Booze lovers, while you’ve guzzled down beer, wine, tequila, vodka, whiskey, rum and more, have you ever tried the good ol’ toddy? This is a traditional mild alcoholic beverage that’s produced from the sap of coconut, palmyra and wild date palm. Widely available across coastal districts, toddy is sweet in taste and is known to have physicochemical properties that enhance one’s overall health. Though toddy is widely available there has been a lack of fine-dining ambience to savour it. Well, not anymore! Mangalore is now home to the Toddy House, a toddy lounge and AC restaurant that serves refreshing varieties of traditional toddy and delicious seafood in a family-friendly atmosphere.
