Breakfast at Tashkent is certainly an option to consider if you’re in the Barsha-1 area, especially if you like cold cuts. For AED25 you get a couple of cold beef sausages, a few cold cut slices of chicken and beef, a few pieces of mild yellow cheese, two folded creps, some gel like jam, two pieces of toast to spread the jam-gel on and finally, two fried eggs. Not bad for the price. Oh, and best of all – Lavazza coffee.
Located on the ground floor of the Dusseldorf Business Point Building, spitting distance from Emirates Mall, Tashkent is one of those restaurants I had driven past a zillion times but never been to. The interior is simple, clean and comfortable, with one entrance to the MOE main street and the other to the building’s small interior courtyard.
The morning server seemed bored and grossly unmotivated, and no amount of joking and teasing could coax a smile of out him. We named him Handsome Grumpy. I am limiting my review and rating to breakfast which, let’s face it, was not the most exciting in the world. I hear their lunch and dinners are better but that is for another time. Based on this experience, I may have to drive by another zillion times to find the will to go back.
