My dear readers,
Last Wednesday evening, after a stressful day at work, I decided to go with my friend to The Scene by Simon Rimmer to relax and forget about the stressful day.
The Scene is the ultimate Gastro pub experience in Dubai Marina located at Pier 7.
The Scene has a focus on proper British pub food that is authentic, seasonal and nostalgic.
Encompassing an indoor restaurant, open plan bar area hosting their resident DJ and large terrace overlooking Dubai’s iconic Marina.
The Scene is a kitsch and vibrant British gastro pub producing award winning food and drink from 8am till late every day.
The Scene is headed up by UK chef and TV personality Simon Rimmer.
So now, I will tell you about my experience.
As I was driving, I took the Summer Mocktail and my friend took a beer.
The waitress recommended us to order the Paprika Squid Chili & Lemon Aioli and I thanked her for her choice.
The squid were soft and so tender from inside and crunchy from outside, the perfect fried squid!
The BBQ Chicken Wings with Blue Cheese Mayo were nice.
I was so happy to see in their menu the Veal Scotch Egg with HP Sauce because I enjoy it so much.
The veal was so flavorful, I love the taste of the meat as they used very good choice of spices and what I loved also is the soft yolk, yummy!
The Cod & Salmon Fish Cake with Tartar Sauce were nice but I had the feeling that it was a potato ball, probably because the fish was mixed with potatoes.
The green salad on the side of the plate had an amazing dressing.
Again here the waitress recommended us to choose the Roast Beef Fillet, Truffle Mash, Stilton with Red Wine Sauce.
We order the fillet to be medium cook.
The fillet was very tender and the red wine sauce on top of it was divine.
The mash was nice but I didn’t taste the truffle flavor in it, maybe because I was eating it with the red wine sauce 🙂
I highly recommend you to order the USDA Rib Eye 300 Steak with Proper Chips and Bearnaise.
Also cooked medium as we requested, it was so tender and so mouthwatering.
We enjoyed it so much!
A very good cut of meat for meat lovers!
Dessert is always my favorite part of a meal and I usually always order something with chocolate but today I decided to change and order something different!
I chose the Honeycomb Cheesecake with Blackberry Compote and Sorbet.
The cheese cake was heavenly taste!
And I would say that it is a must try dessert when you visit The Scene…
The Glazed Lemon Tart with Hazelnut Ice-cream is done in a similar style as a cheese cake.
When you see it served with a hazelnut ice-cream, you may say wow how are they combined together!
Actually, I loved this combination, the lemon tart was so yummy and adding to it the hazelnut ice-cream was a fusion in taste and flavors 🙂
You should visit The Scene by Simon Rimmer, Pier 7, enjoy the view on the Marina, have a drink, chill with your friends and have a nice bite or meal!
