Where: Ramada junction, between QNB and Maghrabi opticals
When: 3 am to 10.30 am (3 am! It’s hard for us to believe, if any of our readers experiences breakfast at this hour, let us know)
What’s on the menu: Traditional persian food comprising eggs, meat etc. Expect to find items like Shak Shuka, Nashef Chicken, Kawara Pacha
What we ate:
I had a shak shouka, (can I say egg curry in other words?) served with fresh persian bread.They start serving breakfast really early, so it’s great for people looking for some breakfast when the sun’s bright but not intense. Taste wise, I found it much better than Manaret Beirut. Drinks had to be forgone because of the reasons Kavi will tell you in a bit and a cola early morning would be a call to diabetes from a hotline.
Kavi: The last time I remember having delicious Qima was when I was in school ages ago and would eat Qima sandwiches after queuing up at the portacabin canteen in the hot sun. In an effort to rekindle old memories, I ended up ordering Qima at Shater Abbas.
What did we have for drinks, you ask? Well, we asked for Vimto because it was on the menu and they didn’t have it. We then asked for juices (they had about 13 listed on the menu; an ominous sign maybe?) and they had none of that either. So then, we though a bottle of water might be reasonable and they didn’t have that too.
The Qima tasted good but it was heavy (and nothing like what it tasted in school). It had a strong home-made flavor to it but was very more peas than meat.
The portion size is quite generous so one order is good for two.
HanI: OK (dear readers, do accept this as a valid verdict)
