We had lunch at this pub last Friday as it’s the only place serving food at 3pm in Crowne Plaza Hotel. Well it lived up to my expectation about their food – not good, but if you’re just after carb-filling to sustain you for the day then this place will do.
For appetizer, we ordered loaded potato skin which was aMMMMMMMMazing! This was actually the only dish that me and the boyfriend truly enjoyed. It was so good that we’ve raised our expectations for the main course a notch but turned out that this was the only food that they can do right – well at least among the three food we ordered.
For main course:
It’s actually a pork sausage which tastes nothing. Seriously, it’s just meat with no flavor whatsoever. I tried putting salt, pepper and some steak sauce to put taste in it but it was just bland really. Well, it did fill me up until 9pm that night but not satisfied though.
Well the good news is, the burger tasted like a burger – but a little too dry. The pork bacon though tastes like paper, not to mention that you would need herculian efforts to cut it into pieces. There was no pork-ish flavor in it, well it actually doesn’t taste anything. I wonder how they managed to do it in all their main course dish. Well at least there’s consistency right?
I’ll probably not go back for a meal here but will definitely go back for some drinks and order their loaded potato skin. YUM!
Our total bill for the lunch:
3 pints of heineken (AED105)
1 loaded potato skin (AED30)
1 bangers and mash (AED46)
1 prime beef burger (AED50)
It would’ve been AED231 total but because I used my Entertainer voucher, the total bill went down to AED185.
