So here is what I’m gonna do .. I’m starting a series called #hiddengems where I take y’all through the little gems in and around UAE .. the ones which not everyone know about and the ones you just add an insta post on and people start asking you ‘OMG where is this?!’
Eventually everyone would take to Zomato and figure it out anyway ; but nonetheless I’m gonna highlight it for the lazy.
We went there on a weekday post work and my god this area was buzzing. The street it’s located at is called ‘Karak Street’ or in more famous terms University City Road.
If you are directionally challenged like myself .. please do use Google Maps. It’ll be worth the data consumption.. trust me.
Now there is a chain of restaurants and little cafes here .. and Rabiee Al Shay is one of the littlest ones. Here’s what it looks like :
And say hello to this guys cuz he makes amazing Crepes :
Coming to the food , we ordered :
Oman Chips Cheese Paratha : AED 4
This was the classic paratha , Oman chips and cheese combo. I have never really tried the famous Oman Chips roll from anywhere before so I can’t really compare it but I can say that it was worth it for the price paid.
Cheetos Chicken Roll : AED 7
Cheetos with Chicken is all I can say about this one. My non vegetarian friends loved it. So I can vouch for this one.
Nutella Waffle Stick : AED 20
Now this was my favorite out of the lot. The waffle was not to crisp not to moist it was just perfect. It came in a neat packing and looked like heaven. It tasted as good as it looked. Check it out –
If that doesn’t convince you I don’t know what would?!
Lotus Crepe : AED 26
Now this was a mix of emotions. The sauce was a mix of lotus and white chocolate. The sauce combo was wayyyy to sweet like it wouldn’t be possible to have the entire thing as it would be too much sweet in one go. A bit overloaded I would say. It seemed a bit overpriced for the size. But 3 of us shared it so it kinda made it worth it I guess. We couldn’t have finished it without each other. The packing however was very neatly done.
So overall our experience at this place was good. It certainly has a few things I’d go back for. The only downside was they have stopped their famous ‘Karak’ and don’t serve that anymore. 😭
Okay I’m done cribbing!
Make that road trip for the Waffle stick !
This is where you should drive to –
