KRUSH BURGER – DUBAI

…السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

I think I am the last person in Dubai to try Krush Burger!

This joint has a short menu with 4 burger choices, french fries or sweet potato tots, milkshakes and soft drinks. You could order the two mini burgers as a combo with a side (46 DHS). And you can refill your soft drinks. The bill came out to be 104 DHS (for 2 people).

This was our meal, they would put everything in a tray but it looked SO good.

French Fries & Sweet Potato Tots :
The french fries was crispy from the outside but soft from the inside, just how I like them! The sweet potato tots was something different than the usual. But I am not sure how well it goes with the burgers. Would definitely go for french fries only next time!
krush2

Original & Philly :
The original consisted of grilled onion, lettuce, tomato, american cheese & house sauce. The Philly consisted of grilled mushrooms and onions, aged provolone, & red pepper aioli.

Buffalo Chicken & Cowbell :
The Buffalo Chicken was by far my favorite. If you enjoy something spicy then this is the burger for you. Cowbell had beef bacon, crispy onions, smoked gouda & BBQ sauce.

Personally, I would recommend a person to try the Buffalo Chicken & Cowbell with french fries. Things might get messy because their burgers are saucy.

Opening Hours : Sun-Sat 11:00AM – 10:00PM
Location : Between Murooj Rotana and Cafe2go, financial centre road.

SMASH BURGER – KSA

…السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Burger joints are popping out all around ! I for one judge a burger place by the quality of their bread, chicken/meat and fries! I tried this place called Smash Burger that opened up in Saudi Arabia. The bread was really good. The burgers were not heavy at all, and you can finish a whole burger without feeling bloated. The ingredients were fresh. You had to order everything individually.

Here is what we had:
(SR = Saudi Reyal)

SAUDI SMASH CHICKEN (32 SR)
This burger includes chedder cheese, tomato, red onion, leaf lettuce, pickles and garlic sauce on egg bread.
smash1

CLASSIC W/ CHEESE ( 28 SR )
This burger includes american cheese, ketchup, leaf lettuce, tomato slices, red onion, pickles and smash sauce on egg bun.
smash2

BBQ, CRISPY BEEF, CHEDDAR ( 32 SR )
This burger includes bbq sauce, crispy beef, cheddar cheese and haystack onions on egg bun.
smash3

SWEET POTATO SMASHFRIES ( 10 SR )
Which was deep fried (defies the reason why people order it in the first place!) But was good!

CHIKALICIOUS – DUBAI

…السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Today I visited the newly opened! Award winning! Dessert club! All the way from New York! In Dubai! EXCUSE THE SUGAR RUSH. After the waiter/ress hands you the menu, you are then greeted by Chef David, which may I add is the nicest and funniest Chef I have ever met! Just one of those people you instantly love.

ChikaLicious is located in The Village Mall at Jumeirah Road. They offer a variety of cakes, e-clairs, doughssants, cookies and many more. You can choose to experience to sample three desserts at The Dessert Bar. Here is what I ordered:

– Orea Doughssant (25 AED):
Surrounded by sugar and a crunchy croissant from the outside, as soon as you break in oreo mousse is squeezed out.
Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

– Vanilla Milk Crepe Cake (35 AED):
This cake is not as heavy as it looks. It was really light and soft. It delivers exactly what you expect when you see it.
Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

– Rose Doughssant (25 AED):
Save the best for last! Just so good… Might look “average” but as soon as you break in the doughssant, its like a waterfall! It just oozes out custard goodness!
Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

This place is A MUST visit if you want to be served some heavenly desserts!

A DAY IN KUWAIT

…السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

I thought it would be a good idea to do a post about restaurants a person should visit if they had “one day” to spend in a country. Kuwait is the first of this kind of a series. Kuwait offers a variety of options to explore. This post would include a place for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

For breakfast we visited a place called “Cocoa Room” which will soon be opened in Dubai (The Galleria). Be careful because it is only open from 8AM to 12PM.

– Caramelized Hot Chocolate with lots and lots of marshmallow:
CocoaRoom1

– Banoffee pancake with vanilla ice-cream:
CocoaRoom3

– Oreo pancake with chocolate ice-cream:
Cocoaroom2

For lunch we visited “Pizzetta” which is located next to Cocoa Room. They offer unique types of pizza that you would not find anywhere! We were seated outside while it was nice and sunny.

– Burratta (4.500 KD):
pizzetta1

– Mexicano Pizza (4.500 KD):
pizzetta2

– Cheese Burger Pizza (5.950 KD):
pizzetta3

For dinner we headed over 360 Mall and ate in “B+F Open Fire Grill”. As you enter the restaurant, it is dark with loud music. Since we were a very big group, we were seated in a place that is almost covered. You are then greeted with a complimentary drink (apple juice) and menu.

– Tokyo Salad (4 KD):

– Black Pepper Tenderloin Lollipops (4.5 KD):
