State 88 - Hub of Sandwiches

Monday, August 28, 2017 0 Comments A+ a-

Dubai is a city where things can change overnight. There can be a new restaurant, new road or a new car launch in the city which then becomes the talk of the town. 

There is a new eatery in city called State 88. They have a new concept of cooking meat which was initiated by two brothers. It is the only restaurant in Dubai and planning to expand further. It has complete new design and fresh environment. They serve one of the best sandwiches that we can trust on completely. Their secret weapon being they smoke their meat in house. Meat is being slow cooked for 12 hours and is served with salads tossed in delightful vinaigrette. The food is very healthy as it is only grilled, roasted, baked and not fried. We were glad to be invited and we had a great experience.

State 88 is located at City Walk with indoor and outdoor seating arrangements. The decor is very rustic and elegant. The staff is very friendly and provides great service. The pricing is easy on pocket. 

What We Tried There:
  • Chickita Sandwich
  • Chicken 88
  • Avenue 88
  • Feng Shui
  • Sweet Potato Fries 
  • Mixed Cabbage Slaw
  • Nut About You Milkshake
  • Lotus Milkshake
  • Classic Nitro Cold Brew
  • Vanilla Ice cream Cup with Twist

Firstly for drinks we ordered Nut About You Milkshake, it is a mixture of vanilla ice cream with hazelnut crazy paste. It was amazing and had right combinations.

And Lotus Milkshake which had lotus ice cream with lotus biscuit crumbs. This is #MyFavorite as I love the crispiness of biscuit. The milkshakes are freshly made. On your last sip you might want to order one more. This can be my new cheat meal. It is #MustTry milkshakes and worth the price.

We started our meal with Feng Shui Salad, mixture of chicken with light peanut dressing. The taste of each ingredient was completely different from others but yet made very nice combination of everything. It will fulfill your taste buds as well as hunger.

Sandwiches is their main category which you can't miss. In sandwiches we ordered Chickita Sandwich and Chicken 88, both tasted fantastic. Chicken in both the sandwiches are slow cooked for 12 hours and both are served in potato bread. Chickita sandwich had roasted chicken with sweet corn, soya, mozzarella, lettuce and pickles. Chicken 88 had smoked chicken, avocado, tomato, lettuce and mayo, just the way I love it. It was delicious and perfect, both sandwiches are  #HighlyRecommended

From the early birds we tried Avenue 88 which had scrambled eggs with mozzarella cheese and pico di gallo. It was hot and gave a home made feel to it.

For side dish rather then normal potato french fries we ordered Sweet Potato Fries which were baked and crispy. This is definitely #MustTry and too good that you can't resist after having one. We finished it within no time.

And second side dish was Mixed Cabbage Slaw which is red cabbage mixed with mayo and is my husband's favorite.

Lastly I called for Classic Nitro Cold Brew which is coffee with infused nitro. This is going to be definetely a next big thing in town. The benefit of this coffee helps in metabolism.
