I have a thing for pubs that know how to incorporate dim lights, an outdoor area with romantic lights and food so damn good, it puts your alcohol to shame!
Mr Toad’s, housed at the Premier Inn in Dubai Investment Park, is your new neighborhood pub and kitchen that knows how to do all the above perfectly right! I was extremely impressed with it’s set up when i walked in and even though it may look like a familiar pub or sports bar, there is a surreal charm to it. After all, Jack lives there, and for all those who know me, I used to love Mr. Jack 🙂 A LOT!
A live artist was singing melodious songs and his voice will touch your soul. It felt like he was meant to be there!
The outdoors were romantic but also perfect for friends who wanted to just chill. The placed was packed and with the charm it was oozing, i could see why.
The service was friendly and the food was more than just fine! I tried:
Wild Mushroom & Parmesan Arancini served with a smoked tomato pesto sauce. It was definitely one of the best arancini’s i have ever had and that pesto sauce was genius!
Paneer Butter Masala on toasted Naan Bread – Whoever thought of serving this the way it was was miraculous! It was one of the tastiest forms of paneer i had ever had and that being served here won me over! They have normal portions but these bites were to die for!
Garden Veggie Burger – This veggie burger was loaded with a patty filled with greens and it was absolutely delicious! The thick cut fries it came with were quite good but the burger itself was very appetizing!
Black Bun Burger – This was not vegetarian but it was too pretty not to be shown off! I am sure they could make your garden burger in the black bun if requested though i didn’t ask.
And now comes one of the best desserts i have ever had! It was so simple but tasted heavenly. This Sticky Toffee Pudding came topped with vanilla ice cream and a syringe filled with delicious Toffee Sauce. It came in the perfect portion size and tasted really amazing.
Sports fans will feel at home here with screens perched up on the walls and for those who don’t want anything to do with sports, there are 2 areas where you can sit, relax and enjoy your meal and drinks. This place has a lot to offer and you will not walk out being disappointed.
