A taste of Arabia with a twist - Original-Fusion, Abu Dhabi
Notwithstanding the unreal price of the Ruinart, I opt for the Moet which is served by the glass. There is a very good selection of by-the-glass drinks, again at a good price.
After this, I have a dish that challenges me from a sustainability point of view. It is a dish that is very much part of local cuisine but one that has me in two minds. I console myself that it is not shark fin soup, so , I have it; Jamsheed, or shark. The braised shark is quite salty, but Chef has put some sweet elements that serve to balance it - avocado puree and onion crisps go a long way to neutralising that saltiness. However, this dish is much more than flavour. The shark lies on a square of deep fried, crunchy Japanese rice - the fusion aspect again. Decadent texture. A must try!
