CIOCONAT LOUNGE


Hi guys! It's been sometime since I've done a review and I was so glad when Cioconat lounge invited me over for lunch today. I've heard of the place before but I've never actually tried it out.


Saudi champagne - We were welcomed with two Saudi champagnes, filled with orange cubes, diced apples and sliced strawberries for that fruity goodness with a dash of mint leaves. This is a very refreshing and fun drink to have when picking out the fruits while sipping on your drink.


Chicken shawarma - As we entered I was informed that I would be the second person to try out the new chicken shawarma at Cioconat lounge. I was a little devastated as I would have to pick out the chicken pieces from the shawarma because I don't eat meat. How can I even blog about food when I don't eat meat? that's why I needed to taste it somehow to tell you guys how GOOD the shawarma is! I informed the staff that it would be very hard to please me with Shawarma because my second home is Abu Dhabi and they are the masters of all kinds of shawarma. It was a challenge he gladly accepted because I'm sure he knew how good it was. The first bite of the shawamra took me back to the first one I had when I was very small. I remembered the flavors and the taste and it put a huge smile on my face! Filled with chicken and French fries the shawarma is so creamy and filling. I was telling my friend the entire time how similar it was to the ones in Abu Dhabi and how much it made me miss home. A few minutes later I was introduced to the chef and funnily he happened to work in Abu Dhabi prior to Cioconat lounge! I knew a shawarma couldn't be that good unless it was created by a master himself. This dish is a definite must try if you love middle eastern food.


French fries - Because I mentioned that I don't eat meat I was offered a side of French fries. It comes with different sauce toppings and dips. You can chose which ever you're in the mood for. The two of us shared this and still remained a few, it's quite a generous portion!


Nutella cheesecake - Oh my lord! Let me tell you how AMAZING this no bake cheesecake is! I'm not a fan of cheesecake, in fact I never order cheesecake when I go out. One portion is enough for two as the slice is quite big itself. This is one of those dishes you need to try out to know how good it is cause I honestly don't have the right words to describe it. The biscuit wasn't too thick or hard and the chocolate sauce went well with the cheesecake 11/10!


Make sure you guys definitely visit Cioconat lounge to try out their newly launched shawarma and cheesecake! Can't go wrong with either of them. Hope you guys have an amazing week ahead, stay tuned to my Instagram and youtube channel on the top right corner for my new video :)


Love,
