DK Cafe- Review
I have been taking up my food journey pretty seriously over the past one year both at home as well as outside exploring the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia with occasional hopping in Bahrain too.Being a food taster has always been on the bucket list and I am glad it kicked off with my first invite right here in Saudi Arabia.
My husband and I first visited DK Cafe at their Dammam branch in August and were quite impressed by their Karak chai.We were told by the staff that the branch in Khobar is still bigger with more options on the menu.Months later we had a chance to grab a bite at the latter and we were stoked by their minimalistic decor and a simple yet well-crafted menu.
Their menu is primarily based on the concept of rolls/wraps that one can grab on the go with some piping hot Karak chai.The first couple of items we tried were the Falafel roll (SAR 7/-) and the Shawarma(SAR 10/-).Their Falafel deserves a special mention because, despite the fact that smaller older streetside vendors rule the game at this, DK presents you with a kind that you may have never tasted before in terms of a very light yet flavor-packed, savory goodness that left me wanting for more.
The invitation I received was for breakfast and we were served four different rolls along with a cup of Karak each for the two of us.On our table were:
KARAK CHAI (SAR 6/-)
CHEESE OMLETTE (SAR 6/-)
OMAN CHIPS AND CHEESE ROLL (SAR 5/-)
HALLOUMI CHEESE ROLL (SAR 7/-)
HOT DOG (SAR 10/-)
It is certainly rare that all the items on a menu make you go wowwww as you munch on and that is exactly what they with their rolls and wraps.Not a hint of disappointment in terms of flavor, quality or quantity and that is something commendable.The Karak is on point and the next time you feel like finger food or a grab-and-go spot then you know where to crash !
Do take a few minutes to stop and stare up at the wonderful art on the ceiling that seems to look uber cool during both day and night.They have put golden kettles to good use with some creative DIY art on it.
They also serve some desserts and iced beverages so make sure you look around for those too. Another interesting thing about their menu is that they offer their rolls cut into sushi-like portions that go in a box that make a great choice for gatherings.
All in all, I would say this is a place worth visiting if you are in Khobar and just want to have a light snack and relax outdoors or indoors perfect at any time of the day.
