Seafood Sundays and more at Millennium Plaza Hotel Dubai

No comments:
Millennium Plaza Hotel Dubai recently introduced Epicurean Nights. It's a journey of discovery of some of the finest cuisines from across the world.

Embarking on this epicurean journey, I was invited to try their Seafood Sundays. 

Metro! is the hotels all day dining restaurant located on the 5th floor. The floor to ceiling windows gives you sweeping views of the busy Sheikh Zayed Road and all its skyscrapers. It's bright green furnishings gave accents to the clean white wall finish.

The dinner service starts at 6:30 pm but the invitation I received says 7:30 pm. I decided to come half an hour early to be sure I can have a good look at the spread as well as take photos while everything is still intact but I guess the good stuff are not meant to last.

but there are far better things if you know where to look

the live cooking station was the highlight of the buffet. Freshest catch of the day in a bed of ice where you can plate your pick and the chef will cook it for you.

There was not a time that the station got vacant so I settled for nevertheless equally delicious and satisfying dishes on the spread

I started my dinner with some hearty seafood minestrone soup followed by some seafood ceviche uniquely served on a shell and different smoked fishes.

then there's my plate of everything else. I took small portions of each so I can have a taste. There's cheese sambousek, steamed fish fillets, steamed vegetables, mixed vegetables, prawns, grilled salmon with mint sauce, beef medallions, potatoes and beef kadhai.

Every single dish on this plate was delicious but the one that really stands out was the fish I got from the almost finished steamed hammour. No wonder it was the first to go but I wonder why it was not replenished during the service.

We're not so keen to queue at the live cooking station just because there was no chance. Every time we come to choose, there were so many people that beat us to it plus the main dishes on the spread was enough to satiate our seafood and meat cravings.

The husband indulged and dug in seafood literally.

I let the kids chose their food. Prince ate prawns and crab from the cold seafood station with some steamed rice while my daughter who ate very little these days watching her waistline had prawn tempura, beef medallions, and potatoes.

For dessert, we had some exotic rice pudding which I find very comforting because it is somewhat similar to one of our native sweets back home. Then my favorite sweet cheese rolls and some fresh fruits from this beautiful arrangements.

The service was exceptional. I was happy with our server, she speaks English fluently, she was pleasantly chatty, attentive and clears our table quickly; the chefs, knowledgeable of their dishes. We are also pleased to meet the Management that night and was able to thank them for having us.

Metro has different themed nights so make sure to check them out, chose your favorite foodie destination and have dinner with your friends and family

Gozo Garden - Thursday BBQ Nights with Phil Collins Tribute

Dubai got a lot of rain fall last week until Wednesday and thank goodness Thursday was a sunny spring day again. It was a pleasant Thursday night with stars gazing down to us, beautiful weather and superb atmosphere around Dubai.

We started our weekend right and sit down to a BBQ dinner al fresco at Gozo Garden at Millenium Airport Hotel with the company of good friends. We are back and this time was with a Phil Collins tribute, the last time I was here, it was for The Blues Brothers.

It was a fun filled evening which got even livelier when Andrew James takes center stage and started singing Phil Collins songs, here's one of the performances that I've recorded, oh dear I can dance into it - and yeah just like the song, this is another day in paradise.

The night was even more special since I finally get to meet the blogger behind, Angelo is now blogging in the sandpit. Also the ever gorgeous and fashionista - Rosell of Kero's Celebration was with us.

A big thank you to Mr. Ben Hipolito, Millenium Airport Hotel, and Gozo Garden for inviting us. Seems like Dubai pips have a lot to look forward to this coming May 2014 with Tom Jones and Lionel Richie in the lineup.

Come to Gozo Garden any time of the week, their themed nights will have you feeling prep up all the time.
