We had been to Parika yesterday night for dinner. It is a restaurant on the CMH road, which serves mangalore cuisine. If you love neeru-dosas, sannas, kori-rotti, tangy and coconutty fish curries, this is a place you should visit. The food is excellent. We had Kori-Rotti, Bangde-Masala (Mackerel curry) and Neeru Dose. Both the fish and the chicken curries were beyond par excellence. Only my grandma’s curries could top these. And the place is not very expensive either.
However, the biggest let down was the service. It was a bit slow, I found the waiters a bit too grumpy. Probably they had a long saturDay. Oh yeah, the price for the fish curry mentioned in the Menu Card differed from the price on the bill. The explanation given was that the price depends on the size of fish, which we thought was outrageous since it wasn’t mentioned in the menu card.
From our prior experience, we suggest Sunday afternoons to be the best time to visit the place. They have additional mangalorean delicacies on Sunday afternoons. And ask about the prices before you order. Else you might be in for a surprise 😉
PS: After dinner, we went to Corner House for a trial DBC test. K and I ordered DBCs for ourselves with chocolate scoops instead of vanilla scoops. While I finished mine, K struggled to finish his/her first one, cursing the cake! However, he/she still claims to have confidence in his/her digestive system and wants to go ahead with the bet. So keep watching this space for updates 🙂
