A welcome invite from my friend G saw myself and the squad hit up Dusty’s on a Wednesday evening. The electic decor and uber cool vibes were the first to catch my attention.The low level tables along the wall are cosy and romantic with a water feature view to add to the ambiance. I could of sworn the DJ was playing my iPod at one stage with a whole heap of 90’s tunes from hip hop to RnB and even the legendary Michael Jackson was thrown into the mix. The only thing missing is a dance floor, which resulted in me doing karaoke and chair dancing much to my friends amusement.The Wednesday night brunch deal (from 6-10pm) see’s you get an unlimited amount of small plates (from a choice of 11) as well as unlimited beverages for just 200AED. Such a steal! The highlight for me being the crunchy lobster tacos loaded with guacamole.
The food service although perhaps slow at times, which could be due to multiple orders at a time, was worth the wait with the small plates we had as starters impressing our taste buds.
As we are here for a tasting evening we are allowed to sample the main menu which sees us ordering two pastas, a mild linguine amatriciana and a mushroom penne which could of had a bit more creamy sauce, extremely flavorful and tender Korean spiced lamb chops, the melt-in-your-mouth black cod with a green chili & mango salsa with a side of crunchy truffle fries.
The beverages on offer include house wines, of which i sampled the rose which was sweet on my palette. The bottled beer included was peroni.We’re pretty stuffed come dessert time so only order the one to share, a round french toast topped with vanilla ice cream and a not so generous serving of caramel sauce.To our surprise they also bought us the candy station. A chocolate fondue set complete with cake pops, macarons, churros, fruit & candy. As I found the french toast to be a little dry, dipping into the fondue was the perfect solution!Not only could I not stop chair dancing the entire evening, my taste buds were also dancing with delight. They also have an outdoor area with a water feature which they use for ladies night.
Needless to say I’m looking forward to my next Dusty’s experience.
