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.

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..

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.

IMG_3321

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˜€

Do check them out on Zomato for their menu, you can also contact them on 04 5508306

Gioia Italian Restaurant – Fairmont Ajman

I was lucky to be a part of Hyperlink Media’s first bloggers event which happened last week at the Fairmont Ajman, a big thank you to their lovely co founder Nihara for the invite at the newly relaunched Gioia Italian Restaurant.

IMG_7021

I had a great time meeting some awesome sauce bloggers, Let’s getting talking about the awesome sauce food too πŸ˜‰

IMG_6961

We started with some appetizers –  for the vegetarians they had a vegetarian platter that had,

1)  Mozzarella Di Buffala Alla Caprese – This dish had tomatoes, basil and the mozzarella cheese and this dish was my favorite, you can guess why eh? πŸ˜›

2) Insalat Averdure Miste Con Formaggi Di Capelli – Okay, let me break it down for you about the dish, it was a mixed green salad which was mixed with some goat cheese, cherry tomatoes and some aged balsamic. I dint like the goat cheese *surprise*, I thought I liked all the cheeses but I was wrong when I tasted the goat cheese πŸ˜› other than that it was good πŸ˜€

3). Crema Di Broccoli Al Gorgonzola E Crostini – Broccoli soup with some gorgonzola soup, really liked the soup because it was creamy and cheesyy πŸ˜€ it was a win πŸ˜€ I have started to like broccoli soup, a lot lately πŸ˜› Must Try πŸ˜€

IMG_3169

So we were told we could choose any drinks from the menu we want,

IMG_3192

I went for the classic Strawberry Mojito, Oh so refreshing and so good in taste too! An absolute recommendation πŸ˜€ A Must Try!

IMG_3190

Before we got our main “Mains” we got to try their wood fire baked PIZZAAAAA!! haha yess!! We were served with 3 pizza’s, which was the Quattro Formaggi ( 4 cheese obvio!) , Zingara (The veg one) and the last was Capricciosa (Pepperoni Pizza) and 3 out of 2 of them were the one I could eat, I was over the moon to have two options! Haha πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

IMG_3174

Okay, I love cheese a lot, but without a doubt my favourite was the Zingara, so cheesy and right amount of cheese and properly cooked veggies πŸ˜€ Zingara is a Must Try! πŸ˜€

IMG_3183

We were served with 2 veg mains and both were pasta’s, all the pasta’s at Gioia Restaurant are homemade and the pasta chosen that day were the Casarecce pasta. I have never tried the Casarecce pasta and they were actually so good. 

The two pasta dishes we had were the Arabiatta pasta and Alfredo Pasta. (I’m sorry for not knowing the right name of the dish)

IMG_7075

My favorite was the Arabiatta pasta as they were really flavorful, had the right amount of sauce, spices and. Alot if cheese on the top! 😁

IMG_3201

Can we talk about the crazy good desserts we ended our day with?? There were freaking 3 good desserts ❀ πŸ˜€

IMG_3239Espresso Frozen Parafait with Coffee glee and chocolate soup

The 3 desserts were Espresso Frozen Parafait with Coffee glee and chocolate soup, Hazelnut Mousseline Napoline with Mascopone cream and peach campote and last but not the least Manjari Molten Chocolate and Caramelized Popcorn Gelato, Compressed Strawberries.

IMG_3206Hazelnut Mousseline Napoline with Mascopone cream and peach campote

My favorite out all 3 was the Molten Chocolate cake because of the ooey gooey chocolate and the caramel ozzing out the cake! The gelato served was so good too! πŸ˜€

IMG_3246

I had an awesome friday with all the great bloggers, Gioia has great service and very friendly staff, If you’re dinning in at the Gioia Restaurant do ask for Omar as your server! He was great πŸ˜€

We lastly had a tour of the Hotel and got to see their Penthouse at the 14th floor and it was damn huge, a 2 story penthouse!! It was like a dream house anybody could ask for πŸ˜€  I’ve attached a picture of the view from the penthouse for you to get a lil jealous of me, Haha πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

IMG_3262

Thank You so much Hyperlink Media for such a lovely invite and really looking forward to join you for more bloggers meet πŸ˜€

Joory and Cadi

I was invited for a bloggers meet/tasting session by the awesome blogger Jo (@soul_wayfarer). Joory and Cadi is opened recently, few months ago and they’re located in Dubai Health Care City. They serve Arabic, Italian, Fast food, etc

IMG_3073

Joory and Cadi is more popular for their beverages! They had some refreshing beverages for us ready like, the watermelon mint, the classic lemon mint, raspberry ice tea and fresh orange juice! My favourite out of all was their Lemon Mint – A Must Try!

IMG_3025On Left – Lemon Mint – On Right – Watermelon Mint (Hand Model – @tastentellme)

Now lets get to the yummy food. Shall we? πŸ˜€ So we were served some good looking and tasting food! Started with their appetizers,

IMG_3018

Appetizers

Mozzarella Sticks – They were served hot right out of the pan! You can never go wrong with cheese and for sure, they also dint! The sticks were served with ketchup. A Must Try!

IMG_3008Mozzarella Sticks

Garlic Bread with Cheese – I’m sure we all are sucker for garlic bread with cheese, aren’t we? πŸ˜› I like my garlic bread soft at the bottom and not too hard/crunchy. This garlic bread had the right amount of garlic which dint over power the cheese, and also had lots of cheese and a pinch of oregano!

IMG_3035Garlic Bread with Cheese.

Soups – Broccoli Soup – This was hands down the best broccoli soup I have had in a very long time, so so creamy and cheesy! Every slurp you take there is a broccoli piece, so it’s healthy to yeah? πŸ˜› I did have two bowls of soup, made my mumma proud, haha πŸ˜› – A Must Must Must Try!!!

IMG_3011Broccoli Soup

Salads – We were served with two salads.

Avocado Salad – The avocado salad was basically guacamole with lots of otherΒ  fresh veggies like corn, tomatoes, onion, cucumber and some olives! Next time you’ve these veggies at home and don’t know what to do? cut them and make a fresh bowl of avo salad πŸ˜€

IMG_3039Avocado Salad

But the Greek Salad was the winner for me, you ask me why? Haah, because the cheese! πŸ˜› Haha no no, I’m just kidding! (Maybe :P) I liked the Greek Salad because I like my salad crunchy! The veggies in the salad were lettuce, red bell peppers, black olives, tomatoes and some, okay not some lot of feta cheese πŸ˜› which was drizzled with some olive oil and some salad seasoning and you’re done! Aah tasstyy!! πŸ˜€ – A must Try!

IMG_3044Greek Salad

Mains – Pasta – We had 3 pasta dishes, 1 vegetarian and 2 non vegetarian.

IMG_6301Top – Spaghetti Bolognese , Left – Fettuccine with Mushroom and Chicken, Down – Bina Arabiata, Right – Greek Salad

Bina Arabiatta – The presentation was beautiful no doubt, but it lacked a little flavor to the dish, probably a little more spice would do good! πŸ˜€

IMG_3049Bina Arabiatta

Let’s end our mains with my main ❀ Pizza ❀

Vegetarian Pizza – The pizza are cooked in a wood fire oven right in front of you in their kitchen! Good tasting pizza with, thin crust, ample amount of sauce, generous amount of fresh veggies and topped with lots of cheese.

IMG_6324Vegetarian Pizza

Let’s finish this with their lip smacking desserts and freak shakes,

Oreo Cheesecake – The cheesecake was a little creamy than I expected, but the oreo base/tart was to die for!!

IMG_6404Oreo Cheesecake

The best dessert of the afternoon, the warm/hot chocolate molten cake, OH MY GOD!! that was soo good, goey and chocolatey from the inside and soft from the outside and the cake was topped with some vanilla ice cream and drizzled with chocolate and powdered sugar! A Must try in their Menu!!!

IMG_3069

Freakshakes – Smores Freak Shake was my favorite, thick, caramely and right amount of sweetness. The Coffee Freak shake a disappoint though it looked good, it was a disappointment because I was expecting for some chocolate shake but it ended up to be coffee. But the presentation of both the shakes is beautiful!!

IMG_6426

We also met the beautiful owner of the restaurant and chatted with her also asked her few questions regarding the restaurant. One main question we all wanted to know was what did “Joory and Cadi” mean, she told, “Joory and Cadi” is other name to Roses/Flowers, and she also added the name is pretty special to her. πŸ˜€

IMG_3030

I really loved the ambience of the eatery because it’s simple but very creative with the quotes on the wall and also they have a small book corner where you can read books or if you ain’t into books then you can watch your food being prepared, as they have an open kitchen! (they also have wifi, so you can snapchat or insta story your awesome food! :P) The staff is really lovely and their Manager Shane is a sweetheart! Surely visiting them soon with few of my friends!! πŸ˜€

Also, there is a free parking, so don’t park in the paid parking, my fellow blogger friends made that mistake πŸ˜›

Would like to add that the portion of food in the pictures above is for a group of bloggers, so when you visit, they may vary. πŸ™‚

That’s it from my side for today. Hope you enjoy πŸ˜€ See you all soon with another blog πŸ˜€ Happy Eating πŸ˜€

Learn how to make eggless Mug/Cup cake in a microwave. βœ¨

I love me some cake and I keep craving for cake every now and then, yes I know that’s bad πŸ˜› But the good thing is that you can make it whenever you want to and it’s eggless and it’s very quick too! πŸ˜€ 

Ingredients you’ll need are

Excuse my bad photography and shabby placement. πŸ˜› 

Measurements:

4 Tablespoons of Flour

2 Tablespoons of Sugar

1/8th Teaspoon of Baking Powder

3-4 Tablespoons of Milk (Depends on the consistency) 

1 Tablespoon of Vegetable Oil/ Butter 

2 Drops of Vanilla Essence 

1-2 Teaspoons of Cocao Powder 

You can add egg too if you eat egg. 

Method: 

Get yourself a big Mug add all the ingredients and mix everything well. As you’re done mixing add a good 1 -2 tablespoons of Nutella in the batter or on the top on the batter. Pop it in the microwave for 2-3 Minutes. The time may vary with different microwaves. 

Let your cake cool a bit and if you’re too eager just like I’m then dig right into it when it’s still warm (just don’t burn you tongue, haha) πŸ˜› 

You can top your cake with a lot of goodness you want like Ice Cream (my favourite), Lotus Biscoff Spread/Biscuits (you can add that into the cake batter too), Whipped cream, Your choice of icing, Fruits (add after you microwave), Your choice of chocolate (you can add that into the battar too), etc πŸ˜€ 


That’s my final product, I just dint add the cacao powder, and topped it with some Happiness (Nutella)

If you’re lazy and you don’t want to do anything like this then you can also get those cake mixes from the shop like betty crocker, pillsbury, dr. oetker, etc. get any of the mixes of your choice abd then take a mug; Add 4 tablespoons of cake mix, 3-4 tablespoons of milk, 1 tablespoon of oil, mix it well and pop it in the microwave for 2-3 minutes, top your cake with ice cream or whatever you want and your cake is ready to eat! πŸ˜€

Hope you enjoyed this little bake with me blog! If you like this then don’t forget to share it with your friends and family! It’s really easy, fast and eggless too. Don’t worry the cake tastes great, I guarantee you that, just be precise with your measurements. πŸ˜€ 

Eid Mubarak to all my friends celebrating!πŸŒŸπŸŒ™ 

Stay healthy and Stay foodie! πŸ˜€  

Maria Bonita – Mexican Restaurant

I’ve been craving for some good authentic Mexican food and I find Maria Bonita, alas!! Do check out Maria Bonita if you too are a Mexican food lover like I’m. They’re located in Jumeriah and you can easily find them on Smart Drive or on Google Maps, so reaching here wouldn’t be a problem. They do have free parking but sadly the day we had gone it was all full, that can be a little issue.

IMG_9049

Maria Bonita has indoor and outdoor seating both, I had gone on a Friday with a friend of mine and they were already full by the time we reached there and they only had 1 table outside which wasn’t taken, even though they’ve a/c coolers outside it was kind of hot to sit outside, so we opted to sit inside but most of Β the table were taken or some of them were reserved but their staff was kind enough to get us a table. As we get seated their staff straight comes with the Menu’s and their warm basket of Tortilla chips with grilled salsa and fresh salsa. Okay, I’m not even kidding they’ve a hand bag holder, wait what?? HAHA yess, loved that!!

IMG_9029

These chips were huge, so crunchy fresh and so good, as your chips get over they immediately bring in other hot ones! I could eat them all day, not even joking πŸ˜› Β I liked the grilled salsa more than fresh salsa because I could barely taste anything in the fresh salsa other than the coriander leaves; and the grilled salsa was a bit more flavourful as it had more spices.

Left: Grilled Salsa, Right: Fresh Salsa.

IMG_9027

Everything is just so colourful and pretty!! The menu is a bit different on Zomato from their Dine in Menu as they have a lot of more options to order from. If you’re a vegetarian like I’m and you’re afraid of not finding veg options then that wouldn’t happen here because they pretty much have a veg option in everything possible. πŸ˜€

Let’s get to our orders, I ordered their Jumbo Quesadilla (Veg obvio :P) and a glass of Coke and my friend ordered the Nacho Macho with beef, Chimichanga and Β Pina Colada.

I love myself some Quesadilla πŸ˜€ Jumbo Quesadilla had Bell Peppers, Onions, Mushrooms and seasonings with a lot of cheese in the filling. Thier dishes surely isn’t for 1 person, I hardly had 3-4 slices and I was done, I was so full. They taste so good, flavourful and filling for sure. They’re served with guacamole, pico de gallo and sour cream. The best is their Guacamole, you can order it separately with your chips if you want and they will make it fresh right in front of you!Β Yes, its on a pricy side but you can share it with a friend of yours and there always a takeaway option.Β Jumbo Quesadilla is for 52 dhs

IMG_9041

Jumbo Quesadilla (Veg)

Nacho Macho (Beef) the servings are really huge and 1 person can barely eat anything (yes I’m repeating that again :P), as it had beef so I dint eat it, but just look at it, looks so tasty. Nacho Macho was topped with beans, melted cheese, guacamole, pico de gallo, sour cream, jalapenos and meat. If I had to order this (veg option) I would maybe just eat this because I know I wouldn’t be able to eat anything else. πŸ˜› Nacho Macho is for 46dhs.

IMG_9031

Nacho Macho (beef)

My friend had ordered Pina Colada, was alright not the best; It tasted more like I’m having coconut milk rather than Pina Colada. Pina Colada has Pineapple juice and Coconut Milk mixed together but I couldn’t taste any Pineapple. Not sure how much was the drink for. And also if they would serve it in a fancy glass would look better πŸ˜€

IMG_9018

Pina Colada.

It surely was a feast and the food is so good and filling and the portions are huge! The ambience is really chilled but can be a little noisy when there are a lot of people, but that’s a sign of a good restaurant right??? πŸ˜‰ The staff is really attentive and friendly. It can be a little out of budget if you’re a budgeted person but you can come in a group and order few things on the menu and share the food and the bill too πŸ˜€ The soft drinks was for 14dhs yup pricy and that annoys me, but they’re refillable and also huge glasses so you would barely go for a refil, haha πŸ˜› You see what they did there!!

IMG_9039

Left to Rigth: Chimichanga, Nacho Macho, Tortilla Chips, Salsa’s and Jumbo Quesadilla.

The interior was lovely as I have mentioned above, and I’ll surely come back soon and would love to try their other dishes too!! Stay Healthy, Stay Foodie and Stay Tuned!
