Overview

Before Biriyani conquered the taste buds of Malayali, there was Thenghachoru, Malabar cuisines crown jewel. Arafa Hotel at Tirur Road, Kottappadi, Malappuram is one of the few places in Malappuram, you still gets to taste this legendary dish in all its glory. This restaurant is open on all days except for Sundays from 7 am till 4 pm and concentrates mainly on their afternoon lunch hour dishes. Neychoru, Kanji, Beef Roast, Fish Fry, so on goes the list of mouth watering dishes they serve at this restaurant .

Detailed Write-up

When you get to Kottappadi at Tirur Road, you might not find Arafa Hotel in the first glance. Just after the junction to your right side you can see a small walkway besides Henna silks and go just 50 meters down that road to reach this place.

So what make you find this place right in the middle of Malappuram town, without any parking area, you might ask. Get to this small restaurant during their afternoon lunch hours and all your doubts will vanish. Thenghachoru, Neychoru, Kanji, Beef, Fish fry ... take your pick. You won’t be disappointed no matter which dish you opt to try from this list.

Well ofcourse, Thenghachoru is their main speciality among all the dishes they serve here. This dish with which was one of the unique and authentic delicacies of Malabar cuisine got bit side lined with the advent of Biriyani. Go try it with their Beef Roast and you will have a hard time figuring out how that ever happened. With its unique fennel and coconut flavour this dish can hold its own any day with any Biriyani.

Kanji is another dish that should get a special mention. Whether it is value for money or the sheer joy of having it with their Thengha Chammandhi, nothing can beat this item. Add few fish fries to the combination and it becomes legendary.

Started back in 2002, in its present location, this restaurant was earlier located on Perinthalmanna road. Started as a full time restaurant by Mr Kunjumuhammad, this place started concentrating more on lunch time once his sons took over the business. Shoukath and Salam, Mr Kunjumohammad’s sons are the one currently maintaining the restaurant.       

They have a small one hall dining area which gets jam packed during their afternoon lunch hours. Although majority of their customers are regulars, they do have people who visit this place to taste their special Thenghachoru and Beef combo.
