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!

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!

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!

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˜€

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.

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

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˜€

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˜›

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˜€
