MBF_DUBAI | COOK FOR ME SUNDAY , DINNER AT THE SHANGRI LA HOTEL RESTAURANT HOI AN & HOTEL TOUR
Taking a trip to the Shangri La Hotel is a must have for everyone, that's for sure. We might didn't spend the nights at the beautiful tower, but we had a fascinating dinner experience, that we would like to share today..
At the Hoi and we were spoiled with an Asian inspired dinner and a view that is simply priceless. The glamour and luxury lifestyle in Dubai was impressive. Each day was simply topped by something ever bigger, more golden and more unique. Also when it comes to dining at Shangri-La Hotel the standard is set very high.
Shangri-La Hotel, Dubai, offers a range of sophisticated dining options through our eight restaurants and bars to suit all tastes. The restaurants of the hotel have staff from the nations of each featured cuisine, ensuring a most authentic dining experience with a dash of Shangri-La’s renowned service.
Since I personally prefer to easy Asian, Esra and I have decided for "Colourful flavors of modern Vietnam" at the priced (Dubai's "Best Pan-Asian Restaurant", What's on Awards, 2014.) restaurant Hoi An.
At Hoi a we were warm welcomed by the charming team. It has been a lot of fun to get together with the team and of course to have a super lovely and delicious dinner together with Esra at the unique restaurant with a charming and authentic atmosphere.
The interior of the restaurant, so as some of the food ingredients were shipped from China to keep the original touch. Also the paper lamps are originally from China and arranged a romantic and relaxing atmosphere.
For the starter we have been surprised with a Chinese soup, combining fresh vegetables and tofu. The food in general has been very healthy and fresh. Beside the soup we also enjoyed some summer rolls. Since I'm really into this dish, the team prepared two different versions, both based on fresh herbals, which not only completed the dish but also have been rich in taste and conformed the high quality and the excellent standard of the kitchen.
Since China has also been occupied by France, the restaurant is also giving this charm through food and interior. Per example the recurrent has blue fences at the windows, a typically France inspired charmed, but also the lemon sorbet in-between starter and main course has been really refreshing and surprising for both of us.
Following we had again two various meals for the main dish. As mainly visible I'm a huge fan of tofu so the kitchen was spoiling around with a lot of the plan based protein delicatessen.
On top and much filled by all the delicious food each of us had an own dessert. I decided for fresh mango pure, while sera had some very rich and intensive chocolate conduce, topped with chocolate mousse and a raspberry sorbet on side.
We still enjoyed some mock tails and fresh juices at the restaurant, before we were invited for a visit at the Kandy bar. Sadly it has not been Monday that day. The Kandy bar offers every Monday a ladies night, with a "candy all you can eat" and other sweet surprises at the pool lasted bar area.
We would like to thank the whole team for the lovely invitation to the dinner and the beautiful afternoon we were able to spend at the hotel spa. We can truly recommend going out for a romantic dinner at one of the Shangri la hotel restraints in Dubai. This might also be a great escape for a lovely valentine's day, where all dream could come true.
