15 Places to Get Delicious Kerala Food in Chennai

Our neighbor Kerala, A.K.A. “God’s own country,” is renowned for serving up some truly scrumptious, South Indian food. The meals are known for their beachy vibes and tropical twists on classic Indian dishes. The “Land of Spices” uses coconut milk in almost all its dishes, along with spices, giving its dishes a newfound depth in flavor and richness.

Seafood is a big part of Kerala cuisine but there are a multitude of delicious, vegetarian meals as well. Meat however, is often the main course in tribal and northern Kerala. We bought some of the West Coast delicacies to the East Coast. Here are 15 places to get some authentic Kerala food.
