Baba Sausage – 01 Mall

  Review The other day, I had to make a quick run for a take away lunch and the nearest place with restaurants from the office is the 01 Mall in Abu Hamour (behind Aramex). Saw this place was opened already so I decided to try it. I ordered the classic sausage sandwich and a “dippy dog”. Their sausages are good as it’s handmade and not the processed ones. The bread they use is a baguette which is nice but it made the sanwich quite heavy. The dippy dog was amazing though! It reminds me of those waffle dogs, the only difference is that their instead of waffle they use some sort of bread coating. (They used a processed hotdog for this) The place has a contemporary feel with a stained glass style window and wood paneled design all over. The restaurant itself is small but it was cleverly designed with high walls to give it that feel of space.  They also have this Bell Buster Challenge wherein you have to finish a set meal in …

The Anvil Rooms – Tornado Tower

Overview: The restaurant is located at the 28th flr. of the Tornado Tower in West Bay.  It has a great food and great view of the Corniche to boot.  Fab Friend and I specifically went out for this restaurant to take advantage of the NY Restaurant Week  celebration. It’s a three course meal (exc. drinks) for QR91 (lunch) and QR138 (dinner), which is really a good deal especially that normal pricing is a bit pricey.  The restaurant interior is cozy, laid-back and romantic  The staff was very welcoming and knowledgeable about their menu. Now, let’s talk about the food.  It was a-freakin’-mazing! From the bread basket up to the last tiny piece of the dessert, the food was flawless. Food Review: Appetizers: Truffled tagliatte, onion puree, roasted wild mushroom and morel foam – Nothing mattered that time except for this food. It commands your full attention, whispers seductively in your ear saying all the words that you’ve been waiting to hear: “I’m all yours”. Mesquite smoked cod and salt baked beetroot, tarragon mayonnaise and horseradish …

Magnolia Bakery (General Review)

Food Review: Fantastic cakes! I mean, the smell coming out from the bakery alone is enough to make you salivate. My favorite is their vanilla cake, hands down  the best one I’ve had. Their savory foods are just average at best, like pastas and stuff. The location (Dar al Salam Mall) is not really that okay as it is open and in front of Carrefour Hypermarket so it can sometimes be distracting with the passing of people and the general crowd noise. Hopefully they’ll have another shop that will open with an outside sitting area and where it’s much quieter. Customer Service Review: So-so, their service is not good nor bad. Price: QR 50 per person (approx.) Returning? Always, for a take away of their vanilla cake 🙂  

Red Lobster: General Review

Food Review: Good food. Serving and taste is consistent in all the times that we’ve been there. Their wood-grilled scallops, shrimps, and lobster tail are a must try. If you’re not a fan of grilled foods, you can opt for the steamed ones. Their clam chowder and lobster bisque are spot on. The only time that blundered was with their mussels. The second time we ordered it, it was very salty and they immediately apologized and changed it when we informed them. Customer Service Review: Their staff is nice, approachable and knowledgeable about their menu. The restaurant ambiance is relaxed and casual. Price Qr 80 per person (approx.) Returning? Definitely!

Longhorn Steakhouse at The Pearl

Food ordered: Honey Wheat Bread (free and “unlimited” according to their menu) Outlaw Ribeye (medium well) with mixed vegetables Shave Prime Ribs (well done) with fries and Ceasar’s salad Dessert Platter* – we actually didn’t get to taste this as they forgot that we ordered for this and we didn’t bother to remind the staff about it anymore   Food Review: Food would’ve tasted good if done correctly Customer Service: Poor Mr. Eats and I decided to celebrate our 5th anniversary at LHSH. We came there at 8PM, and got seated immediately. After a few minutes, our orders were taken and so the wait started. After 10 minutes, the honey wheat bread was served with, what I assumed to be, freshly made butter which were both delicious. We finished the bread and the waiter took the basket but didn’t bother to ask if we would like to have another batch. We waited for about 30 minutes before I had to ask a waiter for the status of our food and he was telling me that …
