Crab Tavern just launched a new menu and I was SO excited to sample it. As I walked in I sensed a strong London vibe and the manager told me the concept was born there. It was casual with a really nice energy about it and the views were great.
We began with the Seafood and Crab Platter which was enormous! It had prawns, calamari, crab legs, claws and potted crab. When I saw it I knew it would be a really fun plate of food for us to eat, one that you just have to get stuck into and lots of dips and different things to try. It was absolutely delicious, the crab was fresh and cooked to perfection and I wrestled with my King Crab until only the shell remained. It was the best crab I have had in Dubai and if I went back that platter would definitely be what I ordered, everything was fresh, simple and delicious.
For mains we went for the soft shell crab burger and the fish and chips, the burger was too fishy for my liking but the fish and chips were golden, crispy and just like they should be, a taste of home.
Dessert time came and we couldn’t decide so they brought us a trio of desserts which were all unbelievable but the pecan tart was definitely the one!
If you are looking for some great, simple, fresh seafood and a fun night out, I would highly recommend Crab Tavern in the Media One Hotel.
