Taste Buds

Last weekend we got our passports out and headed over to Le Meridien Dubai (the one near the airport), living in new Dubai means I very rarely head over Garhoud Bridge, in all fairness we have everything on our doorsteps here, but we don't have M's Seafood Bistro ...

M's Seafood Bistro only opened last month in the location that some of you might remember as Cafe Chic at Le Meridien.  The weather that day was sunny which makes a change at the moment, so we decided to dine inside.  The restaurant is small and tastefully decorated though I have to say I don't quite get the branding of the dated supermodel and the fish, however you don't judge a restaurant on its decor you judge it on the food which I have to say was really good. I did however absolutely adore the plates on all the tables, especially the ones that had the menu's on them.  You can find some photographs here.

As it was lunchtime we didn't opt for starters and went straight onto mains, though Chef did bring us a complimentary seafood chowder which was absolutely delicious, Mitten wasn't impressed (sorry Chef it appears 7 year olds and seafood don't mix). We were also presented with beautiful fresh bread and pressed butter, Mitten loved the salt bread.

For my main course I chose the Sea Bream with Crushed Potatoes and Anchovy Juice whilst my husband opted for the Marinated Black Cod Loin, Brandade with Light Herb Dressing.  Mitten had the childrens Beef Burger which whilst it was on the children's menu it was more suited to a teenager than a 7 year old, I have to say it looked fabulous though, with lovely big chips!!   My Sea Bream was perfect, beautifully cooked and presented as was the Black Cod Loin, I have posted some pictures here.

In true GA fashion we had to try the Creme Brulee, very very good but Al Maha Desert Resort and Spa are still the current title holders of Best Creme Brulee in the UAE.  We had a great time at M's and I would like to thank all the staff who were so attentive, the Chef who made our dining experience special and most of all Le Meridien Dubai for inviting us along for lunch in the first place. Well done team Le Meridien Dubai.
