TomYum so Yum at Golden Fork Dubai
Golden Fork Restaurant used to be a famous restaurant in the United Arab Emirates back then.
Nowadays massive restaurants are available in the entire UAE, a lot of options to choose from, different styles, and cuisine.
For a Filipino like me, I would say that most of our favorites are accessible in this country. Many Pinoy would agree on that.
From desserts, main dishes, snacks, all that you can think are almost here. The local Filipino foods available in the market is one of the reasons why many OFW are happy working and living here.
The Philippines may be miles away from us, but this country makes us feel home.
However, decades ago, Filipino restaurants here are very few. You can even count them in your fingers.
Thankfully there are some restaurants that suites different nationalities taste preference.
Before we /Filipinos, enjoy this food accessibility in the UAE, there is one well-known restaurant that caters to our cravings.
None other than the Golden Fork Restaurant
I remember my friends and I usually had our weekend food trip in their Satwa Branch.
Though it was not 100% Pinoy taste that time, we are happy to at least enjoy our meal closed to our Asian taste bud.
One of my favorite back then is their Tom Yum. I really like it, especially when I was not feeling well.
A bowl of it is good enough to cure my headache.
I share this blog as I suddenly remember my old simple days in Dubai while having lunch at Golden Fork Al Barsha two weeks back.
I think this is one of the few branches that still on operation, sadly some already closed.
The TomYum taste brings me back in my early 2000’s memories. So good and taste exactly the same.
Aside from TomYum, we are a fan of their seafood platter back then.
So if you are around Al Barsha area and want to try again the Golden Fork Menu you are freely to go:)
Our Experience: Hubby and a good friend of ours enjoy the day reminiscing our younger years in Dubai.
Service: it was a little slow as there are only two waitresses at that time despite the restaurant is almost half full.
Food: TomYum was great and the pancit. While the seafood platter was a little dry and the tortang talong taste so plain.
One of the great things that never change is the Golden Fork Restaurant signature free starter corn soup and toasted bread. Great!
What I didn’t like that time and makes me uncomfortable is they only have one set of these condiments. Which we think unhygienic. Hope they will improve on this part.
Aside from the condiments issues our dining experience was fine and fun.
What do you think of this restaurant guys?
