Need an affordable dining spot? Soy and pepper provides that with no compromise on the food!
I normally never venture into Deira (traffic phobia really) and if I do its normally via a metro, so I was happy to know that Soy and Pepper was located in Reef mall - a nice 2 minutes walk away from the Salah al din metro - Convenience at its best!
Soy and pepper has a very lovely and cozy ambiance perfect for a get together with family and even friends! The food too is really upto the mark with some of my favourites being the tom-yum soup, the fried dumplings and my chicken in hot garlic sauce.

|The Tom Yum soup - mix of prawns, mushrooms and a thin seafood broth.|
For the mains my dining bud opted for the Beef Sisig, which she personally enjoyed - strips of beef sauteed with onions and mayo topped with a sunny side up egg. The mayo surprises you giving out more of a cheesy flavour - complementating the beef really.

For dessert, our friendly waitress insisted we try the Leche Flan (the pac-man below) she was confident we would love it. She was right.
The presentation alone won us over - simple and neat. The dessert although sweet is what a desert should be - Sweet!
Would we be back? Does a human need water to survive? The answer to both those questions is the same.
