Lunch Date at Tony Roma's

Posted by Kero at Sunday, February 28, 2010
The dusty weekend restricted our activities to play area visits, eating out, car wash, and a lil' shopping (I finally succumbed to the Dubai Shopping Festival waaaah. fortunately, DSF ends today ;D). Friday, while Andreas took his two-hour nap, we headed to Tony Roma's for lunch and newspaper reading.

The restaurant is located at the Skywalk of Dubai Festival Centre. With the such location, one would expect an excellent view and indeed it is. Tony Roma's restaurant is divided in two: the other half for comfy indoor and half of it offers al fresco dining over looking the Festival Promenade. But because the city wind and dust is at it again, everybody, except for those occasional smokers opted to stay indoor.

We arrived for late lunch and no sooner than we were seated, the place was packed with families, sweethearts, and group of friends.

After giving our orders, we were served complimentary warm sesame bread and garlic butter with  fresh parsley. We scooped it all as soon as it landed our table. Hubby liked the unusual presentation.

Hubby ordered their famous offering -- half-slab of slow smoked beef ribs. His side dish includes mashed potato with onion springs and bacon, and coleslaw.

I don't make salad and I never attempted to toss anything with dressing. My two boys happily munch on  cucumber and carrot slices so I ordered Tony's Asian salad (fresh chopped Asian greens, tossed with Pan Asian dressing, diced red peppers, and cilantro) with grilled hamour. The menu also said it has sesame seeds and fried wonton noodles but i didn't see any on my plate. Maybe the sesame seeds went all to the complimentary bread. But will happily let go of the noodles so i don't mind not being served with it. Verdict, i like salad so long as i am not the one who prepared. The hamour with its sweet and spicy sauce was juicy inside and the grilled side was crunchy. Definitely worth coming back.

We rarely order drinks when eating out. If we must we happily settle for water but seeing the amount of beef we need to consume, hubby opted for bottom less soda and i thought the Pina Colada looked realy inviting so I ordered a tall glass.
