Figaro's Pizza, Another Fail..

Figaro's Pizza
Here comes me, trying to be cool and going out to all NEW places when I am really hungry! Well, here comes a free advice, if you are really hungry, go to places you know :p
To be honest Figaro’s Pizza is not new, but I didn’t try it before, I am more a "Pizza Hut" fan. I was checking on Groupon the other day and I saw Figaro’s Pizza having a nice offer, very cheap price, so I said why not! What am gonna loose!!
I tried the Veggie Pizza, it was “OK”, if you will compare it to Pizza Hut totally not WOW
Cheese Sticks were OK..
Cheese bread was huge!! I was shocked when I saw them in a size of a blanket :p
Veggie Farfelle Pasta, TOO TOO oily, I couldn’t eat it, there was a huge thick layer of orange coloured oil sleeping underneath it :p
Oh, and the Veggie Calzone!! SUX, the dough was wet instead of fluffy and nice, it wasn't like how a pizza dough should be!! YUCK
Hmmmmmmmmm, will I go to Figaro’s Pizza again!! No, there are much better places for pastas..
If I am craving pizza there are “again” much fancier places for pizza, or even if I am craving JUNK pizza, I do LOVE Pizza hut. I will simply go to Pizza Hut..
Figaro’s Pizza was totally not the place for me..

Horrible Jad Restaurant

JAD Restaurant
Name: JAD Restaurant
Location: Al Khaledya , Abu Dhabi
Tel: 02 667 5445
Cuisine: Arabic
Price: Dhs 30-100
There is this old Egyptian Restaurant called JAD that I never tried and I see it all the time, so I though why not trying it for couple of days. I will see if the food they offer is good and I will have a new restaurant to write about too!!?? So thing won’t go very wrong!!?? Right?? Whom am I fooling!!??
Ok, 1st day wasn’t that bad, I had some vegetarian Foul (Fava Beans) and Falafel Sandwiches, they were “OK” nothing WOW about it

I was encouraged the next day to order something stronger :p
Soooooooo, I called JAD and ordered stuffed vine leaves, which was totally horrible, crispy, dry and yucky to the MAX

Then came my other shock for AED 30 for that amount you usually get a FULL amazing Kebab plate ((FYI “the best kebab plates in Abu Dhabi is for only AED 25 at Lebanese flower restaurant”..
The one I got from JAD had one had only 4 pieces of chicken and only 1 Kebab which was cut into 3 pieces!!

but the sides were good, hummus and yogurt and other stuff..
This was the creepiest strangest scariest soup I've ever seen before, I didn't even had the courage to try it, It went directly out the window :p
Ohhhhhhhhhhh and the worst!!?? Chicken Beryani, the Chicken was SOOOOO disgusting smelly and goes that I was this close to vomit, Even the rice had watery stuff in between!!?? how disgusting is that??!!

Ohhhhhhhhhh and here comes the dessert!!?? the looks say it all !!??
Creme Caramel!! totally burnt!! and a tasteless rice pudding!!
What the hell!! How bad can you be to have a restaurant!!??
People around here usually say Egyptian restaurants are cheap, dirty and the worst!! but I never believed it till today!! MAN they pissed the hell outta me..
So, Yeaaaah, JAD!!?? welcome to my X List..

Traditional Emirati Meals! Come here :D Reem Al Bawadi

Reem Al Bawadi


Name: Reem Al Bawadi
Location: Muroor , Abu Dhabi
Tel: 02 4488 969
Cuisine: Emirati/Gulf cuisine
Price: Dhs 30-100

“Reem Al Bawadi” is TOTALLY not the place for vegetarian people.
Most of you darlings are not familiar with Arabic/Gulf cuisine,.. Well today I will let you all know about it :D
This place offers only Arabian Gulf/ Emirati food, if you know these countries or you have been here at least once in your lifetime, then you will know they eat MEAT like crazy, beef, lamb, chicken and even camel :p "which I personally hate, I hardly eat chicken breast only"

To brief it, most of the meals in my country are rice with lamb or chicken in different styles and different cooking methods..

The lunch comes in a big box, contains the main meal with 2 different sauces (yogurt and fresh spicy tomatoes salsa). It looks cool and clean if you will compare it to other Emirates Gulf restaurants.
Reem Al Bawadi upgraded a bit from the other typical Gulf/Yamani/Emirati Restaurants that deliver the food in a plastic plate and hand it to you a plastic bag. Actually, this gave the place few extra thumps up compared to others..
The 1st VERY traditional and popular dish here is "Harees", which is basically wheat is soaked overnight, then simmered in water along with meat and butter. Any remaining liquid is strained and the mixture is beaten and seasoned, It is really good, but I know it doesn't look that good :p
A huge Harees dish for only AED 25, it was good

Bokhari chicken for ONLY AED25 and that orange rice had an AMAZING flavour..and I just love how the box looks :p

Qursan, it was my 1st time trying it, it was thin layers of bread, covered with vegetable stew for only AED 10 (didn't like it, too much oil on top) but loved the vegetarian part of it :p

here is another strange new meal that I tried, called "Mathlootha" same price AED 25 for a whole huge BOX, chicken is covered with fried onions
Ok, so you guys have an Idea now about what I suffer every day with our FULL of MEAT PROTEIN Cuisine here in the Gulf Area :D *just kidding* I can always go veggie as much as I can since I really DO hate seafood and red meat :p

Veggie people <3 Don't hate me :D
