves oil fried karimeen in Pollichathu also. That spoils the taste. Being a Karimeen fanatic by choice, and having lived in Kottayam, and taken the trip to kumarakom ( the real place) on a weekly basis only to eat Karimeen, I would vouch for that.

ASAIK, they do not have a buffet option. Entire menu is alacarte. If you are going on weekends/fridays, do take a booking.

Agreed, many small time bakeries in Kerala do a better job, but in Bangalore we don't see them (have found any till day), so treating it as something is better than nothing

Recently read about this place called 'Istanbul Doner' near Indiranagar BDA Complex. It's a small place, not really for dining in I guess, with around 7-10 tables. Most people who came there seemed to want takeaway. I ordered on separate occasions, the Chicken, Lamb and Mixed Doner (Lamb + Chicken Mix). It is a nice change from the regular shawrmas with more meat and a more succulent spicy filling. The bread is made fresh too and is nice and soft. They also have Veggie options (I tried the Paneer roll, which I did not like).

Overall, a good snack to have (it took my order less than 5 minutes to arrive). The Doners cost around Rs. 90- 130 (depending upon the meat).

Last Sunday wife daughter and self lunched at "cheers Coorg" on Indranagar 80 ft road. Had string hoppers (idiappams), boiled rice, pandi (pork) curry, prawn curry and caramel custard. The food was SPICY. tasted good. servings OKish, bill 1200/-. Check it out on zomato.com. reservations are not required as there are about 148 seats and on sunday was relatively empty. valet parking available but i found parking close by. Dont like others driving my baby

I have found a great place in Bangalore which is on the lines of Labonel fine baking, Hyderabad.

Its called Cookies and is located at Sankey Road. The prices are on the higher side but the cakes are very very delicious.

The name of the lady who runs the show is Karishma and she can be reached at 98450-19341.

Waseem.
