Over a month back, and exactly a couple of days after Eid AlAdha, we went to The Living Room Lounge for brunch.
We were six persons; my mom, sisters, cousin, his mom, and I 😉 We all ordered the same drink, so it was served in a pitcher (I can’t remember the name of our drink, but it was the one with ginger)
We placed our orders; three Arabian Breakfasts and Three Scrambled Eggs, their famous scrambled eggs Danderma wrote about a while back… but I never got the chance to try/review it till now 😉 So just like Danderma, I usually go there for coffee/mocktails, enjoy the weather… be it day or night, the view is always fabulous, specially when you get to sit out (I actually never sat inside) in their bunglow-like atmosphere! You’re lucky if you get a good table out during the day light (shaded area) and enjoy the sea breeze (by the way, Ansam is Arabic for breeze :-P) Also at night with the lights all over! Its just a lovely atmosphere.
The Arabic Breakfast (labneh was replaced with Halloum)
And the infamous yummy scrambled eggs
The food was great and everything was well put together, the place itself, the atmosphere, the company and the food… everyone was full and satisfied at the end, the Arabic breakfast fava (broad) beans was really good. The scrambled egg was just amazing (keeping in mind that I like my eggs poached or sunny side up). It came in with potato slices topped with cherry tomatoes… and you know how I always say the atmosphere and food presentation makes up for half (if not more) the experience? The presentation there was a total eye-candy!
