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.
I had a great time meeting some awesome sauce bloggers, Let’s getting talking about the awesome sauce food too 😉
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? 😛
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 😛 other than that it was good 😀
3). Crema Di Broccoli Al Gorgonzola E Crostini – Broccoli soup with some gorgonzola soup, really liked the soup because it was creamy and cheesyy 😀 it was a win 😀 I have started to like broccoli soup, a lot lately 😛 Must Try 😀
So we were told we could choose any drinks from the menu we want,
I went for the classic Strawberry Mojito, Oh so refreshing and so good in taste too! An absolute recommendation 😀 A Must Try!
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 😛 😛
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 😀 Zingara is a Must Try! 😀
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)
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! 😁
Can we talk about the crazy good desserts we ended our day with?? There were freaking 3 good desserts ❤ 😀
Espresso 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.
Hazelnut 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! 😀
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 😀
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 😀 I’ve attached a picture of the view from the penthouse for you to get a lil jealous of me, Haha 😛 😛
Thank You so much Hyperlink Media for such a lovely invite and really looking forward to join you for more bloggers meet 😀
Stay Tuned for more blogs with me, till then stay awesome and stay foodie 😀
