Last week I was invited for a tasting at Baydar. They’re located in Barsha Mall, facing right in front of Barsha Pond Park.
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 😀 Oh btw, you can see Burj Al Arab and Burj Khalifa from Baydar, that’s like icing on the cake 😀 I could go on and on about the view, haha 😛
Let’s talk about the food, shall we 😀
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)
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. 😀 A Must Try!
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!
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.

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!

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 😀
Why are Iphone chargers not called Apple Juice? 🤔😋🙊 . . . . . Oh btw, this is the Fruit Cocktail from @baydar , this was so heavy that you don’t need anything to have along! 😍🙊 . . . . @baydaruae has such gorgeous view and a lovely ambience to the place, surely going back with my daddy. Thank you for having me❤️ @zomatouae . . . . . #Baydaruae #barshamalldubai #dubai #foodblogger #dubaifoodiebybirth #dubaifoodblogger #uaefoodblogger #coldturkeydxb #uae #lebenesefood #lebenesecuisine #foodlover #fruitcocktail #juice #food52grams #food52 #foodindubai #eatlutdxb #zomato #zomatouae #okaybyeee
Fruit Cocktail (25dhs)
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!

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!

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.
Lovely seating with pretty good views and great ambience. Very clean and organised.
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!
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.
Stick around for my blogs 😀 Till then stay awesome and stay foodie 😀
