Kerala cuisine @ Salkara, Qusais

Salkara was my quintessential Kerala food joint before Calicut Paragon opened their Nahda branch. The routine was simple… Shop in Lulus & then have Kerala Meals in Salkara.

Ambiance: It is an open seating area shared with Aryaas alongside. Post renovation, the seating area has expanded even more. But the waiting time on weekends remains the same 😦

Service: This is a bustling restaurant with waiters flying around serving customer after customer. Still manage to serve you in time & ensure you are full before you get up.

Food:

Fish/ Prawns Mango Curry: Tangy Curry with pieces of raw mango curry. My favorite from this restaurant.

Fish Polichatu: The leaf wrapped fried fish is another kerala specialty. They do it well, although they fry the fish first put fried masala over it and then wrap in banana leaf. Would prefer the fish inside to be a bit more moist.

Beef Dry fry: Roasted cubes of beef tossed in kerala spices & topped with coconut flakes. Good start to any meal & robust accompaniment to any drink.

Crab Dry Fry/ Fish Fry: A good fillet of fish fried & topped with some fried coconut Or go in for the Crab if you are up for a fight.

Chicken Malabar Curry:  Chicken pieces in a coconut milk based curry that goes very well with the Kerala Parotas.

Chicken/ Mutton Biryani: One of the better ones in town & the side accompaniments add in sour & spicy flavors to it.

All these can be barely accompaniments to the ever fantastic Meals that they serve. Right from the hot red root water to the Motta Rice to the chutney on the side to the Payasam at the end… This is truly amazing.

The Tender Coconut pudding is subtly flavored with coconut and can help appease your taste buds after a fiery meal.

Pricing: Reasonable pricing. A meal for 2 would be around 70 – 80 Dhs.

Final Verdict: Visit it for a true Kerala meal experience & come out content ( if you manage to get up from your chair)
