Ramadan season and you are spoilt for choices to have your Dinner. Zomato gifted me a coupon to try this new place in Jumeirah Lake Towers- Highway 311 which is basically a Afro-Indo cuisine restaurant serving salads, Burgers to grill meat. As they say in their words, their menu is special as its full of flavors derived from far east to far west and a lot in between.
What i ordered from the menu:
Char-Grilled Honey Pepper: Chicken wings tossed with honey and pepper flavors. Chicken was not tender and honey was too thick and it didn’t blend well with the flavor of the chicken.
Freeway 311 Gourmet Burger: Gourmet Burger is quite huge and has 3 fillings – vine ripened Roma Tomatoes, melted cheese, frizze &iceberg lettuce, jalapeno slices and grilled turkey bacon. I chose wood smoked grilled chicken breast as protein and Asian Glazed as a Marinade. The burger was delicious with the filling, i didn’t like the bun as it made it difficult for the burger to just melt in my mouth.
All the gourmet burger comes with a choice of potato and a soft drink. Yes you will not find french fries there, as i said they are with a mission to make you eat healthy. You can choose baked potatoes /sweet potatoes (I loved it).
All African Pill Pill: Made from African birds eye chilies – Spicy Hot. Meals come with a side of potatoes/rice, house salad and a soft drink. Chicken breast, and generous quantity of sweet potatoes by side. I loved the flavor of the chicken, tender and not very spicy (don’t compare with Nandos) and perfectly baked salty & spicy sweet potatoes. This one was my favorite among all the dishes. I liked the presentation of the dish with a tiny all African Flag.
Jamaican Jerk: A flavorful and aromatic marinade from the streets of Jamaica and Caribbean islands. You can choose to eat the chicken breast or the leg piece.My husband chose to eat this dish and it was not very spicy, the chicken was tender and it went well with the sauce. Check out the Jamaican Flag here.
Coffee: I couldn’t ignore their coffee menu, being a coffee lover. I ordered a hazelnut coffee. The server (sorry forgot her name) made the perfect flavored coffee for me, which i was quite impressed. I loved the flavor, with the right amount of espresso and milk in the coffee .
Last but not the least i absolutely love their interiors, colorful chairs, with interesting wooden boards hanging on the wall depicting pictures of food ingredients and also Chefs choice Menu.
They do have a beautiful setup for outdoor, to sit and hangout with your favorite meal and a cup of coffee. Ambiance and service did impress me!
