We were in the neighborhood of Barsha visiting a friend and on our way back, decided to stopover for a quick lunch. While scouting for a place to eat, we came across Al Ibdaa Cafe on Hessa Street in Al Barsha 3.
Al Ibdaa is a newly opened cafe and it offers Arabic and Italian cuisine. They’ve a breakfast menu as well as an all-day-dining menu. Their deli counter and bakery offers a variety of cakes, pastries and baked goodies.
The modern interiors of the cafe looks chic and charming. It has a vibe of an urban bistro. This cute little cosy venue also has a small al fresco dining area.
We started off with fresh Orange Juice, their menu offers juices, mocktails and milkshakes along with coffee and tea.
As our appetizer we ordered their super refreshing Quinoa Salad. It was not only healthy, nutritious and nourishing, it was tasty too.
Next we had the Vegetable Pizza which was fresh off the oven and tasted absolutely delightful. We liked the fact that it was not too heavy.
We also ordered Arrabiata Pasta which we didn’t like as it was way too spicy.
As we were already full, we didn’t want to have cake or milk cake for dessert. So we ordered their gorgeous-looking Rose Croissant. It was delicious but a bit dry.
We ended our lunch with their speciality coffee- Piccolo and Cortado. Their freshly brewed coffee was amazing.
Overall, we had a good experience.
