With the constantly evolving Food scene in Dubai, restaurant owners are coming up with new and innovative ideas to woo their customers be it with food, entertainment, ambience or just the overall experience. One such restaurant which has seen Dubai grow and at the same time kept up with the times is Blue Elephant in Al Bustan Rotana. This chain of hotels and restaurants has come a long way and time and time again has left an exceptional mark in Dubai’s hospitality scene.
My Thursday evening was spent at The Blue Elephant sampling their timeless authentic Thai dishes. Chef Chairat had prepared some of their very popular dishes from his home country. The food looked and tasted colourful and I’m happy to see the use of many vegetables to come up with a healthy and enticing menu.
Even though I could sample a mix of Japanese and Thai cuisines from the Mega Night which combines best dishes from both the restaurants we tried to stick to A La Carte for the appetizers and mains were a mix of the elaborate buffet spread.
Our table was full of exciting dishes like:-
*Som Tam – If any of you are even slightly familiar with Thai food you might be knowing this Papaya Salad’s popularity. It has sharp flavours and the spice level which is why thai food is known for.
*Satay Chicken – Another juicy chicken which would be loved by adults as well as kids.
*Spicy Prawn Salad and Chicken Salad – Even though I am not a fan of salads but these two were mellow and didn’t come across dry which made the dish lush.
*Grilled Chicken – The reason I would go too Blue Elephant again would be for this dish. My absolute favorite since the skin is tender and texture which you could instantly fall in love with.
Apart from this I took a few nibbles from the Buffet section too. This place is a heaven for Sushi and Sashmi lovers, don’t miss it. The Green Chicken Curry with Pad Thai will be delightful for your tastebuds and lastly don’t forget to bulge on some Tempura even though I would give it a miss since it fills your tummy but a bite would be appreciated.
And finally coming to the Desserts, I saw a huge crowd going for the Green Tea Chocolate Fountain and kids stuffing their face with a range of pastries and candies. So if you are even for a minute thinking which place you should dine, I would without a second thought suggest The Blue Elephant or their theme night on Tuesday and Thursday’s which would definitely leave you impressed.
