    Kovai Spice

    Kovai Spice might have risen back from the ashes, but now they are back with a bigger menu. Not only that, they have also included some soups and salads for more diversity. Found under the South Indian cuisine, do not forget to try the Prawn 65. The name might raise a few questions but you will be given a plate with some prawns that are already deep-fried in masala batter. Not only are they crispy, you are able to consume the entire prawn, inclusive of its shell, too!

    Tips

    Eat it while it is freshly fried and still warm.

    Things to expect

    They serve beers as well by the can.

    Over the years, Kanna Curry house at Section 17 has been very popular for its banana leaf rice. Occupying 2 large shop lots, Kanna Curry House can fill more than several hundred people at a time. Fortunately, the service itself is rather prompt and attentive, though they may be a little too persuasive on their side orders of mutton or fish. But overall, the dishes have a decent depth of flavour and a good use of spice.
