Fresh & Hot! Zpizza

am a pizza maniac, I can eat it any time of the day! So it’s obvious that I keep discovering new places and telling you folks about the same.
Glad that restaurants are taking the concept of healthy eating seriously and so following that is Zpizza. They use GMO free flour and do offer gluten free options.

I tried their meal for four option which includes two salads, two medium pizzas, coke & six pieces of their garlic breads served with marinara sauce. My choice of pizzas included, spinach & mushroom which has white sauce base & California Veggie, filled with all the possible veggies. Whoever said pizzas are unhealthy are really wrong, just look at those veggies man! For salads I tried Greek salad & California salad, both were delicious & hearty portions. The garlic bread sticks were a bit tough to chew on but i am assuming that’s because i consumed it while it was cold.
Can’t wait for Zpizza business Bay branch to open up! It’s going to be near from my office which only means one thing.. more pizza lunches!
Please note: I was sent the meal as I had won their giveaway. I was not asked to review them but they do offer genuinely good food so do check them out!

Restaurant Review – Barbeque Nation

A concept which allows you to DIY bbq and enjoy other treats is not new to Dubai but certainly is for Barsha residents.

BBQ nation is a well known franchise from India with outlets in almost every city. Their specialty is grill as per your liking on the table, besides that they also have wide variety of counters where you are served soups, mains, rice, accompaniments, wraps and even your own mix of noodles.
I personally found the DIY grill part to be a bit slow because it takes a lot of time to get the perfect char on my paneer and vegetable skewers. The taste was spot on though. These skewers are partially cooked and served on table unlimited number of times. Once you want to stop the server from adding grills, all you need to do is put down the sign that says ” I give up”. Wait.. that doesn’t really mean you give up. You actually are just ready to proceed to main courses. I did enjoy those as there is a good variety for both vegetarians and non vegetarians. My eyes were fixated on the wrap and rolls counter, basically a paratha and you can add mix of vegetables, paneer and sauces. It was delicious and fun to watch.
The staff were super friendly throughout the service, encouraging my guest and I to try out everything. It was a wide buffet so trying out each and every item is a task but we managed it.
Towards the end of our meal I was too stuffed to try the desserts. However when I was been informed of kulfi counter I was thrilled to try! They have a great variety of all in-house made kulfis with flavors like chocolate to saffron. Eat the kulfi plain or get it topped with variety of toppings like nuts, cookies, wafer biscuits, smarties and many more. The desserts apart from kulfi ice creams were passable because they weren’t that great. I felt there is a bit more work required at that end since especially the cakes which I found a bit too dry.
Overall, BBQ nation is a great option and a good place to visit with your foodie friends. A word of caution though, make sure you are really hungry else you wouldn’t be able to enjoy the variety. The thing with buffets is that everyone finds their own liking some may love the grills while some may enjoy something else so it’s always a win win situation.
Decor-wise, the restaurant has wide wooden tables and faux bar area at the end(because they don’t serve alcohol). There is a lot of seating area and great for parties. They do have live music in evenings and offer catering to events as well.
I also had brief chat with Mr Dipak, the manager of the branch. I am informed that soon there will be a chaat corner added to the already wide buffet. Due to popular demand a branch in Karama will be launched too.

Treats From Oushé Bakeshop

Oushe is one of places that I personally haven’t visited but tasted a lot of their range mostly through the Gingerbread Box and also Oushe team had sent me some dishes to try a while back. Besides my review on their sweet treats I am also combining the review that I had written earlier and completely forgot to post for you all.
I am dividing this review in 2 parts. Savory and Sweet.
Savory:
I have tried their avocado and cheddar pockets and they were absolutely lip smacking! So light and the cheddar so flavorful that I would definitely order this dish again. Also tried the the tropical Quinoa salad that has mango and red onions.  I never imagined that combination with quinoa but works well! Though not so much of a favorite the salad was interesting enough. They had also sent across roast beef and horseradish sandwich which my friend had and he enjoyed it a lot as the beef from his viewpoint was succulent and a crab salad too was really good. Since I am a vegetarian, I am unable to share exact feedback on the non vegetarian dishes sent.
Sweet:
Brownies: they have killer legendary brownies! I mean no one and absolutely no one can beat their brownies ever! They are dense and chocolate-y so moist!
Celestial Chocolate Cake: thick chocolate fudge with subtle hints of lavender in cream. This is a perfect cake for someone who loves a touch of floral feel to their cakes.
Date balls: simple, delicious and perfect to gift to someone
Jewelled fruit cake : a perfect cake for Christmas or someone who loves fruits. Topped generously with freeze dried fruits such as kiwi, apricots and walnuts, this cake is gently spiced for that perfect kick.
Assorted cookies: xmas cookies, date cookies and many others. All buttery, melt in mouth and a delight to have.
Pecan pie : goey, moist and nutty! The crust is buttery.
Overall, Oushe is this lovely cafe that doesn’t only have decadent desserts but delicious savoury dishes too. If you have a party or an event that requires catering, Oushe is a good option to look at. Also of what owner tells me, the place is popular for quick lunches.
Enterprise is owned by a woman entrepreneur Ms Reem who is an absolute sweetheart. Do give this place a try if you haven’t!
