The first time I have been to Central Market, I had just passed by this cafe and was attracted by the shabby chic decor and intigued by the smells that wafted to my nostrils as I passed by and vowed to try it the next time.
So when my friends called for some catching up, I ,without hesitation suggested the place. We all loved the old world 'victorian' decor. I particularly loved the distressed tables and mismatched chairs and sofa. The place was very cozy and inviting and I hope the food would be as good... and It was!
The complimentary bread and garlic herbed butter was so good, I would have gladly paid for it. The bread smelled so good and the butter have just the right amount of garlicky goodness.
My friends had three different kinds of pasta. The spaghetti Bolognese, Lazagna and Fetuccine. All had just the right amount of tomato tanginess and alfredo sauce creaminess. It wasn't heavily seasoned to the point that you loose your appetite or interest after a few bites. I had the Chicken and tiger prawn which I finished all by myself while my friends shared their pasta with each other. The servings are generous enough for two if you aren't that heavy an eater.
For dessert we had the chocolate and vanilla ice cream and the strawberry and vanilla variation. Being a chocolate girl I devoured the chocolate ice cream which had that bitter sweet chocolatey taste I love.
The bill came to a total of AED 360 for 6 persons which I think is a good enough deal. And Oh, the staff were accomodating enough to let us ran around taking a lot of pictures!
