For us- Steak Lovers

For the record, Steak, medium or well done is my comfort food ever, this is my simple pleasure. Whenever I’m out to reward myself, Steak is always my first option.

And since this is my best food, here are the types of steak cut;

  1. Tenderloin- I believe that this is the most expensive cut of steak. This is usually taken under the ribs. The meat is lean and usually cut in thick slices.
  2. Sirloin- Boneless.  Behind the ribs and comes with a little fat throughout the meat.
  3. T-Bone-  Bone-in. Just as its name, it comes in t-shape bone with meat on both sides with fat on the sides of the meat.
  4. Rib Eye- Boneless or bone-in. Lots of fat throughout the meat.

Since I’m a certified steak lover, I happened to track down almost all the Steaks-houses within the area, and some were not even in the picture as I wasn’t able to take photo of the hundred steaks I’ve eaten, haha! If you are looking for the best steak in BH, here are some places where you can find the best steak ever.

The best I’ve been- Bennigans,  Juffair, Bahrain. I’ve tried almost all of their steaks.

Where to eat in Bahrain- BRAZIL GRILL AND LOUNGE

During one of my Birthday Celebration spent with Nicole, we went to one of the coolest bars I’ve ever been, Brazil Lounge, which is familiar with all you can eat and drink dining. Salad, barbecue grills, seafood grills, chicken grills, sweets all in one.

It isn’t my first time in the restaurant as we used to go here with my friends for about twice or thrice already, but it is my first time on the bar upstairs.

image

Cozy dim-lit bar. I liked the traces of orange in a slightly-lit bar.

image

We had a pitcher of frozen lemon and strawberry margarita and wine.

image

Plus they gave us this free 2 shots of Brain damaged.

image

With this exquisite mouth-watering scrumptious meal, ( well, that ’s how I want to describe it aside some are a little bit too salty for me), but isn’t that bad after all.

image

I would still recommend this cozy restaurant that offers a variety of grills. The price is way much affordable with BHD12 something on Tuesday nights.

RESTAURANT: SHABU SHABU

Restaurants in Bahrain

This doesn’t seem very extraordinary or very unusual place, but I find it quite satisfying to try some Japanese Resto for some time.

To have shabu-shabu!

Shabu shabu is a Japanese hotpot dish of thin-sliced meat and vegetables in boiled broth.

Boiled in the metal pot at the center of the dining table, while the pot is simmering, the ingredients are placed in the pot and is cooked at the table.

image

And since I haven’t tried this for a very long time, having this once again after so long is kinda exquisite and distinctive to my taste bud.

image

Plus, finally, I found the best ever siomai ever steamed in BH. =)

image

… who can ever say no to this tempting, delightful mouthwatering mint ice cream for dessert?

I don’t usually choose Japanese food (especially this very light one) to any get together with friends and I don’t prefer to eat buffet as well since I eat very little, but this is the kind of food that you will enjoy until the last drop of soup, so I would highly recommend trying at least once every while, plus very affordable for BD10.5.

You will definitely love it!

BAMBU

Restaurants in Bahrain

After almost three months, I and my friends decide to meet out for dinner.

It has been a while since the last time we had a get together in a Korean Restaurant, Da Rae Jung, where food is quite expensive I would say but not that exquisite, well from my taste of food.–> Actually, it’s not that bad haha! But the fact that I do not like much of Korean food says it all.

Again, it’s a Monday Club on a Tuesday night dinner! 

After suggesting a lot of options from different fine-dine restaurants, we finally decided to try BAMBU!

It ’s a variety of Chinese, Thai, Vietnam cuisine. If you are craving for Chinese food, definitely I would suggest the superb food of BAMBU.

image

From Salt and Pepper prawns to mussels, to prawn toast and chicken rolls, and a variety of others, Beef, and chicken. 

The price is about BD12.500 per head but alcohol is not included if you want to go for with unlimited alcohol, the price would be BD16.

image

Mussels and Tempura.

image

With free Jasmine-tea after the meal.

Dinner starts from 7PM to 11Pm daily.

BAHAY KUBO

Restaurants in Bahrain

I LOVE HOME FOOD BUT I PREFER TO EAT OUT– one of my quotations.

Since I hardly cook at all, I always have the time to track down all the nice Restaurants around the area.

 As I do not eat much during weekdays but on Weekends, I always treat myself to something extraordinary, this is what we call, the cheat night.

This weekend, I craved for something traditional.

We went to this Filipino Restaurant that is owned by a good friend of mine. This is something just like a home-food in a restaurant.

The taste of Filipino food.

BAHAY KUBO.

image

Their specialty is Crispy Pata ( pork leg) but I ordered something different.

image

This mouth-watering ” Kare- Kare” ( this is a traditional Filipino recipe made of Oxtail, beef tripe and vegetables cooked in thickened peanut butter), is also one of my favorite in this restaurant. They served it hot in a pot.

image

And of course the all time-Filipino favorite, “Sinigang na baboy”, ( Pork stew in Tamarind Broth). This tamarind sour soup is better off to eat with rice.

image

For starter/appetizer, “Calamari”. This is a  batter coated squid- deep fried squid rings.

image

…and a lemonade and sago and gulaman for refreshment.

..and it’s kinda affordable to have spent around BHD11 ( around One thousand three hundred in peso conversion) for two people.

image

Me and my friend Nicole.

If you want to feel at home away from our home and craving for something homely, I’m highly recommending BAHAY KUBO FILIPINO RESTAURANT, one of the best, tidiest not to mention that top of the line quality service.

Where to eat in Bahrain- Le Meridien

Restaurants in Bahrain

Le Meridien Hotel is a 5 Star Hotel directly attached to City Center, BH Largest Mall. With that, they have one of the Best Restaurant named Baharat that offers a variety of cuisine, International, Mediterranean, Sushi, European, and Asian among others and have the chance to experience the Live cooking stations.

Ik, the price is a little bit costly, BHD28++ inclusive,(something like PHP4k per person) free flow of alcoholic beverage and BHD19++ inclusive, free flow of non-alcoholic beverage, but then, the quality of food, the ambiance, and the service is excellent, plus of course, what do you expect for a five-star hotel?

It’s like we were planning to set dinner with my old friends (used to be Monday Group), for a very long time but as always, we couldn’t find the best time when everyone is free as one would always be out of the Country. Until finally, we all decided to get together this Wkend (though some are still out of the Country) and pick Le Meridian Hotel in Seef area.

TBh, I’m not fond of Sashimi and sushi, haha, strange but true, I think I’m one of the few who doesn’t eat much of this food, but since there are a lot of choices and it was a Seafood Buffet that night, with a variety of starters and appetizers, so I agreed.

The food was exceptional, the seafood options were all so delicious and in good sized portions and different cooking. The choice of salads, cheeses, bread, sides, and desserts are exquisite. It is seafood night, but there are also choices for vegan, Asian, Indian and others. Free flow of unlimited drinks, I think I had a glass of pina colada, and a few glasses more of Mojito.

Not to mention that the staff was also so friendly, helpful and courteous and The band is great musicians, the whole experience with friends are a truly remarkable one.

So I had Oysters and Lobsters and Prawns to name a few.

To end with, I had fun with old friends. That (almost) once a year get together was a night full of catching up from the long lost time since everyone is now busy with own family life. I remember how we used to drink and rock the different bars and hotels until the wee hours of the morning, about 8 years ago and how life would eventually change when you started to focus on the real life.

Good food, good friends, a night of catching up, perfect restaurant!
