Mint Leaf of London
If you’re feeling flush and craving some spice, look no further. The magnificent panoramic views of the Burj Khalifa from its floor to ceiling windows is sure to impress out-of-towners, complementing its elegant, high-end interior.
Prepare to be pleasantly surprised. The appointment of award-winning Chef Pradeep Khullar in the last year has introduced a combination of traditional spice blends with new cooking techniques and a spin on the norm to its previous a la carte offering.
Try the boneless duck seekh kebab with plum and chevre mousse. Veering away from the mutton and chicken that’s the norm for this dish, the duck and the rather unusual addition of the goat’s cheese adornment serves as the perfect vehicle to tantalise the taste buds with its elevated flavour profiles.
Don’t skip dessert! While you’ll most certainly find offerings of classic sweets such as rasmalai, opt for either the lotus mess with wild berries or their take on the Snickers bar, which marries ice cream with a crunchy peanut nougat, glazed with luxurious Valrhona chocolate.
Relax and enjoy the stunning surroundings. After your meal in the main restaurant, head to either the bar or the lounge for a digestif while enjoying a spot of live entertainment, or head to the al fresco terrace, where the twinkling lights of Sheikh Zayed Road in the distance make the perfect backdrop for a stunning selfie.
