Whenever I am in Trivandrum and the name ‘Ustad Hotel’ pops up, I think of going for dinner to this local eatery. My brother and his friends can’t stop gushing about the fish there and it has been their favourite place for some time now. Somehow, a visit to this eatery kept getting postponed. Finally, late one night, we decided to head to Vizhinjam.
Located close to the Vizhinjam Juma Masjid, Ustad Hotel is one among the many shacks you can find in the area. However, you won’t miss Ustad Hotel with its yellow and blue board as you’ll find this joint more crowded than others. As you approach the place, you will also get a whiff of fried fish.
