After Shopping Cafe BARBARIS

ugOhJGcUHPUTime. 12:00-16:00.

Price. 45-69 UAH.

Menu.  The restaurant offers a choice of 2 or 3 courses (salad + soup and/or main course). There is a choice of three dishes in each position. Dessert and beverage are not included. Restaurant type serving average portions, the dishes are hearty and delicious.

We have chosen:

  1. Wok salad with giblets + cream soup with chicken + saltimbocca with turkey
  2. Salad with chicken liver + pea cream soup + fricassee of pork
  3. Vegetable salad with mozzarella cheese + cream soup with chicken + chicken curry

– Salads. Wok salad with giblets as well as a second salad contained chicken liver. The liver was well-fried, delicate taste and made a good combination with other ingredients. Vegetable salad with mozzarella cheese was light and easy, but the grilled cheese added a special flavor to taste.

– First course. Both the cream soups were amazing! The meals were delicious and hearty. In addition, we ordered homemade buns with pump
cin seeds, which were crispy and lush.

– Second course. Saltimbocca with turk
ey rolls is a meal including turkey pieces wrapped with bacon on a bed of mashed potatoes. Juicy meat, but the mashed potatoes as in pork fricassee was not tasty (it is rather poor quality of the product than the chef’s job… but still no good here). The pork fricassee was really delicios. Chicken curry was served with rice. Good, but so far away from the real Indian Chicken curry from The India Palace, of course.

Service. The waitress was very friendly, helpful and attentive, knew the menu well. She named the dishes when serving – this is the right way of serving, which we met only in Restaurants “One2One” and “Yakitoriya”.
