The new Vegetarian menu at Friday’s is yum. As soon as I entered the venue, located at The Jumeirah Beach Road, I was looked upon as, ‘who is this ghastly overdressed belle?’ I mean I was way overdressed for a casual dining space like Friday’s. But really, are ladies ever over dressed?
My friend was kind enough to keep telling me that I need to relax, and that it was ok to be overdressed, rather than under dressed, which is what I usually am.
The aroma of the American-Mexican fast food, as soon as we took our seats, threw the ‘sartorial choices’ convo away.
We immediately grabbed the all-new vegetarian menu and got ordering, with the help of the Manager on duty.
So, I can eat the Jalapeño Cheese Spring Roll for breakfast, lunch and dinner. umm…ha!
I loved it THAT much! And, with the honey mustard sauce, oh dear! The said dish is one of the new additions to the all-new vegetarian menu at Friday’s.
We then ordered some Veg Nachos.
Now, this is green-goodness on some chips. Can it get more sensible than that? You got your junk taste buds sorted and the greens go in the gut too. Yeah! that was over in about 10 minutes. It’s a light snack, really.
We also got a little carried away and ordered some non-veg items. We got the Buffalo Winged Sauce Shrimp, a Chicken Caesar Salad and my friend ordered a trio platter of meat.
For the mains, we ordered the Blackened Cottage Cheese, Spinach Alfredo Pasta. Trust us, the cottage cheese looks…just like chicken!
This dish was okay, it didn’t manage to beat my jalapeno and the veggie nacho starters.
Oh then the Veg Chimichanga. That was also delish. It came with a side of Mexican rise (my fav) and galucamole. This one’s good for two, I’d say. Well, depends how hungry you are though.
So much food and two cocktails later, we were still up for dessert. Oh c’mon, how can we say no to the brownie ice cream?
Friday’s is located at the Dubai Mall, Mall of the Emirates, Dubai Festival City, Jumeirah Beach Road and Mirdiff City Center.
