What's new on the UAE food scene?

If you love a local flavour, Phoenicia at JA Oasis Beach Tower Dubai is back and consulting chef Greg Malouf has pulled out all the stops. The new menu is designed as a 'Toast and Taste' discovery of cocktails and cuisine, with both food and beverage showcasing the famous flavours of Arabia, from zaater to rose to pomegranate and sumac. For Dh299 per couple, the pairing-tasting menu includes two starters, two main courses and a sharing dessert, with two beverages per course. Try the organic seabass Sayadeeya, Malouf's Battenjan or Malouf's signature dessert, the Flower Petal Pavlova. The menu is on offer from 6pm to 11pm daily.
There's no greater dim sum day than Friday. A lazy morning calls for a delicious sprawling lunch and Hakkasan Abu Dhabi is helping you out with its Friday Dim Sum afternoon from 12pm until 3.30pm. The lunch is priced at Dh98 for three baskets of Hakkasan's signature creations or Dh138 for five baskets. Dim sum means "touching the heart" in Cantonese and we've fallen for this offer.
