An Eloquent Christmas dinner at The Eloquent Elephant, Taj Dubai
Sugar and spice and everything nice that really summed up our dinner at The Eloquent Elephant but let me start at the beginning.
We were recently invited to a bloggers night to try out the restaurant's Christmas menu, we started the evening with an espresso martini and then moved unto our starters.
With an option of smoked salmon with toasted rye or foie gras ballotine with fig chutney, we chose the salmon which was a perfect choice (light yet filling) though I didn't hear any complaints from the foie grass eaters!
For the mains the option of Roast turkey roualde with the trimmings or Wild sea bass with lobster truffle mash was given, we took one of each.
Although a turkey at Christmas seems cliche it did not dis-appoint, the portion's too are quite generous. Tender meat and a huge portions of veggies made this dish very difficult to complete.
The contrast was the sea bass which was personally my favourite dish, I know this doesn't
Christmas-sy but I'm sure I heard a carol being sung when I bit into this! :)
The fish was cooked to perfection and the truffle although strong didn't over-power the dish in anyway. The cheesy butter sauce just enhanced this dish a bit further and made us want more.
The highlight of our meal? This!
The not so eloquent mushed mince pie Sundae was pretty darn elegant!
Layered to perfection this dish can easily be shared by two but its so delectable it makes you loose your Christmas spirit and hog it down alone!
The Eloquent Elephant will be serving their Christmas menu all through December with a few more options on there as well so do check them out, It's priced at AED 395.00 per person for the soft drinks options and AED 495.00 per person for the house beverage.
