The Food Zoo experience:

The coffees here a pretty average, but it’ll do in a pinch. This cafe is set in the middle of a park. Its actually pretty relaxing, except they are lacking in heaters to keep the place warm. On the day that we went there were about 3 different semi-large functions, and as a result our food took about 40 minutes to arrive (we were warned). The fries were tasty, and the wrap was a less tastier version of El Jannah’s. If you are to order to Mezze Board, order the serving for two people, as you get a larger variety of dips and we all know variety is the spice of life. The Fatit Al Homos was really the only thing that we ordered appropriately for a cold winter’s lunch! It was warm and tasty.

I have to say the breakfast menu is what you want to come for, for me at least.
