Found this gem when visiting the Dutch Palace/ Spice market in Fort Kochi. A veritable treasure house of ancient artifacts and trinkets- from full scale ceremonial longboats to more recent wooden carved statues at affordable prices. Located in an old warehouse not far from the Synagogue the building is vast but the light at the end of the tunnel is the sparkling waterside cafe, overlooking the main navigable channel from the Kerala backwaters. Clean and comfortable the snack menu had everything you would expect, service wasnt rushed but the place is somewhere nice to chill and pass time, watching the herons and water hyacinths float by. As its name states a major ingredient is ginger so try the ginger ice cream or ginger soda.- the choice seems limitless!
