'Ettukettu' (8-sided) restaurant
Holding court regally is the Ettukettu. A multi cuisine 115 seater Specialty Restaurant (A/c and non A/c). It occupies, aptly, a pride of place in the centre of the complex. And lining one corner of the Ettukettu is the well appointed bar.
Stroll leisurely down the verdant lawns to this magnificent traditional structure which formerly housed a noble family. Park yourself and choose from a choice ranging from Continental, Chinese, Muglai, North Indian or Traditional Kerala cooking. Of course, we proudly recommend you choose the latter. And rest assured, Kerala cooking is not as hot as its counterparts from neighboring states. Kerala curries usually have very little chillies and is mostly flavored with ginger, cardamom, garlic, cinnamon etc.
At the Ettukettu Restaurant, stress is on ethnic Kerala cooking. Specialty served here include Syrian Christian Duck Roast, Duck Curry, Karimeen Pollichuthu, Karimeen Mappas, soft spongy rice bread called Appams, Thamarappam speciality, Iddiappams (string hoppers).
Try out "Karimeen Pollichatu" the banana leaf-wrapped Pearl Spot Fish lavishly marinated in speciall spice mix and grilled. Kerala style curries, be it of vegetable, meat or fish, are usually generously creamed with coconut milk and often spiked with tamarind, raw mangoes or jaggery.
The first choice for breakfast dish is the "Puttu" (rice flour dough layered with grated coconut and steamed in hollow bamboo cylinders) eaten with spicy curry made of chickpeas.
Once a week, the restaurant has a cook-out where one special item is cooked right in front of the guests.
Coffee shop Anytime you feel like a nibble, make thee to the coffee shop. Hot packoras, samosas, dosas and hot steaming coffee, your favorite soft drink or a variety of ice-creams.
Outdoor barbecue How about a barbecue, in a golden sunset, under starry skies, under swaying palms on a moonlit night? Right beside the pool to the side of the Arts Centre (where the cultural performances are staged). Enjoy tasty Kebabs while you watch Gods take centre stage. Or the performance of a live band.
‘Ettukettu’ (8-sided) restaurant - a traditional Kerala mansion, once home to the most prominent family in the community, today it serves up a host of mouthwatering Indian, Chinese or Continental delicacies.
