Long time no see;b
Btw last week i went to Cairo , cos my aunt came here.. we had soooo much fun . In cairo we stayed at Zamalek area .. One of the things I love most about Zamalek is the vast amount of restaurants that exist in this area, and the possibility to try out almost any cuisine you can imagine.
I am a big foodie and in alex I usually try out at least one new restaurant per month.
Actually this is my first time to give a review about restaurant in cairo .
Kafe Kalik .. A Taste of The Bahamas
3 Bahgat Ali st , Zamalek
( 010 95192580)
I have never had anything close to Bahamian food before , so we were unsure of what to order , but with the help of the waiter we managed to decide on something. J
The service there was very friendly.
There is a good variety of food not only Bahamian food but there is also some Japanese Sushi.
For the starter, I had Kettle Fried Coconut Shrimp
“ coconut battered shrimp ,
deep fried to golden brown
served with tangy range marmalade dipping sauce”
My shirmp looked good and came as golden brown, as claimed in the description , with a bitter sweet orange sauce.
The shrimp still contains the fresh flavour , not overcooked and there was a good crunchiness to the batter
I found the flavour of the saucet to differ from anything i’ve tasted so i would recommend it.
For the main course , I ordered .. Plank Roasted Tamarind Salmon
“ Tamarind glazed salmon oven roasted served
Peas and Rice
The fish was so fresh and it taste very nice like “ikan bakar” maybe because it was wrapped with banana leaf ( daun pisang) .
The sauce was like ikan bakar sauce .
i keep going on and on “ sedap ,sedap” (delicious ).
This dishes was also accompanied with spice fries .
Uncle Ali ordered Grilled Fillet - Mignon
“ charbroiled fillet served
your choice of ( tamarind soy syrup –mushroom sauce – pepper sauce ) fire roasted pepper ,
grilled onin and fries”
I love it . it really lives up to it s name ‘ Charbroiled steak ‘ - to broil on a rack over hot charcoal
From outside it looked like overcooked but actually it were nicely cooked , it is still reddish raw on the inside . i love this kind of steak which still preserve its taste and not too dry .
Last but not least Grilled Shrimp Fettuccine
“ fettuccine noodles tossed in lemon butter sauce
topped with parmesan cheese .
served with grilled shrimps “
What did i like about this restaurant ??
Honestly speaking , at first i just think that there is nothing special about this restaurant but when i came in i saw how the shisha place is being separated from the common area , so u don’t have to be annoyed by the smokes .
If u are not smoking .
Secondly because of their atmosphere and lighting is so relaxing .
