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.

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

Very good authentic punjabi food, good staff and not too difficult to find them! They also do home delivery. And surely looking to come back with other friends, totally recommend it!

Gioia Italian Restaurant – Fairmont Ajman

I was lucky to be a part of Hyperlink Media’s first bloggers event which happened last week at the Fairmont Ajman, a big thank you to their lovely co founder Nihara for the invite at the newly relaunched Gioia Italian Restaurant.

IMG_7021

I had a great time meeting some awesome sauce bloggers, Let’s getting talking about the awesome sauce food too πŸ˜‰

IMG_6961

We started with some appetizers –  for the vegetarians they had a vegetarian platter that had,

1)  Mozzarella Di Buffala Alla Caprese – This dish had tomatoes, basil and the mozzarella cheese and this dish was my favorite, you can guess why eh? πŸ˜›

2) Insalat Averdure Miste Con Formaggi Di Capelli – Okay, let me break it down for you about the dish, it was a mixed green salad which was mixed with some goat cheese, cherry tomatoes and some aged balsamic. I dint like the goat cheese *surprise*, I thought I liked all the cheeses but I was wrong when I tasted the goat cheese πŸ˜› other than that it was good πŸ˜€

3). Crema Di Broccoli Al Gorgonzola E Crostini – Broccoli soup with some gorgonzola soup, really liked the soup because it was creamy and cheesyy πŸ˜€ it was a win πŸ˜€ I have started to like broccoli soup, a lot lately πŸ˜› Must Try πŸ˜€

IMG_3169

So we were told we could choose any drinks from the menu we want,

IMG_3192

I went for the classic Strawberry Mojito, Oh so refreshing and so good in taste too! An absolute recommendation πŸ˜€ A Must Try!

IMG_3190

Before we got our main “Mains” we got to try their wood fire baked PIZZAAAAA!! haha yess!! We were served with 3 pizza’s, which was the Quattro Formaggi ( 4 cheese obvio!) , Zingara (The veg one) and the last was Capricciosa (Pepperoni Pizza) and 3 out of 2 of them were the one I could eat, I was over the moon to have two options! Haha πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

IMG_3174

Okay, I love cheese a lot, but without a doubt my favourite was the Zingara, so cheesy and right amount of cheese and properly cooked veggies πŸ˜€ Zingara is a Must Try! πŸ˜€

IMG_3183

We were served with 2 veg mains and both were pasta’s, all the pasta’s at Gioia Restaurant are homemade and the pasta chosen that day were the Casarecce pasta. I have never tried the Casarecce pasta and they were actually so good. 

The two pasta dishes we had were the Arabiatta pasta and Alfredo Pasta. (I’m sorry for not knowing the right name of the dish)

IMG_7075

My favorite was the Arabiatta pasta as they were really flavorful, had the right amount of sauce, spices and. Alot if cheese on the top! 😁

IMG_3201

Can we talk about the crazy good desserts we ended our day with?? There were freaking 3 good desserts ❀ πŸ˜€

IMG_3239Espresso Frozen Parafait with Coffee glee and chocolate soup

The 3 desserts were Espresso Frozen Parafait with Coffee glee and chocolate soup, Hazelnut Mousseline Napoline with Mascopone cream and peach campote and last but not the least Manjari Molten Chocolate and Caramelized Popcorn Gelato, Compressed Strawberries.

IMG_3206Hazelnut Mousseline Napoline with Mascopone cream and peach campote

My favorite out all 3 was the Molten Chocolate cake because of the ooey gooey chocolate and the caramel ozzing out the cake! The gelato served was so good too! πŸ˜€

IMG_3246

I had an awesome friday with all the great bloggers, Gioia has great service and very friendly staff, If you’re dinning in at the Gioia Restaurant do ask for Omar as your server! He was great πŸ˜€

We lastly had a tour of the Hotel and got to see their Penthouse at the 14th floor and it was damn huge, a 2 story penthouse!! It was like a dream house anybody could ask for πŸ˜€  I’ve attached a picture of the view from the penthouse for you to get a lil jealous of me, Haha πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

IMG_3262

Thank You so much Hyperlink Media for such a lovely invite and really looking forward to join you for more bloggers meet πŸ˜€

Stay Tuned for more blogs with me, till then stay awesome and stay foodie 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!

Zahrat Al Madina Restaurant, Best Falafel Joint-Ajman

We’ve been going to Zahart Al Madina Restaurant since a decade or more and this place has never failed wowing me with their Falafel Sandwich!! Anybody who loves Falafel sandwich/wrap should surely visit them because you’re for sure missing something yummy, they make the best falafel sandwiches/wraps. They serve Indian, Pakistani and Arabic Cuisine. I personally have tasted nothing other than their very well known Falafel Sandwich, Falafel, Samosa and Onion Bhajiya. The location is a bit tricky so please check the directions to this place on Zomato, I’m sure that will help you and you’ll love the food just like I do!

Picture Courtesy: Zomato.

Even after they’re located in Ajman we don’t mind driving through the Sharjah traffic because literally their Falafel Sandwiches are so good, like I told in the beginning I’ve been coming here for more than a decade, the thing that is changed is the restaurants interior and location that’s it. It’s so crazy that the sandwich tastes just so good and exactly same every time I go. They make them just in front of you so you can even see how they make your food through the glass window.

733eb2479da86b4cd8e11398cbc91885_1434060170

Falafel Sandwich

TheΒ Falafel SandwichΒ is made in a kaboos/pita bread and has tahini sauce, shatta paste (red tomato and chilli paste), cucumber, pickled carrots, tomatoes, cabbage and their 2 huge Falafels. One sandwich is for onlyΒ 2.50dhs, yess that’s it!! They always make them fresh for every person who orders and we always have a big order because we usually take few Β for the next day also, haha πŸ˜› I can’t help it. Just store them in the fridge and reheat again and voila you’re ready to eat them! πŸ˜€ I’ve eaten Falafels at a lot of places, nobody has beaten their taste, them falafel have a proper authentic taste and are just so good!! 1 falafel is for 0.50fils.

The taste hasn’t changed until today, the same flavours and the same taste! They do have seating inside so you can sit inside or take a takeaway and have it in the car or by the beach as the beach is near by the place, we usually prefer takeaways. The staff is very friendly and shows great hospitality. They’re really pocket friendly when it comes to food.

Parking isn’t an issue at all because there is a huge parking lot behind so you can park there. Don’t forget to try this place if you’re around this area and do let me know if you’ve been going here just like me and even if you’ve your own favourite falafel sandwich place in Dubai or U.A.E.

Rajasthan Al Malaki -Vegetarian Thali Restaurant in Sharjah

I was going through my fellow bloggers blog and read about Rajasthan Al Malaki and since then I kept bugging my parents to take me here and they did. HAHA πŸ˜›

IMG_7197

We took theΒ Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road to Sharjah and we were pretty lucky to get no traffic towards Sharjah, I’ll input the location in the end of the blog, so check it out!

They’re usually crowded on weekends so if you can then don’t forget to book a table, even after booking a table we had to wait for almost 45mins. I would suggest you to take a reservation on a weekend.

The restaurant isn’t too big and they’ve tried to fit pretty lot of tables so you feel really restricted with your hands, the place has a proper Rajasthan touch to everything, whether that’s the furniture, paintings, food, etc. Rajasthan Al Malaki serves Rajasthani and Gujarati cuisines in a Thali. Thali is a full course meal where different types of food varieties are served in a round plate.

IMG_7203

They serve 2 types of Thali’s 1) Week Day, Regular Thali which is for 25dhs and 2) Weekend, Royal Thali which is for 30dhs.Kids under 8 half price(for thali) They even have Ala Carte, chaats and sweet counter too. Let’s get reviewing about the food. πŸ˜€

IMG_7198

I’m surely writing this really late, but hey I’m still writing yeah? Haha sorry πŸ˜›

We were served 4 farsan, 2 sweets, 4 vegetables, 3dals, 3 types of rotis, 2 types of rice, 2 types of salad.

They started with the Farsan (snacks/starer) Dal Batti Churma, Dahi Vada, Shami Kabab, Khaman Dhokla. It was the best Dal batti churma I’ve ever had, the churma was so soft yet not dry and the dal had all proper spices to it, loved it! Dahi vada, literally my second favourite farsan, I’m very picky with my Dahi vada and they tasted so good, as you put in your mouth they dissolve right than second, not too sweet and really tasty and fresh. I wasn’t too found of the shami kabab because they tasted kind of under cook. They dint have Gobi Patra in the menu as they were finished so we were served with Khaman Dhokla, umm they were fine, kind of dry otherwise was fine. They’re served with Spicy and Sweet Chutney.

Next comes the Vegetables/Sabzi’s Paneer Jodhpuri, Methi Mutter Malai, Gatta Curry and Aloo Lasaniya, personally all are my favourite sabzi’s but I was really looking forward for Gatta Curry I love Gatta Curry soo much and they nailed it!! The gatta wasn’t too dry and hard so that was a good thing and the gravy was tasty too, not too sweet and not spicy either. Paneer Jodhpuri, Methi Mutter Malai and Aloo Lasaniya were great too, liked all of them, tasted great!

Next comes the Dals, Rajasthani Dal, Mithi Dal (sweet dal) and Jodhpuri Kadhi, when it comes to dal I barely have any, don’t ask me why πŸ˜› I’m so much busy eating other things that I always forget the dal πŸ˜› All of them tasted good, I personally liked the Rajasthani Dal and Jodhpuri Kadhi because it tasted more like what my Mom makes, so yeah that was a win for me. I don’t like sweet dal a lot so Mithi Dal dint work for me.

Next comes the Rotis, they’ve Phulka Roti, Masala Puri and Makai ke Roti, what I like about Thali places are that they do have a lot of varieties but they don’t serve more than anything the person need so it’s not a waste. They make small puri’s, and roti’s and that too fresh and hot. Who doesn’t like garma garam roti? Ah love ittt!!! Soft rotis and puris are a win for me!

The Rice, they’ve two choices in rice, Kashmiri Pulav and Khichadi, Ummm na na dint like either of them! Khichadi was too runny and Kashmiri Pulav were too spicy and had a lot of Khada Masala which is one thing I hate the most, so dint like either of them. Or may be I was too full by this time that I dint like either of them, you never know πŸ˜›

And now comes my most favourite part and that is the Sweets πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ They had 3 sweets, Churma, Moong dal halwa and Β Fruit custard. Loved all of them, literally I went mad for the Moong Dal Halwa, so soft not too sweet and lots of ghee πŸ˜› πŸ˜€ I’m not a fruit custard person but this one was pretty good won my heart with the 1st spoon. Churma was good too, the best thing was that neither of them were too sweet, loved that!

Oh how can I forget the Chaas (butter milk) loved it, but don’t drink it too much otherwise you’ll get full too fast before you eat anything. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€

IMG_7211

Above: Royal Thali

The waiters are so well taught their signs and they’re great servers!! The ambience is good but can get very noisy because the place isn’t too big I would say they’re mid sized. Parking isn’t an issue you can get it in front of the restaurant.

Mission Burger: Mooyah

Mooyah is an All-American concept bringing the flavours of Texan burgers to Dubai. They’ve two branches in Dubai, 1 is at Ibn Battuta Mall and 2nd is at Al Wasl Square, Al Safa. I’ve been twice to their Al Wasl Square branch and I had both good and bad experience. Let’s get reviewing. πŸ˜€

58c94a38580245faf2b749abbda83272Picture Courtesy: Zomato (This is the Al Wasl Square, Al Safa.)

As you all know I’ve been trying out some great burgers and Mooyah has been one of them, Mooyah is like the burger version of subway but better and a little unhealthy too, haha! πŸ˜›

You can choose what you want to have from their Signature Burgers or you can even Build Your Own Burger! I opted for building my own burger and I was all excited to build my burger because you can add whatever you want and as much ever you want. I chose my bread, patty and following, I went for the white bread, black bean veggie patty, added few veggies like lettuce, tomato, cucumber, some pickles, onions and grilled onions too (yes I like my onions a lot and yes I do have chewing gum right after I’m done. :P) Then comes the sauces, I went for their signature sauce the Mooyah Sauce, Mayo and some Ranch. For cheese I chose the American cheese, everything together tasted so good. Don’t forget to add some grilled onions to your burger it adds the crunchiness to your burger and some more flavour too πŸ˜€

I’ve have had a black bean patty few a little times and got really disappointed about them ever since. So I had a 50-50 mind, but at Mooyah you can taste all the spices, garlic, onion, chilli everything in that one bite you take of your burger and I’ve actually regained my faith in a black bean patty, haha. The patty wasn’t dry and wasn’t soggy either and was properly cooked and freshly made!! Oh you can also get a little adventurous and even add double patties to your burger which is for 33dhs, I went for the single patty :P. My burger was for 24dhs.

Black Bean Burger, Loaded Fries with Cola.

It’s time to talk about my favourite part and that is the FRIES, haha you know how much I love my fries, don’t you?? I’m sure you do! πŸ˜›

I went for the loaded fries because why not? πŸ˜› No, actually one of their staff suggested me to try the loaded fries and I was like yes sure why not. πŸ˜› I excluded the bacon bits, you can add them if you’re a non vegetarian! Loaded fries has loads of aged creamy cheddar cheese sauce drizzled with some ranch dressing and topped with jalapenos. Yes, its a bit pricy but if you love fries then you can surely try them! Loaded fries is for 22dhs.

I even tasted the Onion Rings, oh my lord! So crunchy and so good. I even had the cheese fries from my friends and they were as good as the loaded fries. Onion Rings is for 12dhs and Cheese Fries is for 16dhs. Their soft drinks are refillable and for 10dhs.

The second time I had been to Mooyah I had a kind of not good experience, my burger was all breaking through, patty tasted as good as the last time, but the bread was a little stale if I’m not wrong because it was really crumbly and breaking with every bite I took. Fresh breads don’t crumb as much as stale bread do. I don’t like my burger breaking with every bite I take, then things start getting to messy and all. But nevertheless there is always a bad experience at a good place sometimes, isn’t it? That’s what I think.

What I really liked about their burger is that they’re really filling and yes like every other joint everything together can get a little pricy but if you and your friends are going you can always share, Am I right or Am I right? Haha πŸ˜‰

If you’re going to their Ibn Battuta Mall Β branch then they’re located at the China Court and if you’re going to their Al Wasl Square branch please be careful with your turns, you can mess up a little because of the construction! The parking can be a problem in the front but there are some parking’s at the back too, so you can park there!! The staff was great, friendly and humble! Lovely ambience, they’ve seating’s outside also so you can enjoy that when the weather is a little cooler!
