Sweet and savory is not your everyday combo and the thought of combining the two is something you’d think twice or thrice about. That is exactly what I thought when I took a look at their menu!
Location: Clinton Street Baking Co. & Restaurant, Burj Views, Downtown Dubai
Started in New York as a small-scale wholesale bakery, Clinton St. Baking Co. is widely recognized for their classic American flavours. Their outlet here in Dubai is also done up with that NY vibe. They’ve got both indoor and outdoor seating. Since the weather is getting cooler, the outdoor seating is recommended. We visited on a Thursday evening and the ambiance was quite restful as their peak hours are during lunch time.
They are best known for their All-Day Breakfast which includes their oh so delicious pancakes.
They also have desserts and cakes which look absolutely tempting. They next birthday cake I buy for anyone, is totally going to be from here.

Honestly, the Buttermilk Fried Chicken and Waffles is something I’ve never imagined but I don’t regret it one bit. The waffle was on the spot with the sugar, the butter and it’s fluffiness. The the two pieces of chicken were cooked to perfection and the two together with the maple butter was a match made in heaven. The portion size is quite a lot (my face for scale) so I would recommend the dish be shared by two. Note to myself too. 😛
The waffle and this rich chocolate milkshake known as the Classic Extra Thick Chocolate shake was all I needed for that day’s dinner and the next day’s lunch. It’s that filling! More than being thick, I felt it was just more rich in terms of the cocoa.
The next item I tried was the BBQ Short Rib Sandwich, which too had a hefty portion size. The meat was packed with flavour and it came along with sides – french fries. I would recommend this dish to those who enjoy the strong smokey flavour and don’t find it too overpowering.
Overall, it was a satiating experience and can’t wait to try their pancakes and the mexican fish tacos the next time I visit, which will be soon since I live 2 mins away.
So I hope you guys do try the place and let me know how your experience goes! More coming soon!
