Snunu - Exceptionally good food in a ridiculously simple miliue

Named after a bird, Snunu a mid eastern restaurant based in cluster q of JLT is not really what it seems to be. Yes, a ridiculously simply restaurant with seating for about twenty people with nothing particularly interesting about its interiors or milieu served one of the best seafood, lambchops and chicken i ever tried recently.

A catch up with some friendly bloggers over dinner, Snunu turned out to be a perfect location for serious lovers of food to meet, relish and chat.

We started with some fizzy drink from Russia called Natakhatati. It was quite different from anything we tried before. Then we indulged in fresh Seabass & Tilapia - both prepared so well - delicious, very well cooked and sliding of the bones.

Lamp chops - this really took me by surprise. It was one of the most delicious, succulent, juicy and tasty lamb chops i ever tried.  Then we tried two special chicken spicy & normal with their home made flat bread.

It was over all a very lovely experience. The service…

Doner Kebab
I started off with the classic Doner Kebab which is also the signature item on their menu. A lot has changed from the time I last tried it at their Motor City outlet. The bread has gotten more firmer and better.  Last time, I'd had to deal with issues of the Doner overflowing with salad and sauce and dripping on my hands. The light doner bread was great but it just couldn't hold it all well together.  This time around it managed to strike the right note with the perfect hit of firmdoughiness and crunch that I would have expected from my kebab doner. The doner was nevertheless stuffed in the usual way, but this time around, it was more manageable - thanks to the stiff bread. I was able to press it all down together into palatable shape, without necessarily crumbling the bread.

I went with my usua…
