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)

Ambience

Lovely ambience, good seating and beautiful interior, very energetic and friendly staff! They’ve outdoor seating also, which you can take advantage in this lovely weather πŸ˜€ Wifi is also available with some good punjabi ganai πŸ˜€

IMG_3945
Cool Interior

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.

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

Thank you Hyperlink Media for sorting out my lunch πŸ˜€ finished it in no time πŸ˜€

For now, that’s it from my end, do check out my other reviews if you haven’t πŸ˜€ Stay Awesome and Stay Foodie, Tata! 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˜€

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!

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.

IMG_891611

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.

IMG_8903

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.

IMG_8911 (1)

Veggie Burger 6oz.

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..
