Yesterday I had a lovely (and fishy!) lunch at Long Bar’s at Rotana. We hadn’t realized, until it came to the table, that it was seafood! But, scrumptious seafood that was!
For the appy’s we had calamri and prawns…deep fried goodness! Properly deep fried and very delicious.
Ok let’s start with these calamaris! Where did they come from?? I have been to many restaurants all across Canada and in Dubai/Sharjah – not once were they this HUGE!
I don’t normally order calamari, because it comes small, chewy and sometimes hard – but this one was literally on steroids – and frickin’ delish!! Exsqueeze me!!
But, it’s totally true 😛
The calamari if the size of your balm and amazing for a size with your beers at Long Bar’s..
For dinner we had salmon and fish – basically all finger foods in the perfect atmosphere!
The fish, well all of it really, was juicy & super moist – far from dry! So, the chef knows his stuff.
-How would you rate the taste of your meal:
The taste and flavor was over the top, considering it was deep fried items. You can tell it was either fresh or new oil they used. Cooked to perfection!
-Please rate your visit on value for the money:
The server was awesome, he has some great recommendations, but we stuck with fish! It was just one of those fishy days 😛
Relaxed, ‘be yourself’ joint, kick up feet, pull up a chair, have a good laugh and let it all hang loose. Great to go with the boys, too..
The waiter is professional and friendly – reminded me of home. You don’t get that very much here!! (Well, maybe in Sharjah anyway 😦 )
-What to order:
The waiter offered spicy Indian dishes – which I normal love -I’m a hot and spicy girl – but, the fish is actually really great, too. Even the deep fry-ables 🙂
What I loved:
That it reminded me of home.
I recommend this location for a beer and an appy! Watch the game and have some fun! 😛
Have a lovely day everyone!
