You know how there are a few restaurants whose names instantly spring to mind when you think of a particular cuisine? Well, Ente Keralam is one of those when it comes to food from God’s Own Country. The menu is massive and you will need a few visits to get through it all. The 'Aattin Soup' – mutton broth with shallots and curry leaves is great for a cold afternoon (or otherwise too). You could end your meal if you like on the 'Kaithachakka' or 'Pineapple Rasam'. For your starters, try the 'Chena Dry Fry', a spicy yam fry with a tempering of curry leaves. You could also have the 'Kozhukatta Masala', steamed rice dumplings in an onion tamarind masala. The 'Banana Flower Cutlets' is a signature dish. If there is one thing that characterizes Kerala cuisine, it is its ability to incorporate vegetables that usually not seen in the mainstream at all. For the meat eaters, go with the 'Erachi Ularthiyathu', a Syrian Christian styled beef fry. If you like your fish, then the 'Neimeen Polichathu', seer fish marinated and grilled in a banana leaf is great. You could also try the 'Pan Fried Chicken in a Tomato Onion Masala' or the 'Attirachi Kurumulakittathu', mutton fry with pepper. Mains could be a mix of classics like the 'Avial', or 'Kadala Curry' or 'Pachakari Stew', or something a little different like the 'Vendakka Mappas', 'Okra in Spices' and 'Coconut Milk'. There is also a great selection for meat and fish lovers – the 'Thalaserry Meen Curry', or the 'Chemmeen Roast' is brilliant. Perhaps you could try the 'Classic Kappa Meen Curry' with the tangy anchovies curry. 'Red boiled rice is also available as is the 'Thalassery Biryani'. It is the 'Ila Neer Payasam' – tender coconut payasam that rules here. Ente Keralam is also a very sought after place for 'Onam Sadyas' every year.
The food is always authentic Kerala and from different parts of Kerala, presenting cuisines of different communities of Kerala. The quantity is also just right, with second helping for those who desire it. I am referring to the sit down meals on Onam and Easter. We have always enjoyed our meals and the ambience.
It is fairly expensive. But the food is quite good. They serve delectable and authentic Kerala dishes.
Tried vegetarian food like Appam, Malbar Paratha, Curry Mix. Food was delicious. Restaurant is peaceful and quite. However Bit expensive.
great ambiance .. well designed layout with excellent service.. The reservation system could be improved upon.
We went to Ente Keralam, Ulsoor for the traditional Onadadhya on Onam day. First the pros: The two main waiters who seated us and took our orders were polite and attentive. The food layout was aesthetic (see pic). Quantities were adequate with seconds green generously. The place where we were seated was the Thai restaurant next to EK. It was neat and clean. The four types of Kerala payasams we're outstanding, delicious and memorable. The cons: The place mat carried a message from the chef, a Namboodiri who assured us that he will feed us well. But the food was a MAJOR disappointment. Except the Mathanga Erissery and Sambhar, every other item was tasteless.They even got the moru curry wrong. We ordered some fish dishes, they were fried crisp and tasteless. Besides, the price for two sadhya and two fish dishes cane to 4K. We would have got better fare in a ordinary Kerala mess that dots the city.
