Tresind wowed us again – Iftar 2017

Iftar at Tresind is become more of a ritual for me. One that cannot be missed. Last night I fulfilled this ritual at the beautiful restaurant located in Nassima Royal Hotel. Tresind’s Iftar menu this Ramadan is priced at AED 150++ and follows the classic Mughlai concept of Kebabs, Curries and Biryani.

While we were waiting to break our fast, we were served a refreshing concoction of Almond Lassi. Perfect combination of nutrition and hydration, this chilled drink makes a good choice to cool down an empty stomach. Loved how they have covered the glasses in banana leaves to give it a little rustic touch.

The Vintage Room – for a 60’s appeal

Last night we decided to try out the newest spot in town for Iftar. The Vintage Room located in Century Plaza Jumeirah, sticks to its name in terms of ambience and interiors. The minute you step in, it feels like you have been transported to a 60’s ballroom party, all attributed to golden chain accents, printed sofa seats, velvet covered chairs, glossy table cloths and impeccable service. They even have a grand piano in their restaurant and you will be able to catch a piano performance by one of their very own staff members after Ramadan.

While their Iftar menu focuses mainly on Indian cuisine, barring one pasta, the restaurant otherwise flaunts a lovely mix of Indian and Italian specialties. This means you can enjoy a biryani alongside a pizza, both authentic in their own right.

Bring back childhood with Season 3 at Carnival by Tresind

After taking us down a 90’s themed nostalgia lane with Season 1, and treating us to suburban Indian delicacies with Season 2, Carnival by Tresind is all set to bring childhood memories back with its brand new Season 3 menu.

The welcome, for a change, is not characterized by bubbles, but with a petite bag placed on the table, that exudes all that childhood nostalgia while waiting for our admiration and praise. Printed with pretty florals, this one houses our napkin and glass, and also brings back memories of playing dress up with friends using these miniature bags.

While I still relish all the wonderful flavors of food I brought back with me, let’s hop on for a quick tour of the Season 3 menu over this blog post.

Amidst art and heritage at Fen Restaurant

Nothing meets the definition of ‘hidden gem’ quite like this. Throughout my 2 hour ride to Sharjah during rush hour on a Tuesday evening, I kept hoping the restaurant would be worth all that effort. I am glad I wasn’t proved wrong. Located amidst the hustle and bustle of Mureijah Square Sharjah, lies a haven of peace and tranquillity. The Sharjah Art Foundation is an oasis that assists in the flourishing of art and culture, showcasing traditional values with a touch of modern appeal. The hidden gem here was the recently opened Fen Restaurant. A dream child of Sheikha Hoor, this restaurant is nothing less of time travel. Housed in a traditional structure with wooden doors and windows, minimal décor and a very soothing vibe, Fen instils a feeling of calm amidst chaos from the very minute you step it.

Popular among tourists, locals and art lovers, you are quite likely to stumble upon this restaurant while strolling around the museum and art area near Sharjah corniche. In addition to art galleries and a mosque, this complex also accommodates a compact library and Fen Café amidst the heritage inspired ‘Arabian house’ structure, that allows them to cater to a wider audience.

This one is worth a visit if you are located in Dubai. And a must if you reside in Sharjah or Ajman.

Read on for my review and photos of some beautifully crafted dishes.
