Crisol Restaurant and Lounge

Crisol is a fusion of American, Mexican and Spanish cuisine. I was very curious about the meaning behind the name and I was said Crisol means Melting Pot in Spanish! They’re located in Sharjah the University City Area. If you don’t know about this area then you’re surely missing on a lot of good food around this area, including Crisol! πŸ˜€

Beverage – Strawberry Mojito –

I’m sure by now you guys are aware about how much I love myself a good Mojito and I’m on a mission to find the best Mojito in town! So, I went for their Strawberry Mojito, just letting you know, they’ve HUGE PORTIONS for everything. So, we get our tall glasses of Mojito, very refreshing but the drink had a little weird after taste probably because of the excessive use of the ginger ale which overpowered the whole drink.

IMG_0916Strawberry Mojito

Salad – Watermelon Salad –

I haven’t had a watermelon in a salad and this was quite different from all salads I have had before. The salad had a surprise and that was the fried goat cheese!! OMG!! What even?? The goat cheese and watermelon with rocket leaves went so well with drizzled balsamic and few sesame seeds! DELICIOUS!! Must Try!

IMG_4453Watermelon Salad with fried goat cheese

Appetizers – Matchcstick Fries –

They were really sweet to make one of their appetizers veg. Matchstick fries were very thin fries served in a big jar with lots of cheese and their secret sauce around the whole jar topped with crushed chettos. It was my absolute favorite dish as everything went so well with each other, none of the toppings overpowered the dish! An Absolute MUST TRY!

Mains – Mushroom Farfalle (Mushroom Pasta) –

As there were no veg options in their set menu, they let us order anything on their menu, the manager help us choose the Mushroom Farfalle. They were mushroom pasta in excellent made creamy alfredo sauce, loved it!

IMG_4459Mushroom Farefalle

No food journey is complete without dessert and they served us with one of their best desserts and they surely were to die for!

Desserts – 1 – CRISOL HIT –

CRISOL HIT is basically a three layered dessert which has ice cream on the very bottom, in the middle is their crunchy brownie and on the top is their chocolate which has hidden ice cream inside. They pour hot chocolate sauce on the top layer and hit the top chocolate and the melted ice cream oozes out! A messy but delicious dessert. A Must Try.

IMG_4477(Left – Right – Crisol Hit , Lotus Pancake and Vanilla Milk Cake)

2 – Lotus Pancake –

As I told you above their portions are huge and so were their desserts, love that! The lotus pancake looked crazy good, but after the 1st pancake was eaten the below ones were a little dry, so I would suggest extra sauce on the side maybe? Otherwise it was a hit!

IMG_4480Lotus Pancake

3- Vanilla Milk Cake –

WHAT HEAVEN!! I have found a new love of Milk Cakes and it’s getting uncontrollable πŸ˜› These cakes are not too sweet and so so fluffy because of the milk around the cake! I LOVE THEM and also a Must Try!

Ambience –

Very quiet and peaceful, I would sit here the whole day and wouldn’t get bored of anything! The interior is so beautiful and funky, my favorite spot was their washroom area! The whole place is so so Instagram-able!

IMG_4474Interiors

Service –

Quick service, all the food was served in minutes right after ordering! Also very friendly and helpful staff.

On the Pocket –

I would say pretty reasonable for the huge portions they serve. πŸ˜€

Overall –

It was a great experience, would surely go back for their Matchstick fries and their crazy good desserts! Easy to a find parking, kid friendly and they got wifi too. So, it’s a win from all the sides! πŸ˜€

Broccoli Pizza & Pasta

I have always passed by Broccoli Pizza & Pasta and never tried their food, how crazy is that? I recently visited their newly opened branch at Jumeriah 3.

IMG_4209Broccoli Pizza and Pasta – Jumeirah 3

Broccoli Pizza and Pasta serves freshly made pizza, pasta, soups, and a lot more, you can also customize your own pasta and pizza.

Let’s see what we ordered, shall we? πŸ˜€

Maybe I don’t need the pizza, maybe the pizza needs me! πŸ€”πŸ˜πŸ• . . . . . The other day I was dinning at @broccolipizzaandpasta with @eatwithaditi , we ordered some broccoli soup, chicken caesar salad, half n half pizza, veg lasagne and Alfredo Sauce Pasta! Out of all, my 3 favourites were the Alfredo Sauce Pasta, Veg Pizza and Broccoli soup! Dint like the veg lasagne as it only had spinach! But Other than that, everything was so tasty! Surely going to visit them for their pasta!😍😁 . . . . . Review should be up next week on my blog and @zomatouae πŸ“πŸ˜ . . . . . #BroccoliPizzaandpastajumeriah3 #newbranch #pastaandpizza #pizzalover #halfnhalfpizza #broccolisoup #salad #foodie #dubai #jumeirah3 #uae #dubaifoodie #dubaifoodiebybirth #dubaifoodblogger #uaefoodblogger #foodblogger #vegetairanblogger #f52grams #food52grams #coldturkeydxb #dubairestaurants #foodindubai #eatoutdxb #zomato #zomatouae #flatlay #foodporn #okaybyeee

Starters –

Broccoli Soup – One of the BEST broccoli soup I have ever had, literallyy!!! Got it right of their soup pot, steaming hot and tasting absolutely out of the world! Very creamy and thick with bits of broccoli and very flavorful! Their soups are always served with garlic bread, the bread was alright, but the soup was really good. A Must Try!

IMG_4191Broccoli Soup

Mains –Β 

Pizza – Half n Half – Vegetable and BBQ Chicken Pizza

Vegetable Pizza – I ain’t kidding you when I’m telling that this pizza was way better than what I have been eating at other pizza joints! Properly cooked, not too hard from the bottom, enough vegetables and cheese, and topped with good amount of seasoning which made everything taste even better! Tasted more like home made, that’s what anybody would like! A Must Try! πŸ˜€

IMG_4193Half n Half Pizza

Pasta –

Fettuccine Pasta in Alfredo Sauce – You can customize your own pasta, you can choose what pasta you would like, your choice of sauce and vegetables/protein you would prefer for your pasta.

IMG_4169You can choose your own pasta

I NEVER order for pasta when I go out, because they always taste so bland. But, broccoli pizza and pasta, totally changed my mind on that. My pasta was so tasty and flavorful, the vegetables were properly cooked, and my pasta was saucy and not dry at all! A Must Try!

IMG_4215Fettuccine Pasta in Alfredo Sauce

Veg Lasagna I wanted to try their veg lasagna, so went for that. It was a FAIL!! Would not advice anybody to try that, until and unless you’re Popeye the sailor man πŸ˜› Haha. The veg lasagna had way too much of spinach or should I say had ONLY spinach, a little bit of cheese and pizza sauce. Um no, dint like it at all. They should work on their veg lasagna.

IMG_4204Veg Lasagna

Drinks – Water, Soft Drinks and Fresh Orange Juice.

IMG_0345Fresh Orange Juice

Service – Fast service, attentive and friendly staff.

On the Pocket – I would say pocket friendly, they’ve combos you can have them and save some money πŸ˜€

Ambience – It’s a small branch, but with good ambience and comfy seating.

IMG_4214

Overall – I would surely go back to Broccoli Pizza and Pasta for my top 3 Must Try, that would be the Broccoli Soup, Alfredo Pasta and Vegetable Pizza, these were a hit for me. They don’t have any desserts, would be great if they could add some desserts, as no meal is over without anything sweet! πŸ˜€

Location – Opposite Medcare Center, Jumeriah 3

Nurai is a Lebanese cuisine restaurant and is located in Business Bay with a beautiful view of Burj Khalifa and with an outdoor and indoor seating! The interiors are so stunning, I absolutely loved it!

IMG_0487Nurai Cafe and Restaurant

I went along with a friend of mine who was in town for few days and we thought of catching up at Nurai and surely they dint disappoint us with anything, everything from food to the service to the view everything was on point. let me tell you more about everything πŸ˜€

What we ordered

IMG_4269Flatlay of our order

Drinks –

Strawberry Mojito – You all know how much I love my Mojito’s!! The mojito at Nurai was a bit different as they had topped it with some whipped cream, but that actually tasted good, at 1st I thought I wouldn’t like it, but I ended up liking it a lot! πŸ˜€

IMG_4274Strawberry Mojito

Aruba – My friend found a drink on her name and she went for the same and loved it! πŸ˜€

IMG_4283Aruba

From the oven

Halloumi Manakesh – Rightly cooked for me means not too soft on the base and not too hard, and they totally made the way I like it. πŸ˜€

IMG_4272Halloumi Manakesh

Cold Mezza

Hammus – I LOVED THE HUMMUS!! SO so creamy and so flavorful, one of the best hummus I have had in a very long time! surely a Must Try!

IMG_4277Hummus

Fattouch – I have recently have fallen in love with fattouch and thought of trying it at Nurai and it wasn’t a bad idea at all! Fresh crunchy salad with rolled up kaboos pieces, with a drizzle of balsamic and olive oil, loved it! Must Try!

IMG_4263.JPGFattouch

Hot Mezza

Shish Tawouk – (Non Veg) No, I dint eat it, my friend had it she told me this one of the best shish tawouk she has eaten, very flavorful and tasty, which was accompanied with some garlic sauce, pickles and crunchy fries. A Must Try for my non veg friends! πŸ˜€

IMG_4256Shish Tawouk

Appetizers –

Mexican Nachos – They got a little cold by the time we started having them, so the cheese was all stuck over the the chips. I’m sure it would taste way better warm. Nachos was served with some Guacamole and Sour Cream on the side.

IMG_4258Mexican Nachos

Burger –

Mozzarella Burger – OMG! This burger was so so good!! I was totally full by the time I reached the burger but even after it just being cheese, some tasty sauces and pickles this burger was my favorite and the burger bun was also so soft and good! The burger was accompanied by some fresh coleslaw salad and fries. It’s on my Must Try charts! πŸ˜€

IMG_4278Mozzarella Burger

Pizza – We had a half n half pizza

Vegetarian Pizza and Pepperoni Pizza – Thin crust pizza with a total home made flavour, the pizza at Nurai are one of the most ordered food! πŸ˜€ Half n half is a good idea when you can’t finish one whole pizza by yourself so you can share it also and you can have the half pizza by yourself too. πŸ˜€ A Must Try!

IMG_4271Half n Half Pizza (Vegetarian and Pepperoni Pizza)

Desserts –

No food journey ends without some good desserts, and even if you’re full to the bream you’ll always have space of desserts, no doubt! πŸ˜€

Profiteroles with Ice cream – This was my very 1st time trying profiteroles, very fluffy roles filled with ice cream and topped with chocolate sauce, very delicious. This dish is also comes under their one of their best dishes!

Chocolate Fondant Cake with Ice Cream – You can never go wrong with chocolate fondant cake, so fluffy from the outside and very gooey chocolaty from the inside and tastes like heaven! Aahh would love some right now! πŸ˜€ A Must Try!

Service – Quick service even after having a lot of customers, very friendly staff too!

Ambience – Beautiful ambience with a lovely view. πŸ˜€

IMG_4284Lovely interiors

Overall – A great afternoon spent with good friend, great food and beautiful view. Oh wait, did I tell you about the view was so beautiful?

Baydar – Trip to Lebanon :D

Last week I was invited for a tasting at Baydar. They’re located in Barsha Mall, facing right in front of Barsha Pond Park.
IMG_9938

They have the best view! If you don’t know what to do for your New Years Eve, go to Baydar, you’ll get to see the fireworks perfectly!! It’s literally the best location πŸ˜€ Oh btw, you can see Burj Al Arab and Burj Khalifa from Baydar, that’s like icing on the cake πŸ˜€ I could go on and on about the view, haha πŸ˜›

IMG_4155

Let’s talk about the food, shall we πŸ˜€

I went a little over board with my ordering, but I promise you everything was good or may be wasn’t? Keep reading about my experience at Baydar!

Cold Mezze –

Hummus – I was craving for some hummus from a very longtime and there you go, ordered for some. Very fresh, creamy and goes very well with their hot breads (Kaboos)

IMG_4137Hummus (18dhs)

Moutabal – Is made of eggplants, I personally don’t like eggplants but I really like Moutabal a lot (I’m a lil weird, haha :P) and this Moutabal was amazing, it had the smokey taste of eggplant but wasn’t overpowering the dish equally, have it with their hot bread, will even taste better. πŸ˜€ A Must Try!

IMG_4139Moutabal (18dhs)

Fatouch – Lately I’ve been loving fatouch. Fatouch is a salad which consists of seasoned and roasted kaboos (Arabic flat bread) veggies like capsicum, tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber. The salad is tossed with some sumac powder and balsamic, finally mixed with pomegranate which adds a whole lot of sweet and sour taste to the dish! A Must Try!

IMG_4132Fatouch (20dhs)

Hot Mezze –

Kibbeh stuffed with Olives – Umm, never tried a kibbeh before because you don’t get a veg version anywhere and this was my very first time trying a kibbeh, aah liked it, but dint like it also. 50-50 thoughts on that.

IMG_4134.JPGKibbeh stuffed with Olives (18dhs)

Sandwich

Falafel Sandwich – You guys know I’m made about falafel sandwiches and this was a very good one! the falafel inside was very crispy from the out and soft from the inside, very good! The sandwich had tahini sauce, lots of pickles and few greens! Absolutely loved it!

IMG_4152Falafel Sandwich (8dhs)

Cold Beverages –

Fruit Cocktail – At first I thought this must be a fruit cocktail juice, and when it came it was equal to two freaking dishes, haha! damn heavy but equally healthy too, the cocktail had a lot of fruits like strawberry, apple, kiwi, etc topped with some ice cream I reckon! Oh so good πŸ˜€

Fruit Cocktail (25dhs)

Manakish –

Zataar and Cheese – All their kaboos and manakish dough is made at their kitchens fresh! The manakish was good, I don’t like a lot of zataar on my manakish and this was the rightly made for me as it the zataar was surely not too heavy on the cheese!

IMG_4146Zataar and Cheese Manakish (14dhs)

Cheese Harra – At the first I had double thoughts about the dish but as I kept eating it, the dish grew on me and actually loved it! So, cheese harra is made of feta cheese, it’s a little on the spice side as they add red chili to the feta cheese with some finely chopped tomatoes, onions and capsicum! You should surely try it. A Must Try!

IMG_4148Cheese Harra (12dhs)

Dessert –

Cheese Konafa – I din’t have it at the restaurant as I was extremely full by the time it was time for the desserts. So, I took a parcel went home and had it in the evening, hehe :D. They give you a small container with sugar syrup to add the konafa, gooey and good cheese. Always eat your Konfa hot/warm because if it’s cold then wouldn’t taste good as the cheese will become hard and won’t any good.

Ambience –

Lovely seating with pretty good views and great ambience. Very clean and organised.

IMG_4161

Service – Very fast service, the food was out in minutes! Also the staff was very friendly and totally helpful with everything. I love a restaurant with good service and staff, because if the place has good service and staff then everything is great!

Overall – A great experience at Baydar with good food, surely recommending it to everyone to try them out, you wouldn’t have any difficulties with the parking as it’s inside the mall and there is free mall wifi too, so you can enjoy everything at ones!

IMG_4159

One the Pocket – Kind of pocket friendly as they ain’t too expensive nor too low on the price.

Location – They’re located on the first floor of Barsha Mall.

New Veg Restaurant in town – Riso

I was invited for a media preview by Yardstick Marketing for Riso. As I walked inside the first thing that caught my eye was the amazing interior and the decor! Such bright and vibrant colors are used for the decor of Riso! πŸ˜€

IMG_3910
Lovely Interiors and Decor

Let’s hop on to the food, shall we πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€

Soup –

Mushroom Cappuccino – We started off with their special soup, which is actually served in a very different manner, that is in a Cup like a cappuccino. The soup on the below and milk froth on the top. At first I thought I wouldn’t like it, but I was wrong. The soup was good, pretty creamy and you could get tiny chunks of mushrooms too in a sip, it was a hit for me! A Must Try!

Starters

Nachos with Beans – The nachos were freshly made and were topped with beans (rajma), chopped tomatoes and green peppers and loads of cheddar cheese, aah so good and the nachos were a little spicy, which made everything taste even better! πŸ˜€ A Must Try!

IMG_3911Nachos with Beans

Fungi Trifolati – Fresh mushrooms sauteed with Italian herbs and served with garlic bread, this dish was pretty good as the mushrooms were properly sauteed and the herbs dint overpower the dish.

IMG_3915Fungi Trifolati

Garlic Bread – We were supposed to get the Masala Garlic Bread which never made to our table. So they served us garlic bread, very mediocre, wouldn’t order this dish personally. No seasoning, couldn’t taste any garlic either, a big NO for me!

IMG_9037Garlic Bread

Spinachi Salsa – This was something new and actually tasted good, the dip was made of spinach (duh :P), cream, cheese, a little bit of spices and served with toasted bread. A good twist to the normal salsa!

IMG_9039Spinachi Salsa

Hot Mezzo

Black & White Sesame Coated Cottage cheese with Spicy sauce – Wow, that’s a mouthful of a name πŸ˜› I love paneer, but this dish gave me 50-50 thoughts about the same. The paneer was over grilled which made the paneer taste brunt and rubbery, wasn’t seasoned with any salt either. The good part was their spicy sauce which got the dish back to life. I know that’s the reason it’s not seasoned and all, but I think if the paneer was a little less grilled and had a little seasoning would taste way better.

IMG_3916Black & White Sesame Coated Cottage cheese with Spicy sauce

Mains –

Al Pesto Genovese – Penne Pasta in Pesto sauce, tasty and heavenly!

IMG_9045Al Pesto Genovese

Zen Thin Crust Pizza – Thin crust pizza which was topped with bell peppers, black olives and lots of cheese, tasted a little bland to me, I would love a little chili flakes on the top and that would do wonders to the pizza! haha πŸ˜€

IMG_3922Zen Thin Crust Pizza

Dessert –

Chocolate brownie topped with ice cream – The brownie was served in a cute little bucket. Everyone loves a good brownie with ice cream!

Ambience –Β 

Lovely ambience, spacious seating and great interior!

IMG_3906Vibrant Colors

IMG_9021Spacious Seating

Overall –

They surely they need small improvements with food and a lot with their service, very very slow service and the staff was so confused with what to serve, we dint get to try a lot of their dishes which was served that evening because the staff being so confused with what they were serving everyone. That surely was a big bummer to the evening! I really hope the service has got better since then!

On the Pocket –

If you’re finding for a pocket friendly restaurant then this is not the place, as they’re a little on the expensive side for your pockets!

Location –

Riso is located right in front of Lamcy Plaza, Oud Metha. You can never have an issue with finding parking!

Let’s go back to Punjab with Chawlas^2 :D

Let me take you on a food journey to Punjab with some good Punjabi Khana πŸ˜€

Thank you to my blogger friends The Scrumptious Scavengers for taking me along for a tasting at Chawlas2, I’m so glad to discover an authentic punjabi restaurant. We were welcomed by Mr.Arvinder, the franchisee/owner of Chawlas2. He took us back to the history where all the magic started and is still going on very strongly!!

IMG_9482

Let me quickly jump to the food, because I can’t wait to tell you guys what all I ate πŸ˜€

Beverages

I started off with two beverages, 1 was the Sweet Lime Soda, which took me back to India!! Ah so good and refreshing, the soda had some soda masala too, bonus points for that. πŸ˜€

IMG_3947Lime Soda (12dhs) and Salted Lassi (15dhs)

My 2nd beverage was the Salted Lassi, I’m a crazy lassi person, because it’s just a little thinner version of yogurt and I love it so much, and literally this lassi was hands down my favourite, so fresh and so thick! Loved it! A must try to both the beverages!

IMG_3951Salted Lassi (15dhs)

Starters

Mr. Arvinder was very kind to serve me the whole Vegetarian Platter which consisted with different assortments like

Paneer Tikka – Very flavorful, paneer was fresh not rubbery at all, soft and tasty.

Veg Seekh Kebab – Were a little dry but tasted good.

Tandoori Gobi – Totally Masalaidar and properly tandoor’d

Tandoori Mushroom – Very standard and tasted good.

Stuffed Tandoori Aloo – I would write a whole para for the Aloo’s, they were my favorite on the platter, they were so good! The aloo were scooped and filled with crushed sesame seeds, spices, and bits of paneer and tandoor’d so well, oh so good! A Must Try!

IMG_3957Veg Tandoori Platter (39dhs)

I dint go for a lot in mains, because by the time I got done with the platter I was full and also I was the only vegetarian πŸ˜› So dint order a big portions, went for small portions. Pls remember when you order the quantity will differ for the mains.
IMG_9501
Up – Non Veg Platter(69dhs) , Middle – Tandoori Mutton Burra (41dhs), Down – Veg Platter (39dhs) *The quantity may vary

Insider to the Restaurant –

Chawlas2 is very well known for their signature dish “The Cream Chicken” where everything started, back in the days in Ludhiana they only use to do take away of their signature dish with a loaf of bread. Everybody instantly fell in love with their cream chicken and today they’ve almost 100 branches across the globe, like North India, UK, USA, Australia and 2 years old in Dubai, UAE πŸ˜€

The restaurants name, Chawlas^2 which is actually Chawla’s Sqaure, where the veg and the non veg authentic punjabi food meets, how cool and unique is thatt?? πŸ˜€

I would like to add a fun fact about their spices used in Cream Chicken or Cream Paneer for the vegetarians, literally nobody knows what are the secret spices, they’re freshly made in India and sent them over here!! Wow, that’s a big secret right here πŸ˜€

IMG_3943
Interiors

Okay, let’s get back to my mains, shall we ? πŸ˜€

Mains –

I tried the signature dish – cream chicken gravy (don’t worry I dint eat chicken, they removed some gravy for me before adding the chicken, haha πŸ˜› ) It is an off white colour gravy, which is thick and spicy. The gravy is slightly spicy but the spice doesn’t give you burning sensation in your throat, that’s win for me! A Must Try

IMG_3972
Signature Dish – Cream Chicken(37dhs) Gravy with Laccha Paratha(6dhs)

I also had Paneer Tikka Masala with laccha paratha and butter naan. The paneer was soft from the inside that it melts straight away and a little hard from the outside because it tandoor’d at the right heat. Paneer Tikka Masala is slightly pink gravy and not like our normal Paneer Tikka Masala. The spices in this gravy was also not over powering the paneer. I had two breads, from which I really like the butter naan because it was softer than the laccha paratha. Laccha partha got a little difficult to break as it got colder.

IMG_3973
Paneer Tikka Masala(33dhs)

My favorite sabzi would be the Cream Paneer if you’re a veg and Cream Chicken if you’re a non veg, it an absolute Must Try!

We ended our tasty punjabi food journey with some lip smacking dessert!

Dessert – Gulab Jamun (Happy dance)

I loveeee Gulab Jamun so much!!! They served us some warm Gulab Jamun’s which were so soft and stuffed with kesar and pista! I had one 1 jamun because we were sharing πŸ˜› If we weren’t I would have eaten two of them πŸ˜› A Must Try!
IMG_3984
Gulab Jamun (15dhs)

Yin & Yang Restaurant – JLT

Few days a go my Lunch was on Hyperlink Media, they got me delivered some good Chinese lunch from a Restaurant located at the JLT – Yin & Yang.

I was sent a vegetarian combo with a dessert which was a tiramisu.

IMG_3327.JPG

Let’s get talking about the food! πŸ˜€

So the vegetarian combo had 3 food items which were the Fried Rice, Manchurian with Gravy , 2 pieces of Veg Spring Rolls and also a soft drink of your choice.

Spring Rolls – The Spring rolls were really good, it had veggies like cabbage, onion, carrots and some seasoning to the rolls, nice and flavorful. Must Try!

Fried Rice – I love fried rice and manchurian with gravy and I was really excited to try both the dishes from Yin & Yang. The fried rice was alright, wouldn’t say the best, the fried rice had few carrots and peas, it lacked a little bit on the flavor also felt a little dry. Yes, I know that’s why you get condiments to add to the dish. But for me it was slightly on the miss side and not win.

Manchurian with gravy – The Manchurian was an absolute win for me! So soft and so flavorful with that oh so good gravy! Okay, if you’ve both the rice and gravy together it tastes spectacular, a 3.5/5 from me but separately it was a miss here and there with the rice..

IMG_3307

I was also sent a bowl of Tiramisu which was really creamy (good point) and a tad bit sweet for my liking (bad point), the dessert wasn’t made a proper authentic style, it was a miss from my side on the tiramisu too.

The vegetable combo is actually a very good deal as it for only 29dhs, and you’ll be full in no time with all that food, the amount of food they pack in that container is soo much!!:D Tiramisu was for 22dhs

All in all it was a good experience to try some authentic Chinese food by just sitting home :D, would surely give them a try next time to try their Italian dishes too as they also serve Italian dishes too, *ppizzaaa* πŸ˜€
