When service is ridiculously slow: Furn Bistro & Bakery @ The Westin Bahrain City Centre (3. December 2017)

| April 17, 2018 | 1 Comments

The Furn Bistro and Bakery remains a good place for dinner but there is definitely one issue with it – the speed of the service, respectively how long it takes the kitchen to prepare the food. Luckily, it is worth waiting as the dishes are actually quite tasty. The “Humus Bil Lahme (lamb meat)” (3.200 BHD) is absolutely great and a nice change to the regular hummus you get everywhere.

The “grilled salmon (green peas, saffron sauce)” (9.500 BHD) on the other hand is a bit of a rip-off. I mean, the piece is tiny and rather dry and if you check how many vegetables there are, then it is definitely overpriced. I must say that the green peas basis for the salmon is super tasty though.

The place itself is definitely nice – nothing spectacular but nice to sit down and definitely more atmospheric than most restaurants in the mall. When you come, just make sure you bring some time as we were waiting a solid 45 minutes until the dishes finally arrived. And while waiting for the hummus was fine, it wasn’t worth it for the salmon.

I started the blog in October 2009, while living in Milan which I definitely consider to be one of the food capitals of the world. I was in touch with food since my early childhood (as my father is a former chef). Whenever I can, I travel the world to discover new places, to meet people but mostly to try local dishes and to find hidden gems! If you know a place worth going, please drop a line to: info@thediningexperience.org.
