Ernakulam ( pronunciation (help·info)) refers to the eastern, mainland portion of the city of Kochi in central Kerala, India. The CBD is the most urban part of Kochi and has lent its name to the Ernakulam district. Ernakulam is called the commercial capital of the state of Kerala. The Kerala High Court, the Office of the Corporation of Kochi and the Cochin Stock Exchange are situated here. The Ernakulam Junction or South Station, Ernakulam Town or North Station and Ernakulam Terminus (now defunct) railway stations of the Indian Railways lies in Ernakulam. Initially, Ernakulam was the headquarters of the Ernakulam District but was later shifted to Kakkanad. Ernakulam was once the capital of the Kingdom of Cochin. It is located 220 kilometres (137 mi) north-west of the state capital Thiruvananthapuram. The city has served as an incubator for many Malayali entrepreneurs and is a major financial and commercial hub of Kerala.

I really like this restaurant but the smell upon entering is very disturbing. Of course after some time you acclimate so you can focus in the very good food. Delicious curries, great banana steamed fish. Average fish soup. Fab coconut bread. Decent wine. Stick to local wine to avoid the huge tax.
Fun to watch the chefs through the plexi window.
Old world/outdated atmosphere. But, this is India.
Poured my own wine!
Ice creams over-sweet.

It is only when the natural flavors of an Italian Gelato melts in your mouth, that you realise what you had been missing for so long. Straight from the streets of Milano's,an Italian family brings to Cochin, Italian Gelato with all its pureness and taste. Visit Milano Ice Cream today, add a few smiles to your day.
When in Italy, I am a two gelati a day person -- only wish I had found this gelateria sooner in Cochin.
The mango and chikoo gelati flavours that I chose were unique and fabulous. The other people in our group went for more traditional flavours like chocolate, Nutella etc and pronounced them excellent.
My son was comparing them with a new-ish chain in NY city (that is excellent) and said Milano gets the consistency even better.I concur! (BTW, Milano sculpts the second scoop into petals just like the NY establishment does.)
The price of Rs.90 for two quality scoops is ridiculously cheap by international standards (two scoops range from Euro 2 to 3 in Italy).

Visit to Lu Lu Mall, located near Edapally metro station in Kochi was an awesome experience for us. Said to be the largest shopping mall in India, it gets on an average 75,000+ visitors per day. The gigantic mall is extremely well stowed and professionally managed. There is hardly anything that you may not find here. It has food courts & restaurants offering multi cuisines and fine dining, reasonably priced groceries at the Hypermarket, family entertainment zones, fashion stores, jewellery, digital and electronic megastores, multiplexes, children's play area with an ice skating rink, bowling alley etc. We were told there is provision to park 3500 cars here. The mall has more than 200 commercial outlets. A walkway is under construction from Edapally metro station right into the mall.
During the period of our visit the mall was celebrating their 5th anniversary with big discounts, lucky draw and offers for the customers. With such huge number of daily footfalls the mall is extremely well maintained and managed. A must visit place when in Kochi.
An awesome place indeed!

Stopped in here for quick refreshment, and were astounded at the quality of their food. Really is first class. We had a Sandwich (on brown bread would you believe it!) and a pasta - both were delicious, especially the pasta. Their cold coffee was tastefully prepared with fine coffee, and the service was excellent. Such a pleasure to dine here.

Brindhavan has a choice of South Indian and North Indian vegetarian cuisine. Their puttu-kadala-pappadam is a must try...and their channa-battura is delightful! Brindhavan's lunch 'meals' and invigorating filter kaapi are absolute favourites too!
The place is clean and the staff, attentive. Ample car parking makes things easier. I'd say Brindhavan is easily the best vegetarian restaurant in Kochi!

Dosa is a favorite of not just south Indians but these days north Indians too. The Pai Brothers have given a new dimension to the traditional dosa by conjuring up more than 100 varieties. Eggs, cheese, butter, vegetables, different g4ams- they all have been added in various ways to the humble dosa to produce mouth watering delicacies. The costs are reasonable and after a sumptous meal at thier M.G Road or Edapally Toll (near Lulu) one can choose from thier array of soft drinks/coffee/tea to wash it down.
Enjoy your does but go there hungry so that you can do justice to the versions of dosas available.
