Lunch At MORE Cafe

We spent our Saturday at Dubai Festival City. We had breakfast at IKEA cafeteria then Hubby took a few hours to work. I brought Little C to the play area and had  a good dose of fun. He took a nap after lunch time giving Hubby and I a few minutes to enjoy our meal.

Saturday lunch was spent at a family favorite and homegrown restaurant, MORE Cafe. We have spent oriental breakfast here and couple of dinner but this is going to be our first visit at high noon.

A meal at MORE Cafe always starts with a refreshing ice cold water with mint and lemon.

The restaurant also has branch in The Dubai Ma and Al Murooj Rotana. They all exhibit this suspended table in the center of the dining area.

On top are their unique shabby-chic bolted menu, country breads, and home made marmalade jam.

We chose  to join the long table with plenty of reading materials. All MORE Cafe branch offer WiFi connection and usually on weekdays, these tables are packed with people and their laptops.

Hubby ordered paella – saffron rice with prawns, mixed seafood, chicken, bell pepper, olives and garnished with fresh lemon and tomatoes. If you wish something more authentic, Paella lovers can head to Seville’s Spanish Tapa Bar located at Wafi City.

I chose my Indonesian favorite meal, a plate of Nasi Goreng. Fried rice with coconut sauce, three skewers of chicken satay with peanut sauce served  with spicy kroepek. If you like this dish, you might also wish to try Nasi Goreng served by Noodle Factory.

We were also served a variety of pickles and dipping sauce.

Dining at MORE Cafe in Festival City gives you an a relaxing view of the Festival Marina.

I was eyeing for desert but boy I forgot they do enormous serving here. Too bad I didn’t get to sample their carrot cake. Here’s a sneak peak of their dessert counter.
