In Kundapur,Shetty lunch home takes the top spot.Love the fish items there.Still hasnt changed once inch for the last many many years.

JK International has good food too.The prawn items and the Chicken ghee roast is yum.Believe,its pure value for money.
I had taken my parents and my brother for lunch back in August and for 5 people,the amount came to around 900(This had soups,fish,prawns,chicken and fresh lime )

Had been to Coastal Heritage at the JK towers Kundapura on new years eve.
The food was excellent and VFM.
We had 1 Full Chicken Biriyani,1 baby corn chilly,2 soups,2 fish frys.
All this for Rs 300.Couldnt beleive my eyes.
I was telling my wifey and Mom that the same food in an average restaurant in Blore would have cost nothing less than 700 INR

Was in Udupi for a pilgrim visit; Diana and Sri Krishna (the temple) were the primary destinations.

Unfortunately, had to leave out the frist destination siince we were there for hardly 18 hours, including sleep.

Had to be satisfied with food from a small, no name joint, just near the exit of the temple. Dunno how to describe the location. There is a huge conch placed here, and "Vadiraja Mandir" board on the wall adjacent to this cafe(?).

Probably because we were extra hungry, but we had two plates of all their snacks - "mangalore baji" - small round balls; "biscut roti", and capsicum rotis. The tea was excellent, but they may start servint it in spoons next time I visit there.

Apart from JK International there's even Kinara Beach Restaurant at Kody beach not too far from the NH-17 !! Awesome place to hang out with family or friends over some great seafood and watch the sun go down over the Arabian Sea. Sigh. Pure bliss!
The only disadvantage is when a sandstorm or rain starts to kick in!
Best time to visit - October to May!
Damn I miss South Kanara so bad!

Thumbs up Re: A Guide: Eating out in Mangalore

For vegetarians, the newly refurbished 'Mohini Vilas' at GHS road, M'lore is a very good restaurant for authentic vegetarian snacks of South Canara. And next to it, is the best in town, value for money full veg. meals at 'Sri Krishna' Hotel Mess.

During this summer holiday, since my family was back in Manipal, we had decided to put the whole chicken ghee roast mystery to rest.

First stop, Shetty Lunch Home. We called up in advance and booked the ghee roast. The 45kms trip took as many minutes. As we walked in, we realised that the place hardly has any ambiance. They did have a bunch of A/C family rooms, all taken up by families or just regulars I suppose. We had to sit in the central room, which was semi-dark, no lights, and it was hard to see what you eat.

I told I had reserved ghee roast in advance, he asked my name and then delivered it. The chicken ghee roast... was good, but not up to the hype it has generated here. Not good enough for people to travel all the way from Bangalore to Kundapura. I think my wife and kids liked the anjal fry better. On the way back, we went to parijatha ice-cream which has a very good gudbud.

Same day night, I ended up eating one more chicken ghee roast at the Udupi Team-BHP meet at Sharada International. There was nothing great about that one. Otherwise food is very good in Sharada International. However, at that meet, I heard the rumour that the cook from Shetty Lunch Home (Kundapura) has moved to King's Garden at Brahmavara. Therefore, now King's Garden has a great Chicken Ghee roast.

Few days later, my wife and I decided to test that rumour too. Brahmavara being lot closer, it was easier. The ambiance in their main hall was close to nil, but they had AC family rooms upstairs, each can seat 7-8 people.

We ordered Chicken ghee roast, Chicken tawa fry and prawn fry. The tawa fry and prawn fry were simply outstanding, we were actually eager to know how their ghee roast is going to beat it. But it didn't. They skimped on ghee in a ghee roast. Actually, their tawa fry looked very similar to CGR at Shetty Lunch home. May be they should swap the names.

Same week we also tried CGR from Hungyo in Manipal, that was a sorry excuse for Chicken Ghee Roast. It looks more like a tikka masala.

My rankings:

1st Rank : Chicken Tawa fry (King's garden)
2nd Rank: Chicken Ghee Roast (Shetty Lunch Home)
3rd Rank: Chicken Ghee Roast (King's garden)
4th Rank: Chicken Ghee Roast (Sharada International)
Disqualified : Chicken Ghee Roast (Hungyo Saiba)

Does anyone here know about the famous KT cafe in Kalladka near BC road? Located on the Bangalore Mangalore highway.

KT or K- Tea or stands for Kalladka tea, A unique kind of tea prepared only in Kalladka. The tea tastes absolutely delicious!! It comes in 2 layers in the glass it is served. Not tea in the bottom and cream on top, it is the other way around. Cream in the bottom and tea on the top. I wonder how they do that.

Here is a video I found about this cafe :

I will be in Udupi tomorrow. I am thinking of lunching at Pisces. The last time I was there was in 2003, the day I wrote the last B.E. exam. Nostalgia!

That was an impromptu meet since a wellknown BHPian was passing by the town. It was arranged on the same day, I could only call people who were in my contact list.

https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/team-...ml#post2321400

We'll do a planned one soon.
