So I was hoping this restaurant would make it to my #hiddengems series but unfortunately this one doesn’t make the cut this time. So with the much created hype by all the bloggers visiting this place, me and a few hungry friends of mine decided to make the drive to this very place.
The interiors of this place are beauuutiful ! Like , we loved it. With all the lights and the quirky cushions and the coffee quotes.
With me being a veggie , we decided to pick 1 appetizer and 1 main to get started with .
We went for the :
Japanese Cheese Balls : AED 35
This is the one we were very excited for cuz of the jalapeños and Cheese combo. But much to our disappointment .. it wasn’t that great. The hot sauce in it tasted a bit weird. Or atleast it felt so for my indian taste buds. More than anything what was sad was the portion size !!! We paid AED 35 and there were just 3 Cheeseballs.
Penne Pomodoro Basilico : AED 35
Claimed to have pink sauce with tomato , ricotta , spinach and mozzarella cheese we were looking forward to this .. but again , the taste was a bit off. It tasted more like a Red Sauce than a Pink . I’m a pasta person and I can say I have had better.
Well , for one sitting this was all we had. The ambience was amazing , but the things we ordered didn’t live up to the hype.
Although , we do intend to visit this place for its coffee and cake some morning.
But Crafted Blends, I expected more.
That’s all for this one you guys .. see y’all in the next one 🙂
