The UK based restaurant chain Sahara Grill renowned for serving the first halal steak in England, opened its first branch in Dubai, in The Mall on Jumeirah Beach Road.
I went last week to try their cuisine and I met Tye Razzak, the CEO of Sahara Grill.
He told me that opening in Dubai is a dream coming true and is an exciting leap for their business. Marking their presence in the fastest growing city in the Middle East and catering to its sophisticated cosmopolitan customers is a positive challenge they are eager to take on.
Their aim is to serve high quality traditional dishes with their own signature that appeal to foodies and are affordable for families.
Let me start with the appetizers!
Sahara Lamb Chops, New Zealand tender lamb chops marinated in Sahara Grill signature and flamed grill to your liking, slightly on the hot side but will leave you wanting more. It is a very spicy dish but I told them that I cannot eat spicy food, they made it 10% of the spices.
It was still spicy for me but it was flavorful and so tender that the spiciness didn’t stop me from eating it.
Sahara Wings, fresh tender wings in a spicy, hot and tangy sauce served with sour cream and chives.
As it was also spicy, my wife ate this one 🙂
She liked it…
Combining the skills of expert chefs with Fresh Grade A premium cuts of beef from Canada and lamb from New Zealand, locally procured fresh fish and chicken, delicious sauces with consistency in quality all in very affordable prices in a fine dining atmosphere; earned Sahara Grill the kind of reputation that paved the way to three different branches in England with a clientele coming from all over the United Kingdom, and a one hour wait for a table.
Now, let’s move to the main course!
Rib-Eye Steak (220-260g), hand cut Canadian prime Angus beef marinated in Sahara spices and flame-grilled to your liking, served with caramelized onions, a side order of your choice and picante gravy.
I requested them to make me the Rib-Eye non spicy at all and they have this option in their menu.
Wow, the Canadian Rib-Eye is so tender and mouthwatering!
I highly recommend you to try it, you will thank me for that.
Cajun Chicken Steak marinated in Cajun spices and flame-grilled to order.
My wife took that dish and to my surprise it was spicy, very tender chicken steak with an amazing taste.
The dessert menu includes a variety of mouth-watering Italian delicacies, all flown from Italy, and is definitely one to satisfy your sweet-tooth .
I tried the cheese cake and it was exquisite!
The Tiramisu was enjoyable!
