My trip to Turkey :)

I know i havent posted in a while but it was because i was in Istanbul, Turkey and i was busy packing that i didnt have enought time to post before i went. I had no internet connection while i was there so i didnt get a chance to post there either. However, i did bring my camera along and i thought i would share some pictures.

I'm sure you all know the KDD icecream sandwitch ? Well in Turkey they have it in Kinder flavour!! Delicious!!!

The familiar face of starbucks coffee ;)

We went to a really good restaraunt called happily ever after.

They have a corner with delicious baked goods.
We also had breakfast there:

There is a really good restautant called Mado which we went to a couple times for breakfast.

They also have a baked section with arabic desserts. I highly recommend. Their ice-cream is so good!

And here are some pictures to show the wonderful views of Turkey:

It was my first time in Turkey and i had an amazing time there.

I will have some new posts up soon.
Thank you for reading! :D

Review: Cocoa Room-Futoor

Today I had a late futoor with my cousin at cocoa room. We had soup at home and then decided to finish our meal there.

So this is what we ordered:

Rice Krispies Shrimp

Margarita Flat Bread Pizza

Breaded Chicken with a Side of French Fries (Not sure of the name)

And now for dessert:

Oreo Crusted Chocolate Molten

I have to say that i heard so much good things about their futoor. I had previously tried their breakfast (post) and it was really good! My favourite dish was probably the flat bread pizza. The dough was wonderful and crispy.They have many options like mushroom and chicken that you can also have on the flat bread pizza. The chicken dish was okay, if you are a fan of breaded chicken then you'll like it. and it was HUGE! I wasn't really expecting it to be that big. We shared it and still couldn't finish it all! ;p But i really liked their french fries even though it was a little bit too salty. The garlic mayonnaise that came with the french fries was really good as well. The rice krispies shrimp was good as well and i really liked how crispy it was but i didn't really taste the rice krispies which is okay, i guess. The sauces with the shrimp were good.
The dessert was not what i expected. For some reason we thought it was a custard dessert! ;s
My way to describe it is that its a dark chocolate molten cake with a layer of chocolate and oreo covering it up. Like i said it was not what i expected but it was still good ecspecially with the ice-cream on the side.

If I would have the chance to go again I would like to maybe try the nutella soufle and the red velvet pancakes. I have heard so much good things about them.
And I would also like to quickly thank the staff for the amazing and quick service. I had a lot of fun today! :D

If you have tried anything from the menu leave me in the comments below what you thought about it! :D

Suhoor at Maki

Before starting this post I just wanted to say that you will notice a huge difference in the picture quality because yesterday my mom surprised me with a new camera and it’s the one that I had wanted so thank you mommy! ;* From now on I hope that the picture quality will be much better and more clearer! :D

So anyways yesterday night me and my family went out to have suhoor at maki because we all wanted sushi and so we headed over to maki at Burj Jasem.

So this is what we ordered:

Edamame Salad

Spicy Edamame

Spicy Tuna Sushi & Spicy Salmon Sushi

Salmon Sushi & Shrimp Sushi

Essa III (3) Maki

Chicken Teryaki

Garlic Fried Rice

Beef Tepenyaki

Yaki Udon Noodles with Shrimp

This was the first time that i had tried the Essa III (3) Maki and we had the rocket removed and it was delicious but very different than the other 2 Essa maki's.

The food was excellent as usual but their was a roll that i didn't take a picture of which was the Mango Mame Maki that came late after all the food- im not sure if they had forgotten about it or something but i didnt get a chance to picture it. The service was a little bit slower than usual but it was a great night that i got to spend with my family.
