We’ve curated the best menu for your full day out in Bahrain.
The Orangery Tearoom and Patisserie – Belgian Waffles
We start our quest for great food with breakfast at The Orangery. With their contemporary décor, tantalizing pastries on display and their beautifully painted teacups and teapots, Orangery catches the eye the moment we step in. It’s a journey across the world.
We scan through the menu and are fixated on Proper Belgian Waffles. Served with mascarpone cream, fresh strawberries, and either Nutella or compote, this breakfast combination is pure satisfaction for the taste buds.
Location: Shaikh Isa Ave., Block 338, Manama
Roma – Salad and Pasta
For lunch, we make our way to our favorite Italian restaurant. Roma has one of the most authentic Italian cuisines that we’ve found in town. The aura is relaxing and pleasant and the servers are friendly and eager to please.
As we carefully go through the menu, they serve us complimentary olive paste and salsa with slices of freshly baked bread. We order an antipasti of rocca salad combined with cherry tomatoes, strawberries and asparagus. For our pasta dish, we went traditional with a very delicious Lasagne San Petronio. Layers of fresh homemade pasta, minced Angus meat, creamy tomato sauce and cheese; this lasagna makes our hearts sing along with the Italian music in the background.
Location: Road 3912, Block 339, Manama
Frangipani – Grilled Salmon Maki
After gorging on a hearty breakfast and light lunch, it’s time to cap the trifecta off with the perfect sushi dinner. Frangipani has quite a modern look to it thanks to its wooden tables and orange chairs.
Their menu is your standard Japanese fare of tempuras, tepanyakis, makis and sushis, all of which you can find at the various Japanese restaurants in Bahrain. However, no one makes Grilled Salmon Maki better than Frangipani. The flakey grilled salmon rolled in rice is blanketed with tempura flakes and topped with special sauce. One set was definitely not enough, so we kept those orders coming in till we sighed with contentment.
