Shorbat adas soup at sabroso restaurant

Sabroso restaurant is a mix of Arabic, South Indian, and Mexican. Each culture’s food had unique similarities, making it so easy to merge. 

I was invited for a complimentary dinner at Sabroso Restaurant and it was quite an eventful evening. From trying out the Taco’s, to the chicken enchiladas, to the quesadilla, down to the shorbat adas, to the basabusa, down to the masala dosa, just to name a few. I had a swell time interacting with the Chefs present and learning about each dish and how they are eaten in their culture. 

In this post, I’d be sharing the various cuisines and a little insight for most of the ones I tried out.

More insight on most of the things I had ||

Shorbat Adas Soup

Shorbat Adas Soup is a popular Middle Eastern soup of lentils seasoned with lemon, cumin, and olive oil that is typically served with pitas. I had mine with quesadillas. 


Quesadillas at sabroso restaurant

Quesadillas is a Mexican dish and type of taco, consisting of a tortilla that is filled primarily with cheese, and sometimes meats, spices, and other fillings. 

Chicken Enchiladas

Chicken Enchiladas originated in Mexico. It is a corn tortilla rolled around a filling and covered with a savory sauce. Enchiladas can be filled with various ingredients, including meats, cheese, beans, potatoes, vegetables, or combinations.


Basabusa at sabroso restaurant

Basabusa is a traditional Middle Eastern sweet cake that originated in Egypt. Basbousa which translates as ‘just a kiss’ is a syrupy semolina “cake,” with a prominent buttery flavor, a signature pleasantly sandy texture, made super moist with a generous shower of sugar syrup.  I loved this one! The sweetness was over the top which made it enjoyable. 

Strawberry Mousse

Strawberry mousse

Strawberry Mousse is a soft prepared food (strawberries were used for this) that incorporates air bubbles to give it a light and airy texture. It can range from light and fluffy to creamy and thick, depending on preparation techniques. A mousse may be sweet or savory. This one was sweet. 

Masala Dosa or masale dose or masaldosa

Masala dosa  at sabroso restaurant

Masala Dosa or masale dose or masaldosa is a variation of the popular South Indian dosa, which has its origins in the Tuluva Mangalorean cuisine of Karnataka. It is made from rice, lentils, potato, fenugreek, and curry leaves, and served with chutneys and sambar. This was my highlight of the evening! Chef Indra said I could call them Indian pancakes, and I’d say I fell in love with this dish mostly cause I’m a big lover of pancakes! – I’d attach a video on the “easy masala dosa recipe”. It shows the making from start to finish, and chef Indra was kind enough to explain the process.

I enjoyed my evening, my absolute favorites were the masala dosa, basabusa, and the quesadillas. I enjoyed the tacos too.
