Ramadan menu tasting at Osh Dubai

Osh is a classy restaurant with some amazing interiors, located in La Mer; Osh caters to foodies with elegant Uzbek cuisine needs. Recently, I was invited to their Ramadan menu tasting and as I walked into the restaurant; their upstairs is dedicated for smokers while downstairs for non-smokers but since the meet up session was upstairs I climbed up and witnessed a dark ambiance with light only focusing on food.

We were served starters with Baba ganoush, hummus beiruti, fattoush and an egg salad. I loved baba ganoush, it had a lovely smokey flavor to it. I also tried their sambosuk that were accompanied with red tomato dip, loved these little bites. They were my favorite. Also had the lentil soup which was super comforting as the base was chicken stock. I absolutely adored it.

For mains, we tried the mix grills where Lamb kebabs and chicken kebabs were served with fresh salad. I particularly loved the chicken ones, I think the lamb kebabs needed more cooking time but they also were flavorful.

I tried their jellab drink which was presented in a gorgeous way with dates on top and lots of pine nuts inside. Loved it.

For dessert I had the chak chak which is basically crispy fried honey noodles. I wish it came with icecream because then it would have been an instant hit.

Thank you for the amazing service Team Osh.

Lunch with Philip Chang (co-founder of PF changs Middle East)

Super excited to be at the same lunch table with Mr. Philip chang who is the co-founder of PF changs ME. I’m sure you all must have been to Pf Changs atleast once, their menu and flavors are so genuine that one may find it simply irresistible to not go back. There was so much variety in the dishes I tried that day especially the few items from their newly launched menu were instant hits.

Started off with the famous dynamite shrimps. Even though there are atleast 30 restaurants in Dubai who have this dish on their menu but no one does it like PF changs because they introduced the world to it and they’re still nailing it. The main reason would be the simplicity, thier dynamite sauce is creamy and has a subtle zing unlike the duplicate ones.

The new menu had korean corn pie which was loaded with cheese and tasted quite nice. Although I wish the consistency of the pie should have been a little thicker, the flavors were great.

Also had Singaporean noodles, stir fried chicken, ceaser’s salad, chicken dumplings and so much more. Out of all these dishes the ones that stood out for me were the dumplings, they were so soft and the filling was comfortingly delicious.

They are introducing a kid’s meal called the “Bento Box” which comprises of one portion of rice, fresh fruits, vegetables on a stick, fish or chicken sticks, spring roll and a tangy sauce. My 2 year old got all excited when he saw the box coming on the table and he actually loved it.

Desserts were the best, especially the great wall of chocolate. It was the most delicious cake I have tried in a long time. Felt so satisfying, zero regrets 🙂

I would like to thank Team PF changs the QODE team for organizing such a wonderful lunch. The service was top notch and the team efforts were quite evident. This shall always be a beautiful day in my life as a food blogger.

Parker’s truly a hidden gem

Honestly, I had been planning to go here for ages but then my friend visited me in Dubai and I couldn’t think of an innovative place with delicious food that’s not overly fancy at the same time except for Parker’s. We dressed up casually and headed towards the La Mer branch (Jumeirah 1)

Their staff is so friendly, they flaunt warm smiles all the way. We were seated according to our preferred area despite of the place being full with people. We ordered pretzel chicken strips from appetizers. These were delicious! the portion size was amazing and the chicken was not heavily crusted.

We ordered crispy potato chicken slider, chicken shawarma slider and Parker’s fried chicken burger. Along with truffle fries that were super gorgeous. The sliders were great, buns were velvety soft but I think the flavors can be improved a bit in terms of the chicken patty that was not much spiced and felt a tad bit bland. But overall the sliders were pretty good.

Truffle fries were the winners! they were covered in cheesy mushroom (beschamel kinda) sauce and the flavor of garlic in there was pretty evident and that’s why I loved these!

I bet most of you are just reading this for desserts 🙂 I hear ya! Yes, the dessert was outrageously good. I ordered the “Pull me” Bubble brownie that rocked my world. It was a sinful combination of dark chocolate brownie underneath thick vanilla icecream underneath chocolate bubbles slathered in hot chocolate sauce. If this doesn’t make you drool, I’m concerned about you dude 😉
