This review will be a little different, as I’d like to take you through our experience in general, still counts as a food review though 🙂
So last night, Ramses Hilton (a place I hadn’t been to in years), held this cool cozy event at one of their restaurant Citadel Grill, all the big social media butterflies were invited, and us humble foodies 🙂
The restaurant had a very nice ambiance, candle lights (which made photographing the food a bit of a challenge). Also joining that event was Miss Belgium and her friends, which was definitely an appreciated addition to our pleasurable experience 🙂
As we entered the restaurant, we were greeted by the Greek Head Chef, Dimitrios Koutsonikolas, who also gave a very cool Ramses Hilton branded apron to everyone coming in, and it was a pleasure meeting him for sure.
Now to the good stuff!
First, you need to know this is a seafood/Mediterranean restaurant. There were some hors d’oeuvres on the main table, from shrimp cocktails, smoked salmon rolls, cutout roast beef slices, roasted chicken, different salads (like Caesar salad & crab salad), a delicious paste with berries on top (that I just loved, but couldn’t get a clear grip on what’s in it) and other assortment of shrimps and salmon.
After we munched on these yummy treats for a while, we were served the main course. It had grilled buttery shrimps, grilled salmon and seabass marinated to perfection, and on the side, steamed vegetables and risotto with a Parmesan twist (literally rolled in a huge Parmesan cheese wheel in front of us by the Head Chef, and I must say the seabass was amazing and the risotto was one of the best I’ve had in a long time!
Afterwards, I was told the chef wanted to take a picture with the foodies in his kitchen, so we all gathered around to go in, and as we did, it was in fact a surprise birthday celebration for 4 of us April born foodies (including myself), with a delicious buttermilk cake (with BISCOFF FROSTING made by me good friend Ramy Soliman (@ramysoli), I was very happy at this point, especially with the awesome Batman figurine they got me.
We sang happy birthday, took a few more pictures with the Chef and the Hilton team & calls it a night.
Definitely a night I won’t forget, and I totally recommend you give Citadel Grill a visit soon.
