Barsalata opened in September 2015 and is one of those restaurants which specializes in salads. They have a wide variety of salads and other than this you also get an option to build your own salad where you can chose your own veggies, cheeses, toppings and from 16 different types of dressings.
Other than salads, the restaurant also offers great variety of snacks, breakfast items, drinks, tea and coffee.
I was recently invited to a food discovery session at Barsalata.
As it was iftar time, we started off the meal with dates and a Sparkling Sumac drink. This drink was really refreshing and had infusion of spices to it which enhanced the taste. Perfect for this weather!
We were then served with Tomato Strawberry Gazpacho. This dish tasted more like a cold tomato soup. Highly recommended to tomato lovers!
Following this, we were served with the most unique dish i’ve ever had – FALAFEL MUFFIN! These falafel muffins tasted great along with tahina which was served with these muffins.
We were then served with different salads. Starting off with the Mediterranean Freekeh Salad. This salad had a combination of freekeh,chickpea, labneh, chilli flakes, lemon squeeze and much more! The salad had a base of labneh which was absolutely delicious. Highly recommended to labneh lovers!
Following this, we were served with The Twenty salad which includes 20 ingredients! The salad had amazing combination of veggies and was really filling!
Along with this came the Green Glow fresh juice. This juice was absolutely refreshing – it consisted of cucumber, spinach, broccoli and fresh mint. Absolutely healthy and tasty!
We then tried out their grilled cheese sandwich. OH MY! This sandwich had cheese melting from all sides! The cheese used in were mozzarella and white cheddar cheese and the bread was really good too which was from Baker and Spice. The sandwich was served with date and mustard dip which went great along with the sandwich. With or without the dip, the sandwich was yummy!
Coming towards the end of the meal, i then tried out the Flourless Brownie. Inspite of being flourless, this brownie was among the best i’ve had! So rich and moist, this brownie will definitely satisfy your sweet craving. Do not leave the place without trying this one!!
Ending the meal with some high quality varieties of tea and coffee with great flavors!
Overall, i had a fabulous experience at Barsalata and its a must try if you are looking for some healthy options in Downtown!
