Hello guys,
sorry for the delay in posting...and sorry IBkiss for not mentioning your chosen venue until now..but as you know I have been travelling...
IBkiss chose the "Mini Chinese" in Satwa for last Saturdays get together...
we had a few last minute cancellations so only four of us sat down together,
seated at the table,
Sherry,
IBkiss,
Markfromuk,
and your's truely....

The Mini Chinese is...
in Satwa,
easy to find,
yellow, :eek:

:) really it was not too bad...
I had Tom yum, and a sort of pad thai, which was really yummy, despite the presence of tinned mushrooms :eek: yep they were really tinned..
considering it was Sherry's second restaurant in four hours, I do not remember too much left of a sizzler on her plate..mark did a good job on his sizzler too, and IBkiss introduced me to American chow mein for the first time..which was surprisingly good ..
so the food was decent in my opinion, portions were large, and good value for money...
atmosphere was a little lacking though...service with a smile it was not either...and decor was chosen with .."easy to clean" as a priority I imagine..
all in all it was just average...
we did a little vote afterwards and it scored 6.5 out of 10, so perhaps we are spoiled with what's on offer in Dubai because thats not a bad score....
anyway good job IBkiss, it did what it said on the package...

Oregano's media city was suggested as the next venue...and it was also suggested that we go back to lunch-time on Friday as it seems to suit people better...the numbers at the table on Saturday would support this..:rolleyes:
Maybe we can get a few of the regulars back...??? :)
So Friday May 4th 1.30pm...:clap2:
Table for ten perhaps :hungry:...never too early to confirm, but last minute cancellations are a real bore...;)

would suggest that there are a lot better options then Oreganos. Its not bad but not worth a trip. Try Smiling BKK on al Wasl. You will feel like you have had alcohol just sitting in there!

I also tried Appa Kadai in the Marina today. Absolutly proper and felt like I was in a cafe in Malaysia! Meal serves on a banana leaf. I'll try to post a photo.... Only 14 AED and very tasty!

Thanks BJ....'choice was made a couple of weeks ago by Sherry....I have been a few times in Jebel ali and it was pretty good...very good I would say to be honest..we will keep your suggestion in mind...
come on guys...:clap2:
do I really have to go through this every two weeks...?..:)
After the turn-out in Satwa the rules have changed...:mad:

If I don't get four confirmed attendees for Friday by 12 midnight tonight.....I'm calling it off....:p
And you will have nowhere to go for your Brunch...:D
You have been warned...:boxing:
Last call...no alcohol....:love:
