Le Royal Meridien.
So Market Kitchen has an iftaar set menu, quite similar in concept to their Friday table brunch-which is always a winner.
Except they have a guest chef for the month of Ramadhan 'Suzanne Husseini' (lovely lady who made sure we were cared for throughout the meal, and took our feedback very positively) who brings Arabic/Lebanese cuisine with a twist to the table.
This is a long meal with many courses. You will leave filled to the brim, move slowly to your car and will probably skip your next meal but be oh so satisfied. 😊
The highlights were the dill/zataar scones with homemade pistachio and zataar encrusted labneh (OMG!!! Two days later and we're all still talking about them). We asked for our bread basket to be replaced with just a mountain of the scones-they were that good!
The main of Lemony garlic chicken, with yogurt and crispy fried bread garnish was also delectable.
And lastly the rice pudding with date compote pales all other rice puddings I've ever tasted...ever!!! Absolute show stopper-whenever else would the humble rice pudding be a showstopper? And if you're still not convinced: we had a dessert disliker (I know, I know, how is that even possible??) on the table with us and she couldn't stop eating it.
Market kitchen's service is always impeccable, great ambience & atmosphere. Lots of yummy mocktails are included.
The price is Dhs. 200++ per head. The BB 20% off discount knocks of the tax so we were left paying Dhs 200-yaeh! 😊
The menu changes weekly and Suzanne Husseini will be here till the end of Ramadhan. And if anyone is going, can you please bring me back some scones 😂🙏🏼....no like seriously 😳
