From the moment you step inside Cafe Baku, you be will be transported to Azerbaijan. The wooden and rustic feel along with the charcoal burning smell will take you directly to Baku. The interiors are stunning and one of the best in City Walk. Everything about is impressive.
We started with some fresh bread which was remarkably fluffy and fresh. It came with a side of sour cream. For starters, we got a salad, which had organic plum tomatoes imported from Baku. Loved the cherries in the salad.
Our server suggested the soup – Dushbara – I’d highly recommend it along with the Gyurza which is the Azerbaijani dumplings. It came with a dip of yogurt. We also tried the Meat Qutab, it was delicious as a mini bite.
For the main course, we got some Lula kebabs with fried potatoes and Pilaf. Another dish we got was Chicken pilaf which had a base and thick gravy of walnuts. The kebabs were excellent and I’d go back for them again to have it with the fresh bread or the pilaf!
For dessert, we tried the Baklava which was interestingly made of Walnut and less sweet than the Turkish one. We also tried the tea with thyme as a good end of our very enjoyable meal.
Baku Cafe is a must place to visit. I think it might just be the hidden gem in City Walk. Overall, the food was excellent and so was the service. Our server Vladimir gave us great insights and details of every dish. Highly recommended!
