Malabar Makhan - Serving Malabari specialties in Qusais
We started off with a shot of their welcome drink before we were served with the starters Tawa Fish and Chicken Skewers. The Tawa fish was fresh, spicy and flavorful and we enjoyed it much. Chicken skewers could have been better but still not that bad. We shared the feedback with the team who gladly arranged for the chef to meet us and take note of the suggestions with a serious intention to change it for the better. Hi Five for that.
In the Mains we had Kud Kachi, Beef Varattu, Kariku Prawns and Kadal Kootu. I have to remark specially on the Beef Varattu - one of the top dishes I liked from their menu and one they make remarkably well. Definitely need to try it with their super soft and tasty kerala parotta - an insane combination. As for the rest of the curries, they were good. I enjoyed the Kariku prawns which were served novely on a coconut shell. This kind of added to the taste, I should like to think.
In breads we tried Parotta, Nhei Pathiri - which i am trying for the first time and in love with, appam and puttu. Appams were as they were meant to be - soft, delicious and a great accompaniment for the curries and beef.
We finished it off with their desserts - Charandi and Makhan 2020.
I highly rate this restaurant as a place to definitely try for authentic Kannur cuisine. The partners of the restaurant are all friends from the region who got together to share their love for their regional food. And, where passion is involved , you wont be dissapointed.
Its a word.
