Hotel kannappa is a one of those restaurants that believes in traditional style of cooking that is very rarely found in today’s fast food world. Their spices and masala’s are all made inhouse in Trichy where the brand was born.
The recipes are brought down from the grand mother’s and mothers and most of the dishes are slow cooked on woodfire. There is definitely no short cuts to a good meal.
This fish, chicken and Mutton are sourced fresh everyday. The highlight of the meal is the finale the elaneer/ tender coconut payasam.
Coimbatore has two outlets ( mind you all their outlets are owner run) one near the airport and another at ganapathy.
We started our lunch with the traditional soup Chettinadu Nattukoli Rasam
Chettinadu Aatu Eraichi Saru.
Spl Kannappa chicken
Chettinadu Pepper Chicken
Mutton Nalli Sukka
Mutton Kola urundai
Yeral Milagu piratal

The starters were a riot of flavours with everything fresh from the mutton to thr chicken to the fish and prawn. Each dish had unique flavours and spices.
The best main course and the most favourite dish in South India. Mutton biriyani!
The finale was ultimate with the elaneer payasam!
