BBQ delight is an amazing option for those who loves to indulge in mouthwatering BBQ items. Mostly Pakistani restaurants here in Dubai trying to cater Indian and Pakistani Palates seems confused with the use of spices and the flavors. Even being the same genre of dishes in Indo Pak, the flavors are some what different in both the regions. Like some spices are more obvious in south indian food in the same way north has different flavor but more close to the Pakistani taste.
Surprisingly I never tried it before until I got an invite. We made our way to the downtown branch, amidst of many other options of restaurant BBQ delight allures not only desi but other nationalities as well. You will get ample of parking in the basement and in night the down town all decked up with chilli lights will surely delight you eyes.
Upon entering you will get to see Pakistani famous truck art on the wall. The colorful hanging on two of the wall is the highlight of the decor here then the famous quotes in Urdu let you reminisce Paki street life.
This place is spacious enough to throw a party or any family celebrations, they even have a small kids area to entertain kids while the parents enjoy their meal. Buffet and Ala cart both are available here. We preferred to go with the Ala Cart and ordered some of their best
What we ordered?
- Malai Tikka
- Kasturi Fish
- Curry Pakora
- Chicken Biryani
- Cold Arabic Mezze
We started our culinary experience with fresh watermelon juice to beat the heat. Then we geared up with some fresh out of the oven Afghani Naan with Cold Arabic Mezze. Afghani Naan is like a long oval roti, it was so fresh and hot that I could fill myself up with it alone.
Malai Tikka and Kasturi Fish both were soft like pillow specially fish. Malai tikka was well marinated and grilled to perfections where as kasturi fish despite the marination felt more salty it was something I was unable to stop eating. I toned downed the salt flavor by pairing it up with yogurt dip.
Curry Pakora was the one we choose from vegetarian section. It had right kick of spices and sourness. I had a spoons of it. Haleem was my husband’s choice and he seemed quite happy with it.
Being a biryani lover, I never forget to try biryani when ever I dine in desi( Pakistani/ Indian) restaurants and I must say it was quite impressive here with aromatic long grain rice and flavorful earthy flavor.
We ended our session with a cup of hot Karak Tea and Green Tea and happily came back with a plan of coming back soon here to try out other dishes from the menu.
