Spoil yourselves at The House of flavours

Wouldn’t it be great if you never have to decide what cuisine you wanna have? Because this is what happens… one of our friend is a die hard chinese cuisine fan, the other one..not so much, he would love Indian food while some of us would wanna have hearty Arabic meals, some would want Filipino fried chicken and this is why we never settle for one place to dine in.

img_4015

Fear not, House of flavors has got you covered because they serve Indian, Filipino, Chinese and Arabic cuisine all under one roof. Not only this, they have separate chef for each specialty cuisine so the authenticity remains intact. To top it all, they have separate menu-s for every cuisine they serve. I mean, that’s just super cool.

We started off with Crispy chicken that’s cooked in chili sauce with sliced peppers, it tasted amazing. The blend of spices and crispiness of chicken were spot on.

img_4057

Then we jumped on the murgh angara that at first didn’t strike much excitement for me because I had it seconds after the chili chicken. But believe me, it was the most comforting curry with boneless chicken pieces dunked in it. It was lovely! They served garlic naan with the curry that enhanced its flavor. Naan were super soft and fresh from the oven.

img_4069
Murgh angaara

We also tried the charcoal pepper chicken that was true definition of perfection including the pepper coating on top and the juicy chicken from inside. If you can handle high intensity spicy then this one is for you.

Next, we had the american chopsuey which was a giant bowl of noodles on one side and red chicken sauce on the other with a fried egg on top garnished with scallions. Imagine the view that was in front of my eyes, purely beautiful. The egg was cooked perfectly with the egg white hard and yolk soft and intact. The noodles were hand-made and you will definitely know the difference once you taste.

Then came the beef sizzler that made me skip a heart beat, sizzling luscious mushroom sauce with tender juicy beef and a grilled corn on the cob looked nothing but amazing. Totally love the mushroom sauce.

Turkish cuisine with beach views- Kaftan

I have expressed my love for Turkish cuisine quite frequently and I am huge fan of kebabs, while no one does kebabs better than the Turkish chefs; Kaftan brings delicious kebabs and so much more with beach views in La Mer to enjoy at maximum.

I remember it was a day before New Year’s eve when we decided to dine in at Kaftan and just went without reservations. When we reached there, the administrator told us that there is a 20 minute waiting and I could actually see people waiting in queue for a table. The smell of gorgeous kebabs faded the waiting time in my head and I thought to myself that I would wait an hour but will eat here only.

It was our lucky day because within 25 minutes, we got a table. As soon as we were seated, a basket of fresh and warm soft bread was served with two tiny jars of mayonnaise and ketchup. The bread was so delicious and soft as velvet that I lost track of how many I have gobbled up.

We asked for french fries and got a nice big portion of fries that were fresh and crispy.

img-9313

We ordered strawberry mojito which was amazing in terms of intense kick of lemon and just the right punch from strawberry but it had way too much sugar. Like literally “Too much”

img-9315
Strawberry mojito

We ordered Tavuk sis and Beyti Kebab. Beyti Kebab were absolutely smashing! Loved how tender the meat was, juicy from top to bottom and full of subtle flavors. I think its safe to write that it was one of the best kebabs I have ever had.

img-9317
Beyti kebab

I didn’t like the tavuk sis that much, mainly because the chicken wasn’t seasoned well. It was bland and grilled without infusing spices or any flavors. These were basically boneless chicken peices char grilled and served with brown rice.

Dubai’s tastiest buffet – Kitchen6

 

img-9070Whether you want to take out that special someone for a wholesome buffet experience or just the family to have a delicious meal time for everyone because Kitchen 6 has so much variety. Their stations are not only full of gorgeous dishes but they taste beautiful too. I have been visiting this place for two years now and yet, I still wait for a special occasion like birthdays or anniversaries to just be here. They make you feel valued and help enhance your dining experience like no one else.

img-9090

Before I begin on the elaborate details, I want you to know that this buffet at Kitchen6 is a game changer. You know how in buffets, they don’t let you have water or any other drinks in the per head amount paid? Well, kitchen6 does not deprive you of if and has wide variety of shots, lemonade and juices to entice you all the way. I loved their lemonade, it had a refreshing punch.

img-9083

Starters:

From hummus and dipping vegetables to quinoa salad, they’ve got it all! I particularly loved their chicken quesadillas, thai style beef chicken satay and crispy chicken bites. There were peanut sauce and different pickles accompanying them.

img-9089

Soups and sandwiches:

You have got to try their angus beef burger and fries and if you prefer eating clean then ceaser salad and arabic lentil soup is just the right one for you.

Mains:

I began roaming around my favorite station where arabic mixed grill is found, the grilled meat items were spectacular. Joojeh kebab, lamb kofta with saffron rice were like whisper of a dream. Their butter chicken, salmon steak and corn-fed chicken breast made their way to my heart as well.

 

Asian station:

This is my favorite station whenever I visit Kitchen6 for a buffet dinner. They have nasi goreng, vegetable fried rice, cashew chicken and so much more to keep you hooked to this particular section of the buffet. I couldn’t get enough of their sweet and sour fish with vegetables as it was just perfect.

While, my appetite was satisfied, the heart wasn’t. As I was still eating, their sous chef walked up to me and offered me a freshly cooked gulab jamun. How in the world could I say no to that sweet offer? I said yes. And to my surprise, the gulab jamun was superb. Just like the ones I used to have back in my hometown, Pakistan.

img-9118

Sweet Endings:

Their dessert station looks like fairytale, straight out of disney books. Its beautifully decorated and full of treats you can trust. Traditional Umm ali, berries and creame, chocolate fudge, warm chocolate pudding, oreo cheesecake, cookie crumble, fresh fruits and different flavors of icecreams and sorbets with multiple topping options.

Treats you can trust – Afters

Afters is a gorgeous dessert parlor in Al-seef serving fancy and sinfully indulgent desserts that are made from scratch. Their ice creams and gelato are anything but ordinary. The fact that you can enjoy such amazing desserts sitting by serene views is what remains the highlight of your day.

Their interiors are chic and lots of dessert quotes are framed to the wall with major puns intended. Their staff members are always smiling and hard working.

img_3897

Now, it will be a challenge for you to decide what to order because every flavor of icecream tastes beautiful and pure. I assure you, no matter what you decide to order; you will be happy with its quality. For me, my heart was set on the King ferrero Sundae. It was a blend of fererro rocher, chocolate ice cream and hazelnut served with chocolate and caramel sauce, garnished with fererro rocher chunks, nuts, whipped creame and Florentine wafers.

img_3893
King fererro Sundae

Its portion size was enough to be shared among three people.

Then I had the most prettiest waffle with generous topping of exotic fruits and a scoop of ice cream and sauce of my choice (I chose lotus ice cream and hazelnut sauce).

img_3888

The fruits were not canned, they were fresh and in abundance. So glad to have been here, the desserts are surely going to spoil you. Thank you for serving us the best team Afters, I look forward to visiting you again soon.

Best potato in town- Potato Hut

IMG_3702

I happen to visit the Dubai marina branch of Potato Hut and indulged in some serious potato love that deserves a big round of applause for flavor, creativity, freshness and quality. Its a small place with limited seating but I would recommend you get food from here and enjoy sitting at the Marina beach that’s just some steps away from here.

IMG_3707

I ordered the butter chicken baked potato with loads of hot sauce, mayonnaise and bbq sauce. I added capsicum and olives as the veggie toppings. The baked potato tasted amazing. It was a perfect blend of creaminess (as I also added mozzarella) the chunky butter chicken paired so well with it.

IMG_3714
Baked potato with butter chicken

Then, I ordered the Sweet potato Indian style which took me back to my childhood in Karachi, Pakistan where in markets, street hawkers used to sell baked sweet potato and it tasted just like that. It was topped with salt, pepper and lemon wedges. Even if you’re not a sweet potato person, I would recommend you try this.

IMG_3715
Sweet potato (Indian)

I also tried their bbq chicken sandwich and the highlight here was the potato bread, that was so beautiful. You gotta taste it to believe me. The filling was super creamy with mushrooms and chicken.

IMG_3733
bbq chicken sandwich in potato bread

They also have some amazing selection of salads and fresh juices along with different varieties of coffee. I tried their beetroot and orange juices and loved both.

I was hosted by Francis and Yuvette, both were lovely people who took care of me so well. If you’re having major potato cravings; my highest recommendations would be for this place.

Exploring Grano coffee house vibes

IMG_3620

Grano coffee is right outside rigga metro station and they have raised the dessert game to another level by serving warm crepes, waffles and pancakes along with some freshly brewed coffee, latte, cappuccino, espresso and americano.

IMG_3627

You’ll notice people working on their laptops while sipping on their shakes and fresh coffee. The coffee house has some cozy vibes with comfortable couch to spend some quality time at.

IMG_3618

I tried their nutella crepe which was beautifully wrapped in luscious nutella and the crepe itself was velvety soft. There were crushed lotus biscuits inside the crepe that elevated my happiness. Then I got my hands on the chocolate mini pancakes that were utterly delicious and I would recommend these to people who don’t want to have too much chocolate.

IMG_3632

Next, came the chocolate mini waffles that were little blocks of heaven. They were rich and creamy and the moment you bite into one, the chocolate burst is unbelievable.

IMG_3602

Sushi crepe was awesome! there were fresh strawberries lined across the crepe and the entire dessert turned out fantastic.

Their pistachio shake was the real deal! I would definitely recommend you order that.

IMG_3607

Thank you for having us grano coffee. Loved the cozy vibes. A definite recommendation!

Netflix and chill with Debonairs Pizza

I think you all are going to agree with the fact that Netflix and chill go very well with pizzas. Last weekend, I ordered debonair’s pizza and binge watched “House of cards”.
IMG_3583
I went to their website and the 99 Aed/. deal got me shook. It was three large pizzas for 99 only. So I went for it and ordered a spicy chicken pizza (double stack), Hawaiian chicken pizza and chicken mushroom pizza. I found the online ordering system a bit difficult as from the moment you choose the pizza flavor, all the sub-categories that show up are confusing. For example, when I chose spicy chicken pizza (29 aed) were already added to my cart and then I was asked to choose toppings where the options were cheese, veg toppings, non veg toppings and sauces. Now, for a moment I thought why would I have to add cheese separately, isn’t that what pizza usually comes with? Then I figured out, it must be extra. I suggest the management to add the word extra to the options so it becomes clear.

I added only one instruction with the order that said “please bring the order on time and it should be hot” and they lived it up to it. The pizza was actually 2 minutes earlier than the given time frame.

IMG_3589
spicy chicken pizza

The spicy chicken pizza was really good, love the fiery jalapenos with creamy cheese. But the bread was really hard and chewy.

IMG_3590
Hawaiian pizza

Loved this one, the pineapples on top were perfectly caramelized but the dough was still hard.

IMG_3588
chicken and mushroom pizza

This was super delicious, especially if you have someone in friends/family who doesn’t like spicy food. It was subtle and tasty. he mushrooms were grilled well but the dough was same hard and chewy.

Overall, I love the variety of flavors to choose from but the dough was pretty troublesome. Thank you for delivering us delicious pizzas Team Debonairs.

Dinner Buffet at Kaleidoscope

Kaleidoscope is a much famous restaurant in the Palm Atlantis. I had been introduced to this place through the entertainer app 2018. So, I decided to give it a go on a birthday and while I made reservations through a phone call, their team was extremely co-operative and kind. They promised me a birthday cake on the house and helped me understand the dress code as well.

IMG-8313

The moment you enter Palm Atlantis, that feeling of grandness and larger than life is on your mind. Loved their Christmas decor, cleanliness, system management and security. I slowly walked to the restaurant because I was wearing high heels that day. We were frequently asked to disclose any allergies so the staff may assist us in choosing the food options. We were seated at quite the far end from the buffet, and happily walked every time we wanted to explore the menu.IMG-8362

Selection of salad, lettuce and vegetables:

They have wide variety of fresh salad including boiled eggs, butter lettuce, iceberg lettuce, sweet corn. cucumber, beans, broccoli and many more ready made ones like Tuna salad, spicy beef salad, ceaser salad, greek salad, chicken and waldorf salad, quinoa and roasted pumpkin salad. The best part was the several salad dressings you can pick from.

IMG-8324

Selection of Sushi Rolls:

They’ve got Salmon, crab, unagi, nigri with tuna, you name it! also the various condiments such as wasabi, soya sauce, pickle ginger.

IMG-8323

 Nachos station:

This one was a bit disappointing for me as there were no tacos but hey! the nachos were crispy and fresh, there were various salsa options to go with it like tomato salsa, corn and black bean salsa, guacamole, spring onion salsa and even carrot and egg plant salsa.

Cheese Board:

The cheese board was aesthetically pleasing with brie, gorgonzola, gouda, emental, edam, fontina and many more to enjoy with mixed nuts, dry fruits, fresh grapes, peach, water crackers, crostini and even figs and plum chutneys. Now that’s some variety.

Italian dishes:

I think its fair to tell you that this is the main area where I was roaming around mainly due to the fresh exotic pasta dishes including cochiggli pasta with meat sauce and meat lasagne. They also had carbonara, balongnese, alfredo, pesto and arrabiata on made to order. But my heart was really set on their pizza corner as it had four cheese pizza, margarita and the cheese bianca pizza. *Drooling while I write this*

Soup of the day:

I didn’t try any of the soups that day but they looked pretty amazing. There was lentil soup, cream potato and leek and cream of mushroom soups that day.

Rotisserie:

Atlantis beef and roasted chicken were the most loved items as there was a high influx of people on that table. I would really like to praise the pepper sauce here that was kept as a condiment. It paired so well with the chicken.

Main course:

The most amazing thing about this buffet was the Tandoor and Indian curry station as it had so much variety that your’e going to read this twice. (or maybe thrice?) Ok, I’ll name the dishes for you and then you be the judge ok? let’s do this:

For the vegetarians there were: Zeera pulao, daal tadka, beans sabzi, chana masala, aaloo shimla, dahi kadi, paneer makkini, tandoori potato and tindli masala, aaloo tikki and vegetable pakora too.

While for the non-vegeterians: Fish tikka, chicken tandoori, mutton rohan josh and chicken goan curry. Then there were various Indian breads and chutneys made from the freshest ingredients.

Dim Sums:

The dim sum station was lit with chicken bun, prawn sew mai, lo makai, hakau prawn dim sum, vegetable dumpling, fish dumpling and mushroom dumpling.

IMG-8291

Arabic station:

I can not explain how delicious were there mix grilled items especially the lamb kebabs. They were juicy and cooked to perfection. The cheese rolls and lamb kibbeh were amazing too.

Sweet endings:

Loved their exotic selection of pastry display, chocolate fountain, date chocolate tower, orange rice pudding, praline eclair, oreo cheese cake, pineapple and coconut tart, vanilla eggless cake and fried cinnamon sticks.

I would like to suggest the management to add mini cocktail shots to one of the stations, I know there was a rhubarb drink but I didn’t like it that much. Also. I missed crispy fried prawns.

And you eat like at home with Crumby

IMG_3469

Crumby is an authentic Italian restaurant that serves you meals that are hearty and make you feel like home. The warmth and freshness in each dish resonates with one’s heart so beautifully that it is impossible to be dissatisfied with your dining experience here.

IMG_3473

The ambiance is simple. elegant and neat. Even the choice of music is vintage and classy.

IMG_3481
Bruschetta

We started off our amazing culinary journey with fresh Bruschetta that was exceptionally good simply because the tomatoes were not over grilled. Usually I feel chefs cook/bake the tomatoes so much that when you bite into the bruschetta, it looses that juicy and fresh touch.

IMG_3518
Pumpkin soup

It was their soup of the day and I had runny nose so our server “Diana” recommended me this soup and she assured me that it will be amazing. I usually don’t go for soups especially pumpkin ones but when I had the first spoonful of this soup, my pupils dilated with excitement. It was creamy and warm and it came with a bowl of parmesan cheese and croutons to add as per your liking. I went all in and tossed the croutons and cheese and waited for a minute to dig in so that the croutons become pillow-y soft. The soup tasted exactly like a classic beschamel sauce.

IMG_3488
chicken panzerotti

The chicken panzerotti was fluffy and light as air so much so that you won’t believe its deep fried. All credit goes to the dough that was kneaded to perfection. The chicken and cheese filling inside was pretty generous and flavorsome. Don’t believe me? Watch out for this cheese pull below:

IMG_3493

 

Speaking of perfect dough, their pepperoni pizza was work of art.

IMG_3512
Pepperoni pizza with cherry tomatoes

Diana explains us the six steps which are needed to make this beautiful pizza. First the chef kneads dough several times and then rolls it out on the baking dish and slathers on freshly prepared pizza sauce comprised of ripe tomatoes. He then bakes it for some time and when the bread rises, only then the cheese and pepperoni is added and the cherry tomatoes go on last. wow!

IMG_3525
Spinach and ricotta ravioli

If you don’t know the amount of time and energy that goes into making a perfect ravioli, you may never appreciate it the way it deserves to be appreciated. This was a spinach and ricotta ravioli dunked in tomato sauce with Italian herbs. The combination of spinach and ricotta is match made in heaven but it was executed so well that this dish stands out.

IMG_3526

Crumby Dubai has won this title for an eminent reason:

IMG_3538
Tiramisu

Their Tiramisu is made of mascrapone cheese made from scratch, yep! you read it right and that enhances its flavor up to 10 times as compared to an ordinary Tiramisu.

IMG_3543

The layers of divine goodness blend in beautifully to create this dessert. I am smitten by the hearty meals I devoured here at Crumby, this is the kind of food that speaks to your heart and soul on so many levels.

Thank you once again for a wonderful dining experience Crumby Dubai.

Your caffeine fix done right at Kava & Chai

img_3246.jpg

Kava and chai is cafe that specializes in tea/coffee variations that are amusingly good. The cafe is located in center of Al-seef where the menu makes perfect sense. Especially when the temperature drops and winters are coming around, it is the best idea to visit Kava and chai and indulge in some serious tea/coffee time along with scrumptious salads or desserts. They even have wide variety of smoothies, detox blends and lemonades, including some rare combinations I’m sure you have never heard before.

IMG_3242

I absolutely love the cozy interiors where you can just sit, relax and unwind or catch up with a long gone friend or even schedule a meeting with co-worker. It’s always going to be a good idea.

Salad Options:

These guys have an amazing choice of salads to choose from but I wasn’t really happy with a few things about both of my salads. I chose date and spinach salad along with a classic chicken ceaser’s salad. While the spinach and dates salad was pretty nice, the baby spinach leaves were not chopped that caused difficulty while eating. Whereas, the chicken ceaser salad was really bland, the dressing had no flavors either and the chicken was plain boiled.

IMG_3323
Spinach & Date salad
IMG_3316
Chicken caeser salad

Sandwiches:

I chose spicy sojuk sandwich and a chicken & mozzarella sandwich. The spicy sojuk sandwich was absolutely spot on! beef mince was cooked in tomato sauce with some really subtle spices that tasted so nice in the sandwich. However the chicken mozzarella sandwich wasn’t really good because the chicken inside it was exactly the same as the one in the salad.

IMG_3301
Soicy sojuk sandwich and chicken mozzarella sandwich

Caffiene fix:

I opted for their aromatic cappuccino and Kava & Chai latte, both were perfectly balanced cups of happiness. The cappuccino was pure, strong and luscious while the chai latte was a winner. It had a slight touch of cinnamon that worked its way to my heart.

IMG_3280
Kava & Chai Latte
IMG_3298
Cappuccino

They serve their hot beverages with some freshly baked buttery cookies that puts a giant smile on my face anyday.

Detox blend:

My heart was set on the thyme lemonade but I ordered the passion fruit ginger blend instead. And I was so happy with my drink as it was beautifully composed with fresh ingredients. I was afraid that it will be too sour but it was pretty nice.

IMG_3295
Passion fruit and ginger lemonade

Desserts:

IMG_3256

 

I tried their red velvet cake and I was so impressed with it. I have never had a red velvet cake that is covered in thick chocolate before, it tasted so nice together and I was totally fighting over the oreo on top with my plus one 🙂

Thank you for having us Kava & Chai, your service was commendable since it was full house when we were there. I look forward to visit you soon.

Exhilarating meals at Baydar

IMG_2903

Baydar is Lebanese food paradise with exhilarating bites as you dig into your meal. The interiors are simple and neat. Their service is commendable and the staff is well trained because they give amazing suggestions when you ask anything about the menu.
So, we started off with freshly squeezed orange juice and lemonade. I loved both the juices as they were fresh and not diluted with sugar or other ingredients.

IMG_2911
orange juice and lemonade

We were served oven fresh bread with hand picked olives and pickled vegetables to munch on. The bread was velvety soft and when we teared it apart, we could see the smoke coming out. It paired so well with the Labneh served.

IMG_2925

Starters:

For starters, we ordered Fattoush and Hummus which were individually incredible. I have had fattoush at numerous places in Dubai before but this was exceptionally good. The balsamic vinaigrette was diluted with subtle hints of sugar or jaggery that aided in the resulting flavor.

IMG_2917
Fattoush salad
IMG_2918
Hummus

Hummus was pretty decent too and tasted really fresh.

Appetizers:

We ordered chicken shawarma samosa for appetizer because let’s just be honest about my feelings for samosa. Its the only snack that stays close to my heart and because shawarma samosa would have been something new so I decided to order it. It was absolutely delicious as it lived up to the name, tasted like a shawarma but felt like a samosa.

IMG_2926
Chicken shawarma samosa

Mains:

We went all out’for the main course and ordered the chicken tikka tandoori style which was boneless and came with hand cut french fries and a fiery green chutney composed of mint, green chillies, coriander and parsley.

IMG_2936
chicken tikka tandoori style

In awe of this dish as it was full of flavors and spices and finally grilled to perfection. The exciting moment was when we dipped the chicken fully in chutney and then took a bite of it. *pure love* I tell you!

Desserts:

I’m sure you are familiar with the famous middle eastern dessert called “Kunafe” that comes with either creame or cheese and lots of sugar syrup to pour on top. The Kunafe we had here was really different than the usual ones because it didn’t had a crispy top so usually a kunafe has crispy vermicelli on top that gives it crunchiness and I missed that element here. The cheese filling was pretty generous though!

IMG_2958
Cheese Kunafe

Next, we had the rice pudding which was an instant hit for my toddler as he didn’t leave the bowl at all. The pudding was served cold (just the way we like it) and it was garnished with toasted almond shavings. It was so comforting.

IMG_2951

Thank you for the amazing service and wonderful hospitality Team Baydar. I look forward to visiting you again soon.

Let food do the talking at Bisso’s Bakery

A place that swears by the rule “Do it with passion or not at all” lives up to it in every way. When I walked into the bakery, I was surrounded by beautiful aroma of freshly baked treats. And then the visuals of different buns and pastries just add cherry on top. The place is equipped with simple yet classy interiors that impart cozy and rustic ambiance.

IMG_2565

Coffee- The elixir of life

We started off with a giant cup of organic latte prepared on spot.

IMG_2561

Baking the difference!

I’m pretty sure that this one is a newbie that’s going to sweep your feet off the floor once you get to taste it. This is Flayfeh & Akkawi that was actually flat bread covered in spicy pickled sauce where you can evidently spot nigella seeds and sesame seeds. The sauce is lip smacking good and pairs amazingly well with the cheese.

IMG_2576
Flayfleh & Akkawi

Then we tried Baladi with pomegranate molasses that were star ingredient in this dish. You need to have a palate for this dish. Fortunately, I discovered only here that I do. It was absolutely tasty with the tender minced meat and sweet pomegranate.

IMG_2582
Lahim B Ajeen Halabi (Baladi)

I bet you have had Kibbeh before several times but this is an absolute MUST have. Because it comes with stir fried onions, bell peppers and is garnished with  sumac and parsley that all makes sense when you eat them together. The pita bread serves as bed and blanket for the meat balls that are Kibbeh.

IMG_2604
Kibbeh w Khibzeh

I’m really going to be honest here by letting you all know that this is the dish I will be going for ANY DAY of the year because it just lights up my taste buds and makes me fall in love with honey mustard sauce all over again. I mean who doesn’t adore the combination of honey mustard sauce with chicken that’s baked? But the real information here is that this sauce is made from scratch; that’s the reason behind its gorgeous flavor.

IMG_2594
Potato and Chicken in Honey Mustard sauce

This place opens up as early as 7 am and that means you should definitely grab this Zaatar cheese double braid bun after your morning run. Why you ask? Because its freshly baked and zaatar interlocked with cheese tastes like heaven.

IMG_2619
Double braid bun

I have never had Salmon before but this Smoked Salmon star just made my day. And its actually because the bread underneath that salmon has three kinds of cheese to give a distinct flavor that works amazingly well with salmon.

IMG_2618
Smoked Salmon star

Cooking is like love, it should be entered into with abandon or not at all.

Nope, those aren’t my words. (But my thoughts sync with it). So, if you read Bisso’s Bakery’s menu carefully. You’ll read this and once you try their menu, you will know how true this is. It was just so challenging for me to decide which dish I would like to order the next time I visit and that very moment, desserts arrived. *Gasp*

IMG_2628
Mango chia seed pudding

Remember when I recommended you their double braid bun for breakfast? well, just add the granola cup and mango chia seed pudding to that list. Because these babies speak for themselves.

IMG_2624
zebra cup

I can go on and on for weeks to describe how delicious the zebra cup was. It was actually layers of moist chocolate cake, home made custard and a lusciously intense chocolate sauce. That sounds like a dessert where you can finally drown your sorrows in Huh?

See that drool worthy charcoal bun? It was loaded with butterscotch sauce and the rose lemonade actually has rose petals floating on top that add so much intensity to the flavor altogether.

I would really like to thank Bisso’s Bakery for introducing me to amazing food that I had no idea exists. Every item on your menu is pure, quality rich and is packed with bags of flavor. I can not wait to return to have all of this again.
