Where to head if you’re among those who crave the catch of the day
Mahabalipuram has its share of seafood places offering fresh catch (prawns, lobster, squid and a variety of fish), that are not to be missed. Moonrakers tops the list for their fiery masala squid rings, that they’ve perfected over the years. Others like Blue Elephant and Le Yogi are also popular in the coastal town. Details: 27442115
You have to be a real lover of seafood to enjoy the act of choosing what goes onto the pan, and eventually arrive on your plate. Whether you favour the simple grilled prawns or the heady Chettinad vanjaram (king fish) fry, here’s where you go for a pick and cook experience.
