Already fans of the original Al Karama outpost, The Huntr couldn’t wait to visit Raju Omlet Al Quoz – read on to discover the full review…
Raju Omlet has grown up. He sticks to opening times (the original Al Karama restaurant was somewhat haphazard – but that was all part of its charm) and he has a lush new cafe to call home right in the heart of Dubai’s quirky warehouse district – Al Quoz.
This is a very snappable spot. The walls are peppered with fun egg-based quotes and puns, and Bollywood paraphernalia decorates the space transporting you to India. A concrete fall and mismatched wooden furniture add a fun, rustic vibe. The service here is also great – the staff are friendly and welcoming.
So how’s the food? Eggscellent. If you are eggetarian (sorry), you are going to love Raju Omlet. The Huntr visited during a quiet time (12noon on a weekend day – it gets absolutely packed at breakfast time) and sampled the following: Rice Bhurji (18AED) scrambled eggs mixed with basmati rice, grated boiled eggs and spices. A perfect blend of carbs and proteins. The chef’s signature Eggs Lazeez (19AED) –melted cheddar cheese with boiled eggs steeped in a delicious tomato gravy. Divine. Eggs Kejriwal (18AED) a yummy combination of eggs, chillies, cheese and mushrooms inspired by the famous recipe of Mumbai’s 100-year-old Willingdon Club. And last but not least – the Chicken Tikka Egg Roll (19AED).
To end the meal on a sweet note, we sampled Raju’s homemade ice cream popsicles in chocolate and saffron pistachio flavours. Both were tasty and we recommend you do the same.
Drinks-wise, we opted for the regional favourite Karak tea (4.50AED) and freshly-squeezed OJ (10AED).
Reasonably priced, eggsceptionally tasty and truly unique – this is a spot we’ll come back to again and again.
Insider tip: Why not visit for dinner? It’s quieter and you can sample some of the delicious sounding dinner menu items.
