Marassi Al Bahrain’s food trucks
Time Out Says
Alongside this, four other food trucks (the classic kind) are staggered throughout the beachside venue. These are Arab Street, Le Creperie, Terminal Burger and Seed.
But as it turns out, getting food is not easy. By the time we arrive, every truck has run out of something. Terminal Burger doesn’t have fries, Seed is out of some smoothie ingredients, Arab Street has no meat and Le Creperie only has some sliced tomatoes.
At first we think this could be a fluke, but we head back three weekends in a row to find the same situation by 3pm. It seems they haven’t planned for the amount of people now flocking to the new beach.
Despite this, when we do finally manage to get our hands on some grub, it’s delicious. Terminal Burger’s fries are excellent. Crispy on the outside and soft within, they pair perfectly with their messy, juicy burgers. (Luckily, they’re worth the 45-minute wait between queuing and ordering.) .
Meanwhile, on another visit, we taste Arab Street’s dal makani, which is a creamy, flavourful delight, too.
Seed, which has its home in Saar’s Nakheel Centre, usually serves a bevvy of fresh smoothies, sandwiches and salads, and while the menu is shortened for the Marassi Al Bahrain crowd, you can still expect super clean eats.
Sadly, we haven’t yet managed to get anything from Le Creperie. (It must be awesome if they keep running out of food.) The whole debacle certainly won’t stop us from trying again.
The Bill (for two)
1x Chicago burger BD2
1x Beirut burger BD2.2
2x small water 400 fils
The bottom line
With great grub, the food trucks in Marassi impress. But make sure you get your order in early.
