Balima Café

2 Mar


To all the Madames: Balima’s Croque-Monsieur is the new man of your dreams. Fluffy, dulcet bread topped with velvety baked cheese (ham or turkey) will have you begging for a second date. Rich and delicate to the palate, and best served with mustard spread, this monsieur will never disappoint. Comfort food at its best, your stomach will be singing sweet songs of love. Even McDreamy can’t dare to compare.

The wait staff on the other hand, generally embody the McDreamy antichrist. Frequently non-responsive, the concept of customer service has not yet landed on Balima Island. Forget them, nothing should stop you from enjoying your man.

Except maybe, their soups of the day…Garden-fresh, spoonfuls of heaven like the Shrimp Corn Chowder make for a delightful meal on a cold day (a heavy compliment coming from a Bostonian!).

The only café in Saifi Village, Balima is home to Posh Nation. Goes to show, sometimes love is found in the most peculiar of places.

Ghalghoul Street, Saifi Village
