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…
