Rest : The Earth Plate
Meal : Lunch
Loc : Hotel Sahara Star, right outside the domestic airport. Santa Cruz
A quick working lunch on our way back from a suburban meeting. We hopped into Sahara Star, to nosh at Mabruk but unfortunately they were not open for lunch. Namak, which i like but cant handle in the day was shunned for their coffee shop.
The coffee shop covers plenty of ground and is laid out in the inner ring, the outer of course faces their lagoon with specialty restaurants around it. The menu offers everything from Italian, Mediterranean, Indian to Oriental.
We got the mushroom pizza with mozzarella, it was a bit sour, but was a good pie.
The mezze platter is slowly turning into my fav thing in the world. We got the muhamrah, hummus, tabouleh and dolmades. Everything was good, not spectacular but pretty good.
Overall, the place has very little character, the seating is a little uncomfortable but the food is good. I havent yet had a bad meal at the Sahara Star. Not a bad place to have a working lunch. They also offer a lunch buffet at 1200 + taxes. However i am not too impressed with the pricing. I think 5 star hotels in metros are completely off their rocker.
