Acclaimed Australian-Lebanese chef Greg Malouf has brought his flair for Middle Eastern flavours to Phoenicia restaurant, with an exciting new dining concept.

In a first for Dubai, Phoenicia’s all-new Sahtein Toast & Taste pairs contemporary Arabian flavours with modern mixology to create a tantalising tasting menu.

For this exclusive food and drink experience, the Michelin-starred chef has crafted a series of mouthwatering mezze, which are expertly paired with arabesque-style cocktails and Lebanese wines.

Available from Thursday to Saturday night, the Sahtein Toast & Taste menu is priced at just Dhs299 per couple. It includes two starters, two main courses and a shared dessert, along with two drinks per course.

Chef Malouf’s mastery of Arabic ingredients and techniques is on show in starters such as silky hummus paired with a hibiscus and tequila spritz, housemade ma’hanie sausages with a rum and pomegranate cocktail, or Syrian-spiced yellow tail with a lemon and lychee creation.

Main courses include the organic seabass sayadeeya, spiced lamb kifta, or Malouf’s indulgent battenjan (eggplant casserole), all matched with top Lebanese wines.

To finish, share Malouf’s signature dessert, the flower petal pavlova, which works a treat with the Tin Tin digestif of brandy, sweet wine, sherry, citrus and fig.
