Swaadish – Delicious by name and delicious by nature

If you’ve heard about Swaadish then you probably know about their specialty. A Nutella Samosa which oozes with so much Nutella one would think a whole jar was inside. The twist is that the pastry outside is dry and not oily and also contains a dusting of spice which is unusually different but immensely enjoyable. Avoid wearing white when visiting.

Enough of the warnings though. If you haven’t heard about or seen the new mall, confusingly called “The Mall” in Jumeirah 3, then add it into your GPS as this is the place you need to visit as it’s cute little food court is home to Swaadish. The mall is brand spanking new. It’s a quiet mall which means the parking is plentiful and the experience, peaceful.IMG_9200The owner Raza greets us as he is one of the staff behind the counter, and he works around the clock to ensure the smooth running of this newly opened Pakistani fast food restaurant, a rarity to find inside a mall. Their delivery side of the business is the most popular with them covering Dubai Media City all the way up to J3.

The produce is all supplied by 3 local vendors and the owner Raza himself is previously a Thai trained Chef but decided to stick to his roots and open up this subcontinental kitchen.

As it was Ramadan when we visited they provided dates, a fruit salad and a sweet Rooh Afza (Strawberry flavored) Non-Alcoholic Margarita to help my friends break their fast.

We started with some traditional Dahi Bharray, a cool yoghurt mixture topped with crunchy salad slices and spices.IMG_9201We then munched on these crunchy pakoras; battered and deep fried onions with a mixture of herbs and spices.IMG_9203We then moved onto the mains with a Butter Chicken, a Daal Bukhara and a Mutton Peshawari, all rich in flavor but with their own identities, with the Mutton being a favorite among us.IMG_9204There’s nothing quite like a large, thick and fluffy buttery, garlic naan to soak up your curries with, so fresh n hot out the kitchen that R. Kelly would be jelly.IMG_9208We also tried Swaadish’s Chicken Tikka Biryani which was a little dry for me and personally I would of preferred chicken pieces rather than bone is as it makes it easier for eating and especially sharing.IMG_9206The Chicken Gola Kabab which I foolishly thought was “cola” kabab due to my poor eyesight was perfectly browned minced chicken pieces blended with a mixture of spices and yoghurt and served with magical Masala Fries.IMG_9205I say the fries are magical because they transport me to another place. They create an addiction like no other and I just can’t get enough that I have to order more.

But it’s not all about fried foods, for the health conscious they also have a fresh salad bar.IMG_9215And serve freshly squeezed OJ out of this cool contraption.IMG_9216So it’s safe to say I’ll be going back again to Swaadish as I HAVE to try the Doritos Chaana Chat and for more of these deliciously magically addictive Masala Fries.
