SEAFOOD MARKET, LE MERIDIEN DUBAI
This is as fresh as you can get. In fact, the underwater critters are still alive and swimming when you pick them out of one of the 18 seawater tanks.
It really is a market! Browse through endless displays of tiger prawns, scallops, calamari, fish, lobster, crabs and even fresh veggies to select your meal of choice and pay for it by weight.
The seafood has come a long way to please your taste buds. The gigantic Norwegian crabs are flown in every couple of days from their native waters, so make the most of this thoroughly international experience.
There are a variety of cooking methods and sautés. The staff have tried them all, so be sure to ask them for suggestions. The paunchy tiger prawns cooked in coconut and lemongrass topped with spicy curry sauce is the perfect dish to get started.
Be sure to pace yourself. Work your way through several smaller dishes instead of choosing just one main course. With such variety, picking a single item is simply too difficult!
