Stuck for things to do this summer? Or maybe all your mates have finally returned from their summer holidays and you’re looking for a venue to catch up at. Step forward Wavehouse, the brilliant mega entertainment venue at Atlantis The Palm.

A one-stop-shop for an unforgettable afternoon of fun, Wavehouse brings together live music, gaming, bowling, drinking and dining, all overlooking a state-of-the-art wave machine. If that wasn’t enough to have you hailing a cab to Atlantis, maybe the restaurant’s firey new menu will? Where seven tear-jerking spicy dishes are available this August only.

Spice, spice baby

In celebration of summer Wavehouse has unveiled a new, limited-edition Heat Wave menu. On the menu, there’s seven sweat-inducing spicy dishes designed to test your taste buds to the extremes. Think you can take the heat? Assemble your foodie-loving mates because it’s time to see who’s really willing to put their spice-o-meter to the test.

Kicking things off, firestarter nachos are designed to be dunked in a habanero-spiked cheese sauce, or tender chicken wings coated in a finger-licking-if-you-dare habanero marinade. Main options include seriously smokin’ ribs with jerk spice rub; fiery chicken quesadilla with chipotle sour cream; and a flaming hot take on the classic cheeseburger.

Even the dessert menu has received a spicy spike, and the classic ice-cream trio has been turned on its head with scoops of wasabi, chili chocolate and ginger and cardamom flavoured ice cream on hand to end things on a sweet-yet-spicy note.

Dishes start from a wallet-friendly Dhs40, ranging up to Dhs125 for some of the meaty mains.

Keen to take on the challenge?

If anyone manages to beat the heat and finish one of the seven dishes, you’ll earn yourself a deserving free drink to cool you down and bring your tastebuds back to life.
