Yalumba Theme Nights @ Le Meridien Dubai

Brunch Reviews | In Unspecified on January 16th, 2017
200-300 AED
Yalumba has been a staple of the dining scene in Dubai for well over a decade, and to some is credited with starting the trend of Dubai's Friday Bubbly Brunches. Now Revamped, refreshed and renewed for the latter stages of 2016 with reincarnations of their ever popular Friday Brunch, as well as a Saturday Family Brunch, a Thursday edition called "Bubbles & Vibes," Sunday Roast Night, Mediterranean Mondays and Seafood Tuesdays…all of which we have been fortunate enough to sample. THE FOOD We were absolutely delighted to see the range of seafood they have available, especially for a Tuesday night. The spread was equal to, if not surpassing that of most Friday Brunches! From lobsters to crabs, mussels, clams, calamari, and a terrific array of fresh whole fish on the outdoor grill, it seemed every variety of fish as well as method of cooking style from fried to grilled, steamed to sautéed and everything in between. We also noted the speed at which the busy chefs replenished the various stations, keeping a steady stream of hot, fresh seafood in circulation as quickly as it was vanishing from the grill onto plates. 01a96d431f06affcc9a050ae6f6962c79035d5ea1a 01a95d382846ac054ddfb58d53a48a67594991589c 01ee86af4bd72e580ac0e4604637a1e73d9e6c42b1 Processed with Snapseed. Aside from the Seafood Jambalaya, the uncomplicated freshness of seafood cooked on top of the naked grill flames and the perfect weather was the main attraction of the terrace, whereas in contrast, the interior was all about the varied and imaginative methods the chefs could think of to present their dishes. The range included a whole salt crusted salmon, fried sardines with a delicious sweet chilli dipping sauce, a whole fish baked in harra sauce, cold seafood salads, fish curries, and ofcourse a wide range of cold smoked haddock, sushi, sashimi and oysters. 01aa614374e2b1bbfe06eba2bb3955372969e2e665 014602166ec307e5977acd7ce8548d646693925500 0177056ba459984ab7c78b64a7903de819232ce3f1 01731c4eb7462cb784d890b9678979605970b031c9 In terms of desserts, although the main stars of the show are from the sea, luckily this vital stage of the meal does not follow the same trend. Across all of the theme nights, the outstandingly elaborate milk & white chocolate fountain sits proudly at centre stage, ably supported by items such as a never before seen (or tasted) Malteser cake. Also catering for the big kids among us are giant chocolate buttons, mouth watering Turkish delight, a live crepe station and a pic n mix the size of a candy store. A real sweet dream that gives true credence to the term "kid in a candy shop." 0112b84abebe93cd25775a7b40f3c1158073b0da7a Processed with Snapseed. 0170ec27b3c2c7eb1adb67c0c7037df92c7f389efe 017d9f9f63526affae9c7092eb1ec5c60ada61aacc OVERALL We were fans of the restaurant in its previous form, but we did feel the decor was somewhat dated, lagging far behind the various "newbies" on the scene. The new and improved Yalumba has such a modern, classy look and feel that gives the impression that the restaurant is much bigger and far less cluttered than it once seemed. Remarkably, having undergone a complete facelift, designed to incorporate contemporary concrete finishes and rustic vintage furniture akin to the various wine making regions of Australia, a sense of familiarity and history remains. The overall standard of food, service, drinks and value for money is what stands these particular theme nights in very good stead...
