'Spice Hut' - how's that for a restaurant's name? Clichéd, but good enough, isn't it? That's what I thought too. This 'Family Restaurant' at the Pattom junction, just around the corner of the Pattom-Marappalam turn had been in my cross-hairs for quite a while.
Dinner with two friends at the 'Spice Hut' may not exactly be the ideal way to spend the Christmas eve. The restaurant is not too big, but is comfy. Unfortunately, that's the only good thing I can say about this place.
To save you from the blabbering, here's a quick list of things we had:
1. Cream of tomato soup - Terrible
2. Chicken 65 - Even more so!
3. French fries - Horrible!
4. Roti - Not bad
5. Kadai Chicken - Pretty bad
6. Chicken kothuparotta - Not bad
7. Veg. kothuparotta - Not bad
8. Fresh orange/pineapple juice - Good
All the dishes were drenched in some weird oil with lumps of turmeric in the chicken!
This place may not be so tough on your pockets, but when it comes to your apetite, it's a whole different story!
Definitely not a good place to have dinner, and especially not on Christmas eve!
PS: There's a Chinese and Thai food festival going on at Hotel Horizon (Dec 25-30). How 'bout that!
