We sat down to have lunch at a restaurant in Fort Cochin. Naturally, being on the coast in Kerala, we ordered many different fish dishes. The girls ordered their sweet lassis. Sammy and Holger ordered lemon sodas. I asked the waiter if they had cold coffee.
No. Would you like a Kingfisher beer Sir?
I did not see beer on the menu and was a bit surprised. Kingfisher is a common domestic beer here in India.
Sure, I’ll take a Kingfisher.
A short while later, our drinks were served. Everyone got a glass with their drink, except me. I got a mug and a stoneware teapot. I was a bit puzzled, until Holger pointed out that the teapot contained beer. Later, when we got the bill, there was no mention of a beer. There was an interesting entry however.
Tip. RS 125
A cold tip on a hot day really hits the spot.
It seems that the restaurant did not have a liquor license. I guess this is how they skirted around it.
