I was invited at The Cavendish at the Bonnington Hotel in Jumeirah Lakes Towers, Cluster J to try their new Italian Menu: Taste of Italy.
It is the perfect venue for a romantic dinner.
We were warmly welcomed by the friendly Operation Manager Mrs. Annabelle Thiebaut.
I asked her to recommend me a main course and I thank her for her great choice.
To start, we were offered a mushroom soup with a slice of garlic bread.
A delicacy, it has an amazing flavor, but I will not tell you the ingredient, I prefer that you try it and try to guess it yourselves.
Heirloom Tomato & Burrata Cheese: Marinated wedges of heirloom tomatoes, oregano, cracked black pepper, rock salt, torn Burrata cheese & extra virgin olive oil.
I recommend this salad for cheese lovers, if you haven’t tasted yet Burrata cheese then you are missing a lot.
The fresh melting Burrata on a bed of heirloom tomatoes is just Divine!
Pan Seared Pork Belly: picked white crab, green apple sticks, potato fondant, fennel 2 ways, herb & tomato jus.
This dish was recommended to me by Mrs. Annabelle. Thank you very much for doing so.
What a dish! Wow, this is what I like…
Have you checked all the ingredients, they look so special and this is what I like, special original and new!
It was mouthwatering, you have to try it if you eat pork.
This is the Chicken Milanaise, golden crumbed chicken breast, rosemary, garlic and parmesan potatoes, mixed green, onion, cherry tomato salad & lemon vinaigrette.
The chicken was very tender however for me it missed a bit of flavor, I think that the chicken should be marinated in a sauce or with some spices prior of putting in the breadcrumbs on it and maybe also serve with it a sauce on the side.
The salad was flavorful!
300g Char Grilled Sirloin: breaded garlic mushrooms, overnight tomato, onion rings & fat chips, Café de Paris Butter or red wine jus (contains alcohol).
Look at the picture, it speaks of itself.
It was a very tender sirloin with delectable taste. Meat lovers this is your dish!
This lemon sorbet was one of the best ever I have eaten till now.
Can you believe that the below is a Tiramisu?
Originally presented, it contains finger biscuits, mascarpone, whipped cream, Tia Maria & coffee sauce (contains alcohol).
This is the famous Cioccolatissimo, warm chocolate fondant and vanilla ice cream.
The hot melting chocolate with the vanilla ice cream was heavenly!
