Indian CRUISE SHIP Food Tour (M.V. Kavaratti Bound for Lakshadweep) #RockEats


When I do food videos here in India, I always take you guys somewhere unique in somewhere special. And oh my God, look at where we are today. I am taking you to eat on a cruise ship in the middle of the Indian Ocean. And we’re docked just outside Minicoy Island, which is in Lakshadweep about 400 kilometers off the coast of Kerala. This is India’s smallest Union territory. So let’s eat breakfast and start with that, then we’ll go to Minicoy and we’ll try their food. We’ll have lunch there and we’ll come back and we’ll eat dinner here on the ship. This is my room. It is a bunk bed that I’m sharing with with another guy on the ship here and I’ll take you guys on a full ship tour in another video, but let’s start with breakfast. Breakfast on this Indian cruise ship is absolutely pathetic. It sucks. So for breakfast. We usually have ourself Indian breakfast. We’ll have idli, uttapam and then there will always be, these really bad chutneys, like they are so so watery the chutneys here. They’re not those kind of thick chutney as you get in Indian restaurants on the mainland. They are the super watery. They’re more like a soup. So it’s not actually nice to eat idli and uttapam with these terrible, terrible chutneys. Then you always have bread, jam, eggs and tea and and juice as well. Cornflakes and milk is available too, but it’s just bad again. And yeah, the food on this cruise ship for breakfast is just terrible. Dinner and lunch so much better. So we’re starting off with the worst right now and actually something very interesting happened at breakfast the other day. So on this cruise ship vegetarians and meat eaters are separated into two sides of the room and one of the meat eaters took his food across to the vegetarian side to sit with his friend. And this Jain guy, he stood up and starts yelling at this guy. For you know breaking the boundary coming in to the vegetarian side and you know the purifying it that’s the right word. You know some of these vegetarians are extremely pedantic about, about meat-eaters not eating and near them. It could have done it a lot nicer though, right? He could have just walked up behind the guys there . Please sir, could you not eat here with with the vegetarians. Would you go back over there, you know getting for whatever his reasons are for his religion, you know. But in under that he caused a big fuss in front of everybody. Poor other guys are specifically his friends, right. So anyway, that’s what it’s like here on the ship. Anyway, let’s get out to Minicoy Island now and let’s eat some Lakshadweep food. We’ve reached this incredible beach here at Minicoy. This is the most beautiful lagoon that I have ever seen in my life. And I’ve been to Fiji and been to Andaman and Nicobar Islands, into some pretty tropical places. But this is the largest lagoon in Lakshadweep and it’s like waist level the entire way around. This Lagoon basically goes for nearly the entire living kilometer straight to this island. It’s just a perfect place for swimming. We just ate lunch. It was much, much better than breakfast. So we had, chicken curry. Chicken curry is exactly like any other Indian chicken curry. It’s actually the same. We had tuna fish and there’s something I haven’t had much here in India. And it was, they had to go out and buy a 20 kg tuna bluefin tuna just to feed everybody here and they just fried it with masala, with spice. It’s pretty typical in India. They don’t enjoy the flavor of the fish itself. They cover it in spices, which I find a bit of a shame because I just love the natural flavor of fish, maybe or some lemon. Next up we had chole and oh my god. If there’s chole there I am freaking super happy. So chole, rice eat that with rody It was good, wasn’t quite you know Punjabi chole, but it was just a just a chole masala. Good enough then on the vegetarian side. They had few more things. They had like a mixed veg curry. They had a kind of like a cabbage kind of stew as well. But yeah, if you’re here in Lakshadweep you should be eating the meat right? They caught that tuna locally. They grew the chickens locally and it’s cool like a jungly chicken leg. It comes from somebody’s literally somebody’s house here and it just tastes different to the chicken we get which are raised on the mainland under quite bad conditions. The chickens here are more free-range. They’re more juicy and they just taste so much better in a curry. There’s finally some sweet, was kheer. Tiny little bit of sweet and you don’t get try here for free. You got to pay 10 rupees, a cup. I don’t know why that is they should just keep it on tap. This is India. We need tea. That was lunch, that was good. It wasn’t Lakshadweep cuisine I would say. It’s more to keep their cruise ship passengers happy. So it’s basically just North Indian cuisine. Let’s go back to the ship now. I’m gonna go for the island actually. But we’ll go back to the ship and let’s see what they serve up for dinner. And of course, I’ll take you on a trip around this island and everywhere in Lakshadweep in other videos. So go and check out that playlist. Now the dinners over it’s pitch black here on the seven seas. You can see so dinner is that 8 p.m. Breakfast is 7 p.m. And lunch is around 1 o’clock. And in dinner we had potato, lady finger, we had matar paneer. We had chicken curry, like a satay chicken curry. We had fruit. There was a sweet corn soup and roti, and honestly, it was so bad. They have to make every single dish bland as hell for everybody on board. So everybody can eat it. So most people end up hating the food or not enjoying it because there’s no chili in it, there’s barely any onion, if there is any onion and they keep the spices to a bare minimum. So, there’s no flavour in any of those curries. Potato, lady finger, the matar paneer or the chicken curry. It was all, it tastes like you’re just eating these things with a kind of a watered-down curry sauce. It’s really, really bad. And you know, the problem is you have so many people to keep happy and a lot of religions here. They don’t allow people to eat things like chili or onions. So they keep these things out of the food and yeah, it just destroys it. On land the food was much, much better. So even on the non-veg side and the veg side they’re making these dietary constraints on the food for absolutely everybody and they won’t even put salt in some of the dishes you have to add in soak yourself. Like I ate lentil there was absolutely no salt in it at all. Maybe this was missing salt. Anyway That’s what cruise ship food is like it. That’s what food is here like on any kind of group travel where everybody’s eating. The same, the same food it kind of sucks.

  1. किस-किस को यह बंदा peaudipie जैसा लगता है लाइक करें

  2. Indians use to eat Tomato sauce with so many things. I personally don't like it. But that's why they serve this in a meal where you've something like Samosa or Bread.

  3. It s the stupid truth, they are ok with meat-eating farmers growing their so called purified veg foods….even he is not aware of the plates have been interchanged. Faith is good but to some extend ..it should help ones inner self.

  4. Thank you Karl for showing us around this beautiful place it's stunning. I must admit the breakfast doesn't look nice, hope you had a good time Karl.

  6. lakshadweep is avery difficult place to come still you somehow reached there you are a true indian foriegner traveller

  7. Minicoy, home of the Mahls. Politically India but culturally the Maldives. Minicoy isn't politically a part of the Maldives because centuries ago the island was devastated by a cyclone. The islanders turned to the king in Male for help to no avail. They turned to the Malabar coast for help with success. The king of Kannur helped them rebuild their island

  8. Just casually do a little dance on the beach. love it bro!
    Thanks for sharing your thoughts on all the cuisine dishes
    This part of india I had no idea existed, it is paradise.

  9. லக்சத்தீவு மிக அழகான பகுதிகளில் ஒன்று… அதை சிறப்பாக அழகாக பார்வையாளர்களுக்கு காட்டிய karl Rock க்கு… நன்றி..🇮🇳. Jaihind..

  10. If u have time try to go and watch India vs West Indies cricket match on dec 8(coming Sunday) at Greenfield stadium Trivandrum, Kerala…

  11. Hey Karl ! ..a fan of urs…actually there is a ques in my mind from a very long time, answer it if possible….
    Travellers like u ,or other solo world travellers, how do u make money while travelling? I mean , u almost travel every month or week , after spending all ur money , how do u manage?..

  12. I'm still blown away that you wipe your ass with your fingers. It's 2019 mate. Don't act like a savage when you're civilized. People will always think twice when shaking your hand!

  13. Looking at the ship it seems that it was just laying somewhere doing nothing and some people comeup with the idea to monitize this piece of junk.

  14. jain logo ki gand me bhot khujli hoti hai dusre non veg khate toh kyu apne gand marane aate bc khud kao na bina pyaz lasun ka khaana.

  15. Whereever you go karl ask for gaoti chicken its almost twice the price but that is what real chicken(what you may call free range) is and it takes almost 3 times the time to mature for harvest. Maharashtra and goa gaoti/desi chicken is easy to obtain their eggs are amazing aswell.

  16. 7:09 WOW i never knew there were religions that prohibit chilli and onions. People are truly creative 😂😂😂🍻

  17. I’m early I hope to go to India one day and Carl btw I’m from Australia 🇦🇺 with all the bushfires thanks New Zealand 🇳🇿 for sending firefighters to help

  18. Non vegetarian should have known because it is India…this non vegetarian guy should have been killed on the spot so that others can learn and also if some meat eater want to eat some fresh meat ,his dead body should be given to them….

  19. if veg-people come near to my table, kitchen room or near to me ill do the same things…ive experience the same things before…ill angry to them, ill scold, ill shout to them and they will only understand….this veg people dont understand good manner language, they only understand rude language so we need to teach them in the language they can understand….

  20. 03:09 the dance we want to see more like that…😄😄😄😄… I really enjoyed that dance…I stopped rewind it and saw 3-4 times…

  21. Beautiful place! The color and clarity of that water are breathtaking! Also, just as a side note, what are you filming with lately? I know you had a Panasonic before but had talked about upgrading to something else (Canon?) due to the cost of repairing the Lumix.
    Keep up the awesome work!
