Abraham's is a casual dining restaurant situated at the eastern side of the Munroe Road Flyover. Not the typical looking food stop you will expect to find on Munroe Road but about 8 seconds from swinging left you come upon this monstrous green building almost begging you to stop and investigate.
Parking can be a real nightmare depending the time of day or night you decide to visit but I think the experience is
worth it. On entering the building you are greeted with the powerful aroma of grilled foods that immediately wakes the appetite drawing you to the menu board which then confuses the brain.
Their menu is quite extensive which features items such as grilled meats, pastas and burgers. With a closer look you will find a specialty menu that boasts dishes like ravioli and polenta. A variety of tastes can be satisfied with their menu which is also easy on the pocket. At the cashier's counter you will find your dessert case with at least three types of cakes my favourite being the strawberry daiquiri cheesecake, my advice is stay away from the red velvet cake. The cake tastes fine but the frosting, nowhere close to being the traditional cream cheese frosting, tastes like plastic. Abraham's also has milk shakes and chillers, all flavours taste luxurious as a milk shake should. Their grilled meats great tasting but texture needs work. Their red meats tend to be tough at times however all sides are perfectly made and consistent in taste. Their fried foods are not to my taste as it is cooked in advance and kept in a warmer so it loses the crisp texture that we look forward to from fried food. On a better note the sides warmer is replenished every 8-10 minutes making sure that they are always fresh.
On paying for your meal you have a perfect view of the line cooks grilling and sauteing and most of the times you'll have the pleasure of seeing their pyrotechnic show coming from their pans. Immediately you notice how well oiled of a machine this place is. There's almost never a dirty table or floor yet I've been to Abraham's more than a few times and not noticed bus boys.the bathroom is not one you would usually find in a dive such as this with its stylish and almost nightclub decor is always clean ans well stocked. Cooks and service staff are all decked in their tidy uniforms and wear the necessary garb in keeping with local food regulation laws.
The customers who are their to take away are out the door in under 15 mins. Maybe too well oiled as the staff is not unfriendly but more like robots. I'm willing to put that aside for everything else. Hardly ever a smile on the faces of any staff member, could be with the monotonous task they are entrusted with, there's not enough time to make friends. They call your number on over a speaker system which is clearest I've experienced, avoiding shouting and a pile up of meals ready to be picked up. The dessert and milk shake pick up needs help as the person handing you your meal is then shocked to see that you have ordered a Peanut Buttercup Shake and then has to walk to the other end of a very long counter to find someone to make it if they can't do it themselves. Now you're left in limbo trying to figure out if you should wait there or go the the cashier. That system definitely needs some rethinking.
I would recommend Abraham's as their food is worth the money. The service will not leave you in a worse mood than when you first entered and it's location is convenient
