Last night me and Asif got the pleasure in breaking our fast at this amazing American restaurant in Abu Dhabi. The environment literally screams romantic! You have dinner by candle light which really sets the mood. The decor and environment is something I would recommend for the guy’s here who wish to do something amazing for their girlfriends/wife. We actually got to see an engagement last night going on it was the cutest thing ever! So needing a romantic vibe this place has it!
Anyways we started our night off by getting introduced to our server Roldan. If your wanting excellent service and someone who is happy to answer questions this is the guy to ask for while dinning here. I can not rave about how fantastic he was during our dinning experience enough or do it justice. With his recommendation we started with some excellent appetizers and some drinks.
For our starter we decided to try the Caesar salad.
*Crisp Romaine Lettuce, Parmesan Croutons, Creamy Caesar Dressing*
The amount of dressing was just perfect, fresh strips of Parmesan cheese, and right quantity for a nice starter. Asif and I enjoyed the salad a lot and even loved the way it was presented. It was simple yet elegant and my pictures don’t do it justice.
However, we order another appetizer that we also halved which was the Chicken Shawarma Bites.
The bites contained Grilled Marinated Chicken, Datarin Tomato, Tzatziki Sauce. The tzatziki sauce I really enjoyed the hubby didn’t as much but anybody who loves greek food this sauce is very common. The sauce is normally a nice blend of yogurt, cucumbers, and salt&pepper. I loved how the shawarma is displayed in a nice square shape. The bites literally remind me of sushi just in Shawarma form. The bites also were packed full with chicken as you can tell from the pictures. If you love shawarma you will defiantly love this starter.
During our appetizers we ordered some Mojito Mocktails.
We tried the strawberry and Pineapple mock-tails which were AMAZING!!! My favorite was the strawberry one but if you ask Asif his was the pineapple one. These are an excellent drink for the ones who cant drink alcohol and want to have a nice fruity drink. The bartender did an fantastic job in making our drinks last night everyone we had was mixed exceptionally well so if your wanting to just stop by for a drink or even an non-alcoholic drink in this place would be amazing.
For our main course we ordered the steak dinner for two. This comes with two sides and about 2 ounces of steak. Plenty of steak for two people as we had plenty between the two of us and some people it might feed 3-4 depending on how they eat. My family we both are food lovers so it was a good amount for the two of us.
Our first side was the tater tots
These are an excellent side to have with the steak instead of the fries! To me its almost a crime to have steak and not some potato side dish and I was raised in the south your suppose to have some potato with your steak either: french fries, mash potato, season potato, or tater tots.
The second side dish we had was Forest Mushrooms
The forest mushrooms had butter and some mixed herbs. The mushrooms were yummy had to me more of a garlic taste but I love garlic this side dish Asif probably ate 90% as he went crazy over the mushrooms. So if you love mushrooms or your partner does I would recommend this side dish for the meal of two.
With the steak meal for two you get two of their famous sauces. These sauces were fantastic!! The white one is an green pepper corn sauce and the dark on is a red wine sauce reduction. Both were amazing but here is where me and Asif argue. To me the pepper corn is my favorite I am going to look up a recipe to try to make some at home. Asif favorite was the red wine one it reminded him more of steak sauce.
However after a fantastic main course the next final test is the dessert section.
I ordered their brownie with french vanilla ice cream. OMG this dessert was amazing you love chocolate this is the dessert I highly recommend. The Brownie was nice and warm and extremely soft the ice cream was heavenly. Girls this is our dessert it was like I have died and gone to chocolate heaven!
Asif isn’t a chocolate person I rule it as a guy thing. So he ordered their Caramel banana Brûlée!
This dessert was fantastic he loved it! He even demanding me to learn how to make it as he is already talking about going back for the dessert. If your needing something sweet at the end of the meal and not a huge chocolate lover this is an excellent alternative. I took a bite it was tasty. This would be an excellent end to a excellent meal.
Ending our meal we decided to drink come chai/tea. We ended up picking the Earl Grey it was a black tea which we added sugar and some milk. The tea was actually pretty nice and an excellent end to a nice romantic dinner.
So if your looking for an excellent place in our case for Iftar or just something with a nice romantic vibe I would highly recommend them. Specially with the weather becoming colder soon they have a nice outside section which would be amazing too sit outside too as for the view is breathe taken.
