Cuisine

 

Kozhikode offers a variety of South Indian, North Indian, European, Chinese, Arab, Gujarati and Jain food. It also has a street food culture, though small and confined to the outskirts. The European and Arab trade influences, from the importance of Kozhikode as a port to east Africa and the Mideast, has influenced the culinary culture of Kozhikode.

'Halwa', a sweet meat so called by British, made out of flour and sugar, is a sought after savoury in Kozhikode.

However, a new generation of Kozhikode people are more inclined towards Chinese and American food culture. Chinese food is the most popular and loved among locals. Vegetarianism is increasing as a new trend.
