Salads & More At Richy’s

As I always say, dining in JLT is fun now that’s because there are so many options! One of delicious options is Richys that serves wraps salads and smoothies all day long!
I tried the following salads, some custom made and some of their in house specials.
Zippy Tofu salad with goma dressing is,a must try as its zingy and I love the addition of edamame beans to it.

The Krunchy kale salad, again what a delicious combination with sweet potato and feta giving that creaminess.

My diy salad ( tricolored fusilli/grilled portebello mushrooms/ sundried tomato/corn/zucchini/ olives/Mozzarella/basil pesto) not low carbohydrate dish but really filling and it’s perfect for a light lunch.

They do offer delicious soups too. My favorite was the tomato and basil soup. Not a fan of fried crunchies but it adds a good crunchy element to the dish.

They have interesting wraps as well. What I tried was their veggie wrap which I replaced the feta with halloumi. My only concern was that the dressing of the wrap was a bit salty.
Coming to the desserts, I absolutely loved the fresh strawberry cheesecake. It not overtly sweet but the right amount of sweet.
Overall, Richys is a really good option for those looking to try new and healthy salad combinations. Also those who love DIY-ing own wraps and salads is a great idea!

Restaurant Review- Saj Bistro

Are you obsessed with middle eastern cuisine? I think I am a bit because I cannot live without hummus and my favorite halloumi. Giving a twist to these simple ingredients a modern concept of Saj Bistro was created.
Located conveniently at Aspin Towers, Saj Bistro offers a wide selection of burgers, wraps, face ups (manakeesh).
For appetizers, I ordered the quinoa salad and my guest opted for eggs sunny side up, fresh juices and halloumi wrap. The pesto halloumi wrap was delicious and interesting.
Must tries from the menu are definitely the akawwi cheese faceup that doesn’t only look delicious but the stringy cheese is a sight for cheese lovers.
For desserts, we opted for lotus waffle with ice cream and baklawa with ice cream.The former was light and not overtly sweet except the sauces while the latter was too sweet for my liking.
Overall, Saj bistro serves delicious fusion of leventine cuisine. Their quick service and delivery system sets them apart from the restaurants catering similar cuisine.

A Cheesy Affair At Taste Of Italy

Taste of Italy is a casual dining restaurant by five Michelin star chef Heinz Beck. Burrata and friends, a perfect name of the event held at Taste of Italy. As the name of the event explains it all, there is a lot of cheese and fun with friends involved.

Burrata is made of fresh mozzarella and stracciatella . Always been curious to know how it’s made and I got a chance to view it live at this event. The talented chefs were applauded for their skills of making something so difficult look so effortless! There is a lot of technique involved in the making of this cheese, right from treatment of cheese through various temperatures to setting it.
Missed out on the dishes served at the beginning of the evening as I reached a bit late. However I did try some delicious hors d’ oeuvres that were served throughout the evening. Freshly baked foccacia sandwiches with burrata, tomato and basil, ricotta filled pastry puffs, Margarita pizza bites and many more. Same was with the drinks as we were served basil lime soda, ice tea mojito and carrot and ginger based shots all of which were refreshing and a perfect accompaniments with our dishes.
The live burrata station was my favorite! Fresh burrata served with accompaniments like the truffle sauce, pesto alla genovese, Antica Salsa Rassa, Pakino Cherry tomato pesto and Olive crema or paté as its known. The cherry tomato pesto was my favorite with sweet and subtle flavours complimenting the richness of burrata.
There was also a cheese tasting area which showcased the variety of cheeses made with cow’s milk like Taleggio, Cuor Di Noci, Fontina and then there were those made with sheep’s milk like moliterno, castagno. These were offered with interesting spreads like apricot jam and figs spread with chocolate.
Our entrees were Pacchero stuffed with Ricotta & Spinach, Rigatoni Pesto Burrata, Avacado & Rocket risotto. The common crunch element to Rigatoni and Risotto was the tomato and pesto bread crumbs and it worked perfectly well balancing the dishes and giving it that vibrant golden garnish. A special vegetarian version of risotto was served for us which was a very sweet gesture by the staff as the original dish was served with shrimps.
The desserts were Ricotta Cheese based Mousse with honey & cacao and Tiramisu. Besides this we also tried the Nutella Gelato and Tiramisu gelato, both were absolutely delicious!
The restaurant also retails Italian merchandise, fresh cheeses and ingredients so that you can make your own delicious versions with classic Italian flavors. TOI is casual dining restaurant with both outdoor and indoor seating options.
Overall, Burrata and Friends was a huge success and I have been informed that similar event will be taking place in New future. It’s a treat for burrata lovers like myself. The burrata was the star of the night and it remained throughout. I am super impressed with the dishes and will definitely be back to try their Ala carte menu soon.
Burrata and Friends event was priced at AED145 all inclusive.
Thanks TOI for the invite and our server, Mr O-jay for being so prompt and enthusiastic!
