Last night we ventured to Li Jiang at the Ritz Carlton for dinner as we have friends visiting from the States.
I booked this place specifically because: ✔️ of its proximity to the Grand Mosque (as we went there around 5pm) ✔️ it has views of the Mosque
We ordered the following dishes to share (all mains came with a bowl of rice):
🍤 Wasabi Prawns w/ Avocado, mango salsa (75AED) 🥩 Rendang Wagyu Short Rib w/ broccoli (310AED) 🐟 Honey Glazed Chilean Sea Bass w/ Asparagus, mayonnaise (260AED) 🦞 Lobster Tail - Singapore style (240AED) 🥘 Wok Fried Lamb Szechuan Style (125AED) 🥭 Mango Sticky Rice w/ CCoconut ice cream (45AED)
We also ordered a couple of cocktails: 🍹 7 Seven cocktail (served in a teapot!) 🍹 can’t remember the name - had Sencha in it
Overall the food was actually great. I was pleasantly surprised as my Asian food expectations are annoyingly high. It’s not super authentically Asian but it was tasty and they weren’t stingey with their meat portions (especially lobster). We did not leave hungry.
This is a great place if you want views of the mosque while dining.
🥟 Note: they *do not* have the Unlimited Dim Sum night on Monday’s anymore (it’s still on their website). It is now unlimited Sushi night for 140AED.
