I was at Al Hamra Luxury Center yesterday after work and it was way past my lunchtime, I saw Brown Tomato staff were just opening the restaurant so I decided to treat myself to a feast. It was almost 5:00 PM and I was their first customer or should I say reviewer?
Brown Tomato is from the same people behind Chocolate & Macaroon, inside the ambient was pleasing with simple-yet-exquisite decorations, dimmed lighting, Italian-themed music playing in background. I liked how tables were placed, there were long tables and big tables with comfy couch-like seats. They said KD5 is the minimum charge for the big table, so I went ahead and sat down since I knew I’ll end up paying more anyway.
Sitting inside didn’t give me the-being-confined feeling since the restaurant was open everywhere. I grabbed the menu to see that they serve salads, pasta, pizza, burgers, appetizers, and dessert.
Rocca e funghi; Salad with wild rocca and fresh zaatar, mushroom, balsamic sauce & parmesan cheese (simple and tasted good).
S – 2012; Breaded shrimps with chilli mayo sauce (crispy and tasty).
Double Agent; Double beef burger with mayo, garlic mayo, lettuce, bacon, caramelized onion (average taste, I expected better tasting beef).
French Fries (tasty).
Mashed potatoes (Tasted too cheesy, didn’t favor it)
Buhamad pancake; Mini pancake topped with salted caramel sauce, chocolate sauce and vanilla ice cream (tasted good).
I saw they had hot and cold drinks but I picked regular diet cola, I have to say that their food presentation is excellent. My total check came KD17.700, I think Brown Potato is a great place for pasta and pizza rather than burgers, after all it’s an Italian restaurant. As I said the ambient was great and staff were friendly and responsive, they currently open from 5:00 pm upward.
