Dillicious – Al Karama

Dillicious is the new restaurant in town, just 1-2months old and they’re located in Karama. They’ve made the whole restaurant into a modern indian dhaba and I love it! They’ve literally have a trucks front body inside the restaurant, say whaattt!! :O

IMG_3443

I had visited them along my foodie blogger friend Aditi πŸ˜€ Also thank you to Stylecode Media for the invite πŸ˜€ Let’s get to the food, shall we? πŸ˜€

IMG_5132

Beverages – Strawberry Mojito – 12dhs – I was very surprised with how good the mojito actually tasted, I was debating before the mojito came. Not too sweet nor too sour, just perfect the way it should be. Must Try!

IMG_5133

Starter – Veg Kebab Platter – 35dhs – The platter consisted of Stuffed mushrooms – were well done and had some cheese stuffing in it. Stuffed potatoes – I liked the outer layer which was crispy and flavourful, dint really like the stuffing. Achari Soya Chaap – One of the best chaaps I have had, I’m a very big fan of soya chaps and these tasted excellent, the tanginess of the achar made the dish taste even more better. Paneer Tikka – Very soft and properly tandoor’d, nobody can go wrong with paneer tikka. Seekh Kebab – very soft from that inside and crispy from the outside. loved it!

IMG_5142

Samosa Chaat – 10dhs – ONE OF THE BEST SAMOSA CHAAT IN TOWN!! Literally so good, very simple made but so so good. The dish dint have the masalai chole, just boiled chole’s, green chutney, red chutney, curd, onions, tomatoes and topped with salted boondi. such simple ingredients but a very hearty dish! Worth the amount. A Must Try

Mains – Ordered 1 sabzi, 1 dal, roti basket and biryani (veg options)

Paneer Tikka Tawa Masala – 30dhs – The paneer is tandoor’d in their bhatti and the gravy is made right in front of you in their open kitchen on the tawa, proper dhaba style! The gravy is a brown gravy which isn’t too runny and is properly coated onto the paneer, not too spicy and not bland at all!

IMG_5143

Dal Dhaba – 22dhs – We wanted to have their Dal Makhani but the manager suggested us to try their Dal Dhaba and surprisingly this dish was a bomb.com! It is made almost like dal makhani but had a mix of 5 dals, very very good tasting dish. You should surely order Dal Dhaba. A Must Try!

IMG_5146

Roti Basket – 24dhs – The basket consisted of 4-5 different kinds of roti’s and they were very soft and not rubbery. Also very reasonable for the amount of roti’s you get, I always order the roti basket at the restaurants because you get more quantity and you pay less. A Must Try!

IMG_5145

Paneer Tikka Biryaani – 24dhs – I freaking loved the biryaani, so so flavourful and delicious! Every scoop you eat you can taste the masala’s and the tons of saffron. The best part is they make the same base rice for both veg and non veg biryani, so you’re not missing on anything! A Must Try!

IMG_5148

Dessert – We ordered 2 desserts

Gulab Jamun with Ice Cream – 14dhs – I wasn’t a big fan the gulab jamun as I hate elaichi in my jamun and these had a lot of strong flavour of elaichi, so it was a miss for me.

IMG_3439

Ras Malai – 12dhs – Nothing wow, very mediocre.

IMG_5161

Staff and Service – Friendly staff and quick service!

One the Pocket – Pretty Pocket friendly, I look at myself visiting them soon in the future πŸ˜€

Overall – I really liked everything overall, the food is phenomenal, as we couldn’t finish all the food in one seating we did a take away took it home for my parents, and I kid you not they LOVED the food! The ambience and seating is really chilled. I loved the art wall and the truck, just the highlight of the restaurant πŸ˜€ The staff and the service is upto the mark. Do not panic about the parking as you’re going to find a lot of parking in this area and also it’s a C zone πŸ˜€

The Bhukkad Cafe

Bhukkad Cafe is the newest place everyone is literally hanging around! My friend Aditi was invited and she took me and Shabina/Shabosphere for tasting on Women’s Day! This place is beautifully interior-ed, love the ambience and seating. But every place has some hits and misses, so did bhukkad cafe! Let’s get talking about the food and our order!

It being International Women’s Day, they were serving a glass of Jalebi Milkshake to every Woman in the house, that was a very sweet gesture! Umm, sadly I dint like the shake at all, very watery and buttery. The first sip makes your whole mouth very buttery, that’s something I dislike the most, Jalebi Shake was a miss for me!

IMG_5092

Bhukkad Cafe, doesn’t have anything like starters or mains. We started off with Chau Mean.

Chau Mean – 26dhs – Chau mean was the dish between hit and miss, the dish was very bland, no spice or salt was added. We added some chutney from our sandwich which made it taste it a little better. Chau Mean was served on Spade, yes the one which we use in gardening, I personally loved the presentation, very quirky and different!

IMG_5098Top – Chau Mean , Below – Chilli Chicken

Mithibai Grill Sandwich – 26dhs – I have never had the original mithibai grill sandwich but what I had here at Bhukkad Cafe was really tasty, flavorful and loaded with cheese and served with potato chips! A Must Try

IMG_5100

Pizza Fries – 22dhs – Them fries were also loaded with cheese on the top, the fries had pizza sauce, few jalapeno’s and the rest I forgot πŸ˜› sorry about that πŸ˜›Β  I feel the quantity as per the price pretty less and if the dish was baked or had melted cheese or a little cooked cheese would taste even better. I get they’re trying to recreate the dishes you get in India food stalls but this was my little thought to the dish.

IMG_5101

Pull Out Bread – 32dhs – This was my personal favorite and I was really looking forward for this dish since I saw some of my friends posting them pictures on instagram (you can also follow me Instagram – @hemangiramani , self promo πŸ˜› ) let’s get back to the dish πŸ˜› haha πŸ˜› So, it’s slab of small pav bread, they scoop the top and add finely chopped capsicums, onions, tomatoes, corn and mix them in butter an some masala and which is also topped with cheese, oregano and chili flakes. Only the sad part was that the cheese dint pull out as it had cold by the time we finished taking our pictures and all πŸ˜› A Must Try if you’re a cheese lover!

GQII7970

Chaat Platter – 40dhs – Umm, very expensive for the quantity I’m getting and also I dint like either of the chaats, mostly all of them were very spicy or had no proper spice. The chaat platter was a miss for me!

Mac n Tikka – 36dhs – Bringing the Italian Pasta with an Indian Paneer/Chicken Tikka twist! This dish would taste epic if they used a little less garam masala to it, the masala over took the whole dish and you could barely taste anything else, and on the other hand the normal white sauce pasta was really good, that was a win for me, otherwise the tikka masala gravy was a very big let down.

IMG_3021

Brownie Shake – 28dhs – Even this shake was a little watery to me, whenever the word shake comes to mind I always think of kind of thick shake, tasted a lot like chocolate milkshake, it was okay. All points to the presentation!

LKUK9790

For the desserts we went for a cake and ice creams –

Sticky Toffee Cake – 22dhs – I personally ain’t a big sticky toffee cake fan because the dessert consist of dates, it’s not that I don’t like dates but I do not like it in my desserts warm. That’s too me TMI πŸ˜› Let’s get back to the dish πŸ˜› Overall the cake tasted very soft, moist and not too sweet, the cake was served with ice cream on the top. A Must Try!

Ice Cream – Gulkaand 24dhs and Paan Vanilla – 22dhs – Both the ice creams tasted extremely good, very flavorful and just the same way as they would taste in real. I’m not sure what they served us in was their regular size of serving or it was only for us, but if that was their regular portion of serving for the ice cream then, bro that’s extremely EXPENSIVE!

IMG_5129

Service and Staff – Staff was a little confused with few of our orders, they kept coming and asking would you still need this or forget our order. They need to work with that and also the service was alright.

On the Pocket – Pretty pretty expensive on the pocket, if you’re a middle class earning person like I’m, then I don’t think this the ideal place for you! The amount they are charging isn’t right for the quantity they serve. This is my personal thought.

Overall – I loved the ambience, very different and indianised! Few of their dishes were really good be that veg or non veg and some were under the mark, which they need to work on them. They also need to work on their staffs with taking orders and phrasing a question correctly to the customers. You’ll find a lot of parking around the place and luckily its the ‘C’ zone so you ain’t paying a lot on your parking. They’re almost all the time full and there is a lot of people in waiting too, so you better call them up before you leave to check if there aren’t enough people when you reach there. This was my honest review about the place, pls do not think I was bashing the cafe in anyways! These were my personal thoughts on what all I was served.

Blaze Burger

I had Blaze Burger on my list ever since they opened in UAE. The interiors and the graffiti art on the walls are really unique and quirky, love it πŸ˜€ They’ve pretty Huge portions for everything, so sharing would be the best thing!

IDMB4703[1]

I had gone along with my 3 girl friend bloggers and we had the best time πŸ˜€

We had a lot of food, but as I’m writing about the vegetarian food it’s not going to look a lot, haha πŸ˜›

Let’s talk about the food, shall we? πŸ˜€

Drinks

Blaze on the beach – 20dhs – The drink was really refreshing and you could taste all the flavors, sourness of the cranberry and orange and tad bit of sweetness from the peach.

IMG_4770

American Mojito – 20dhs – The classic virgin mojito, you can never go wrong with the classic mojito but surely make it taste better just like this one. A Must Try!

IMG_2718

Fries – We went over board with the fries, but they’re sooo goood!! Like all of them were so so good, I’m going back for all their fries soon! πŸ˜€ I’m sure you’ve heard of fries before guys, haha πŸ˜› πŸ˜€

A post shared by Hemangi (@hemangiramani) on

Cajun Scoopers – 17dhs – They’re basically potato fries but made into scoops, fried and sprinkled with their secret cajun spices, and you get 1 dip along with the fries. You can choose your dip, I don’t remember the dip but these fries were so damn crunchy but soft from the inside! This was the first time I have tried such fries and they were damn delicious! A Must Try

IMG_4777.JPG

Reloaded Fries – 24dhs – The fries were cooked perfectly, loads of cheese is put and drizzled with their secret but delicious sauce and topped with lot of Jalapenos. You’ll have to pay 2dhs extra for the Jalapenos though, which is absolutely worth as it changes the taste of the dish totally to another level! A Must Try

IMG_E1907

Angry Fries – 28dhs – The name says it all yeah ?? Angry fries, HAHA!! πŸ˜€ So, the fries were topped with tons of cheese, their chili gravy sauce and then with lots of capsicums and jalapenos. If you’re okay with eating spicy food then you’ll surely enjoy these fries πŸ˜€ A Must Try!

Show me a person who doesn’t like french fries and we’ll swap lies! πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸŸ . . . . . This is the spicy Angry Fries from @blazeburgers , damn this place is so so good!! Loved their fries 😍 only if they had more vegetarian burger options, phir toh sonai pai suhaga hojata! πŸ˜‹πŸ”πŸŸ Review should be up sooon! @zomatouae πŸ“πŸ˜ Thank you @blazeburgers for having me and my friends today, we surely had a great time with great food!😍😁 Also I’m wearing my Pom Pom Sandals πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ˜πŸ˜ . . . . . #BlazeBurgerDubai #JBR #todayspost #foodie #dubaifoodie #dubaifoodiebloggers #dubaifoodiebybirth #uaefoodie #dubairestaurant #uae #zomatouae #zomato #uaefoodblogger #burger #angryfries #frenchfries #eatoutdxb #dxbreakfasts #coldturkeydxb #thewalk #noicefood #instafood #pompomsandals #lovefood #foodielover #okaybyeeee #maxfoodshot

Crazy Fries – 28dhds – These fries come with Bacon, but we told them to minus the bacon because none of us eat bacon, but the fries just topped with their awesomeness sauce, yes that’s their sauce’s name. πŸ˜€ The fries are then topped with some fried onion, delicious! A Must Try!

ozxp3483.jpg

Mains – They sadly have only 1 vegetarian option but that one option is my favorite and that’s the Portobello Mushroom Burger.

Portobello Mushroom – 42dhs – Basically you make your own burger, from breads to sauces to extra toppings you choose everything (you’ll have to pay extra 4dhs for each extra toppings). If you’re a health freak you can choose lettuce as your bun too. I went for the white bun and the sauce I chose was Heaven and Hell, I’m sure can make out from the name how spicy would the sauce be πŸ˜› They don’t even add the Nuclear Mustard Sauce in your burger just because it’s that spicy. I tried the sauce with 1 cajun fries and instantly needed water πŸ˜› But without the sauce the burger tasted really bland so I ended up spreading some Nuclear Mustard Sauce and Spicy Mayo. After that the burger tasted great πŸ˜€

Desserts – We went GAGA over the desserts, as usual πŸ˜› They make their cakes in the pan they serve in, the desserts are HOT and right out of the oven.

Me – I can’t eat anymore, I’m full! Server – Do you want any β€œDessert” Also Me – YAAASSS!! πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆπŸ˜ I don’t have a sweet tooth, I have sweet teethπŸ˜πŸ™ˆ . . . . . I had two fav desserts from @blazeburgers , the chocolaty Gooey Skillet and the delicious Cookie Blondie! They were oh so good with the ice cream, chocolates and the chocolate sauce! 😍🀀 @zomatouae . . . . . #BlazeBurgerDubai #JBR #todayspost #foodie #dubaifoodie #dubaifoodiebloggers #dubaifoodiebybirth #uaefoodie #dubairestaurant #uae #zomatouae #uaefoodieblogger #dessertlover #getinmybelly #chocolate #dubaidessertlover #eatoutdxb #dxbreakfasts #coldturkeydxb #noicefood #lovefood #foodielover #okaybyeeee

A post shared by Hemangi (@hemangiramani) on

Gooey Chocolate Skillet – The cake was surely very chocolaty and gooey, very soft and a little too sweet for my liking.

OOLG4111

Cookie Blondie – OMG! This is just a big cookie made in a pan, i loved it! Not too sweet and tasted fantastic with some ice cream and choco chips. My absolute favorite! A Must Try!

BOTW5108[1]

Service and Staff – Very friendly staff and quick with everything. Their service is also super quick. You’ll have to do a self service ordering, once ordered you’ll be handed a table number and then the food is served in no time! πŸ˜€

IMG_4776

On the Pocket – Definitely a little to expensive on your pocket but as I always say go in groups and split, that way you all your friends can try different things and pay equally too! πŸ˜€

Overall – A great experience, but would surely want some more vegetarian burger options because I’m sure everyone is not a mushroom fan, other than everything is great. πŸ˜€ When you’re at Blaze Burger you get a feeling of you’re sitting at an olden days club, love the funkie arts and different kind of seating! Finding a parking would be a little difficult as it’s JBR, but I would suggest you to come in 1 car if you’re 4-5pax. As the parking pricing is a little higher. Parallel parking on the road on weekends is 50dhs for 8hours and on weekdays its 30dhs for 3hours. There is a building parking too which is 10dhs per hour. And if you’re thinking to ditch the car, you can use the tram too as it’s on a walking distance from Blaze Burgers πŸ˜€ They’ve free wifi, outside seating, choose your condiments wall and they’re kids friendly too! πŸ˜€

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˜›

IMG_4871

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˜€

I want to have a good body but also have good desserts! And as usual dessert wins! πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ . . . . . I was on a sweet treat yesterday with these delicious desserts from @sukkaruae , I was literally on a sugar rush, very very high on sugar πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ I absolutely loved the milk cakes and everything else too 😍🀀 Review should be up soon πŸ˜πŸ“ @zomatouae . . . . . #sukkardesserts #boxparkdubai #dessertlover #dubai #uae #duabifoodiebybirth #dubaifoodblogger #uaefoodies #dubaieats #getinmybelly #likeforlike #uaefoodbloggers #dxbreakfasts #eatoutdxb #noicefood #coldturkeydxb #zomatouae #zomato #dubaifoodie #dubaiinfluencer #flatlay #flatlayforever #topshot #dubaidessertlover #khaleejidesserts #emaratisweets #okaybyeee

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!

IMG_4894

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!

IMG_4891

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!

IMG_4876

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!

IMG_4889

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˜›

It is my life goal to open a milkshake shop and name it, β€œThe Yard” πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ˜‹ . . . . . This is the Berry Shake from @sukkaruae and this was freaking huge shake, which @eatwithaditi couldn’t finish πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ If you’re bored of the regular chocolate milkshake, then surely give it a try to this berry milkshake πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ˜ @zomatouae . . . . . #sukkarsweets #boxpark #dessertlover #dubai #uae #dubaifoodiebybirth #dubaifoodieblogger #zomatouae #zomato #uaefoodbloggers #uaefoodie #dubaidessert #eatoutdxb #berryshake #dxbreakfasts #noicefood #foodofdubai #foodindubai #likeforlike #coldturkeydxb #dubaifoodie #getinmybelly #dubaiinfluencer #instalike #okaybyeee

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˜€

Broccoli Pizza & Pasta

I have always passed by Broccoli Pizza & Pasta and never tried their food, how crazy is that? I recently visited their newly opened branch at Jumeriah 3.

IMG_4209Broccoli Pizza and Pasta – Jumeirah 3

Broccoli Pizza and Pasta serves freshly made pizza, pasta, soups, and a lot more, you can also customize your own pasta and pizza.

Let’s see what we ordered, shall we? πŸ˜€

Maybe I don’t need the pizza, maybe the pizza needs me! πŸ€”πŸ˜πŸ• . . . . . The other day I was dinning at @broccolipizzaandpasta with @eatwithaditi , we ordered some broccoli soup, chicken caesar salad, half n half pizza, veg lasagne and Alfredo Sauce Pasta! Out of all, my 3 favourites were the Alfredo Sauce Pasta, Veg Pizza and Broccoli soup! Dint like the veg lasagne as it only had spinach! But Other than that, everything was so tasty! Surely going to visit them for their pasta!😍😁 . . . . . Review should be up next week on my blog and @zomatouae πŸ“πŸ˜ . . . . . #BroccoliPizzaandpastajumeriah3 #newbranch #pastaandpizza #pizzalover #halfnhalfpizza #broccolisoup #salad #foodie #dubai #jumeirah3 #uae #dubaifoodie #dubaifoodiebybirth #dubaifoodblogger #uaefoodblogger #foodblogger #vegetairanblogger #f52grams #food52grams #coldturkeydxb #dubairestaurants #foodindubai #eatoutdxb #zomato #zomatouae #flatlay #foodporn #okaybyeee

Starters –

Broccoli Soup – One of the BEST broccoli soup I have ever had, literallyy!!! Got it right of their soup pot, steaming hot and tasting absolutely out of the world! Very creamy and thick with bits of broccoli and very flavorful! Their soups are always served with garlic bread, the bread was alright, but the soup was really good. A Must Try!

IMG_4191Broccoli Soup

Mains –Β 

Pizza – Half n Half – Vegetable and BBQ Chicken Pizza

Vegetable Pizza – I ain’t kidding you when I’m telling that this pizza was way better than what I have been eating at other pizza joints! Properly cooked, not too hard from the bottom, enough vegetables and cheese, and topped with good amount of seasoning which made everything taste even better! Tasted more like home made, that’s what anybody would like! A Must Try! πŸ˜€

IMG_4193Half n Half Pizza

Pasta –

Fettuccine Pasta in Alfredo Sauce – You can customize your own pasta, you can choose what pasta you would like, your choice of sauce and vegetables/protein you would prefer for your pasta.

IMG_4169You can choose your own pasta

I NEVER order for pasta when I go out, because they always taste so bland. But, broccoli pizza and pasta, totally changed my mind on that. My pasta was so tasty and flavorful, the vegetables were properly cooked, and my pasta was saucy and not dry at all! A Must Try!

IMG_4215Fettuccine Pasta in Alfredo Sauce

Veg Lasagna I wanted to try their veg lasagna, so went for that. It was a FAIL!! Would not advice anybody to try that, until and unless you’re Popeye the sailor man πŸ˜› Haha. The veg lasagna had way too much of spinach or should I say had ONLY spinach, a little bit of cheese and pizza sauce. Um no, dint like it at all. They should work on their veg lasagna.

IMG_4204Veg Lasagna

Drinks – Water, Soft Drinks and Fresh Orange Juice.

IMG_0345Fresh Orange Juice

Service – Fast service, attentive and friendly staff.

On the Pocket – I would say pocket friendly, they’ve combos you can have them and save some money πŸ˜€

Ambience – It’s a small branch, but with good ambience and comfy seating.

IMG_4214

Overall – I would surely go back to Broccoli Pizza and Pasta for my top 3 Must Try, that would be the Broccoli Soup, Alfredo Pasta and Vegetable Pizza, these were a hit for me. They don’t have any desserts, would be great if they could add some desserts, as no meal is over without anything sweet! πŸ˜€

Location – Opposite Medcare Center, Jumeriah 3

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 –

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.

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

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˜€

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˜›

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˜€

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)

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! 😁

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˜€

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˜›
