Barsha Heights is buzzing with residential and commercial buildings. The community previously known as Tecom has been rebranded and renamed as Barsha Heights. It’s a vibrant and popular community that has become an integral part of Dubai’s diverse landscape. The restaurant scene is growing as well!
We tried Amigo Pastry serving Damascene cuisine, located at Al Shiba building right across the Green community. The interiors are bright but small with an open kitchen. You can even sit outdoors if the weather is right. Amigo Pastry takes pride in serving fresh chicken and meat and doesn’t use frozen foodstuff.
We ordered a cocktail and a fresh Orange juice. They were decent, refreshing and complimented our food.
Mezze & Salad
We got a plate of hummus which was fresh and prepared in-house.
The fattoush salad was fresh as well but a slightly more on a tangier side. It had a lot of fried bread on top which we like on fattoush!
We got Safiha – which was meat on a flat bread and some Kashkaval & Muhammara. We enjoyed the latter more as it was spicier and the cheese was pretty good.
The Shawarma platter came with fries and garlic sauce. The chicken was wrapped in a saj bread. The portion was quite big and tasty when we smothered it in the garlic sauce.
Chicken Fajita was kind of a miss. It was very tangy and the chicken was over cooked. It also came with a side of fried and was topped with cheese. Pretty sure it would make a better sandwich than a platter.
First up was Chicken Kabsa, which came with a side of an amazing yogurt sauce. Not many restaurants in Dubai serve Kabsa and we are glad to have found one that does. It was topped with roasted almonds we enjoyed the rice and the chicken.
We wanted to try the something more authentic and the suggestion was Dish of the day – Broad beans and Lamb with rice vermicelli. We loved the tenderness of the meat and the tomato sauce was excellent.
Judge us by the lavish spread below and yes we were too stuffed to try the dessert as they also serve Nutella manakeesh.
We are glad to have tried the Damascene cuisine. I would definitely recommend the Safiha for meat lovers and kashkaval manakeesh for starters. The Kabsa is an absolute must try and do ask for the dish of the day!
