Thanks Naveen. For seafood, we used to greatly enjoy the seafood buffet by the Avenue Center, not sure if it is still there now. I think it was a Friday dinner only special. The desserts and cake slices from French Toast are really really good but I feel they are too rich. You cant eat more than a piece. For birthdays, Cake Hut cakes are the default choice now for us. We had been to the Grand Hyatt for my Mom's birthday dinner and they gave us a free chocolate cake to help celebrate the occassion. That was so divine that we decided that the next birthday cake we order will be from them.

The Asian Kitchen has good food but unfortunately the service there is bad. They take forever to bring the bill even if there are no customers. We have given them this feedback several times. They never learn. Last time there was some billing issue as well.

We had a terrible experience with the Marriott Kochi, I had shared some details on the Kochi solar panel thread. It deserves a post of its own since there were several bad experiences that we had that day. Safe to say, I will advise everyone to avoid their ground floor restaurant. I had shared the details on the health and safety issue on that popular FB group that Kochi foodies are a part of but not surprisingly it never got approved by their moderators

deathwalkr - I have skirted with the idea of trying the Hellboy several times but thanks to your post, I will keep such thoughts out of my mind from now on!

Oops, the guys at TBJ might be after me now for dissuading potential customers

But you should try it, maybe split it with friends?

Burgers @ Supreme Upper Crust

Tried the Grilled Ham (Beef) burger. It is big. Wide but not tall. Open it to see just tender chunks of meat inside [cut from a steak?].

Unlike usual burgers, no cheese, no veggies etc.

Disappointed.

Took a bit and man oh man, was it divine! Totally worth the 250 odd bucks.

The steak cuts are just tender and the flavour with the buns just makes it taste really really good.
