Why to visit Sweet Meat Street

The streets are crowded with stores selling a wide variety of goods, from the well-known candies and banana chips to jewellery and Ayurvedic medicines. This is a unique shopping experience because there are rows of stores on either side of the winding street that sell cheap goods such as toys, hair salons, juice bars, fragrances, textiles, candies, and confectionery.

The word "Halwa," a sweet, is supposed to have inspired the name "Sweet Meat Street." It is a type of delicacy with a soft, rubbery texture, and it has been a local favourite for a very long time. Due to the texture of the delicacies, European traders began to refer to them as "sweetmeat," and the neighbourhood began to be known as Sweet Meat Street, or SM Street as it is now.

It's a colourful adventure to stroll through the lanes of SM Street in the evenings and at night. Huge slabs of the vibrant Kozhikodan Halwa and other mouthwatering treats are showcased at the sweet shops. The halwa is the most popular sweet among both locals and tourists. The sweet comes in a wide variety of flavours.

Despite the city's fast evolution, the buildings on the street still contain some of its older, often more than a hundred-year-old, architecture.
