A pub garden that’s had an upscale makeover, an unlicensed BBQ and grill and Singaporean seafood arrives in Al Seef…
And if you’re looking for somewhere to head to this weekend, we’ve rounded up three spots we reckon you won’t want to miss out on. A Singaporean seafood restaurant with over sixty years experience has opened in Al Seef, and so has a new BBQ fire pit restaurant in Jumeirah, and Girder’s Garden has had a makeover, and there’s some top notch nosh on the brand new menu
Here are three new restaurants to dine at this weekend.
Brand new: Kim’s Singapore Seafood
The Singaporean stalwart Kim’s Palace has opened in Dubai’s Al Seef. Called Kim’s Singapore Seafood in Dubai, it promises authentic dishes such as Singapore Chili Crab, Steamed Shell Scallops with Garlic and Black Pepper Lobster. Decked out with colourful murals and botanical walls, the 166-seater restaurant mixes traditional Singaporean dishes with some new additions adapted to regional tastes.
Kim’s Singapore Seafood, Al Seef, Dubai Creek, Sat to Tues 10am to 12am, Weds to Fri 10am to 3am . Tel: (04) 370 8288. Facebook.com/Kimsdxb
One for the meat lovers: Atmosfire
AtmosFire can be found on Jumeirah Beach Road opposite Sega World, and promises to serve up ‘a carnivore’s paradise’ for its guests. The barbecue and open fire pit grill style restaurant is centered around a floor-to-ceiling brick brazier which takes pride of place in the centre of the restaurant. On the menu, you can either go a la carte, or select ‘From The Pit’ menu, where you’ll be able to pick a starter, and selection of meat cuts for mains. It’s a menu designed to be shared, and premium cuts of meat are served in small, shareable portions alongside a collection of sauces and sides.
AtmosFire, Jumeirah Beach Road, opposite Sega World, Jumeirah, daily 5pm to 12am. Tel: 056 665 2226. Facebook.com/Atmosfirebarbequepit
Recently refurbished: Girders Garden
Girder’s Garden has gone undercover, so you don’t have to sweat it out while you watch the sport from their AC tent. It’s still got the super sized screen for catching the games, but plush new furnishings have replaced the old pub style fit out, making it more of a posh gastropub. There’s a new menu too, and it’s brimming with pub classics such as fish and chips and burgers, but also has more gastro dishes and sharing plates, such as a steamed mussel pot and smoked beef brisket. There’s a brand new brunch too – where guests can enjoy sharing dishes brought to the table as well as pimp their drink from an interactive drinks station.
Girder’s Garden, JA Ocean View Hotel, The Walk, Dubai Marina, Sun to Thurs 4pm to 1am, Fri and Sat 12pm to 1am. Tel: (056) 216 5057. Facebook.com/GirdersTheWalk
