Favourites Forever - Cream Centre
As much as I love to eat out and explore new places and food as I do, there are times when you just want to sit back in an old favourite, look at a familiar menu and order the usual. And what better place than Cream Centre to do so. An Indian (read, desi) restaurant to the core, a vegetarian one that too (clearly reasons enough to be on my favourite list, which it has been since my Mumbai days). I call the cuisine desi despite there being pastas and pizzas and now even an oriental section on the menu, because, well those are very Indian renditions of those popular international dishes. Customized to the spice loving Indian palette. And the proof is in the fact that every visiting relative from back home, we have brought here has absolutely loved the food. But it isn't only the food we go there for. It is also one of the best serviced places I have been to in Dubai across all budget segments. It is place where the servers welcome you as an Indian father would welcome the guests at his daughter's wedding. And the kind of staff that leaves you feeling good about the place even on a Dubai-hot summer's night when you are sweating all over your food due to faulty air conditioning (happened last summer). The kind of place that even offers you free trial dishes on the house if it is your lucky day (please make those dal paranthas a permanent feature on the menu, they were fabulous). And more importantly, despite being immensely popular, the place loves to try new things, be it the winter outdoor seating or a new dishes on the menu.
