Any development soon after its existence in UAE suddenly hypes & becomes a popular hub for shoppers & foodies. The Sustainable City situated on Al Qudra Road is also home to many eateries.
Last Friday, our visit to The Sustainable City made our day, we spent our lunch hours at one of the best seafood spots in UAE.
You need to try Hook & Cook for its most delectable seafood dishes, the skillful ideas & cooking techniques with emalgamation of flavors have been done in different recipes which has proved to be so successful & a hit amongst the myriad of customers. The expert behind the kitchen, the restaurant owner herself has made it possible to bring the most exceptional menu to satisfy the customers with multiple cultures in the region.
We were warmly welcomed and explained about the concept used in their recipes. At Hook & Cook, they create recipes by mixing different spices but at the same time keeping the flavors intact.
If you are looking for unique seafood dishes & best value for money, I would recommend to try their Salmon Lasagne, Fish Biryani , Crab Cakes , Cajun Garlic Shrimps & a lot more.
Below is the description of the dishes which all we tried.
The restaurant has been done with an interesting traditional décor. Keeping in mind the history of UAE which relates very much with fishing. The wooden boats and fishing concepts have been added in décor.
Mojitos: We really needed those refreshing mojitos on a warm sunny day , but it was a bit more interesting.
Sangria ……. this clear drink , sangria syrup was filled in with chopped fresh fruits, a dash of cinnamon & ginger ale.
Blue Mojito ….. mix of blue curacao ( non – alcoholic), lemon, mint leaves, lime soda.
Rocca Salad …. I enjoyed the combinations , this light & healthy bowl consists of rocca leaves, tomatoes, mushrooms, walnut, shaved parmesan in vinaigrette.
Hook & Cook Sampler ….. you can have any three starters of your choice in one platter along with celery, carrots & dipping sauces.
We had Crab cakes, Fish Croquettes & Bang Bang Shrimps.
Crab Cakes taste amazing & make it more indulgent when you dip it in tartar sauce.
Fish Croquettes …. As I took a bite, it reminds me of Indian spices, so if you are a fan of Indian flavor you will like it.
Bang Bang Shrimps …. Some what similar to dynamite shrimps, crispy battered shrimps in a very delicious sauce. Great taste!
Mains: Seafood Fresh off the Hook
Salmon Lasagne …. Again salmon comes in a unique form, creamy lasagne with dill sauce, every bite is so delightful with flaky salmon layered in creamy lasagne.
Grilled Cajun & Garlic Shrimps …… Cajun spiced skewerd shrimps served with garlic butter sauce. All thumbs up, enjoyed the soft juicy skewers, do ask for this dish from the menu.
Fish Biryani … not at all like a typical biryani , but very delicious & mildly flavored rice and soft fish cubes.
Warm Apple Pie ….. cut open the warm , sweet & slightly sour very delightful apple pie, combine with the scoop of ice cream and voila!
Sticky Date Pudding with ice- cream ……. At such reasonable rates you get to try such mind -blowing desserts, yes, that’s true date pudding is at the top.
I will highly recommend all the above spread served to us, as I did not feel like getting my hands off from any of these items.
