I think it has been my habit lately to eat out on Thursday nights. It’s like my mini welcome to the great weekend ahead! This time, I asked my sister, Jholen, to dine with me. And as you know, I’m always making a point to use our Entertainer vouchers just to get the most of the book before it expires. Of course we went to our favorite go-to mall, Sahara Centre.
It’s a choice between Russo and Bennigan’s. I’ve never dined in Russo but Jholen haven’t tried Bennigan’s and as a very good sister, I gave way. Bennigan’s it is.
Bennigan’s is an American fare restaurant that has branches in Sahara Centre, Dubai Mall, and Downtown Dubai.
While waiting for the menu to be given to us, they served a bowl of peanuts.
The menu came.
After ordering, they gave us 2 pieces of bread roll. The black one has squid ink something but thank goodness it tastes like regular bread.
Tip for drinks: They serve them in a very tall and big glass. Jholen’s order of Peach on the Beach mocktail was so huge and I’m so glad i just ordered water.
It’s a nice refreshing drink.
My siter ordered their ribeye steak and chose sautéed mushrooms and Irish haystack onions.
She prefers well done and I prefer medium rare. The solution, we settle on medium done, I really love their haystack onions.
I had lamb chops. I requested them to remove the red currant sauce and ordered sautéed vegetables and Fettuccine Alfredo as sides.
The first lamb chop I tasted had more salt than I prefer but maybe the chef just sprinkled more on that piece since the rest of the chops were cooked to my liking. i will order this again for sure.
To say that we were full was an understatement. Our tummy almost exploded. Those meat were really heavy, Overall, it was a satisfying dinner and we will come back to try their other dishes.
