Last April, along with a number of bloggers, I was invited to the opening of the newest branch of Baguette Express in Dubai.
Baguette Express is a restaurant originally from Scotland and now one of UK’s fastest growing retail-based food franchises.
I am a big bread eater! I love anything breads. That is why I was really looking forward for this particular food tasting session. I remember during my trip in Paris and Southern France, I live on baguettes everyday (and croissant).
The night started with a ribbon cutting to officially open the branch. The new branch is located at the Emaar Business Park in Dubai which is very near to my office (nice nice nice). As they have mentioned, they are finalizing their delivery service within the area very soon (needless to say that I am happy about it).
We were offered a buffet of their specialties for us to try. Good thing I had a light lunch so I can accommodate almost everything (if not all) in the menu.
Baguette Express specializes in providing unlimited fillings that can be stuffed in your favorite baguettes, paninis, wraps and sandwiches.I love the idea that you are in control of what goes in to your sandwich. In fact, they have over 25 filling varieties that we can go loco about
Aside from their bread based selections, the restaurant also offers fresh pastas, salads and soups. I immediately helped myself with a plate full of salads.
Almost all the bloggers during the night recommended that I should save some space to try their pastas. And I am glad I did. This I can say became my favorite in their menu.
We also helped ourselves with their dessert selections. I got a couple of cheesecakes, a brownie and a tiramisu. My favorite was the tiramisu.
They always say that good food should have good company, and I am glad that I was able to catch up with my blogger friends and I we were able to compare our preferences in the menus, I love how we talked about food intelligently, like it was another branch of chemistry (well, some can argue that it is). Most of us voted for the pasta but I think it’s up for you to decide and shout out for your favorite.
