Hello again, Carino's! | Lady & her Sweet Escapes

Hello again, Carino's!

One weekend, Ed and I had a boring night at home. We went window-shopping at Burjuman Centre to console ourselves. Then, out of the blue, we decided to have our dinner at Carino's. It's been over a year since we had our meal at the Italian grill. We love Carino's, but we often forget that the restaurant exists at Burjuman due to its hidden location. Carino's Italian Grill is at the junction of the business center and the shopping mall, away from the retail shops, secretly waiting to be discovered!

One of the things I adore about Carino's is the homey ambiance. The large windows, wooden furniture and photos on the wall create a pleasant atmosphere for casual dining.

I couldn't believe I spent almost 2 years without the taste of Carino's delectable dishes!

The one I missed the most!

On the salad menu, we chose the savory Pecan-Crusted Chicken.

The Tuscan Ribeye marinated in herbs and spices was flavorful in every bite.
The serving comes with a delicious Italian pasta.

The Bill:
Pecan Crusted Chicken: 45 AED
Tuscan Ribeye: 81 AED
Signature Drinks: 20 AED each

It was a huge mistake for me to leave my discount coupons at home. We should have gotten 25% off the total bill. Well, another lesson learned. From now on, I will be carrying the coupons in my pouch wherever I go. Who knows, another random night might turn into a dinner-date night.
