Kuredu Island Resort & Spa Unveils New Seafood & Plant-based Menu at its Beachfront Restaurant, Beach Shack
In response to the growing, health-conscious, and ethically-minded guest profile, Kuredu Island Resort & Spa launches a new menu inspired by ‘produce-to-plate’ ethos.
As part of its culinary offerings, the vibrant Kuredu Island Resort & Spa, located in the pristine Lhaviyani Atoll, has introduced a new seafood and plant-based menu at its sea-facing restaurant, Beach Shack.
Executive Sous Chef Marek Koucky, inspired by his culinary training in Mexico and travels around the world, and his talented team, have crafted a delightful menu that stays true to ‘produce-to-plate’ ethos. It features specially selected produce of the region, locally sourced seafood, and a daily harvest from Kuredu’s expansive greenhouse and organic garden, bursting with fresh vegetables, fragrant herbs, and aromatic spices.
The new à la carte menu offers a flavourful selection of seafood delights, with signature dishes including Jumbo Crab with spiced bisque, chicken wing, charred pineapple, and tapioca cracker and Lobster Medallions with young coconut, red curry, and pearl barley risotto.
Health-conscious and ethically-minded guests can enjoy tucking into a luscious array of inventive vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free selections. Chef’s recommendations include Pumpkin Veloute served with mushrooms, smoked almonds, and truffle oil and Grilled Artichokes with marinated artichoke hearts, asparagus, and mustard seeds. All the plates are visually appetising, delicious, and elevated with a locally inspired twist.
Complementing the refined dining experience are freshly-baked bread with special ‘seaweed’ butter, served before dinner service begins and a hand-picked selection of premium wines from Kuredu’s very own wine cellar.
Sweet treats include Chocolate Rocky Road, Vegan Coconut Panna Cotta, and a Selection of Sorbets.
Tasting menus are also on offer to provide diners with the opportunity to sample six carefully selected courses from the new seafood & vegan menu.
Guests are invited to dine healthily and organically, whether sea-facing or on the beach under the stars and explore the exquisite flavours of the Maldives and the Indian Ocean.
Beach Shack is available for dinner, on request with 24 hours prior notice. To learn more, please visit: Beach Shack Restaurant at Kuredu
