Barocco Lounge: Chic Restaurant in Mohandiseen
25 El Esraa Street, Off Lebanon Street
After a hard days shopping in Lebanon Street we felt this would be a great place to rejuvenate and readily ordered our drinks; one deliciously creamy cappuccino (15.95LE), a green tea with fresh mint (11.95LE) and strawberry juice (17.95LE). The strawberry juice was slightly bitter for our taste buds but following our complaint, it was re-blended perfectly with no fuss.
After much deliberation, we decided on fried mozzarella sticks (25.95LE), French onion soup (15.95LE) and chicken strips (25.95LE) for starters. Our fried mozzarella sticks were juicy and perfect for sharing, as were the chicken strips. The onion soup was small but exquisite, tempting us into our mains.
Saving the best till last, we had brownies and our choice of ice cream (23.95LE) to share. The brownie was warm and sweet, complimented with a scoop of excellent caramel ice cream, creating the most heavenly dessert.
For just over 300LE we had a superb lunch for three in a comfortable and fashionable atmosphere and would recommend this place to anyone looking for a good meal – especially those with a sweet tooth.
