Brunton’s Boatyard, the iconic hotel on the waterfront at Fort Kochi, is made up of all the good things that the Raj left behind.As you walk up the stairs to the History Restaurant (as this part of the Boatyard is called) you actually feel you are in a timber-roofed ship sailing out to sea. The diners are made up of people who could be the exact replicas of those downstairs. Except, of course, they have brought their ancient wives with them and seem to be wearing modern clothes.
At the History Restaurant you don’t just experience the past, you have it served on a plate. The chhota peg consists of a shot glass of ginger wine. You take small sips, while deciding whether to go Anglo-Indian, Syrian, Jewish, Dutch, Portuguese or Fish Moillee, plain and simple Kochi style.
When we step outside, the night seems spangled with flying fish. A street vendor is tossing fluorescent balls of coloured lights into the air and watching them trace patterns in the velvety darkness of a Kerala sky.
