Dine In: The Gathering Bistro

The other night, I managed to pass by The Gathering Bistro at Noor Complex, Sal7iya.
After a long eventful day I simply needed to un-wind, relax and fill my tummy with tasty food..
Upon the first glance, I fell in love with the interior it was so shabby chic mixing between a bazaar and a cozy cafe'

After being greeted by the owners Yousef Al-Saad & Fahad Al-Fulaij few inquiries about our taste in food and we eat and don't eat..
The usual smirk when I menion that I don't eat ketchup, cucumber nor banana's 

Morrocan Cigars
Our first appetizer for the night, minced meat wrapped with a crunchy pastry accompanied by a pesto dip if i'm not mistaken..
It was somewhat average and a bit dry, just felt like it was missing something..

Mini Taco's
Super cute, full of flavour and good enough to share..

Cheese Fondue
Absolutely loved this dish, sofetend Brie Cheese with Honey
The salty and sweet mixture was perfect along with toasted bread, something to consider on the breakfast menu..

Skewered Shrimps
Grilled shrimps marinated with an herb-y spicy sauce
Was cooked to prefection not fishy nor overcooked just right, Could do as a light meal option..

The difference it had that instead of minced meat they used shredded meat which was an interesting change, I loved it since it felt home made but for me I really like the addition of vegetable in my food so maybe bell peppers or mushrooms ?

Mushroom Risotto
Rich and bursting with flavour, but kinda classic no risks were taken but I know lots of my friends who likes to be safe and stick to what they know so that might be the dish for them !

The story here was different, since it had three happy Endings
The first one was Red Velvet, it was rich and my favourite among them all

Creme Brulee
Another dish that I would call safe, it was made perfectly but not my cuppa..

Cookie Pie
Chocolate chip cookie dough with a soft chocolatey center, was a bit too sweet and a bit on the heavy side maybe would have worked better with a dark chocolate center or perhaps along with a smoother kind of milk chocolate?
Overall, it was a lovely night and an interesting experience.
Had the pleasure meeting the owners, I really appreciate their enthusiasm and the amount of work they put into their passion..
Best of Luck Yousef & Fahad and Thank you for your kind invitation..
