We tried a lot of chicken dishes, since I'm not really one for eating duck which was the other main meat on the menu for Saturday. The Chicken Pad Thai from The Asian Project was really good and full of flavour. We also had the Chicken Baidi Roti, a folded flatbread filled with chicken, red onion, mint leaves and homemade chutneys - though we skipped on the egg and I'm glad we did. There was a lot of different flavours and a strong mint taste which complimented the chicken and it was a nice alternative to the shawarma from Papa Ganoush we tried which was in quite a thick flatbread. The Baidi Roti was more like a light flatbread and if we hadn't been so full from all the other food, I would've definitely finished the plate!
A great afternoon out and the weather couldn't have been better. As I wasn't driving I even opted for a Date Honey Julep from Dubai; a mix of mint leaves, date honey and lemon juice. Shaken with whiskey and apple juice, served over ice. It was very refreshing!
Look out for Emirates bringing #HelloEast to a city near you, it's a great way to experience Eastern culture and try some new food. They've also got a really exciting competition you can enter to win tickets to fly to an Eastern destination of your choice!
