The 7Star Thattukada restaurant in Umm Al Hassam is the perfect place to enjoy traditional Kerala cuisine.
It offers a wide variety of nostalgic dishes that carry you back to the old days of your mother’s cooking.
The restaurant is home to numerous mouth-watering preparations of crab, tiger prawns, king prawns, tiny prawns, King Fish, sardines, mackerel, tuna, chicken, traditional beef fry and beef ularthiyathu.
It takes a lot of pride in its long list of non-vegetarian dishes offered to its perpetually hungry guests.
Some of the traditional dishes offered include puttu and kadala curry, a cylindrical steamed rice cake cooked with coconut shavings and served with black chickpeas, an extremely popular breakfast option and staple of the Indian state of Kerala.
Appam and stew is a rice pancake with a soft and thick centre and a crispy, paper-thin outside.
Although it can be eaten with any curry and multiply the taste of that dish, it is usually paired with a southern-style stew which has chunks of meat smothered in a silky, rich, dreamy coconut curry. Another favourite is idyappam, made of rice flour, water and salt formed into vermicelli strands which are then entwined together.
Also known as noolappam, this Kerala appam can also be paired with any curry and tastes great.
The Naadan beef fry, or Kerala-style beef fry, defines what God’s own country is in a lot of ways.
The paralysing flavours of the generous use of curry leaves, ginger-garlic paste and mustard leaves will make you fall in love with it.
Besides these, 7Star Thattukada offers daily breakfast, lunch, evening snacks and dinner, with a wide variety of traditional delicacies.
Guests are in for a special treat this month, with a special food festival being held daily from 5pm to 8pm with more traditional offerings from Kerala.
The restaurant’s party hall accommodates 200 people and catering is available.
It also provides outdoor catering for up to 1,000 people to make your special moments memorable.
7Star Thattukada is located in Villa 52 at the Terrace Garden Restaurant compound in Umm al Hassam.
