This modern Emirati eatery is hosting a special nine-course feast…

Fa’e Café in Abu Dhabi is a smart Arabian diner, with sleek, chic interiors and a menu that’s built up a reputation for outstanding breakfasts and some pretty artistic fusion food.

As part of Abu Dhabi Culinary Season they’ve announced a special edition Chef’s Table meal featuring nine courses, and it’s available for just Dhs350.

That works out to less than Dhs39 per course. See, who said journalists can’t do maths?

The menu is a culinary collaboration between the cafe’s Head Chef — Khaled Alsaadi, Chef Greg Malouf, and Chef Bethany Kehdy. But you’ll have to be quick if you want to experience this epic feast, it’s only available between December 10 and 12, with limited spaces.

Speaking about the news, Chef Khaled said: “Having the incredible Chef Bethany Kehdy and Chef Greg Malouf host this evening with me at my concept, Fa’e Café is a real honour,”

“We have worked with eachother closely over the past few months to create a menu which truly reflects Abu Dhabi Culinary Season’s A Journey Through The Senses campaign, and provide an evening we think diners are going to remember for a long time.”

On cloud nine

The dishes from the mind of Chef Khaled include a pumpkin soup with cumin brioche, local cheese, tomato pearls, mint & arugula salad, turmeric tapioca sable; hamour with dried lime curry, root vegetable crisps, and a preserved lemon gel; and saffron and cardamom curd with orange blossom granite.
