Are food deliveries worth it?

YES, when we’re talking about Sofitel Bahrain’s remarkable restaurants; Fiamma, Rivaaj, Pashawat, and Tapas! FACT’s Elanur Sengel makes a phone call…

Naturally, being food lovers, we’re not letting the current lockdown stop us from relishing delicious food. And Sofitel Bahrain is our partner in crime. As our order arrives, the smell of seriously good food fills the room together with our ever-growing excitement. We unpack the food containers and serve our dining table with wholesome favourites such as Lebanese vine leaves, Moutabel, Lamb Ouzi, and more — and the delicious experience begins.

We start with our favourite Arabic mezze — Tabbouleh; the most perfect mezze of parsley, garnish with tomato, onion, burgle, lemon, and olive oil. The appetizing Capricciosa salad that comes with fresh mixed leaves, Artichoke, Kernel corn, and cherry tomatoes also just hits the palate right, but the highlight is the one and only Lamb tagine. Simmered in numerous spices, the braised lamb shank is not only melt-in-your-mouth tender but super flavoursome. The next dish to be enjoyed is the Dal Makhani.

Black lentils cooked overnight in the clay oven finished with butter and cream. Taste and texture here are doubtless enough to repeat the order! And although we are in love with all these Arabic delicacies, we can’t resist the Quattro Formaggi Pizza. Chewy and crisp, with a marriage of all our favourite cheeses; Mozzarella, Gorgonzola, Parmesan, and fresh creamy Taleggio. The Tonnaro Pizza comes with juicy Mozzarella, tomato, onion, tuna, and black olives — and makes the Quattro Formaggi Pizza serious competition, but what to do?

Another Italian focal point is the Lasagna Bolognese. Oven baked, with meaty Bolognese Sauce, creamy Béchamel Sauce and grated Parmesan Cheese; this doesn’t look like a quick and easy lasagna. This is a slow cooked and divine lasagna.

The succulent Lebanese vine leaves bring us back to the Arabic dishes and we savour them together with Arabic homemade bread topped with Za’atar and cheese. The Hammour Syadiyah; cumin and coriander marinated Hammour fillet served with perfectly cooked Arabic rice also hits our taste buds.

For dessert, the pristine Lotus Caramel Cheesecake, Mille-Feuille Parfait, and Dates Cake make the perfect ending. So, how was the food delivery experience with Sofitel Bahrain? — a delicious experience that will be repeated to say the least.

If you want to enjoy a food delivery that is worth it, look no further and call Sofitel Bahrain. ✤
