Few months before I left Oman, Copper had just opened. The restaurant oozes industrial chic and it also has three beautiful Harleys placed attractively in the spacious room. Copper has teamed up with Totem so while you wait for your food you may as well have a look at their hep clothing and accessories which is at the further end of the restaurant. Dining with me at this stylish food joint was Manzil, one of my oldest friends who takes her food very seriously.
Copper definitely gives out a radiant vibe that can make any meal enjoyable here. The menu also looked very impressive. We chose our drinks first – Betsy Rose for Manzil and Blue is the New Black for myself (though my drink was just pink in color:/). Betsy Rose is an iced tea comprised of red berry, lemon and rose and apparently, hibiscus too. It tasted like heaven. Blue is the New Black is a blended mix of apple, blueberry, cranberry and lime. Taste wise it was excellent.
The meal began with melt-in-your-mouth starter, Skinny Fries & Brisket. There was nothing skinny about it LOL. Perfectly sliced spuds topped with jalapenos, cheese gravy, brisket, gouda and scallions. Tasteful and a perfect share for two. This only gets better. Our mains were Copper Burger and Ozzie Lamb Chops. I have no words for them!
Of course, I do. The Copper Burger was truly divine. This gourmet joy was a beautiful construction of crushed Angus, brisket, gouda, caramelized onions and jalapeno mayo (kill me!!). It was Manzil’s burger and so unfortunately I only got a bite HAHA.
OZZIE LAMB CHOPS. My oh my. I thought the dish was expensive till I tasted it. Worth every penny! Herb crusted, medium-well cooked lamb chops served with raita. Damn we had a good meal!
It was one of the best meals after a long time. With its perfect ambiance and marvelous food, Copper is definitely worth not one but many visits! Their website is totally amazing too, check it out at www.copper.restaurant/
