Bean there Bistro a small contemporary chunk of Millennium Airport Hotel which lies prominently besides the hotel & is the latest addition to Abela & Co’s retail portfolio, which already includes several international and home grown brands. The restaurant is a fine/casual dining located in the new wing of Millennium Airport Hotel, one of Dubai’s most iconic and recognized landmarks.
I was invited for the tasting session. Totally inspired by the exquisite interior setting, mood lifting ambiance for everyone where you will get to see wooden walls, on the other hand fresh green plantation is done on one wall, anyone with an obsession of books, paintings , indoor greenery, wooden interior….. all you will find in this one interesting place . The creative mind behind this stunning earth tone finish and décor is Hiba Zarour- Creative Director – H&H Investment & Development.
Outside seating is so good as well, specially if the weather is favorable, and we were lucky on that day to have a comfortable weather as the days are getting pleasant ahead.With this alfresco dining and Shisha area, you can sit and enjoy the atmosphere, company and the exceptional service till the early hours of the morning.
The menu offers a wide variety to choose from – ranging from breakfast, gourmet sandwiches, exotic salads, and pastas, small platters, tantalizing main courses, hot and cold beverages and mouthwatering desserts. The kitchen, which is the engine room of their service, is a reflection of the mastery of the experienced team of chefs, who are well equipped and ready to serve its patrons.
We had our drinks and ordered the starters.
1. Watermelon juice
2. Cocktail Juice
1.Bacon Wrapped Dates …… Just as its different name , so is the taste , this unusual combination of bacon slices with dates, almonds and blue cheese together in a bite was amazing. Although I don’t like blue cheese much but here I enjoyed eating the four flavors in one bite.
2.Potato Wedges …. Enjoyed eating fresh wedges with the special chilli sauce.
1.Crispy Half Chicken …. So enough in portion served on a bed of garlic mashed potatoes and some mixed stewed vegetables alongside , I enjoyed till my last bite, chicken is well flavored , so soft while retaining its natural moistness from inside.
2.Grilled Sampler ……… this sumptuous platter of mixed grills had some very delicious grilled pieces like a crispy tasty lamb chop , shish kebab, grilled chicken skewer( shish taouk) all served on flat bread ( chappati)alongwith grilled tomato and French fries.
Red Velvet Cake ……. They have a good dessert variety in the menu, but since the mains and starters had already filled our stomachs too much, we decided to opt for the gorgeous Red Velvet cake which had layers of cream cheese , so mouth melting and must try!
