Just one of those days when dressing up feels like a chore and I end up eating in my car. Blessed to be in Dubai especially on such days because there are numerous dine-in-your-car places where people just park their cars and eat at the ease of their comfort. Headed over to Rabbash cafeteria in mamzar where finding a parking spot is always an issue but because it was a weekday, I found parking easily.

I ordered chicken funtasia and zinger chicken waffle burger, both came with curly fries and ketchup mayo. But the food took long time to arrive. I waited more than 30 minutes in the car and that left me a bit disappointed.

I liked funtasia, it was generously filled with black olives, cheese, chicken and onion bits. The bread wasn’t oily at all, I have had funtasia from numerous restaurants previously and most of them were dripping with oil but this one was nice and dry.

The zinger chicken waffle burger can be improved as the waffle was too doughy and not crispy at all. Believe me, I had it instantly so the fact that it wasn’t hot the moment they delivered it only gets challenging once the delivered food is consumed late. I am yet to try the shakes and desserts from here. Fingers crossed for my next visit/order.

Famous Dave’s serving passion

You know when there’s “famous” in the name of a restaurant, you gotta figure that out and see what is all that about. Hence, my visit to The Famous Dave’s in Festival City Mall located on level 1 with views of the gorgeous waterfront and LED show; you are bound to fall in love with the restaurant. What I love the most is their staff’s courtesy and the way they make you feel like home/family, they were so friendly that even my bossy toddler gave one of the staff a hi-five.

We decided to sit indoors and started browsing the menu that had several options to choose from. While we were busy doing that, the server brought us a basket of fresh potato chips sprinkled with herbs and salt. He also briefed us about the kinds of sauces on the table and what each sauce is made of and how does it taste. I personally loved the Texas pit because it paired so well with the tacos but more on that later 😉

From the famous American steaks to the barbecued ribs, you can choose anything you like. I had my heart set on the crispy chicken tacos while my husband ordered the Dave’s fried chicken that comes with fries and pickles. The tacos were out of this world! They were literally good enough to sweep my feet off the floor. Crispy chicken with fresh lettuce, zesty lime chipotle and the salsa were just meant to be together, the cherry on cake was fresh jalapenos on top. I am definitely recommending the tacos. Even though these were perfect, I drenched them in the Texas pit and sweet and sour sauces and had a ball!

The fried chicken was pretty amazing as well. Loved the charred chicken skin that was just golden and all the juices ran on the inside, the flavors were subtle unless you order the hot one. The smoked beef was brilliant! Packed with bags of flavors, this is a sure shot to your heart. Portion size was perfect for 2;I would say but if you’ve had a long day, Go for it man!

New Indian Restaurant in Dubai

Brand new addition to the Indian-Keralite restaurants in Dubai, Moriz stands out in terms of the interiors and lighting. I want to clear this fact right now that I got food delivered to my home from zomato but I happen to walk by this restaurant multiple times where the lighting in particular caught my eye.The best thing about Moriz is its prime location on the tea junction in Al-Nahda2. I’m sure many of you spend hours sipping tea with friends in this area.

I ordered tandoori chicken and chicken fried rice from here, the food was delivered quite quickly and that made me really happy. The packaging was good and the portion sizes were pretty great. But the food wasn’t really outstanding. I liked tandoori chicken, it was beautifully charred from the outside and soft on the inside but I feel it needed more marination on the inside. Nevertheless, it was pretty decent and I would recommend you this. The chicken fried rice were plain probably because I chose the non-spicy version but I wanted the subtle aroma of simple fried rice and I found that missing here.

Have you been to Moriz? Let me know what did you order and how did you like the food? Can’t wait to hear 🙂

The Era of Milk cakes

I would be lying if I deny the fact that my frequent appreciation for milk cakes is what keeps me away from becoming a size zero model. I am so glad that milk cakes have made their way into the dessert industry and recently we can see so many variations in terms of flavors available when ordering one. The most famous ones I have come across are saffron, pistachio and rose while a few are going the extra mile with karak and faluda milk cakes on the menu.

I visited London dairy bistro to enjoy their milk cakes on the occasion of Eid. They had three flavors to choose from; pistachio, rose and plain milk cake. So I went for rose and pistachio. For some strange reason the pistachio milk cake was 10 aed pricier than the rose one. I personally loved the flavors and loved the rose milk cake more than pistachio perhaps it was more rich and slightly more sweeter than the latter.

Honestly, there are only a few desserts that fail to impress me but I wouldn’t recommend you this place for milk cakes because I have had better in the same price. Luxuriously Satisfying desserts at The Living Room

But I want you to try these out and let me know what you think. 🙂

Outrageously brilliant burgers

Roaming around in Dubai on a sandy evening, I happen  to stumble upon Pickl in JLT area and it looked pretty awesome with neon colors in the dining area and a team that is all smiles as they serve the customers.

I asked their manager for recommendation and he asked if I like to have spicy chicken or not. I told him that I am all hearts for spicy burgers so he suggested that we understand the heat levels given on the menu which were: Plain fry, feel the heat and nashville hot chicken. I was dooling at the sound of nashville hot chicken but somehow opted for feel the heat. Absolutely loved the crispy fried chicken patty sprinkled with some amazing spices. I am definitely going for nashville the next time. Their secret to these amazing burgers is the special sauce they add inside and also serve alongside the burgers.

Also tried the chicken tenders that were literally tender and juicy. Loved the portion size and the pickles that come along. I highly recommend you visit Pickl and don’t just order home because these burgers are best enjoyed at the restaurant.

Health meets flavor

I have always felt that salads tend to taste boring and one only compromises on flavor when choosing a healthy salad. But this salad served to be a healthy dose of perspective when I just couldn’t get enough of it. I tried the kale and chicken salad at zaatar w zeit and it was tremendous showcase of health meets flavor.

I shall begin by telling you that I wasn’t particularly happy with the presentation of this as the one shown on their marketing picture was absolutely different. Nevertheless, flavor is what I settle for at the end of the day.

The salad was delicious, especially the crispy fresh kale with zesty dressing and sweet bits of dried apricot in between. Topped with slices of succulent grilled chicken breast that was cooked perfectly. Loved the subtle hints of spices in there. Overall the salad stood out in terms of both quality and quantity.

Also tried their zouza salad with tuna, it was perfect for anyone who likes colorful salad with a bit of this and that. Their fresh carrot juice was wonderful as well.

Chicken broast to live for

I have always heard people say “That food was to die for” and realized why would you die for a food that’s really good? Therefore, this new intervention from a kind hearted foodie is that this chicken I ordered from Fresh Chicken King was to live for. I want to have this at least once a month. Their broasted chicken was spicy and crispy.

I also ordered their rice with chicken kebabs but those weren’t that good. I felt the kebab needed some strong spices other than salt. Rice were too thick as well so I won’t recommend you that one. I feel they have so much variety in the crispy fried chicken section. There’s extra crispy one and a spicier one. I tried the simple broasted chicken and I gotta say it was fabulous! totally recommended.

They have various branches around Dubai so try those as well. I ordered from the Qusais branch and I plan to visit them directly next time because what’s better than freshly fried chicken coming straight to your plate.

Sweet Hungarian roll

I know I am on a mission to eat healthy and no sugar and stuff but its been so long that I cheated on my meal so this is how I cheated and you are going to love this one.

I have always spotted this small dessert kiosk in Dubai Festival City mall near carrefour, but never got the chance to stop by. This time I did and that too with a plan. Kurtos Kalacs serve some deliciously indulging desserts that include icecreams, churros, chocolate burger and the sweet Hungarian roll. I so wanted to opt for the waffle chocolate burger but they were out of that so I asked them for Kurtos cone icecream but they were out of fresh icecream. By now I was so intolerant that I opted for the cone despite of the fact that I won’t be getting fresh icecream with it.

Priced at 19 Aed; this one gigantic! Loved how they made it. Head over to my instagram to see how they made it as I am unable to link that post here.

The churros were soft and moist, the melted chocolate inside was just the right amount; not too much. I basically loved the idea of this dessert. You gotta roll up your sleeves to delve in 😉

Getting jiggy with The Salad Jar

The salad jar has various outlets all over Dubai and I chose to order from the closest one that is Al Quoz. I liked their menu because its pretty much simpler and detailed so you are clear on what to order and which salad has what inside. They even have clear illustrations to understand each salad.

After being confused over choosing levant or Chicken Levant, I finally went for the latter. The Salad was delivered within 30 minutes and the jar was really cute. I even washed it for later use. The chicken levant salad comprises of dates, couscous, dried apricots, mint roasted chickpeas, lemon marinated chicken, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes and fresh parsley. I specifically ordered it because I wanted to have the sweetness from dried apricot and acidity from lemon marinated chicken and that is exactly what I got. But the couscous was a bit dry and I was wishing that it came with something creamy. The dressing options were lime juice, dijon mustard, cumin, honey garlic, pomegranate juice but I think the dry couscous needed some mayonnaise or ranch kinda dressing. Or maybe they could reduce the quantity of couscous in there.

For 47 Aed, I found it overpriced. I mean I could get a full blown meal in this price but hey! I will try them again and if any of you try them, drop a comment and let me know your experience 🙂
