Madinaty's Gavi Makes Popcorn Frappés & Sizzler Butter Steaks

Those of us whose affinity for weekend brunches and breakfast dates runs deep might find solace amongst their belgium chocolate covered pancakes and smokey eggs benedict.

Unlike the popular narratives plaguing our minds, comfort food doesn’t always have to come in volatile brown paper bags that fall apart at their super glued seams, cardboard boxes and crunchy styrofoam cups. If anything, the innate beauty of ‘post-mental breakdown comfort food consumption’ is the way in which we actively choose to morph the occasion into a ritual. It’s the act of unravelling a hearty burger and a handful of seasoned wedges and plating them elegantly with dill pickles lining the parameters that inherently re-invigorates our soul. 

And because comfort food is borderless, international cuisine expert Gavi has curated a menu’s worth of foods that tackle both Thursday evening junk sprees and upscale dining experiences. The intersectional spot offers saucy platefuls of nachos, shrimp risotto, sizzler butter steak and burger sliders; lending themselves favourable to indecisive air signs and Arab family food sharing rituals alike. 

Those of us whose affinity for weekend brunches and breakfast dates runs deep will find solace amongst their shakshuka, belgium chocolate covered pancakes and smokey eggs benedict. They’ll also rummage through their drinks menu wondering whether the quaint option of a fourth cup of iced coffee outways the unwavering desire to plummet into a mason jar’s worth of marshmallow milkshake.
