WEST TO WEST KITCHEN Urban Retreat, Yas Mall
New booth offering Caribbean cuisine - I first heard about it evesdropping on a conversation in the Apple Store 😅 and have been determined to try it ever since! If like me your experience of Caribbean cuisine is limited to Reggae Reggae sauce, then you’re in for a treat! Extremely helpful staff who took time to explain the different dishes, and offered options like putting the hot pepper sauce on the side 🌶 😅 He even came over to tell me I was eating it wrong and should pour the stew over the rice to get the best out of the dish 😂
I opted for the Groundnut Stew (a beautifully tender piece of marinated chicken, covered in a deliciously thick peanutty sauce), served with a juicy fresh salad and perfectly cooked sticky rice. All served on bamboo plates. It was unexpectedly good, and I’d definitely try some of the other dishes next time. 50AED for chicken, rice, salad and a drink.
