Vida Downtown is a posh boutique hotel located in the heart of Dubai, just minutes away from Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall. The 3 in 1 restaurant here boasts of a lavish Iftar buffet and Masala! decided to try it out.
As soon as you enter, the aroma of food welcomes you. 3 in 1 serves modern Oriental cuisine, and the menu changes everyday. The buffet had an elaborate salad spread, which if you are a health freak, you will be haven. There are two choices of soup and a few hot mezzeh options. I opted for the lentil soup which was creamy! The Zatar manakesh was divine and was seasoned to perfection. There was a live pizza station as well rolling out freshly baked margherita pizza. The restaurant's buffet concept is unique as the main course is served at your table. The main course dishes are not a part of the buffet, and a limited set menu consisting of fish, kebabs are served hot to the table. After the main course, when I got ready for dessert, I was lost! There was so much variety! Arabic sweets, Indian sweets, cakes, mousse and what not. If you have a sweet tooth, one trip to the dessert section will not be enough to try everything. The red velvet cake, chocolate fudge cake, Um Ali and crisp baklavas were my top choices. To top it off, 3 in 1 offers a wide range of drinks too. tamarind and rose water, laban and fresh juices are inclusive in the deal.
