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.

Honey Glazed Scallops

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.

Thai Salmon Steak in Panang Curry Sauce

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.

Lamb Shank

@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!
