Oh, its summer and taking your grill set to the parks and beaches are out of bounds. So what do we do with the grill cravings that we are having right now? We recommend you check out this quaint and quirky restaurant going by the name The Meating Room in the scuttling neighborhood of Karama. While the name might suggest that you are in for a somber setting, we shall tell you that this restaurant is packed with chirping customers making it a busy diner!
Open in 2017, this concept restaurant offers the perfect Indian dishes fused with some of the tastiest flavors from across the globe. They serve tastiest of homegrown tangs perfectly amalgamated into your meat. You will be surprised to see how flavorful and fancy some of the choicest street foods served here are.
Take a sitting outside as you look down the hustling of Karama and Al Wasl in full swing or reserve a table indoors. The indoors are a cozier setting with a relatively small dining area while the indoors are a lot more spacious for larger groups! But we love the woody taste that the restaurant offers with its ambiance. Be it the wooden platters carrying our food or the rustic timber finish of the restaurant- it’s the perfect old school and upscale feel one could ask for.
On The Menu
Order a street style bhutta bringing back the memories of rainy outings in your hometown. But there’s a twist! Your favorite Bhutta priced at AED 23 has got a Mexican touch to it as its perfectly coated with lime and chili. It adds the much-needed spice to the sweet of the corn.
