Say Hello to Agnello

One sunny afternoon, while my colleague and I had some time to grab lunch, we explored Pappagallo, a gem of a restaurant at Le Meridien. I decided to order something that would keep me stuffed for a good 3- 4 hours; something meaty, heavy and delicious. Agnello sounded just right! It’s enticing appearance enchanted me…

Rucolaaaa!!!

Salads are a big NO to me, especially when I’m out with friends for a weekend celebration. The plate you see above is certainly not what I ordered. It’s one of my friends who ordered this since he recently joined a gym, which of course is something I’ve been thinking for a long time to…

Flavorful Potato Pillows w/ Braised Beef Osso Buco Ragu

My love for potatoes is never-ending and feasting on them in the form of little potato pillows is comforting to my palate. The slowly braised beef marrowbone absorbing the flavours from the vegetables, herbs and the wine is rewarding on a weekday dinner. The freshly grated Parmesan adds depth to the dish without overpowering the…

Millefoglie

Light flaky puff pastry layered with vanilla custard is the ideal way to end a perfect date night. With every bite I could taste the soft velvety vanilla custard exploding in my mouth as felt the freshness of the berries; the base layer of the pastry absorbing the delicious strawberry syrup had me gobble it…

Salmon off the hook

I don’t know where to start… The fresh parsley and basil herbed tomato concasse, the garlicky lemony olive tapenade or the juicy flakey perfectly baked Salmon and vegetables, coz all of it was YUMMYLICIOUS! It’s like everything on my plate complimented each other and also tasted delicious on its own. The Salmon was dispersing fragrance…

A Sticky Toffee Joy!

It was moist and warm, the moment I slid my spoon to scoop my first ever mouthful. The spoon was coated with gooey caramel as the steam faintly escaped releasing a rich buttery and sweet fragrance to bewitch anyone close by. The freshness of the berries nestled on top, the crumbles of walnut intensified the…

Chicken wings with Angry Sauce; not for the faint-hearted!

Was the first time I tried chicken wings with Korean spiced sauce and honestly, it brought tears to my eyes. I took the portion of 10pcs and not a single wing was spared; not even a tiny bit of meat on its bones. The spicy tangy with a tinge of sweetness sauce was scrumptious and…

C² Magic

I arrived at Le Meridien Abu Dhabi on a Saturday morning, welcomed by this cheerful & chic atmosphere. As I walked inside, a counter of delightful cakes and pastries caught my eyes and the fragrance of freshly brewed coffee pulled me towards Al Finjan Café magically. So obviously I was boring as usual and just ordered a…

Cotoletta Alla Meridien

Crunchy, meaty and always satisfying! I’m glad that I saw the waiter serve this dish on a table next to me, which made me decide to order it without giving it a second thought. Had my belly hammering inside me! I knew exactly what I wanted and placed my order as soon as the waiter…

Blast of Indian Spices!

A noticeable vibrant colour, super popular chicken tikka masala with a plethora of spices and flavours that perfectly meld together on your tongue accompanied so well by a crispy poppadum which never fails to enhance the experience of gobbling it down with steamed rice while watching an intense sport at NRG.
