So the other day, we went downtown to see Down With Webster perform on Crescent street for the closing show of the Grand Prix festivities (they were amazing as usual). We went pretty early and were hungry so we figured we’d go eat somewhere in the area.
We ended up going to Shahrazad resto cafe/ shisha lounge. Let’s break down the whole experience for you…
..we walked in and sat down and waited quite a little while for the waitress to come see us.. must admit, the service is very slow since there is only one waitress for the whole place. She brought us our menus which had an overwhelming amount of options of arab dishes to choose from. Everything sounded so yummy!
I ordered the veggie burger trio since it was the only vegetarian meal on the menu (unless i wanted tabouleh, fattoush or hummus …but i was kind of in the mood for a veg burger). I must say that that veggie burger was hands down the best veggie burger i have ever had. It had an amazing type of smoky flavour to it and it tasted arab …i loved it!
It was served with a serving of crispy french fries and salad with some sort of dressing… i am not sure what kind of dressing it was but it was a pale yellowish-white colour. I’m pretty sure there was mayo and garlic and lemon juice and other stuff of that sort in it… it was really good! ..i feel like someone’s old arab grandma/sito could have made it :P
Then we had our shisha (peace pipe). We ordered mint flavour since we wanted to try something new. We smoked a bit of it before our meal and continued after we were done eating. The mint was quite refreshing. You could feel the chill in your throat after exhaling.
We haven’t got any pictures since we had no intention of going out to eat and it was all so random and spontaneous but I urge you to go check it out if you are looking for a shisha lounge where you can get good food. :)
