I had been long wanting to try the Raju Omelet, but as their branches are in the other end of the city, we kept delaying visiting this place
We were very excited when we came to know about their new branch in JLT and we decided to check it out.
As the JLT outlet was jam-packed when we visited, we decided to go to their outlet in Al- Quoz area.
The restaurant is around a 15 minutes walking distance from the Noor Bank Metro station and we used the GPS to reach the place.
We were welcomed by the smiling staff in Mumbai style Khaki pants and white shirt complete with white Gandhi topis on.
My first impression of the interiors was “quirky” and “eye-catching”. The place had Bollywood vibes to it, with Bollywood dialogues, “punny” posters and egg facts on the wall. The age-old transistor (radio), typewriter and the sign from the State Bank of India made me nostalgic!
The food we ordered:
We started with the famous Masala Half fry, which came with Pav bread. Masala half fries had a generous dressing of spiced onions, green chilies, chopped tomatoes and ginger garlic. It was rich in flavors and loved the way the yolk was oozing out, just perfectly cooked.
Next up was the Egg Kejriwal: The chilies, coriander and the cheese combination for the egg toppings were absolutely yummy. I felt it was a little bland, as the spice level was not very high.
Next was the Mumbai omelet sandwich: This was an omelet sandwiched between two pav bread pieces. The chutney spread on the pav was really tasty. They also gave a yummy green chutney to go with it. It was lip-smackingly good. This was my favorite and had one more serving of the same.
Last but not the least was the Chicken Tikka egg roll: Mr. M loved it. The chicken was soft and succulent, well who doesn’t love Chicken Tikka right? And Chicken tikka rolled in the egg parantha is a foodie’s dream come true 😉 The roll was scrumptious and filling.
For drinks, we had the masala lemonade. This is a lemon soda with some tangy spices, in other words, it was what we Indians call it “chatpata”.
The total bill was approximately around 100 AED for two people.
Overall, I loved this place and will definitely recommend this place to friends and family. This place is egg lovers’ paradise; however, they also have other items like Biriyani and chicken curries in their newly launched menu. The portions are generous and great value for money.
