Dillicious – Al Karama

Dillicious is the new restaurant in town, just 1-2months old and they’re located in Karama. They’ve made the whole restaurant into a modern indian dhaba and I love it! They’ve literally have a trucks front body inside the restaurant, say whaattt!! :O

IMG_3443

I had visited them along my foodie blogger friend Aditi πŸ˜€ Also thank you to Stylecode Media for the invite πŸ˜€ Let’s get to the food, shall we? πŸ˜€

IMG_5132

Beverages – Strawberry Mojito – 12dhs – I was very surprised with how good the mojito actually tasted, I was debating before the mojito came. Not too sweet nor too sour, just perfect the way it should be. Must Try!

IMG_5133

Starter – Veg Kebab Platter – 35dhs – The platter consisted of Stuffed mushrooms – were well done and had some cheese stuffing in it. Stuffed potatoes – I liked the outer layer which was crispy and flavourful, dint really like the stuffing. Achari Soya Chaap – One of the best chaaps I have had, I’m a very big fan of soya chaps and these tasted excellent, the tanginess of the achar made the dish taste even more better. Paneer Tikka – Very soft and properly tandoor’d, nobody can go wrong with paneer tikka. Seekh Kebab – very soft from that inside and crispy from the outside. loved it!

IMG_5142

Samosa Chaat – 10dhs – ONE OF THE BEST SAMOSA CHAAT IN TOWN!! Literally so good, very simple made but so so good. The dish dint have the masalai chole, just boiled chole’s, green chutney, red chutney, curd, onions, tomatoes and topped with salted boondi. such simple ingredients but a very hearty dish! Worth the amount. A Must Try

Mains – Ordered 1 sabzi, 1 dal, roti basket and biryani (veg options)

Paneer Tikka Tawa Masala – 30dhs – The paneer is tandoor’d in their bhatti and the gravy is made right in front of you in their open kitchen on the tawa, proper dhaba style! The gravy is a brown gravy which isn’t too runny and is properly coated onto the paneer, not too spicy and not bland at all!

IMG_5143

Dal Dhaba – 22dhs – We wanted to have their Dal Makhani but the manager suggested us to try their Dal Dhaba and surprisingly this dish was a bomb.com! It is made almost like dal makhani but had a mix of 5 dals, very very good tasting dish. You should surely order Dal Dhaba. A Must Try!

IMG_5146

Roti Basket – 24dhs – The basket consisted of 4-5 different kinds of roti’s and they were very soft and not rubbery. Also very reasonable for the amount of roti’s you get, I always order the roti basket at the restaurants because you get more quantity and you pay less. A Must Try!

IMG_5145

Paneer Tikka Biryaani – 24dhs – I freaking loved the biryaani, so so flavourful and delicious! Every scoop you eat you can taste the masala’s and the tons of saffron. The best part is they make the same base rice for both veg and non veg biryani, so you’re not missing on anything! A Must Try!

IMG_5148

Dessert – We ordered 2 desserts

Gulab Jamun with Ice Cream – 14dhs – I wasn’t a big fan the gulab jamun as I hate elaichi in my jamun and these had a lot of strong flavour of elaichi, so it was a miss for me.

IMG_3439

Ras Malai – 12dhs – Nothing wow, very mediocre.

IMG_5161

Staff and Service – Friendly staff and quick service!

One the Pocket – Pretty Pocket friendly, I look at myself visiting them soon in the future πŸ˜€

Overall – I really liked everything overall, the food is phenomenal, as we couldn’t finish all the food in one seating we did a take away took it home for my parents, and I kid you not they LOVED the food! The ambience and seating is really chilled. I loved the art wall and the truck, just the highlight of the restaurant πŸ˜€ The staff and the service is upto the mark. Do not panic about the parking as you’re going to find a lot of parking in this area and also it’s a C zone πŸ˜€

The Bhukkad Cafe

Bhukkad Cafe is the newest place everyone is literally hanging around! My friend Aditi was invited and she took me and Shabina/Shabosphere for tasting on Women’s Day! This place is beautifully interior-ed, love the ambience and seating. But every place has some hits and misses, so did bhukkad cafe! Let’s get talking about the food and our order!

It being International Women’s Day, they were serving a glass of Jalebi Milkshake to every Woman in the house, that was a very sweet gesture! Umm, sadly I dint like the shake at all, very watery and buttery. The first sip makes your whole mouth very buttery, that’s something I dislike the most, Jalebi Shake was a miss for me!

IMG_5092

Bhukkad Cafe, doesn’t have anything like starters or mains. We started off with Chau Mean.

Chau Mean – 26dhs – Chau mean was the dish between hit and miss, the dish was very bland, no spice or salt was added. We added some chutney from our sandwich which made it taste it a little better. Chau Mean was served on Spade, yes the one which we use in gardening, I personally loved the presentation, very quirky and different!

IMG_5098Top – Chau Mean , Below – Chilli Chicken

Mithibai Grill Sandwich – 26dhs – I have never had the original mithibai grill sandwich but what I had here at Bhukkad Cafe was really tasty, flavorful and loaded with cheese and served with potato chips! A Must Try

IMG_5100

Pizza Fries – 22dhs – Them fries were also loaded with cheese on the top, the fries had pizza sauce, few jalapeno’s and the rest I forgot πŸ˜› sorry about that πŸ˜›Β  I feel the quantity as per the price pretty less and if the dish was baked or had melted cheese or a little cooked cheese would taste even better. I get they’re trying to recreate the dishes you get in India food stalls but this was my little thought to the dish.

IMG_5101

Pull Out Bread – 32dhs – This was my personal favorite and I was really looking forward for this dish since I saw some of my friends posting them pictures on instagram (you can also follow me Instagram – @hemangiramani , self promo πŸ˜› ) let’s get back to the dish πŸ˜› haha πŸ˜› So, it’s slab of small pav bread, they scoop the top and add finely chopped capsicums, onions, tomatoes, corn and mix them in butter an some masala and which is also topped with cheese, oregano and chili flakes. Only the sad part was that the cheese dint pull out as it had cold by the time we finished taking our pictures and all πŸ˜› A Must Try if you’re a cheese lover!

GQII7970

Chaat Platter – 40dhs – Umm, very expensive for the quantity I’m getting and also I dint like either of the chaats, mostly all of them were very spicy or had no proper spice. The chaat platter was a miss for me!

Mac n Tikka – 36dhs – Bringing the Italian Pasta with an Indian Paneer/Chicken Tikka twist! This dish would taste epic if they used a little less garam masala to it, the masala over took the whole dish and you could barely taste anything else, and on the other hand the normal white sauce pasta was really good, that was a win for me, otherwise the tikka masala gravy was a very big let down.

IMG_3021

Brownie Shake – 28dhs – Even this shake was a little watery to me, whenever the word shake comes to mind I always think of kind of thick shake, tasted a lot like chocolate milkshake, it was okay. All points to the presentation!

LKUK9790

For the desserts we went for a cake and ice creams –

Sticky Toffee Cake – 22dhs – I personally ain’t a big sticky toffee cake fan because the dessert consist of dates, it’s not that I don’t like dates but I do not like it in my desserts warm. That’s too me TMI πŸ˜› Let’s get back to the dish πŸ˜› Overall the cake tasted very soft, moist and not too sweet, the cake was served with ice cream on the top. A Must Try!

Ice Cream – Gulkaand 24dhs and Paan Vanilla – 22dhs – Both the ice creams tasted extremely good, very flavorful and just the same way as they would taste in real. I’m not sure what they served us in was their regular size of serving or it was only for us, but if that was their regular portion of serving for the ice cream then, bro that’s extremely EXPENSIVE!

IMG_5129

Service and Staff – Staff was a little confused with few of our orders, they kept coming and asking would you still need this or forget our order. They need to work with that and also the service was alright.

On the Pocket – Pretty pretty expensive on the pocket, if you’re a middle class earning person like I’m, then I don’t think this the ideal place for you! The amount they are charging isn’t right for the quantity they serve. This is my personal thought.

Overall – I loved the ambience, very different and indianised! Few of their dishes were really good be that veg or non veg and some were under the mark, which they need to work on them. They also need to work on their staffs with taking orders and phrasing a question correctly to the customers. You’ll find a lot of parking around the place and luckily its the ‘C’ zone so you ain’t paying a lot on your parking. They’re almost all the time full and there is a lot of people in waiting too, so you better call them up before you leave to check if there aren’t enough people when you reach there. This was my honest review about the place, pls do not think I was bashing the cafe in anyways! These were my personal thoughts on what all I was served.

Black Salt

Have you all been in the University City area in Sharjah?? If not then you’re missing out on very good food branches just like Black Salt! Very unique and different seating and interiors with open kitchen, so you can look at how your food to drinks are made! Sitting beside an open kitchen is really fun and also you know how your food is been cooked πŸ˜€

IMG_2094

I was invited to their Bloggers Tasting Session on a fine Friday afternoon, and we all had a feast πŸ˜€ They were really sweet to have veg options for some of us vegetarian bloggers πŸ˜€

Let’s dig into the food, shall we? πŸ˜€

We started off with some of their home-made breads which were very soft and fresh! Love it πŸ˜€

IMG_4806

Drinks – They have very fun names to their drinks and I tried one of their new edition πŸ˜€

It’s so annoying when somebody says the name of a song and then it’s stuck in your head all day. Like, β€œIf you like Pina Colada and getting caught in the rain” πŸŽΆπŸ™ˆπŸ˜‹ . . . . . This is the fancy looking Pina Colada from @blacksaltae 🍍 I really like things with dry ice, everything becomes so much fun! 😍😁 I had ordered their Kandy Krush drink, and it was so so good, it’s also new on their menu. So, when you go next to @blacksaltae don’t forget to order one☝️ Kandy Krush 😁 @zomatouae . . . . . #bloggersinvite #zomatouae #zomato #sharjahfood #sharjah #uae #uaefoodiesbloggers #dubaifoodiebybirth #dubaiblogger #sharjahuniversitycity #blacksaltae #newrestaurantinsharjah #pinacolada #pineapple #drink #dryice #noicefood #coldturkeydxb #coolfood #eatoutdxb #dxbreakfasts #vegetarianfoodblogger #uaefoodbloggers #likesforlikes #dubaifoodiebloggers #okaybyeee

Kandy Krush – They serve their drinks in an unique way, my drink came in a small half barrel kind of pot withΒ a small bowl which had lots of dry ice, and they pour liquid nitrogen for the smoke and instantly your drink becomes just so cool to watch & drink πŸ˜€ Also there were 2 small bottles, a glass full of shredded ice and lots of gummy worms on the top with some sour syrup drizzled,Β  Small bottles – one had the drink in it and the other had the soda, you pour both together in the drink. I love drinks which has a balance of both sweet and sourness together and this was perfect. A Must Try!

IMG_4822

Appetizers – Us the vegetarians had 3 appetizers to ourselves and I loved some and dint love some that much.

IMG_2134

Mac n Cheese Nachos – 44dhs –Fried Mac n Cheese, Whaatt?? Who is even coming up with such things?? Not the first time I have had though πŸ˜› By the time we had the mac n cheese nachos, they had gone all cold because we had to get the best shot – blogger problems, haha πŸ˜› Basically Mac n Cheese Nachos are made into fritters and coated with doritos and fried, yes you read it write, epic isn’t it? πŸ˜€ and they are all crunchy from the outside and soft from the inside with cheese ozzing out, which dint happen in our case πŸ˜› Though they tasted good, the best part was their salsa sauce, the whole dish got to another level of goodness! A Must Try!

IMG_4835

Corn on the Cob – 22dhs – A regular corn on the cob served with some spices, crushed cheetos and sauces drizzled on. Tasted great but I don’t think so I would spend so much on a corn on the cob.

IMG_4834

Classic Watermelon and Feta Cheese – 39dhs – This combination of watermelon and cheese is outstanding!! The sweetness of the watermelon and the saltiness of the feta cheese compliments the whole dish! A Must Try!

IMG_4825

Mains – We had 2 vegetarian dish for the mains.

Pepper Mushroom Pasta – 45dhs – The pasta were Alfredo sauce pasta’s and I kid you not when I tell these were the best pasta I have had this year!! The sauce was so creamy and cheese and the black pepper taste was just so good! We literally downed this dish in no time, it was that delicious πŸ˜€ A Must Try!

IMG_4843

Flatbread – 44dhs – I’m sorry, I do not remember the name of this dish, also this dish was also on their recommended list. Sauteed spinach base topped with lots of cheese and drizzled with truffle oil and finally topped with fresh baby spinach! Yum, tasted very delicious! A Must Try!

IMG_4845

Desserts – They were made freshly for everyone, so it took them too long to get the desserts out.

Red Velvet Tower – 38dhs – The tower is served very fancily in a huge bowl with dry ice smoke. Cake was very soft and the icing wasn’t too sweet so it was a balance of sweetness overall. A Must Try!

IMG_4854

Black Salt Date Cake – Damn!! Their presentation is so so beautiful, I absolutely loved it πŸ˜€ So, they made a sphere out of caramelized sugar and in between kept is the date cake and ice cream. This tasted aahhmaazzingg!! The caramelized sugar with the cake and ice cream tasted out of this world, it was surely my favorite dessert! A Must Try!

IMG_4857

Service and Staff – The service was a little slow, probably because there were a lot of us that day! The staff on the other hand were friendly and helpful with the orders πŸ˜€

On the Pocket – I would say they’re a on the expensive side, so think and order!

Overall – A very fancy shancy place, also very instagramable. The prices are on a little expensive though, so if you’re on a budget then this is not the right place for you! The food overall is good, very unique and different, loved the drinks options and the pasta! They’re Kids friendly, instagramable, got loadsss of parking, and they’ve free wifi! πŸ˜€

Blaze Burger

I had Blaze Burger on my list ever since they opened in UAE. The interiors and the graffiti art on the walls are really unique and quirky, love it πŸ˜€ They’ve pretty Huge portions for everything, so sharing would be the best thing!

IDMB4703[1]

I had gone along with my 3 girl friend bloggers and we had the best time πŸ˜€

We had a lot of food, but as I’m writing about the vegetarian food it’s not going to look a lot, haha πŸ˜›

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

Drinks

Blaze on the beach – 20dhs – The drink was really refreshing and you could taste all the flavors, sourness of the cranberry and orange and tad bit of sweetness from the peach.

IMG_4770

American Mojito – 20dhs – The classic virgin mojito, you can never go wrong with the classic mojito but surely make it taste better just like this one. A Must Try!

IMG_2718

Fries – We went over board with the fries, but they’re sooo goood!! Like all of them were so so good, I’m going back for all their fries soon! πŸ˜€ I’m sure you’ve heard of fries before guys, haha πŸ˜› πŸ˜€

Cajun Scoopers – 17dhs – They’re basically potato fries but made into scoops, fried and sprinkled with their secret cajun spices, and you get 1 dip along with the fries. You can choose your dip, I don’t remember the dip but these fries were so damn crunchy but soft from the inside! This was the first time I have tried such fries and they were damn delicious! A Must Try

IMG_4777.JPG

Reloaded Fries – 24dhs – The fries were cooked perfectly, loads of cheese is put and drizzled with their secret but delicious sauce and topped with lot of Jalapenos. You’ll have to pay 2dhs extra for the Jalapenos though, which is absolutely worth as it changes the taste of the dish totally to another level! A Must Try

IMG_E1907

Angry Fries – 28dhs – The name says it all yeah ?? Angry fries, HAHA!! πŸ˜€ So, the fries were topped with tons of cheese, their chili gravy sauce and then with lots of capsicums and jalapenos. If you’re okay with eating spicy food then you’ll surely enjoy these fries πŸ˜€ A Must Try!

Show me a person who doesn’t like french fries and we’ll swap lies! πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸŸ . . . . . This is the spicy Angry Fries from @blazeburgers , damn this place is so so good!!

Crazy Fries – 28dhds – These fries come with Bacon, but we told them to minus the bacon because none of us eat bacon, but the fries just topped with their awesomeness sauce, yes that’s their sauce’s name. πŸ˜€ The fries are then topped with some fried onion, delicious! A Must Try!

ozxp3483.jpg

Mains – They sadly have only 1 vegetarian option but that one option is my favorite and that’s the Portobello Mushroom Burger.

Portobello Mushroom – 42dhs – Basically you make your own burger, from breads to sauces to extra toppings you choose everything (you’ll have to pay extra 4dhs for each extra toppings). If you’re a health freak you can choose lettuce as your bun too. I went for the white bun and the sauce I chose was Heaven and Hell, I’m sure can make out from the name how spicy would the sauce be πŸ˜› They don’t even add the Nuclear Mustard Sauce in your burger just because it’s that spicy. I tried the sauce with 1 cajun fries and instantly needed water πŸ˜› But without the sauce the burger tasted really bland so I ended up spreading some Nuclear Mustard Sauce and Spicy Mayo. After that the burger tasted great πŸ˜€

Desserts – We went GAGA over the desserts, as usual πŸ˜› They make their cakes in the pan they serve in, the desserts are HOT and right out of the oven.

Me – I can’t eat anymore, I’m full! Server – Do you want any β€œDessert” Also Me – YAAASSS!! πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆπŸ˜ I don’t have a sweet tooth, I have sweet teethπŸ˜πŸ™ˆ . . . . . I had two fav desserts from @blazeburgers , the chocolaty Gooey Skillet and the delicious Cookie Blondie!

Gooey Chocolate Skillet – The cake was surely very chocolaty and gooey, very soft and a little too sweet for my liking.

OOLG4111

Cookie Blondie – OMG! This is just a big cookie made in a pan, i loved it! Not too sweet and tasted fantastic with some ice cream and choco chips. My absolute favorite! A Must Try!

BOTW5108[1]

Service and Staff – Very friendly staff and quick with everything. Their service is also super quick. You’ll have to do a self service ordering, once ordered you’ll be handed a table number and then the food is served in no time! πŸ˜€

IMG_4776

On the Pocket – Definitely a little to expensive on your pocket but as I always say go in groups and split, that way you all your friends can try different things and pay equally too! πŸ˜€

Overall – A great experience, but would surely want some more vegetarian burger options because I’m sure everyone is not a mushroom fan, other than everything is great. πŸ˜€ When you’re at Blaze Burger you get a feeling of you’re sitting at an olden days club, love the funkie arts and different kind of seating! Finding a parking would be a little difficult as it’s JBR, but I would suggest you to come in 1 car if you’re 4-5pax. As the parking pricing is a little higher. Parallel parking on the road on weekends is 50dhs for 8hours and on weekdays its 30dhs for 3hours. There is a building parking too which is 10dhs per hour. And if you’re thinking to ditch the car, you can use the tram too as it’s on a walking distance from Blaze Burgers πŸ˜€ They’ve free wifi, outside seating, choose your condiments wall and they’re kids friendly too! πŸ˜€
