INSTAGRAM TRIAL BY JURY
Yet another Instagram food business stands before a jury of taste buds.
For this month, we decided to go with a vendor that’s been popping up in Explore a lot lately! SJ Appetite has a sweet tooth to rival ours, it seems. With the amount of tantalizing options, though, we ended up trying two cakes. One, the Cinnamon Bun Cake, was delicious. It’s hard to get the Cinnabon feel but SJ caught it perfectly. The other was the basboosa, which looked pretty but wasn’t anything out of the ordinary. The prices were a huge factor too, SR 120 for a big cake isn’t too bad. This jury rules in favor of the defendant.
Price: Cinnamon Bun Cake SR 120
Basboosa SR 100
Delivery: SR 30-50
Rating Overall: 4

The place is a perfect hole in the wall. Very small and shabby, with a waiter who can barely communicate. It took five minutes just to get menus. But at least we could see the kitchen through a large window.
I tried the mixed lunch platter, it had meat mixed with coconut milk called randang, boiled egg topped with curry sauce, one big prawn cracker (kerupuk) and denden (dried meat).
My brave companions ordered rice and the chicken and beef sate. Honestly, the food was very average. We all agreed that the favorite was the bean sauce sate.
Whenever, wherever, the answer is China Gate’s Shrimp with Dry Chili.
