Let’s get to the delicious food! Shall we ? 😀
Complimentary starter – Salty Crackers –Healthy crackers to munch on before we get our hands on the mains! They were a little too salty but other than that, tasted great to me!
Hot Beverages – Hot Chocolate – I don’t drink coffee or tea, um don’t judge me 😛 So, I opted for their Hot Chocolate, not too sweet and not too runny or thick, just the perfect way I like my hot chocolate! A Must Try!
Hot Chocolate and Black Tea
Breakfast – Ricotta Cheese and Mushroom on Sour Bread –Even though the sour bread being a little hard, the ricotta cheese and mushroom did wonders to the dish! The ricotta cheese being a little sweet and the mushrooms sauteed in right amount of salt and spices, made perfectly! A Must Try for the Vegetarians

Chia Pudding – I know chia seeds are very good and healthy for you but I dint like the pudding a lot, the top part where it had fruits and grated coconut tasted really good but after the fruits were all eaten just the chia seeds tasted really bland, probably some more fruits would taste better.
Sides – Parmesan Truffle Fries –Just how I read Mojito and ordered one, the same happened with the fries, haha 😛 I love fries and so did I love these, the fries weren’t soggy at all, crispy and cheesy from the outside and soft from the outside!

Cold Beverage – Strawberry Mojito – I’m sure by now you guys know how much I love me a good mojito! As I was flipping the menu I came across their Strawberry Mojito and couldn’t stop myself from ordering it. I surely did the right thing to ordering the Mojito because, DAMN!! It was so so good and refreshing! The right amount the fruit flavor, sweetness and soda! A Must Try!
No visit to a restaurant is complete without desserts, and these were some fancy and healthy tasting desserts which I thought wouldn’t like but ended loving them! 😀
Desserts – Ube Cupcake – Ube is basically a purple yam, and this dessert is made out of the same, at first I thought I would dislike it because of the yam but surprisingly the cupcake was so soft and moist from the inside and tasted amazing, you can’t even tell it’s made out of yam. The cupcake was topped with ube frosting! A Must Try
Ube Leche Flan –Them desserts are so pretty to eat! Just look at the pictures 😀 This was a ube cake topped with custard and decorated with edible caramel decoration and garnished with some beautiful edible flowers, just can’t get enough on how pretty the desserts looked! A Must Try

Mango Sorbet with Vanilla Ice-cream –Last but not the least, this beautiful looking dessert, mango sorbet and vanilla ice cream surrounded with edible mud with caramelized pecans topped with some fancy decoration. A Must Try

Ambience –I personally love cafe and restaurants which are very peaceful and quiet, it’s just so much better that way and so was Fen, very relaxing or even a great spot to hang out with your friends. Beautiful interiors and historical exteriors with perfect outdoor seating for this lovely winter season!
Service –Pretty quick service with very friendly staff! Marc was great with his service to us! 😀
On the Pocket – They’re on a little expensive side of the page, if you’ve a budget to spend then I wouldn’t recommend this place for you. But, if you don’t have a budget and are looking for a place to chill, then surely check them out!
Overall –I would surely visit them back for the food they served and fantastic service they gave us. It could be a little tricky to find them if you don’t have the gps on, but don’t worry about the parking as they have parking inside the Art Foundation, 1hour – 2.5dhs. When you visit them don’t forget to check out the Sharjah Art Museum, we missed it, but you don’t! 😀 Also Fen is kid friendly, has outdoor seating, and has wifi too. 😀
