REVIEW: Exclusive Valentine's Preview at Ruth's Chris Dubai
It’s only a month away and if you want to book a table at one of the best restaurants in the city, we’ve had a taster of exactly what will be on the menu come Feb 14 at Ruth’s Chris, and we have to say, it’s pretty darn good!
Focused on stimulating the romance factor, the menu is full of foods that are renowned for their aphrodisiacal properties. We begin the set menu with three starters to share. Oysters which are both fresh and substantial, deliciously plump sweet scallops, served sizzling with parsley pesto and the beef Carpaccio topped with winter truffles. We promise to go on divulging about the delights to be had but we have to stop. Right. Here. Mainly to wax lyrical about this dish that simply steals the show. We think you will be hard pushed to find a dish as moreish and decadently scrumptious, with perfectly sliced beef heavily embroidered with a generous truffle garnish. Swoon!
While there are three options for mains; the Norwegian salmon, filet of beef and stuffed chicken breast, we opt for the beef – it is a steakhouse after all, and when in Rome and all that. Despite being vastly different with our preferences, both plates are cooked to perfection, arriving at the table violently sizzling in truffle butter. Sides of velvety potato gratin prove to be a perfect companion and while the asparagus is a tad too al dente for our palates, the hollandaise is its saving grace - a smooth, rich and yummy affair!
After much umm-ing and aah-ing, we opt for the chocolate explosion – essentially a gooey chocolate brownie cake with chocolate sauce, caramel drizzle and vanilla ice cream. How can you possibly go wrong? It’s the perfect sweet ending to a Valentine’s meal with the added cutesy factor of being served in a heart shape. Aah!
In a nutshell, if you’re a carnivore, head to Ruth’s Chris this Valentine’s. It’s reasonably priced, the service is friendly and the food is pretty amazeballs. Additionally, if you’re more part of the brunch bunch, there are three special Valentine’s packages to choose from on Friday 13, ranging from Dhs325 to Dhs550. Ahlan! loves!
