It was on @jagathpk recommendation that I decided to try out @breklers in Jawahar Nagar. Located in a quieter part of Calicut town, this cafe hits all the right buttons.
This fusion restaurant serves Indian, Continental, Asian and Arab cuisines making it hard to come to a decision. We decided to ask for their recommendation after which we ordered,
1. Prawns Pie – ₹210
2. Baked Crab – ₹350
3. Beef Tenderloin Steak – ₹320
4. Thai Baked Fish (Hamour) – ₹1200
5. Mojitos – ₹130 to ₹150
It didn’t take long for the food to arrive and we kicked it off with the ‘Prawns Pie’. Topped with a grilled prawn and served with rich cream of prawns in a pie crust, this tasty snack is delicious and a little pricey for the quantity served. The pastry could be a little softer but isn’t an issue.
The ‘Baked Crab’ was delicious and is part of their special ‘Monthly Menu’. Packed with cheese, crab meat and crab sticks in a shell and baked, this creamy starter had to be my favourite item on the menu. You’ll be quite surprised to find quite a bit of crab so don’t be afraid to try it out.
The ‘Beef Tenderloin Steak’ comes well done and covered in the chef’s special jus. Though the cut of meat wasn’t as tender as I expected it to be, it was appetising. Good value for money and the mash is a great side and I would have also liked the vegetables steamed.
The ‘Thai Baked Fish’ was a sight with a whole hamour covered in coriander, green chilli and other spices and baked till cooked. This comes served with their in house kuboos and mayonnaise based sauce which I didn’t like that much. At ₹1200 it doesn’t come cheap since Hamour is expensive.
Thank you so much for the delicious ‘Tender Coconut Pudding’ and if you are visiting this part of town, don’t forget to check out this place.
