I finally got to meet the newly married couple (It’s been a year almost) @dheerajnair89 and foodie wife @onehungrymallu and what better way to celebrate than to visit a place you had only heard of but never been to. The “Blue Strawberry Restaurant” in Rezayat Village was a place my ex-boss frequented and which I’ve heard serve up some amazing food on Christmas Day.
The restaurant was recently renovated but it still felt a little dull but that’s not why we were there. A quick glance at the menu and we ordered the “Honey Glazed Scallops” (SR. 50). The pan seared scallops were tender and moist but could have better with a bit more sear. The lobster flavoured Roast Beetroot Quinoa base was quite bland and did not do justice to the scallops accompanying it.
For the main course, I ordered the “Thai Salmon Steak in Panang Curry Sauce” which had a hint of Lemongrass and came with a small portion of coconut rice. The Salmon was cooked well and encrusted with coconut that held the fish in place. The curry was slightly sour but made a good accompaniment. The vegetables made no real difference and would have been great with a bit more rice.
@dheerajnair89 went for the “Lamb Shank” (SR. 65) and @onehungrymallu ordered the “Baby Rack of Lamb” (SR. 70). I will let them post their reviews so check them out. The “Crème Brule” we ordered was just ok.
Overall a good experience with a very friendly staff member taking care of our needs. I would like to try their Christmas Menu out next time!
