The Delicious Waffles that brightens up your day

Today I am going to describe two absolutely delicious waffles that will light up your day. The creator of these superb sweet dishes is none other than the The Butlers Chocolate Cafe Bangladesh. Without further ado, let’s introduce the first one. The first one is called the “Chocolate & Berry Waffles”. this fantastic dessert is single layered waffles topped with delicious berry compote and served with Butler’s signature chocolate sauce and whipped cream. Have a look at this beauty:

waffleThe blend of chocolate and berry compote blends in mouth and with adding the whipped cream on top, creates a perfect balance. They give also a silky chocolate syrup in a small pitcher if you want to make it extra chocolaty.

The Second one is called “Butlers Signature Waffles”. This Waffle is crispy Belgian style served with Butlers signature chocolate sauce and with Vanilla ice cream. The is much simple looking than the first one but you know the term- “The simpler it is the better it is”. The combination of Butlers signature chocolate and the vanilla ice cream is out of the world.

The Italian Bruschetta

If you have lived long enough in Dhaka City you must have visited Spaghetti Jazz, and if you have not then you should go there at least once to try it out.  Being one of Dhaka’s oldest and a very consistent restaurant, it is a popular spot for families, couples and business dinners. The dish we present to you today is an appetizer and a dish adored by Italians; the Bruschetta

Bruschetta is an antipasto from Italy consisting of grilled bread rubbed with garlic and topped with olive oil and salt. The one that is available here is actually tweaked to our liking and is very delicious. They serve four pieces, which is enough to share between couples and is very light, just perfect as a starter which could also be paired with a soup setting you up for a delicious main.

The Juicy Pepper Steak

Attention all steak lovers! The last time we wrote about steak, it was about the Crème de la crème of steak. This time, we want to share with you a bit on one of Dhaka cities’ most popular sizzling steaks. Look no further, Spaghetti Jazz is here. Being one of Dhaka’s oldest and a very consistent restaurant, it is a popular spot for families, couples and business dinners. The dish we present to you today is one that I always have whenever I go there; The Pepper Steak

The is brought on a sizzling platter, which includes a prime cut of tender beef (local) cooked to your liking, served with mashed potatoes/fries, buttered vegetables and some noodles. If you are person who is particular about the cook then PLEASE NOTE: the steak comes on a sizzler platter which is very hot so it keeps on cooking the steak. I tend to order medium rare and as soon as the dish is brought to me I remove the steak from the sizzler platter and put it down on a plate so it does not cook any further. The steak on the other hand is just delicious in flavour with a beautiful thick pepper sauce poured over it and they serve a pretty decent mash as well. Happy Hunting!

P.S. The lighting at the restaurant is not that great so kindly forgive the picture/video quality. I assure you it looks better up front.

The Colorful Doi-Futchka

Well, who does not like Doi Futchka?? In my opinion, most of us are a big fan of this food. Although its availability is abundant, but they are not very hygienic and well presented in most places. Today I am going to recommend a place for you guys for this all time favorite food of ours. The Doi-Futchka that I am going to recommend not only tastes good, but presentation wise is also top-notch. This place adds color to their Doi-Futchka to make them look more appealing. They serve it in a leaf shaped clay plate and believe me guys, the look of it is mouth watering. The place where you will get this awesome treat is none other than the Premium Sweets of Gulshan 2 circle. Just to let you know, the colorful Futhckas tastes just like normal Futhckas, because there are no added flavor with the color. They just do it for the decoration. So what are waiting for?? Go and taste it today.

The Peri Peri Chicken Livers & Portuguese Roll

Nando’s has always been a favourite for Dhakaites whether it is an outing with friends, family or partner. We love the flame grilled chicken, with the Peri Peri sauce and chips on the side with a chilled drink, but there is more to Nando’s than flame grilled chicken. One of our favourite dishes here is the Peri Peri Chicken Livers served with a soft and hot Portuguese Roll. It can be ordered as per your liking of flavour and trust us this dish is to die for. We have been going to the Nando’s at Gulshan 2 and they always manage to prepare this dish perfectly, with the chicken being moist and spicy, melting in your mouth just with the right amount of heat of chili paired with fresh and warm Portuguese bread roll. Enjoy!

The Caramel Macchiato

Over the last couple of years coffee shops have become the go-to place to spend some quality time with your family, friends or partner. One such place, which is highly popular in Gulshan is Butlers Chocolate Cafe which is an international chain and has lived up to its mark. We shall cover the food in the future however, the post we write about today is for coffee lovers; we bring to you the Caramel Macchiato. Their espresso blend consists of ethically sourced coffee beans from Brazil, Nicaragua, Sumatra and Colombia and they ensure quality and freshness of the beans which can be easily understood by the fragrance. The caramel macchiato is smooth, silky and is an all rounded enjoyable beverage, however, not the best in the city. They have a variety of different coffee drinks that you can explore for example; Espresso Macchiato, Hazelnut Macchiato, Mint Latte, Mocha, White Mocha, Irish Coffee etc.

The Crème De La Crème of Steak

Attention all steak lovers! I have heard numerous complaints of how steak in Dhaka is not up to the mark either by quality of meat or by taste or by the cook. This is true to a certain extent however, do not discount our beloved city as it may surprise you when you least expect. At the heart of the capital is The Westin Dhaka, and on the top floor with stunning views of the Dhaka skyline is Prego– a signature Italian restaurant that is elegant and brings the artistic flavours of Italy, directly to Dhaka. The dish we bring to you is the Da Vinci of steaks; Australian 120 day grain fed Tenderloin of 230gm served with onion rings, mashed potatoes and buttered vegetables. Along with it comes the most delicious choice of sauces; Béarnaise, Dijon Mustard Butter, Mushroom or Peppercorn. If you are person who is particular about the cook and appreciates good quality meat you must try this at least once. The meat is cooked to perfection just the way you like it melting in your mouth with every bite leaving you wanting a little more. Accompanied with the sauce it is a match made in heaven.

The Catch of the Day

If you are up for some sea food in Dhaka and have no idea where to go, then you are exactly in the same position as me. Our beautiful city somehow breeds heaps of restaurants but lacks one serving good quality seafood. However recently, we have had a couple of international chains opening up so we do have some choices at least. The dish we bring to you today is from one of the longstanding restaurants in Dhaka and one that we regularly have been visiting over the years; Saltz. The dish presented above is the Catch of the Day, which is a whole fish (Sea bass, Mackerel, Pom-fret or Red Snapper) cooked in a style of your preference (pan fried, steamed, deep-fried or grilled) with a sauce of your choice. It’s always best to ask the staff which fish is the freshest and go for that one. We prefer to have it grilled with butter-garlic. The fish that you are seeing is a Red Snapper by the way. Considering the fact that Dhaka is not situated next to a sea or ocean Saltz do quite a good job in serving seafood in terms of freshness and flavour. However, their presentation could do with some work. Enjoy!

The Classic Fish n’ Chips

There are not many restaurants in Dhaka solely dedicated for sea food. Moreover, there are only two international sea-food chain. So, if you are craving for a classic Fish n’ Chips with a beautiful dip, you have limited options to try. But, fortunately, both of the two international chains that we have in Dhaka makes absolutely delicious fish n’ chips. Today, I am going to tell about the famous Manhattan Fish Market‘s Fish n’ Chips. For their Fish n’ Chips, they use hand-battered fish fillets (usually Dory, but up gradable to Hake, Cherry Snapper, Ocean Perch, Salmon & Cod) drizzled with delicious Garlic Herb sauce, complemented with chips and a side salad. This is clear under-the-sea favorite for any sea food lover.
