My idea of a proper biryani. This is part of my follow up “quest” to see if the recent mission by two Emirati gentlemen, to find the best #biryani in Dubai & Sharjah and their ranking for the same matches with my gastronomical findings. Also this is an excuse to go out and eat more ? Jafferbhai’s claims to be the "Biryani King from Bombay". I think his claims are not amiss. Everything you eat at this Mughlai restaurant oozes with flavour and good quality. If you want to taste really good North Indian food then head here and get ready for your taste buds to thank you ☺️. We had the Murg Pahadi Kebab (succulent chicken pieces BBQ with a mint marinade), Lucknowi Gosht Nihari (slow cooked lamb cooked with marrow and only served on Saturday evenings) and the star dish – mutton biryani. We overdid it by getting firni (rice pudding) and rabdi (condensed milk goodness) which were really good as well. ? Jaffer Bhai's in Karama (same line as the post office just before Home Centre) What I liked ? ?? The mutton biryani ?? Anything I tried off their menu What I didn't like ? ?? Nothing to report here Taste ????? Service ??? Value ????? Overall ????? . . . . . . . #Dubai #myDubai #DubaiFood #DubaiFoodie #yummy #foodies #foodlover #foodbeast #foodpics #tasteDubai #DubaiFoodPics #foodstagram #zomatoUAE #nomnomnom #silverspoon #sharjah #biryani #biryanikingofmumbai @jafferbhaisdelhidarbar ?
