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˜€

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˜€

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!

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!

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!

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˜€

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˜€
