Joie de vivre

“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well if one has not dined well.”
while just giving a thought to this quote, a jaunty feeling pass by, I seize to convict rather Shoot it, Eat it & Blog it.
So, let your gusto soul revive.
As Ramadan has just started so, brace yourselves with the bottomless food, iftar deals, and buffet menu, even just a thought of it makes me GLUTTONY #astaghfartalks.¬†ūüėÄ
In this reverent month the acme taste buds, the joy of eating is at its apex.
To feed my feeling, last night I had a chance to visit ZAOQ for Iftar Buffet, arrived early & sombre for about 7.00 pm booking, at reception was given greeting, as usual,  it was my second experience with ZAOQ.
At 10 past 7.00 staff started to serve LAL sharbat to all the waiting customers which were being seated. 5 minutes later, the hunger game begins, there were plenty of staff on duty and all seemed to be resolute.
Serene ambiance with the side view of the shore, and lost in your thoughts … but hey its iftar so yeah indulging with that absorbing the charm decore.
Menu; There was wide variety of dishes starting off with the rituals; pakoras, samosa, spring rolls, shawarma, tempura, chana chat, Dahi baray, red bean salad, pasta salad, Russian salad, fruit chat, moving on to the other dishes , chicken tikka boti, Makhmali kebab, karhai, wings, palak paneer, biryani apart from desi stuff 2 dishes of Chinese cuisine were also there, i.e. chicken chow mien, egg fried rice with chicken Manchurian. finishing off with the desserts there were Gulab jamuns, Caramel egg pudding, Custard, and kheer.
Timing; starting off with the Maghrib Adhan till 8:30 pm
Service; staff was humble and help[ful 9/10. ( not giving 10/10 because there is always room for improvement )
The food; My verdict about ZAOQ would be is good to go when we talk about desi food, completely flavored in every critic sense. though I found Chinese dishes were unsavory, not appetizing at all. My personal favorite was Kebab. All in all, it was a good and smooth experience.To be fair the meal or parts of it, was good, par excellence.
Here are some pictures for your interest.

In the chicken-or-the-egg problem of food and mood, do the moods hatch the foods, or do the foods hatch the moods?
for me, food wins, and that made my last night scrumptious.
