We’ve got a new food street in Dubai, except now it’s a boulevard by the Burj Khalifa and The Dubai Mall. Posh overload!
If you’ve ever been in a situation where you’ve dined out at a restaurant and the menu is SO massive that you’re confused as soon as you flip through page numero uno and you eventually order a pizza because it’s an easy way out? Yes, I’m indicating to you The Cheesecake Factory!
Fret not, for Kris Kros Restaurant & Lounge has come up with a clever solution to the menu dilemma. What have they done you ask? Well, they’ve color coded their cuisine options from the Mediterranean, American and Asian regions in a neat layout, and they’ve even indicated the vegetarian dishes. Ordering has never been this easy!
Entering Kris Kros, the ambiance is set by the bold color tone from what I’d like to think was suggested by the Teletubbies and on a plus side, a smoking and non-smoking sections is an option. Yayers! On a down bit, not once did I hear the song Jump by Kris Kross on the playlist. I mean come ‘on, golden opportunity innit?!
I flipped through the menu with ease and ordered a Dynamite Shrimp with its light coating and sizable portions which was gobbled in mere minutes. The salad, albeit with a sour dressing was the highlight with its halloumi & eggplant “spring roll”. My craving for pizza was satisfied as soon as my eyes caught sight to the Indian-ized Pizza with mango chutney and tandoori chicken pieces which were succulent as it should be with the tangy chutney providing the sauce aspect for the thin crust pizza. The meal was supplemented with mocktails of giant proportions with mighty taste while the date tart provided a sweet ending to the experience at Kris Kros.
