Bollywood Dreams At Bol Gappa Restaurant

After a fun filled day at Bollywood parks & Motiongate, my family and I headed to Bol Gappa.  We were famished and ready to devour anything that was bought to us! Coming back the the restaurant, I really loved the décor done, movie posters, dialogues on the wall and such. Does the food do justice? Read further to know.

We started off with Mango lassi, Berry Mojito and Lemon Mint and for starters we were suggested Mexican bhel, paneer diljale and pot pataka. Of the three we unanimously selected pot pataka because it wasn’t spicy and perfect little dumplings were delicious to enjoy!

Our mains consisted of penne pasta in creamy mushroom sauce, vegetable biryani and paneer tikka wrap. All the three were too good in terms of taste and pricing. The mains are portioned heartily! I have never seen a huge bowl of pasta been served for a price as little as AED39. Our jolly server Mr. Raj was a fun person to interact with. His suggestions were spot on and were almost winners (except Mexican bhel which is a spicy affair!)

For desserts we opted for gajar ka halwa spring rolls & banoffee pie.  The banoffee pie presentation would put cafes to shame. Spun sugar works and berries! With only a glitch that this pie lacked the rich cream topping one would generally expect in a regular banoffee pie. Nevertheless it was delicious! Another beauty was the gajar ka halwa spring rolls which were mindblowing. That is the exact word that comes to my mind when I think of this dessert. Taste was almost as good as churros and serving it with vanilla ice cream.. Hallelujah!

Burger Time At Blaze Burgers

Blaze Burger is a famous burger place all the way from Bahrain. They serve the hottest sauces and the most delicious shakes! Does this vegetarian survive in a place for meat lovers? Read to know..

My guest opted for beef burger while I opted for the only vegetarian option the portabella mushroom burger in brown bun. Topped with nuclear mustard, my burger was super spicy! I also tried a similar combination in lettuce which was a decent choice. We tried angry fries which were again topped with spicy chilli paste and jalepenos. I stuck to simple cheese fries because I cannot bear too much spicy food. Along with burgers we opted for lemon mint drink and apple mojito, both were refreshing! My maltersers milkshake was heavenly and I would definitely recommend everyone to try it.

To end our meal we had Churros filled ice cream and skillet chocolate cake. Bought were huge portions which can easily be shared and were so so good!

I would love to visit Blaze burger more often because you can DIY your own toppings, burgers and everything. However finding parking in JBR is a task in itself. When we had visited, two parking sections were closed and had to park pretty far and walk for a good fifteen minutes to reach the restaurant.

Visit for : DIY burgers, pick your own sauces and superb service.

New Launches at Seattle’s Best Coffee

World famous Seattle’s best coffee is a familiar spot for many.  Their freshly brewed coffee and baked goodies have been my favorite for years.

IMG_1972

I was invited to try out their newly launched light meals menu and I must say it’s definitely worth a try!

Giving middle eastern touch to the menu is the zaater lebneh dip & beetroot hummus. Both of them are great to go snacks and not to forget how healthy they are. They do have soups and salads which are great for light lunch. My greek salad was a really hearty portion and love the dressing with it.  SBC has also introduced wide range of reasonably priced wraps, I went for the veggie wrap and my guest opted for halloumi pesto sandwich. Clear winner from the two would be the latter one as it was moist and perfect! We would have loved it more if it were in multigrain bread.

To cool ourselves off, we tried the deliciously thick chocolate milkshake which was  perfect to wash down all the dishes we tried. The waft of freshly baked cinnabon was irresistible so we skipped desserts and went for a chocobon & pecanbon. Needless to say, both were amazing and possibly the freshest of all the branch I have had at. You can watch them make it fresh!

Great little spot for casual meetings and some hot cinnabons!

Stuffed With Burgers At Stuffed Burger Co.!

Stuffed burger is one of those places that can be visited literally anytime of the day! I mean who doesn’t love burgers?
I got the opportunity to try out veggie options at Stuffed burger along with few of my mates and below is the synopsis of same.
Our burgers, veggie party with their signature sauce. Our sides, sweet potato fries, jalapeno poppers & loaded fries minus the bacon. Our drinks, passion fruit mojito, choco brownie shake & nutella shake.
What I liked was the sides, they were superb for the price and easily sharable. The shakes were delicious accompaniment to wash down our burgers! The staff members were really friendly and greeted everyone with excitement.
What I didn’t like: The burger was decent but a tad bit oily for my liking. I wish they had a stuffed vegetarian burger rather than a plain ol potato patty.
Our desserts, the white chocolate lotus cake and the brownie cake both were absolutely delicious!
I am definitely going back for the shakes and sides! Also kudos to the super smiling staff!

Restaurant Review: Cafe Society

Cafe society is the newest restaurant in marina that offers diners an unforgettable experience! We were here to try out their delicious offering.
I forget at times that I should consume low carbs. One of those moments was when warm & fresh bread basket was placed on our table. So absolutely delicious & the honey butter served along is enough to wet one’s appetite.
Our order appetizers consisted of tomato burrata salad, truffle croquetes with gorgeous presentation, calamari rings. The calamari rings as per my guest were tad too oily, however my croquetes were spot on!
Our mains were rice cagnone which was essentially pea with pecorino cheese puree with rice. I have to admit, I found it a bit bland for my taste. My doritos pizza was super delicious! Topped with homemade taco chips, oozing with cheese and jalepeno. My guest states that her lamb chops were perfectly cooked and tasted delicious too.
Our desserts consisted a dulche de leche which is trio of desserts and a shareable portion. Chocolate popsicle which was just like homemade chocolate ice cream bar but the thick coating on it won our hearts. Our last dessert was the giant macaroon. Sadly this one didn’t live up to our expectations as it was really tough to chew and the ganache was pretty sweet.
Overall, some dishes were a hit and some were clearly a miss. However I do recommend a visit because the food is unique and the decor is luxurious. For a cafe this place scores plus points for being totally instagrammable!

Shakes By The Beach – Keventers

Iconic Keventers are now at La Mer! Keventers is a well established milkshake brand from India.

We tried the Snickers Superior & Dulche De Leche milkshakes. Tastewise they are just fine. I do feel that Keventers as a brand is more popular as opposed to the taste of the milkshakes itself. However if you are someone who has grown up having these shakes, be prepared to get hit by nostalgia train. My guest was completely blown by the fact that the quality has been consistent throughout. He is someone who has been having these milkshakes from childhood. If you miss the taste of these iconic shakes, Keventers is here for you!

What I am going back for? to try Camel Milk Shakes!

Sushi Burrito – Where Japan Meets Mexico

Sushi Burrito is one of those fusion restaurants that offer you a unique combination of Mexican and Japanese.
We visited the emirates towers branch at DIFC that also offers complimentary valet parking( 2 hours )for the diners.
our choices consisted of DIY burrito which wasn’t the best I have had but fresh. The vegetarian sushi was passable too as it wasn’t prepared well. By that I mean the rolls were tied loosely. While few dishes mentioned earlier were a miss, what we really loved was the spicy edmame. The sauce on the edmame was fresh and lip smacking! My vegetarian poke is worth a mention too! Fresh vegetables and crunch from the nuts! I will definitely be ordering the same again.
My guest tried prawn tempura sushi which she loved! She also recommends the chicken katsu poke which was one of her favorites. For sweet endings, we tried the delicious mochi in mango & matcha, both were refreshing!
Overall, Sushiburrito is a great meal spot to try. The service is a bit slow but otherwise really friendly staff. I loved the decor & the long table dining option that is perfect for large families.

They have specials everyday of the week highlighting best dishes from Mexican & Japanese cuisine.
