Kovalam is famous for its finger-licking seafood like lobsters, calamari or king prawns. It is also famous for its light, non-spicy vegetarian dishes. So begin your day with a breakfast of puttu and kadala (steamed hoppers with chickpea curry) and binge on a kappa and meen curry (boiled and lightly simmered tapioca with spicy fish curry) for lunch. For dinner, indulge in an iddiappam and stew (steamed string rice hoppers with chicken or vegetable stew cooked in light coconut milk).
Or you may request the chef at The Leela Kovalam to sample the best of the local cuisines in the most luxurious ambiences.
