B+F Roadside Diner – Bareeq Al Shatti

B+F Roadside Diner - Bareeq Al Shatti

B+F Roadside Diner (Telephone: 24698836 – Map ) is a burger restaurant in Bareeq Al Shatti. B+F is part of a Kuwaiti chain of casual dining restaurants to which Slider Station also belong. B+F is probably the most popular burger restaurant in Oman. It is located in Bareeq Al Shatti in Shatti Al Qurum directly opposite of Wasabi Sushi.

B+F is an extremely busy restaurant, if you go during a weekend or at peak hours you may have to wait for up to an hour to get a table. B+F is relatively small in size, tight, very crowded and can be a bit noisy. B+F is liked by all sorts of people, but especially the 15 to 25 years demographic of segregated groups of boys sand girls wearing finely color coordinated dishdashas, kummahs, abbayas and shilas. It is one of these places where young people visit to get noticed.

The menu of B+F is long and extensive. It offers starters, burgers, sandwiches, salads, grills and pizzas. The starters that B+F offers are interesting, but I always prefer to order Dynamite Fries (RO 2.250) from the fries section (not the starters section) to start my meal. This comes as a bowl of fries topped with homemade chilli, melted cheddar, crumbled beef bacon, roasted onions and jalapenos in an amazing chipotle ranch sauce. The portion of the fries is enough for two or three people to share.

Over the years, I have tried every single burger offered at B+F, but I have not had any other kind of main (salads, sandwiches, pizzas, etc) from the menu! The burgers at B+F can be offered in burger style or slider station, but as the gay Filipino waiter at B+F used to say: only girls order slider style at B+F. On this visit I ordered my favourite Dynamite Burger in burger style (RO 2.850) [not pictured] which had a tender beef patty topped with cheddar cheese, grilled onions, jalapenos, and chipotle ranch sauce. The bun on my burger for some reason looked unusually sad and soggy, but that did not change the fact that it was light and made my burger feel divine and delicious.

For the dessert we ordered a Chocolate Brownie Pudding (RO 3.250) which comes as a bowl of chocolate brownie mixed with pecans, chocolate sauce, and toffee cooked in an oven and served with vanilla ice cream on the side. This usually comes screamingly hot out of the oven, so you should careful not to burn your tongue having it. I cannot ever get tired or bored of this dangerously delicious dessert. Pro tip: you can ask for an additional scoop of ice cream if you are sharing this with other people.

B+F offers a number shakes and smoothies, but I did not order any of them during this visit. They are nice, but can be a bit too heavy.

In total we ordered 1 starter, 2 burgers, 1 dessert and 2 bottles of water. Our bill came to RO 15.540.

The service at B+F was alright during this visit of ours, the place was crowded, so it was a bit difficult to get the attention of the waiters. This did not affect our experience.

B+F is one of my favourite restaurants in town and it serves some of the best burgers I had in the whole entire world. If you have not been there already you must be out of your mind.

    I don’t see the importance of mentioning someone’s sexual orientation while making a food review.
    Otherwise, this is a good review and I do follow this blog for tips where to dine out next.
