You Buy We Fry


This is the motto of the fishermen and street vendors as they sell the day’s catch. All you have to do is select your fresh fish, then a guy from one of the neighboring food stalls comes to you and cooks it just the way you like it.

Since I bought Tiger prawns I didnt want him to drown its natural flavor in a heap of spicy masala so I asked him to grill it with some garlic and chilies. My brother commented that it was the best prawns he’d ever had and I must agree.

They were delicious and we quickly finished them off. Be on the look out for cats near your tables as you sit down to enjoy your meal. 🙂

    1. This is Fort Cochin, right near the shore where all the Chinese nets are located. You’ll find stalls selling fresh fish and once you’ve bought your fish you’ll be asked if you want it cooked there for you.
