Location: Al Khoudh, Al Mazoon Service Street A restaurant where everything costs a rial? How is this possible? Surely they had to compromise on something essential to be able to charge only a rial! And the compromise is always on quality and flavor! So I entered 1 café with an empty stomach and filled with doubt and skepticism. So they brought out the first dish, Pomegranate chicken tenders. Shocker! It tasted good! Just a fluke I thought.! So then they brought out the second appetizer, BBQ chicken cheese fries. Also delicious! I still wasn’t convinced though, because I have visited too many restaurants that make good appetizers but it usually goes downhill from the main course! So they brought out the burgers, and I’m like great! Another place that makes pretty burgers that don’t taste good. WRONG AGAIN! As I was served the pizza, the pastas, the coffees and the drinks I realized that I was wrong and “judged the book by its cover”! This restaurant legitimately had good food, and yes, EVERY ITEM ON THE MENU cost only 1 rial! There are two items that, in my opinion, needed slight adjustments: 1- the chicken barrel roll needed a little bit of a kick, with the addition of some Jalapeños or chili flakes for example. 2- The original burger needed some work with the marination/spice of the beef. Other then that, try as I might, I just couldn’t find anything that would warrant knocking off a full point. This is definitely a restaurant worth visiting and taking the entire family, friends, and the neighbors too at 1 rial per dish! Scoring: 9.5/10 Favorites: Chicken mushroom pizza, Bolognese pasta, the Black burger Needs slight improvement: Chicken Barrel Roll, Original Burger
