Hi !!!. This is my first ever restaurant review even though I had posted some mini reviews on my social media platforms.
I and my husband, are hardcore fans of Indian cuisine, particularly Malabari cuisine (In UAE, Keralites are known as Malabaris). The most renowned Malabari food is the Malabari biryani. We have almost tried a wide range of biryani and, still drool at it.
Thakkaram is a new restaurant opened at Abu Shagara, Sharjah. Thakkaram is a marriage ceremony, celebrated by Muslims in the Malabar region of Kerala, where the bride and the bridegroom are treated to delicious foods. As the name implies, Thakkaram restaurant serves wide varieties of Kerala cuisines and, of course, the biryani.
We were greeted at the entrance, by a luvly lady who dressed up in a Malabari Muslim outfit and followed by a traditional truck.
The ambience and, the interior decor at Thakkaram were splendid. They have got enough space to accommodate families, who have more members and, there were seats for couples.
We had already planned what we would be trying from Thakkaram. We already tasted chicken, mutton, fish and meat biryanis and, the fish biryani is my favourite. Hence we decided to try a new kind of biryani called Kaada biryani.
‘Kaada’ means quail bird in Malayalam and, there is a phrase called “eating one quail is equal to eating 1000 chickens” because of its nutritional values.
Like I said above, even though we had tried several Malabari biryanis from different places in the UAE, we had never got to taste the exact Malabari biryani. To our surprise, the Kaada biryani from Thakkaram was even better than the actual Malabari biryani. For your information, the Malabari biryani was served with papad, yogurt salad and, Achar.
The Kaada biryani was delicious. I’m looking forward to tasting more dishes from Thakkaram and hope you will get to read more posts about Thakkaram foods.
