Sukkar

I recently visited Sukkar for a Dessert tasting with my blogger freind Aditi, which we wanted to go ever since we saw them tasty posts on in my feed! I surely don’t have a sweet tooth because I have sweet teeth πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

Let me share a little back story about Sukkar to you guys! Sukkar is concept by Logma and they serve modernized Emarati and Khaleeji sweets. They have a lot delicious flavors in their overall desserts like, Rahash (Halawa – Sesame seed paste with sugar/honey) , karak chai, rose, saffron, pistachio, etc.

So, shall we get to what all we ordered πŸ˜€

1.Nutella Well – 48dhs – I had a lot of favorites and this was one of them, oh so good and gooey! As you cut the hot molten cake the chocolate river flows out. I absolutely loved it! A Must Try!

2. Milk Cake – 50dhs each – Recently I have gone GAGA over milk cakes because they’re extremely soft and melts right in the mouth, love it! We ordered two of them, saffron and rose, both were extremely good and both the flavors were my fav!! A Must Try!!

3. Lugaimat – 36dhs – We couldn’t decide with what topping to go with so we asked them to get us Nutella and Lotus. They got us both in different dipping bowls. Them lugaimat were so crunchy from out and so soft from the inside and properly cooked too. Loved it, they tasted great even after they got a little cold πŸ˜› HAHA πŸ˜› A Must Try!

4. Brownies – 12dhs each – We ordered two of them, Pretzel brownie and Coconut Brownie, both the brownies were so ooey goey and chocolatey. They weren’t too sweet and very soft to bite in. A Must Try!

5. Blueberry Cheesecake – 28dhs – My friend and I enjoyed the cheesecake and it was gone in seconds! The cheesecake wasn’t too sweet and had the proper taste of blueberry!

6. Sukkar Puffs12dhs-100dhs (as per pieces) – This is the new edition to their new menu, they have 6 flavors and they’re chocolate, vanilla, pistachio, rose, saffron and blueberry. I dint like them, may be because the filling tasted a little too buttery for my liking. They look lovely though!

7. Berry Shake – 48dhs –Β  My friend was very brave and she went for their Berry shake and I kid you not, the shake was HUGE!! She absolutely enjoyed her shake and we had to takeaway the shake as it was huge and we got the shake in two big cups, because it wouldn’t fit in one! haha πŸ˜›

8. Lotus Latte25dhs –Β  I played safe and went for their Lotus Latte, this coffee was really good to cut all the sweetness we had. I would surely recommend this if you’re a lotus biscoff lover too!

Service – Very quick service with very friendly staff

On the Pocket – Surely a little expensive on the pocket if you alone are going to spend so much on desserts but as I always tell, go in groups and split the amount between your friends! You’ll also get to try different desserts rather than only one πŸ˜€

Overall – I look at myself coming back here for the tremendously delicious Milk Cakes, if not alone then with family and friends. πŸ˜€ The place is a little small as they’re a Dessert branch of Logma, you can also sit down at Logma have your mains from there and order your desserts from Sukkar. The service, dessert, ambience, seating, staff everything is great! There is free parking and wifi at the Box Park, so you’re sorted with those two also πŸ˜€ Do check them out if you have sweet teeth like I do πŸ˜€

You can also check their menu out on Sukkar Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato , they also do full size cakes for events, you can check that out too πŸ˜€

Hope you enjoyed my blog because I absolutely enjoyed writing it and having all the sweetest πŸ˜€ I was on a sugar rush by the end of the tasting, haha πŸ˜› See you all until my next blog! Stay Awesome and Stay Foodie πŸ˜€

Mission Burger: Big Smoke Burgers

I wanted to go to this place from a very long time and I finally got to go to Big Smoke Burgers this weekend! As Ramadan is going on they open at Iftar, they do takeaways from 6:30pm too in Ramadan. You can always call them up and check it out! They’re located at the Box Park, Al Safa.

Box Park, Al Safa, Dubai.

They’ve a lot of options if you’re a non vegetarian but that isn’t the same if you’re a vegetarian! You can choose your toppings whether you want the Classic toppings that is Iceberg Lettuce, Tomato, Red Onion, Pickles, Mayonnaise, Ketchup and Dijon Mustard or from their Signature toppings which is Caramelised Onions, Roasted Red Peppers, Avocado, Sauteed Mushroom and Coleslaw and you just have to pay extra 5dhs for that. They’ve a wide range of their Signature burgers too, you can choose from that and pay according to how many ounce burger do you want, they’ve 2oz, 4oz and 6oz burgers.

Left: Cheese burger 4oz with Coke. Right: Veggie Burger 60z, Small Fries and Coke.

I opted for their Veggie Burger 6oz with the Classic Toppings, the patty was a normal potato, carrot, onion and peas with herbs and spices patty. It’s definitely a normal potato patty but the taste was way better than a normal potato patty because of the spices they had used and the classic toppings! I was a little disappointed about one thing and that was when I took my 1st bite my burger became a mess, the patty kept coming out with every bite, the bun was a little smaller comparing to the patty so the patty kept coming out or it can be that I don’t know how to eat a burger properly, haha πŸ˜› No, really can be either of those πŸ˜› I’m not a messy eater so I kind of dislike when things get messier, but at least the burger tasted good! Veggie Burger is for 30dhs.

Can we all take a moment and thank god for french fries or the person who thought of french fries??? This by far is my most favourite french fries I’ve had in a very long time, I’m not even kidding! They’re hand cut french fries and I think they’re fried for a little longer because they’re just so crispy from the outside but the best thing is that it hasn’t lost the softness from inside even after it’s fried for longer time!! Loved it, I would go back from some fries with any doubt! The french fries is for 15dhs (small).

Don’t forget to order some Mayonnaise to dip your fries and even if you love Tabasco sauce like I do then you can mix some ketchup and Tabasco together and make your own Tomato Chilli Sauce! πŸ˜€

IMG_8910

French Fries: Hand Cut- Small.

Soft drinks are for 12dhs (pricy) but are refillable so you can get your refills how many ever time you want! I barely refilled it ones because the glass was so huge. πŸ˜›

If you’re buying everything together then it can be a little pricy for you but hey sharing, that’s where you can even eat what you want and pay half of it. πŸ˜‰

The staff was friendly and helpful so that’s a good thing! The ambience is pretty good, I really liked the interior and the seating inside and out! They’ve a rustic wall also in there, be careful with the wall though! πŸ˜› Good place to chill with friends.. Do come a little earlier if you’ve a car because finding for a parking in the front side would be difficult, but I think Box Park has parking on the back side too.

Hope my review was any helpful for you, enjoy your time and do let me know how did you like Big Smoke Burgers! Don’t forget to follow my food journey, I’m sure you’ll enjoy it!

Have a great day ahead, Stay Healthy and Stay Foodie! πŸ˜€

Operation: Falafel

Operation: Falafel is a modern take on authentic Arabic street food with a simple setup and with an open kitchen. I’ve heard so much good about them from probably everyone who has been to this place and I wanted to try Operation: Falafel ever since then. I had been to their Box Park branch and they have almost 5 branches and 2 are coming soon near you!

The Box Park Branch.

Story Time: We friends usually plan out where to go for lunch/dinner before a day or two and when it’s all decided, I always go and check the menu 1st and find for the best thing I want to have (Like 100 times I check their menu,haha) and then make my mind about that, the same happened over here also. Is it just me or you also do this?? Don’t be shy to accept it, haha. Okay let’s talk about the food πŸ˜›

image5 (2)

(Top: Shawarma Sandwich, Sharwarma Saj Platter. Bottom: Kaboos, Stuffed Falafel Platter.)

I was so looking forward to have their Falafel Platter, they’ve two of them in falafel.Β 1) Falafel Platter, just the regular 6 falafels with kaboos (arabic bread/pita bread), hummus (boiled chickpea blended with tahini, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice and salt made into a paste), tahini (sesame seed paste blend with lemon juice and salt made into a sauce), fresh veggies and pickles, For 19dhs.

2) Stuffed Falafel, I opted for this one because why not?? I’ve never had a stuffed falafel and I was really keen to try it out, the difference between the regular and stuffed falafel was only the falafel, but that was a big difference because you get 4 huge falafels (which you can barely finish) and they’re stuffed with a mix of foul beans, tomato and onion with Arabic spices. Who would even think of making Stuffed Falafels?? Opernation: Falafel surely did. A very filling platter, you would surely enjoy it if you like Falafel like I do! Stuffed Falafel is for 20dhs.

The only thing I dint like was the kaboos which comes along the platter, it’s really stale and cold. I would prefer the kaboos they make and serve fresh and hot! That’s the best thing, as you finish them or even if they get a bit cold they change it for you and serve you their hot kaboos out of their wood fired oven!! I would eat them all day, hahaha

Stuffed Falafel Platter

We ordered a lot of things and one of them was their Zataar and Cheese Manakesh, they’re a little on the pricy side. But byΒ this point we all were so full but a slice or two of Manakeesh won’t harm anyone, Am I right or Am I right? Haha! Proper amount of Zaatar was put, usually at some places they over put the Zataar that you can barely taste any cheese, but that wasn’t over here! Zataar and Cheese Manakesh is for 15dhs.

Zataar and Cheese Manakesh

Even after ordering so much food we ordered some french fries, because hey fries before guys, haha πŸ˜› ( that was a bad joke, but that’s the truth :P) Crunchy and soft french fries! I even took a bite from my friends Fiery Falafel Sandwich tasted good, it had their crunchy falafels, tahini, shatta (tamato and chilli paste) and pickles in a saj bread. Fiery Falafel Sandwich is for 14dhs.

One thing that actually annoys me a lot is the price of the soft drinks, the can says 1.50dhs then why do they charge us so much???? Makes me mad all the time!! We ordered 2 of them and shared, 1 can costed us for 8dhs. I know a lot of places cost more than this but still it’s really pricy, isn’t it? I would be fine if it was refillable, nevertheless I had a great time!

The staff Β was attentive and friendly too, good environment and ambience. They’ve a lot of seating inside and outside, parking can be a issue if you come at a peak time, so yeah! My absolute favourite was the Stuffed Falafel Platter, get your hands on them soon!! I’m going back soon.

Don’t forget to follow me for some yummy food journey. Hope you have a great weekend, Happy Thursday and Ramadan Kareem to all of you ones again! Stay blessed and healthy!!
