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.
Sadak chaap is a small newly opened place in Karama (food street of Dubai). Their menu is simple and full of some beautiful flavors merged together to give you a fulfilling appetite. For readers, who don’t know what a chaap is, its actually small pieces of soya that are marinated in different spices and baked. Soya chaap contains more protein than eggs, meat, fish or milk. It is the best source of protein for vegan foodies who also wish to delve into an arena of flavors.
Their menu has such catchy items like “aam aadmi ki drink” and chaaps belonging to different states from Delhi to Italy. They’ve got it all!
I started off with “Sadak Chaas” that tastes exactly like a mint and chilli chutney but even more intense. Don’t gulp it down like a glass of lassi or you will choke because it has some serious kick of spices. It’s meant to be enjoyed in small sips.
The chaap platter had chaaps from different states. There were delhi chaap, gujrati chaap, rajasthani chaap, haryanvi chaap, lahori chaap and I tell you that every single one of these tasted different. (in a good way)
I know you must be curious about the Italian chaap so let’s discuss this first, it was loaded with creamy cheese and had subtle spiciness to it. The Delhi chaap was similar, only creamy and no cheese.
My favorite chaap was Rajasthani because there were visible chili flakes on it.
Chaap curry was absolutely spot on! tasted so much like butter chicken (even better). The whole wheat paratha that came with it was so soft and tasty. Both paired amazingly well together.
The chaap in curry was velvety soft and melts in the mouth. Its amazing how their chefs manage to give so many flavors to one item.
Also, tried the delhi chaap roll. They actually let you customize your own roll but I was quite happy with their selection of delhi chaap roll in the soft paratha. It was so creamy from the inside. And the mint chutney was its best match.
The jaggery tea was beautiful in terms of flavor and sweet element. Loved it. And guess what? It’s only priced at 3 aed.
Thank you for your hospitality Team Sadak chaap. I applaud your creativity in terms of menu and flavor of the dishes served. Many thanks.
Superchix is the ultimate destination to indulge in delicious burgers, sinful shakes, scrumptious fries and decadent custards. The ambiance is colorful, casual and positive. It was a full house when I walked in so I grabbed the only table available and read the menu thrice before placing my order because I was in a state of conflict regarding the luscious sauces in the burgers and all the flavors on the menu especially their spicy menu that was the highlight of my day.
I just want to start off by telling you all that their staff was super friendly and efficient. Their positive vibes were the reason for this warm smile on the faces.
So I started off with their pistachio milk shake that was lit! I swear I haven’t tried a milk shake that was this tasty before. It was creamy and delicious. I also ordered a lemonade with it and that was perfect as well.
After placing our order, we got chic packs of popcorn to munch on while we wait for the burgers.
We instantly popped these out and gobbled them up until the order arrived. We were so surprised to see the burgers because usually the burgers that we see on the menu or in the pictures but these were huge and the sauces were just dripping as we ate them. These were truly the best burgers especially the hot damn sandwich and double hot sandwich.
We also ordered chicken tenders (fried) and there were so many sauces to choose from but we ended up with the spicy buffalo and honey mustard sauce that paired really well with them. The fried tenders were absolutely tasty, we were constantly dipping them in the sauces and finished them in a matter of minutes.
If these fries don’t make you drool then I don’t what will. These were spot on in terms of toppings, flavor, creaminess and crisp factor. We enjoyed every bit of these.
I also admired the barbecue cheese burger because it had a hint of sweet flavor to it along with the freshly grated cheddar that just turned out so beautiful.
Do not leave superchix without getting these luxurious desserts, they are the showstoppers (quite literally!) I am still swooning over the red velvet custard as it comes with a mini red velvet cake on top, super cute to swap your birthday cake with this year, eh?!
Thank you so much for having us over Team Superchix. You guys are the best!
