Adam's Teashop

South Indian

in Kozhikode (Calicut)

Distressed-wood shutters, vibrant paintwork and old-school radios create a retro-style scene at this wildly popular restaurant near the beach, where classic Malabari dishes are given a creative makeover. Biryanis come wrapped in banana leaves; there are jazzed-up chicken, beef or prawn tiffin boxes; or try the pachakkari or fish pollichathu.

Thalis (₹80 to₹95) served noon to 3.30pm.
