Experiencing Jamie’s Italian

So what do you do when an invite from Jamie’s Italian, a restaurant under the name of your dream chef, Jamie Oliver, makes its way into your inbox? You accept it of course!

As much as the whole idea of visiting it was exciting, I was more enthralled to try the Chef’s specialties. Continue reading “Experiencing Jamie’s Italian”

Spoilt for Choice at Tony Roma’s

Tony Roma’s is not new to people living in the U. A . E. Being appreciated for good American food, the restaurant is a favourite of many. An invitation to visit their branch located in Wasl Vita was received with extreme happiness by me.

Tony Roma’s has just launched a few new items on their menu, and I recommend them entirely. We started our meal with a few drinks, of which I liked my berry mocktail.

Our appetizers included the much loved Kickin’ Shrimps, Chicken Quesadillas and South Miami Fried Shrimps.

I really liked the Kickin’ Shrimps, though I would like for it to be more fried and crispy.

The Fried Shrimps were most favoured of the three. Crispy shrimps went well with the Tartar sauce. And well, the dish had fries and who doesn’t love them?

Moving on, the main course, we started with the Carbonara. This was probably the least favourite dish of mine for the evening. I felt the dish as a whole could do a lot better flavour wise. It felt very bland to my taste buds. Also, I personally feel the presentation of the dish could be worked upon too. Maybe serve it in a bowl instead? It would be easy to scoop out.

A Primetime Burger, Beef Ribs and Rosemary Chicken was also ordered. And the winner of the evening was clearly the chicken! Soft, juicy and perfectly seasoned. Served with coleslaw and boiled veggies. This is something you must order!

I am a great fan of barbecue sauce, so the beef ribs won me over too.

After a rather heavy but fulfilling meal, we ordered the Tony Roma’s special, New York Cheesecake and Chocolate Brownie Sundae (I can never finish a meal without a bit of chocolate 😉 )

Loved the creamy texture of the cheesecake. The strawberry sauce wasn’t overpowering and managed to help retain the original flavour.

All in all, the new additions are worth trying. The branch located in Wasl Vita allows for a good area to sit back and relax with friends and family. To top it all, the servers are quite friendly and very helpful when it comes to suggesting their dishes.

Until next time…

Chocolate and Willy Wonka at Kambaa

The weather in Dubai is just cooling down and what I love more than being outdoors is, being able to settle down with a nice cup of Hot Chocolate or Coffee. Don’t we love those days when all you can think of is indulging in chocolate?

Choco Fantasia – Dip n Dip

I’m sure most of the dessert, or rather, chocolate loving people must have visited this joint at least once in their lifetime. If not, you are seriously doing something wrong in life. Continue reading “Choco Fantasia – Dip n Dip”

Meeting Giuseppe Stanzione

A recent event held at Eataly, Dubai Mall, helped me gain insight about how white truffles can be prepared. Also, thanks to Chef Giuseppe Stanzione, who is amazing at preparing risotto. Loved the dish! The truffles really helped enhance the taste. Continue reading “Meeting Giuseppe Stanzione”

One For The Hunger Pangs – Fuego

Craving Mexican food? Look no further! Fuego is back with a bang, presenting a new menu in a contemporary set up while providing a perfect way to let your hair down after a long day. They have a private dining area, as well as a bar, and to top it up, a relaxing atmosphere. I really like how they play Spanish songs, going with the theme of the restaurant.

A Japanese Wonderland – Sho Cho

A bit too late for this post. This is should have been up some weeks ago, but considering how I am, I wanted it to be perfect. Especially since my experience here was not of an average one. Continue reading “A Japanese Wonderland – Sho Cho”
