Last month Raju Omlet the popular Indian street food eatery specializing in dishes made with eggs opened a second branch in Sheikh Zayed road. Their first branch is located in Karama.
I was one of the lucky few to be invited for the pre opening of the second branch. The new branch is located off Sheikh Zayed road, next to Al Manara exit. It is a bit tricky to get there so it’s better to rely on GPS.
What can we expect from the new Raju Omlet?
That was the topmost question on my mind when I reached the new branch. The new branch is bigger, better and funkier than their Karama branch. Then again, I love their Karama branch too, my only grouse is that it is small and gets crowded on the weekends. So glad that they opened a bigger branch now.
I am totally in love with the ambience of the new Raju Omlet. The restaurant is spacious with funky and quirky decor. This is one place with a great sense of humor. Their humorous and comic posters will bring a smile on everyone’s lips.
The place transported me back to Mumbai. The atmosphere is lively and energetic. Raju Omlet’s interiors are done creatively- from wall art to furniture and lightning. This is one place I don’t mind sitting for hours together and soaking up the ambience.
You can expect the same warm and welcoming hospitality as in the Karama branch.
My dining partner this time was my friend Anita. The first thing we ordered was their tea. I am a big fan of their tea. Anita ordered a Cutting Chai and I ordered an Adrak Chai.
It was a first visit for Anita and she told me the Cutting Chai reminded her of the tea they make in her hometown Mumbai. She loved it. As for the Adrak Chai. It was perfectly brewed with a hint of ginger. The tea was so good that we had to order for the second cup.
Their beverage menu consists of a good variety of tea. Apart from tea, they also serve coffee, fresh juices, jeera Chaas and soft drinks.
Raju Omlet specializes in egg dishes, they offer most of the popular and traditional Indian egg dishes. The variety is mind boggling. They have a wide range of omelettes,egg gravies and curries,boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, rolls, egg rice and so on.
We ordered the Bhurji, Cheese Masala Omlet and Mumbai Omlet.
Bhurji made with eggs is one of my favorite egg dishes. It is one of the quick and easy Indian dishes made from scrambled eggs with crushed onions, chopped tomatoes,green chillies, garlic, ginger and spices. We had the Bhurji with Paratha. Raju Omlet makes excellent Bhurji, no wonder I keep going back for more.
Cheese Masala Omlet was the next dish we had. It was a regular Indian style omelette made with chopped onions, green chillies, ginger,garlic and masala(spices). The masala omelette was rolled and filled with cheddar cheese. It was served with toasted Pav(Indian bread). Cheese Masala Omlet was delicious.
Mumbai Omlet is Raju Omlet’s version of Omelette sandwich spiced up with the famous Mumbai Vada Pav chutney that has a punch of garlic, coconut and red chilli powder. Oh boy, it was one hell of a sandwich. It was spicy and tasty. I can make a trip to Raju Omlet just to have this super delicious sandwich.
One suggestion to Raju Omlet- please introduce a dessert. That’s the only thing missing in the menu.
We had a great eggilicious experience. Loved the food and tea. The service is good, pricing is pocket friendly. The ambience is super cool.
Raju Omlet is eggspectionally good, need to come back again whenever eggy cravings strikes me.
