The Harbor View Bar @ The Taj

After walking around in Cochin city the whole morning my brother and I had worked up a fierce appetite and thirst and since we don’t often get a chance to catch up over drinks we decided to make this special and headed off to the Taj which is just a few meters from Marine Drive.

The menu is rather clever in that they’ve given interesting names to the cocktails at the bar but you know me.. I need my Kingfisher! ๐Ÿ˜€ย  It felt so bloody amazing to take a swig of that chilled amber beer after a whole morning of walking in the sweltering sun. Just one mug later our spirits were up and we ordered some grub from the menu.

KF chilled!

We started off with Kerala style Beef Fry, spicy and cooked in coconut oil with generous helpings of coconut and onions. Then marinated Tandoori Fish Tikka, which was succulent and cooked to perfection. Next we went with some Spicy Pork, I just love it when they include pork fat/skin along with the meat! Finally we finished off with some Tiger Prawns which were marinated in garlic and ginger and then grilled with the shell on.

Prices are up to par with Star Hotel rates and it cost us a little over 3000 Rupees including a generous tip, that’s only about 20 KD.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Lucky dude ! I need to wait till July !

    The Grand Hotel has a nice cosy drinking joint (not the Taj’s league, nor does it have a view). Its ambience however is dark enough to keep you chilled at noon and it is usually riff raff free. Try it. They have great shrimp bites to go with a KF or two.

    I think the Taj needs to get better beer mugs.. that looks like a jam jar, so pansy.
