The best thing about visiting Cochin is the sumptuous South Indian cuisine. For all those who have been to Kerala before, you know how utterly delicious the food is. Cochin flaunts a lot of the same flavours and dishes that the state is so popular for. Watch out for the lip-smacking seafood treats, in particular. Curries, soups and pickles made of crab, mussels and oysters are something you must try if you are a seafood enthusiast. Be prepared for the distinctive flavour of coconut in your food, as Keralites love to include coconut in whatever they cook!
