Why I <3 Baking Tray

Baking Tray is becoming one of my favorite “hangout” places in town. In this post, I am giving you the reason why I fell in love with this place so fast!

To begin with, I love the location. Its close to where I work, and it has both; indoor and outdoor seating areas.

The outdoor area is so cozy and nice….

And I dont mind the indoor one with its baking trays ceiling and their beautiful whiskers’ chandelier

And their blackboard wall menu with all those colorful items… YUMMMM

There are days that I would just go there to have their famous Chai & Haleeb

Well to be honest, its just tea and milk, but the whole experience (service, presentation, spices used) make up for it and make it so worth it and you really wanna go back for it

Other than that, I am on a mission to try as many items on their menu as much as I can… Well, I kinda did that with their sandwiches’ selection! I tried all, but not the Rustic Vegetables, but my sister did and I have pictures of all of them for you to see with a mini caption in each ๐Ÿ˜‰ So lets begin… shall we?

Chicken Semolina: Mustard marinated chicken on a basilโ€“mayo spread finished with oven dried tomatoes

Turkey on a Sunflower: Hickory Smoked Turkey breast with Gruyere cheese, caramelized grapes, and sprouts finished with a balsamic reduction

The Roast: Homemade roasted beef with Emmenthal cheese and organic horseradish mayo

Philly Steak: Prime beef, onions, mushrooms, and cheddar in a ciabatta

Norway Salmon: Prime Norwegian Smoked Salmon, crunchy snow peas, with a spread of onion cream cheese

Garlic Chicken Avocado: Grilled chicken breast and avocado finished with roasted garlic flavored labneh

Halloumi on Ciabatta: Herb marinated Halloumi cheese with mango-cucumber conserve presented on a grilled turmeric ciabatta

Spicy Apricot Turkey: Smoked turkey and Mozzarella on a spicy apricot chutney

The EBT: Fried eggs, Bacon, tomatoes (roasted)

Rustic Vegetable Focaccia: Oven roasted seasonal vegetables with sun dried tomato pesto sprinkled with goat cheese

Wild Mushroom: Wild forest mushrooms presented on white farmer bread with grilled Feta cheese enhanced with a chilli mayo

Now which one is my favorite? Well… I ordered the Garlic Chicken Avocado and Turkey on a Sunflower three times each… So its a tie between the two. I also loved their Roast and Norway Salmon! And to be quite honest, their fresh and interesting ingredients tickle my taste buds in so many different ways! I get the “surprise with every bite” kinda feeling every time I order something from them!

If I had to pick, I would say I love their EBT, Garlic Chicken Avocado, and The Roast the most!

Aside of their sandwiches, they sell their own homemade jams and pickles

Knowing me, I am not a BIG fan of pickles, but I always ask for extra pickles when dining there!

And those two dishes in the back are from their pizza selection;

Dijon Chicken with roasted onions, capers, zucchini and Mozzarella cheese

And Tomo pizza: Herb infused tomato and mozzarella cheese

I am telling you! I am on a mission to finish up that menu on the wall… I tried few of their side dishes such as the mozzarella triangles, oven roasted potatoes, oven roasted tomatoes, andย sautรฉedย mushrooms

Fresh mozzarella covered in bread crumbs, served with homemade tomato sauce

Freshly baked potato wedges

Roasted tomatoes

Mushroom in a light creamy sauce

I also tried few items from their breakfast menu…

Thats Eggs Over Easy.. Basically its brown toasted break with a spread of labneh and two eggs over easy topped with bacon! YUMMMM

And thats Turkey and Cheese – oven baked (forgot its name)

from their sweet side, I tried their Date Cake… which is the only item I did not like much… aside from everything I tried.

Well… It wasnt as good as their cookies!! My oh my! Their cookies’ selection. I liked the chocolate chip and dates with harda (tahini) ones the most! I even got some for my friend one day, who fell in love with them instantly and that inspired me to an idea of asking the people at Baking Tray to make one BIG chocolate chip cookie specially made for her! AND THEY DID!

They called the chef from the kitchen and the manager who both worked on creating this gigantic cookie for me ๐Ÿ™‚ Another reason why I really LOVE the Baking Tray!

  1. Wow everything looks amazing I have to admit.

    The date cake doesn’t look fresh and looks a bit stale so maybe that’s why it didn’t taste so good.

    Do they deliver?

  2. Wow the place looks amaaazing and the food looks so yummy. I loved the interiors too.
    I should definitely go there

    Thanks for the post

  5. This guy has put his entire self into his restaurant, from the decor to most important, the food. Every time I go there I am the only one. I hope it catches on and his patrons can recognize the quality of this restaurant. I wish him all the success. It is a truly deserving restaurant.

    • His efforts are really showing and the food is beyond yummy! I always see people there, and I think they have generated great base for delivery!

  6. Think will give it another shot, esp., since they have places outside.

    What is your secret for not gaining weight with all the food you eat?

    • So you’ve been there already and didnt like it much? Thats why you will give it another shot??

      Hahaha! I dont eat a lot, I just eat healthier meals and in smaller proportions. Plus I mainly eat sandwiches there ๐Ÿ˜‰
