People of Kottayam are extremely fond of their food and thus you will find restaurants and cafes almost everywhere in the town. However, make sure you stick to the traditional Kerala food which is quite delicious. South Indian vegetarian food is also available almost everywhere is obviously lip smacking. However, try and avoid North Indian, Chinese or Continental food as it may not favor your taste buds. Also if you religion oriented make sure you specify the non-vegetarian dish you order as beef is quite commonly prevalent in Kottayam.
