    Fen Restaurant and Cafe

    Fen is a minimalistic cozy little restaurant and café located in Sharjah Heritage Village. White colored theme with a little pop of color here and there! Very simple, yet very modern and elegant. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Fen had launched their breakfast menu recently and I was eager to try out some dishes. I went for something unusual. Ochuzake is a Japanese breakfast dish. Steamed rice topped with salmon flakes and seaweeds and you pair it with your choice of tea – corn tea, Sencha or Genmaicha. I paired it with Sencha. I love rice and so this dish was probably the breakfast I wouldn’t…

    We’ve got Coffee, we’ve got tea. But now we’ve got Coffeetea. I’m sure there are a few who loves coffee and tea equally (just like me) and sometimes it’s pretty hard to decide on what you wanna drink. Like how Dubai is the land of impossibe, a cute little cafe in Waterfront market Deira called Coffeetea has invented a new signature drink called ‘coffeetea’ where in you got both coffee and tea in one cup. As much as it sounds impossible, it does taste fantastic. You could drink it two ways. One, you could have the tea first and then the coffee or second, you can mix the two and…

    Call it Yummy, a fun quirky café in Rolla run by a mother-daughter duo. The atmosphere in the café is so welcoming and warm. It has a personal touch to it because the café has no waiters, it’s the fun duo that serve the customers. From the colorful Bollywood themed interiors, to the music everything screams perfection for a hangout spot with your family or friends!     Getting into food now, the place specializes in north indian snacks like chaats, pav bhaji etc. We started off with Pav Bhaji Fondue.

    Aappa Kadai

    Spotted in the heart of Karama (opposite Karama Park), this place serves justice to its name! The ambience is very basic and minimal, with dark green seating and wooden brown tables. They’ve got an area where one can see appams made live right in front of you! They’ve got an amazing list of the varieties of crisp steaming hot appams that one cannot resist! I tried three of their special appams! Chicken Kheema appam was definitely something different. Imagine having small soft pieces of chicken in your appam! Egg Masala Appam was slightly more spicier and had the taste of delicious egg masala. Chili Chutney Appam, well as the name…
