CELEBRATIONS AT AMAL ARMANI

In celebration of accessible dining in style,the Armani hotel Dubai had an event

“GOURMET STYLE 10/10 ”

a 10 day celebration of fine dining. We had celebrations of our own too,my husband’s  birthday!!!

We arrived at the restaurant and were welcomed with a welcome drink before we made our way to our table.

More than half the tables do not have the fantastic views of the dubai fountains in the indoor seating area but I do need to go back for their outdoor seating and signature menus in better weather. However we could walk out on the deck and see the gorgeous musical fountains, beneath the towering Burj.

So since it was too hot to be out in the first week of october we quickly went in for the feast.

This is a fusion of eastern and western flavours and presentation and though I thought it was good ,my 14yr old son would have preferred a choice here in the menu.

this was followed by the Desert “AMAL SAMPLER PLATTER ” with SAFFRON PHIRNI, COCONUT SEMIFREDO,GULAB JAMUN
