I was also much excited to see the Levantine kitchen, couldn’t resist the hot & cold mezzes & some Arabic food.
Moreover, ‘Asian’ is going to serve you Noodles & other favorite Chinese dishes from their menu.
To start your delicious culinary journey go through the ‘Greenery’ menu & have fresh bites of fresh green & mixed salads.
We took a whole round of the extensive area, feels like walking in a Food Carnival with enormous food stalls.
Total Food Indulgence!!
And moreover, the most important aspect of dining is its ambiance, here you can enjoy your meals with great view of Dubai Fountains & Downtown, specially during evening hours. Outdoor seating is also going to be perfect in coming days & this interesting restaurant concept is going to be a promising delight.
Families can also dine in private seating areas designed within the restaurant. We got our table just by the fountain view and kept enjoying the dancing fountains.
Big clear windows which are one my favourite in interior décor , offers a well lit restaurant atmosphere.
We were warmly greeted by the most welcoming staff. Our welcome drink was Blue Ocean.
From ‘Greenery’ section we had the Quinoa Salad.
Before our food order arrives we got to try a number of dishes which the staff continued to serve us generously throughout the evening.
Some of those which we had were the mouth melting Sushi bites, Dumplings, Beef Sliders & crunchy Chicken Sliders. Beef Pepperoni Pizza was perfect too. Loved the flavorful bites of Stuffed Vine Leaves also.
But the irresistible aromatic atmosphere forced us to order some food of our choice as well.
Sushi & Shrimp Tempura Roll with avocado & spicy mayo.
Afghani styled specially marinated Chicken Skewers served with chutney & Yogurt , you keep asking for it. It also goes best with freshly baked Afghani Tandoori Naan.
Salmon Wild ( Scotland wild) very flaky and tasteful steak with veggies & Lemon Hollandaise & Citrus Chilli Vinaigrette.
Tenderloin (US Prime Corn-Fed) ……. Do try this from their meat menu, like all other dishes it is truly indulging as well.
Desserts: Single visit is not enough for this Food Hall. We were stuffed eating our meals but how could the desserts be missed?
The gorgeous selection of desserts include many flavors in milk cake, great variety in cakes, Honey / Cheese cakes, tarts, sorbets, ice-creams etc.
The most appealing on the menu was their colorful Ice-Cream Pallete. An assortment of ice-creams stuffed in cones were delicately arranged upside down on a pallete. Enjoyed the varied flavors in a platter. It is actually a set of six cones, but we asked for three. Our flavors were Strawberry, Chocolate & Vanilla.
Milk Cake, I wanted to soak into the ultimate, soft, spongy my all time favorite Milk Cake. I had the Vanilla Milk Cake. Some desserts are truly unforgettable, Vanilla Milk Cake is one of them. Do try it here!
