One of the best rated in its category in Alappuzha, New York City Toddy Shop serves lip-smacking dishes in a naturally rich ambience. Located on Champakulam – Kandamkari road in Kuttanad Taluk, the toddy shop is set right in the middle of sprawling paddy fields. The toddy shop is open from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm every day, but obviously, the lunch hours are the best, especially on holidays, when they have a wide range of dishes available on their menu.

My experience at New York City Toddy Shop

Though lunch hours are the best, we were in New York City Toddy Shop for our breakfast. We tried thaaravu curry (duck curry), kaari fry (catfish fry), kallu appam (toddy fermented pancake), and puttu (steamed rice cake). What I enjoyed most was the pepper spiced duck curry. Based on our Food N Travel friends’ opinion, best to try here are duck curry, fish curry, karimeen pollichathu, and lunch.

I would appreciate if the restaurant gives a bit more attention to the cleanliness. When it comes to the prices, I feel New York City Toddy Shop is slightly pricy. It would be nice if the toddy shop aims to attract commoners too.

Unlike the usual toddy shop delicacies, here the duck curry was less spicy but had the fragrance and flavour of pepper, which I liked personally. More than all, the scenic view around the restaurant gains my appreciation for this toddy shop.

Prior to this experience, we had a toddy shop experience in Kuttanad, and that was in Garudagiri. It was another wonderful experience.
