Taste Buds

We had a pretty quiet Christmas, family were back in the Uk this year so we had a BBQ at home, just the three of us.

However for New Years Day I thought it would be nice to have lunch out somewhere instead of slaving in the kitchen making the traditional New Years Day roast.  Since we moved to Al Barsha I had been saying we ought to check out the hotels that are on our doorstep, so I looked up Centro Barsha to see what they had on offer, I was quite pleasantly surprised with their lunch deal so went ahead and booked it.

The Centro Barsha is a small hotel which describes itself and being designed for a new generation of travelling Executives who demand finesse and functionality at reasonable rates.  You can't beat a bit of finesse I have to say. 

The first thing that struck me about the restaurant, C.Taste was how clean and well laid out it was. The staff were all warm and welcoming and made a fuss of Mitten.  There was an excellent selection of salads on the salad bar, the Thai Beef being particularly nice. The selection of main courses was really good though I would say there could have been more choice of vegetables the day we dined.  The lamb tagine was amazing so compliments to The Chef on that one.  I don't think I have been to a Rotana yet that hasn't had a Pasta station, this was no exception, superb fresh pasta with a selection of sauces.  The desserts were the usual array of sweet temptations that you find in the UAE, but I did enjoy the profiteroles immensely.

Lunch set us back 99 dhs a head including soft drinks, if we had wanted the alcohol package that would have been 139 dhs, I don't know anyone who would complain at those prices.  You can find a list of all their theme nights/lunches by clicking on this link.  Will we go back to Centro Barsha? yes too right we will!! going to check out the all you can eat Burger night later this month.
