Adaminde (Adaminte) Chayakada, meaning Adam's Teashop, in Kozhikode is a lively eatery to spend an evening with your loved ones.
A medley of colourful décor on sundry themes lends the cosy restaurant a vibrant hue. Whether it is the autorickshaw at the entrance or the wide collection of antique items inside, Adam's offers a lively ambience.
The food, too, is presented in unique ways. They have kunjikozhi on a skewer and beef roast inside an 'istri petti' or vintage iron box! Another popular item is tower parotta which is topped with cheese gratings that are then melted at your table with a crème brulee torch.
Biryani takeaway combos that have been introduced have become an instant hit.
The chayakada, which was born out of a loving grandson's inherited passion for food, stands true to its name with a surprisingly wide variety of tea, kahwa, coffee, and Kozhikode's favourite Sulaimani (spiced tea with lemon).
Traditional Malabari snacks like chattipathiri, kaya pola, etc are served to go with tea.
Adaminde Chayakada is centrally located on Kozhikode's Beach Road and is usually crowded in the evenings with beach visitors lining up before the tea stall.
