Sea-Me Restaurant, W Dubai

 

The W-Hotel has landed in Dubai and we went down to try the new seafood restaurant called Sea-Me. It is a buffet style restaurant with the biggest spread of seafood that I have ever seen! Oyster Bar, Lobsters on ice, Scallops galore and the most delectable seafood Paella! 

 

We began at the oyster bar with ceviche which is all served on a conveyor belt so it keeps coming! There is a pink coloured ceviche which was to die for, it was marinated in passion fruit juice and the combination was incredible, flavours I had never imagined together but they were perfect

I did try an oyster and the salsa they drizzle on is tasty but I am just not an oyster person, I don’t like the texture. There are some beautiful canapes in the fridge which were all delicious but my favourite were the scallops and salmon with caviar.

For mains we went to the cold food bar which had lobster, crab and various prawns. The king prawns and lobster with apple chunks were my favourite. It was all extremely fresh and chilled in ice. Then we went over to the hot food and tried the Paella and Lobster rice, the Lobster rice reminded me of one of my grandmas dishes, it was so comforting and homely. At the live cooking station I tried the fresh scallops, red mullet and red snapper, the snapper was under-seasoned and the red mullet was over cooked but the scallops were cooked to perfection.

The desserts were divine! The choux pastry puffs with chocolate were my favourite, they were like an explosion of happiness in your mouth and the ice cream station is fun as you can add your own toppings. The rest of the desserts weren’t amazing but that probably had something to do with the fact that I was bursting at the seams.

The buffet is priced at 295 and drinks are billed separately, I would 100% go back, it is hands down the best selection of seafood I have ever seen in Dubai and well worth your money!

Crab Tavern

DSC_0028Crab 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.

DSC_0012DSC_0018For 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.
