With its new ranking of the "Top 150 Most Legendary Restaurants in the World," Taste Atlas, an online travel guide that emphasises immersive experiences, promises diners a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a truly unforgettable culinary journey. The latest guide has declared certain food joints as destinations in their own right, on par with the most famous museums, galleries, and monuments in the world. These places are not just for grabbing a quick bite, but offer a unique experience that is sure to satisfy your taste buds. 

Vienna's Figlmüller restaurant has been named the most legendary restaurant globally with its signature dish, the Schnitzel Wiener Art. Katz's Delicatessen in New York City and Warung Mak Beng in Sanur, Indonesia have secured the second and third positions respectively, following the top-ranked restaurant on the list. The Seven Indian restaurants have recently been named among the 150 most legendary restaurants in the world, much to the excitement of food lovers across the country. The world-renowned Paragon restaurant in Kozhikode has made it to the top 11 legendary restaurants across the globe. The restaurant's most iconic dish, biryani, has been the talk of the town. 

If you go by the guide, it explains, “Paragon in Kozhikode, Kerala, is an emblem of the region’s rich gastronomic history, celebrated for its mastery of traditional Malabar cuisine. The dish that reigns supreme is the biryani, a blend of rice, meat, and spices, steeped in age-old traditions and prepared with locally sourced ingredients.”  

The Paragon Restaurant first opened its doors in 1939 and has since become famous for its enduring allure. Centrally located in Kozhikode, close to the train station, it is where you'll get the best Malabari cuisine. Every day at lunch and dinner, you can expect to see a large crowd waiting anxiously to get inside and try the restaurant's delicious food. The menu features dishes from throughout the world, including Indian, Chinese, and seafood recipes. Vegetarian dishes here are as popular as their meat-based counterparts in Malabari cuisine, which is quite an accomplishment. The staff is prepared to efficiently and respectfully deal with the high volume of consumers during peak times. There is nothing fancy about the restaurant's design, but the food more than makes up for the lack of flair. The restaurant is known for providing an appealing ambiance that is the ideal complement to the careful preparation of food. The restaurant takes great delight in a dining experience that reflects its environment by presenting regional ingredients and using time-honored preparation techniques. Mango fish curry, chicken biryani, and the vegetarian alternatives (Kerala appam, veggies in coconut milk, etc.) are just a few of the delicacies that you really must taste here. Customers who would rather not wait in queue at the eatery can take advantage of the parcel services offered.
