Roasters: Gourmet Coffee House

roasters.jpgA new restaurant has recently opened up in the ever-so congested Zamzama area, located on the first floor above Baan Thai. A tastefully decorated restaurant serves some delicious food, deserts and aromatic coffee. This diner probably began operations barely a week and a half ago, but today’s visit was finger lickin’ good.

The menu is not catered for the Mind-Your-Manners eating style but more so in the line of Get-Down-Dirty style. Burgers, steaks and fries type of menu, awesome deserts and gourmet coffee. On my first visit I choose to enjoy a helping of Chilly Cheese Burger. This mouthful juicy burger beats all other burger joints in Karachi hands down, adios to the rude waiters of Gun Smoke I could easily compare it to the juicy Fudruckers or any other reputable international burger joint. The other members of our group had helpings of Chicken, Fish and were treated to a good soup in a bread bowl we all came back satisfied.

Don’t just take my word for give it a shot it is possible Roasters might also tingle your buds.

    was there myself on Tuesday night and even though I was only on green fresh salads, the chicken cheese bites and bread onthe cheese melt were to die for. there fried icecream certainly needsto be more “fried” (hardcore tempura style) but otherwise, its wonderful. owned by the Arizona Grill management and team, the quality is quite alright. not too pricey, its definitely on my always-visit list. decor is absolutely divine, giving a proper cafe feel to it. do go.

    Any ideas on the price range? It’s one of the most important things in a restaurant review! :)

    competitive, same as arizona. berry drinks etc were about 125 each. side orders were about 125ish. salads and starters were 295-295. and desserts were about 175-295 (i think). coffees were about 175ish. not bad me thinks. for one starter, one salad, one mineral water, three drinks, two desserts and one cheese melt sandwich out bill totalled 1886. prices are exclusive of tax.

    Chilli cheesburger was 335. I would say dinner would easily range from 400-450 per head.

    This means that for a person with a big appetite like mine (who can regularly eat one and a half large pizzas of Pizza Hut, and who usually runs up an 800 Rs. bill in Nandos’), dinner would easily range from 800-900 Rs. I wonder how everyone here can afford such high prices :) Seriously there was a time when I used to think that even KFC and Pizza Hut were expensive. Now they seem cheap in comparison.

    Just visited the place last night. Tried their stuffed chicken strips for starters and then the chilli cheeseburger. Both were quite good. Washed it down with peach colada, which was ok. The owner is currently building a cigar place on the second floor, and another restaurant on the top floor. All in all, another worthy addition to zamzama’s eateries.

    p.s. the bathroom was good, but the one at cafe flo is the best :)
