When your food is appetizing the drinks delectable, the ambiance enchanting and your companion entertaining, you look up to the sky and thank your stars. Luckily, we did just that, as we were sitting outdoors on a clear sky.
The Bā restuarant at the Fairmont, The Palm Jumeirah can pride itself in mostly all areas of fine dining. A snazzy looking restaurant, great outdoor seating with a (distant) view of the Atlantis, The Palm, good food and good service.
As you can see, the place is good looking. There is something about dining in incandescent lighting. It just spells, ‘good times ahead’ be it food or just drinks.
As weprepared to have our meal, oh wait I forgot to tell you about how long it took us to get there. Directionally challenged, I kept making the wrong u-turn to get to the hotel. We were so delayed that the receptionist who answered the phone had to remind me twice that that last order is at 1130 am. Alas! we got there and we were famished.
As we sat down to begin our meal, my companion, being a strict vegetarian that she is, ordered her very specific items off the menu, which were surprisingly accommodated. We are talking things like, ‘pure vegetable oil and no traces of egg in anything.’ Mind you, we are in a ‘Asian’ restaurant here, non-vegetable oil is a part of practically every item in the menu. But, the waitress kindly obliged.
The veg dimsum and the lobster dim sum are a must order.
So, I can write a separate post on the Tofu with the Chinese cabbage dish that we had. The fact that I said that should make you order it? Great! My job here is done. So, go ahead and order it please folks. It was yum.
By the time we finished our starters, we were stuffed, as with most of my eating outings, but I dared to order the Lobster 100gm, cut to 20 gms! My companion ordered he Pine Mushroom with the Hakka Noodles. Both our dishes were quite satisfying.
So, I do recommend this place for some good Asian food, although I should mention that it is not cheap. A meal for two with starters, drinks, and mains is approximately AED 900.
