Craving for the some hot, fresh and mouth-watering Punjabi cuisine? Don't worry, you do not have to day-dream about those wayside dhabas beside the mustard fields in the land of five rivers.
Introducing you to Kochi's very own Punjab house
This food joint is situated in one of Kochi's most bustling shopping areas—Broadway. It is approximately 200m away from the CSI Immanuel Church situated at the junction. Here is a hint, don't be deceived by its surroundings. This is one of the local favourites!
How do you get there?
The Punjab House is easily accessible from any corner of Ernakulam city. There are several buses that ply via Menaka, a shopping complex situated along Broadway. The restaurant is not more than a 10 minute ride in an autorickshaw from the heart of the city. If you really want to build an appetite before tasting the cuisine, you can consider walking to the restaurant as well.
Why must we go there?
Punjab House has been a rather popular joint for many residents of Ernakulam, especially students. It is known for its hot and freshly made Aloo parathas with a generous helping of butter served along with onion slices and pickle. The meal can also be made complete with a refreshing glass of cold Lassi. The restaurant's semi-open kitchen adds a unique charm to the place.
You might want to try the dry Aloo Sabji and go easy on the mutter-paneer. Not that the mutter-paneer is bland, but the Aloo Sabji is truly delicious.
The service is rather fast and satisfactory.
I would say the food is rather reasonable and would surely not burn a hole in your pocket. It is affordable to all and does satisfy the craving for Punjabi food to a rather large extent.
So run along and indulge!
