This small restaurant in the suburbs of Kollam city got known among the food circle for their exceptional beef dishes. Hotel Jawan is located at Kanjaveli, Prakulam, near to the main bus stop. Dinner hours will be the best visit this place, which is open from 6 am to 10 pm every day. Beef Fry, Beef Curry, Chicken Curry, Porotta & Meen Curry are some of the items you could try out.
Like many other restaurants in the district, the name of this restaurant also evokes so many questions in the mind of a first time visitor. Founder of this restaurant was an ex-serviceman who came back to his native and started a small restaurant as a livelihood for his family. As this restaurant grew popular, people started calling it as Jawan’s (Soldier) Hotel and much later, when the newer generation of the family decided to name the restaurant officially, they called it by the name affectionately given to them by their patrons.
Now, this restaurant is located in a small village, some 10 – 15 kilometers away from the city. It is near Kanjaveli bus stop, Prakulam, which can be easily reached from High School Junction, Kollam. As this is a small village, you can find parking by the roadside once you reach the place as there is not much traffic in the area.
Afternoon lunch hours are their rush hours but if you are going to try their beef dishes evening time will suit you just fine as there is very less rush during this time. Most of their evening special dishes including beef are prepared in the afternoon itself and served to their customers after heating on order.
Beef curry and Beef fry, best tried with their porotta, are the must try items from this place. They do serve other local cuisine dishes like Chicken Curry, Egg Curry and Fish Curry too. Most of the customers who come here are regular, and local customers, so don’t expect much courtesy or professionalism in service. However, they do have a neat and clean ambience for an ordinary restaurant.
Three generations of culinary expertise are the main reasons for the taste of their dishes. Although nothing much extraordinary to boast about, they do serve some dishes that are worth a try if you fancy a trip to the suburbs of the city.
