Dinner in the House boat: Elige tu pescado - Choose your fish
Normally you have all meals included in the boat house, but if you want to give yourself "a luxury," the captain takes you to a "fish shop " or a fisherman with a rowing boat approaches offering prawns, tiger prawns,"fresh" fish (not familiar for us) , but you choose what you like and in the evening the cook prepares it for you
Normalmente tienes todas las comidas incluidas en la casa barco , pero por si quieres darte "un lujo" el capitán te lleva a una"pescadería" o se acerca un pescador con su barca de remos ofreciéndote gambas, gambas tigre, pescado "fresco" de formas y clases que no nos eran familiares lo eliges y por la noche lo prepara el cocinero
Backwaters Tour - lunch: Served on a banana leaf
We stopped for lunch, on our Backwaters Tour, at a very simple looking place where we were served veg curry, rice, samosa and fish on a banana leaf. There was an palm oil factory nearby which we had a quick look around before we set off again.
On my houseboat: Seafood
With an overnight stay on the houseboat and a customised kitchen, had all the 3 meals of the day on the boat, didnt venture out in any of the restro's in town, and with a chef on call 24/7, I jus had exactly what I wanted.
Favorite Dish: Pearl spot fish much recommended, deep fried and just a single central bone or the spine. There is a technique the way you can eat this fish without disturbing the spine, well the chef will let you know when you eat it the next time you are in Alappuzha!!

Kream Korner: Disappointing
As this restaurant is mentioned in the South India Lonely Planet, I thought of giving it a try. I went there fro breakfast (about 10h00am).
The waiter was very friendly and helpful, but unfortunately the food did not arrive after waiting for 30 - 40 minutes. There were no other customers at that stage, and the order was simple (tea, toast, omelette).
I cannot recommend this restaurant.
