Pro Tip: My aba jee (who was a certified chef and owner of a fast food cafe in England for more than a decade before he came back to Pakistan) told me that the fries are fried in fresh oil if they aren't pale yellow and the oil doesn't soak in the paper after they are cold. It just should put white stain and the fries shouldn't get soggy.
@brownsisbofficial is one of the very few places which passed this test.
My "food should be fresh" rant was also catered.
I have already been saying a lot about how much I loved the place, so let's talk about the food now.
Where: Browns, F7,Islamabad.
1. French fries
2. Brown's special beef steak (the only one available)
3. Pesto pizza, thin crust
1. I already said about the fries. They were very light on stomach. And look at how nicely they are served.
2. I like my steak on sizzler but nvm. Fresh meat, nicely cooked. Great sauce with generous amount of mushrooms. The sautéed veggies were a little off.
3. I don't want to talk about it 😭
Do you see it in the picture?... Yes, the end crust of three slices was burned... and it's supposed to be thin but soft. I couldn't cut the crust with knife after 10 minutes. (Yeah yeah I disgrace pizza by eating it with knife and fork, I have my reasons 😂) The ingredients were very fresh tho. It was my first try of pesto sauce and I think it's too bitter for my taste, will eat somewhere else to decide whether it's always of this taste or not.
4. Average cup of coffee
5. Fresh and light margarita.
P.S I will be going there again for their desserts because they look wow!
So Finally...... We decided to step out of our hybernation,hate for crowd and the sun and go out to eat. Took out our list for the newest popin's around the town and settled to visit the much hyped @cafeaylantoislamabad.
Like always locations first; Gol Market F6 Markaz Kohsar Road, Islamabad.
Secondly the food(although eating is our first priority 😕) The menu is a huge one you can selet from all day gourmet menu to their classics everything unusual is there. The menus one of a kind, I must say 💜
Chicken Jalapeno, Chicken and Avocado grilled sandwiches, just as always Pina Colada and Mint Margarita for the drinks were the picks. Firstly the complimentry Cruditès 😆 I loved it the dip was great. Now the main course, the Jalapeno Chicken was very nicely done, the sauce had a great taste and the side baked potatoes were nicely done but the veggies lacked that much needed flavour kick 😑. The Chicken Avocado sandwiches... they were legit, the flavours nicely combined and the bread nicely grilled 10/10 for that. The drinks were straight from heaven and the Colada is approved as my fav one in town.
The interior of the place is so nicely done, with wood and nature themed display.. you don't experience this quiet often. The staff was great and quiet helpfull and their ambience was to compliment. The only complaints we have about the place is the portion of the food they serve which I personally thing is quiet obvious that you should not expect bouts of food being served to you at a high end resturant but still we have complains 😉. The café has gained attention in a short time span and we wish them all the best.
PS: The presentation of the food is like an art piece 😍 so get it clicked before dunkin' in.
Hey guys!! So this post is about Jade café. It's a cute little place right next to Chinatown. Both of these places have totally contrasting mahaul and cuisines, both good though.I've always loved Chinatown. I think the Chinese food on the menu is delish!
I'd kickoff the mini review of Jade by saying that the place itself is better than the food they offer. Their ambiance and decor is super chic and really contemporary. They offer both indoor and outdoor seating (which is always a plus!). It's pretty obvious that I love the jaggah so now coming to the the food; I just have to say that I was a little disappointed. 😔 It was good but not like great.
For starters we ordered their nachos (4/5) which were served with two different dips and this was sort of the only item that I liked. For the main course I ordered their Tuscan chicken (2.5/5) which was basically fettuccine pasta 🍝. Nothing special. My friends ordered the honey mustard chicken(3.5/5). They loved it. I, for one do not enjoy honey ka combination with my savoury food so that was a no no for me. The portions however were a good size! #blogger#bloggerlife#instablog#instaphoto#foodie#cafejade#chinatown#tuscanchicken#honeymustardchicken#mintmargarita#nachos#fries#food#justyouraveragebrowngirl#islamabad#pakistan#hijabi
