This restaurant in Karachi, just 8 days old, is THE place where you get a chance to chow away your sorrows! You may not call it a fancy, fine-dining place, but a small, cute cosy space offering you comfort food. Food which we really don't want to judge, food oozing with cheese and cream and caramel. And it's first of it's kind in Karachi, located on Khy-e-Nishat. I haven't seen any eatery focusing on such a concept. We went there on the 8th day since opening. It was a Sunday and we had to wait like 15 minutes to get a table! Loved the interior, the ambiance; modern yet minimal. Simple, clean, refreshing interior, slightly low on lighting (because my photos didn't get enough light, and turned out okayish also because I was without my equipment). We ordered different versions of Jacket Potatoes, Mac n Cheese, Crab Cigars, and the Three Chicketeers.
You are spoilt for choice when it comes to selecting your toppings for Jacket Potatoes! A lot to choose from. It's a four-step process: choosing your meat (philly steak, fajita, etc), then your base sauce (cheese or herb), then about 12-13 toppings, and finally the boss sauce (Wasabi Mayo, Thousand Island, Balsamic, Honey Mustard etc). Mac n Cheese had flavors too! Classic, Turkey Bacon, Texas Chilli and Popcorn Chicken. We tried Popcorn Chicken and Texas Chilli. Three Chicketeers is basically a trio of fried boneless chicken pieces with different sauces; buffalo, tarragon and chili jam. Ended our meal with trying out both their desserts, Grilled Cheese and Glazed Apple Donut.
Jacket Potato was love at first bite! Hot, fluffy, cheesy and all the delicious things you can imagine! Loved scraping the potato skin off our sizzler! I ordered the Texac Chilli Mac n Cheese on their recommendation, and my two-year old licked it clean (he's a picky eater so if he eats something it's automatically approved and marked as delicious), even though I personally like a thick crisp layer of breadcrumbs, the Mac n Cheese at Babamoo did not have enough crispiness on the top! I was slightly disappointed with the consistency of temperatures as well. One of the mac n cheese on our table was hot and fresh, and one of them was slightly cold. The Crab Cigars and Fried Mac n Cheese Balls were the highlight of the dinner! A new idea, and tasted absolutely amazing! From the three Chicketeers, my favorite was the Tarragon one.
Moving on to desserts, Glazed Apple Donut was finger-licking good. However their caramel sauce could've been slightly runnier and glossier, Grilled Cheese with Vanilla Sauce - liked the idea, but couldn't really comprehend the taste, hence the Apple Donut becoming the favorite!
Would I go back? YES definitely! The helpings were generous and pocket-friendly. We had a chat with the owners, and they told us that they are working on expanding the menu, taking things ahead one step at a time. Here's to wishing Babamoo good luck, and consistency in their quality of food.
