Al Hadaq Emirati Seafood Restaurant – Review
Emirati Seafood Restaurant Al Hadaq is a fresh new joint in Dubai to open doors to the Real sea food flavours of the Emirati cuisine.
It is not surprising to see many new restaurants opening up in Dubai, every now and then. But to find a restaurant that offers real and indigenous flavors is a rarity. The brand-new Emirati seafood restaurant Al Hadaq is one such place to explore what the people of this great city of light truly savour.
Located in the heart of Dubai, Al Barsha 3, the restaurant offers a plethora of sea food with just the right spices and recipes, loved and coveted by the local population. With authentic local authentic local flavors, the recently opened Al Hadaq promises to deliver unique flavours to the tourists and the residents.
We headed to the discover the restaurant offers in a bid to discover the real Emirati seafood flavour. Nestled at a considerably open locale, with a few more speciality shops Al Hadaq seems to be enjoying a cosy settings. Inside the restaurant was divided into two areas the vast majlis style private seating areas and the casual table and chairs seating arrangement in the main dining hall. The decor of the restaurant simply added to the rich seafaring history of Emirates with lovely accents. Hawsers, fishing nets, seashells and hanging bulbs added to the feel of the place. It felt like almost sitting in an old Dhow and having a warm delicious meal.
Our tasting journey started with the appetisers; in our case since we were late we started with the Lentil soup. No Emirati cuisine is complete without the typical Lentil soup. The rich creamy texture of the soup with a hint of lemon drops made it stand out as one of the best lentil soups we have experienced in Dubai. It’s simplicity was the winning bit. No pretension just pure creamy goodness. We recommend it to anyone paying a visit to Al Hadaq.
Our main course arrived as soon as we were done with the soup. A line up of Emirati favourite, Grilled fish, Fish curry, aromatic rice, Fish pizza was spread in front of us. We started off with the aromatic rice and the fish curry, which was fragrant yet mild in spices. It was an interesting mix of delicate and aromatic spices. The grilled fish was done perfectly as was expected, you can easily play with the flavour by adding salt and lemon to taste. The fish pizza was not too fancy but had the homemade taste. Along with our main course we tried the essential watermelon juice which is just refreshing and a staple in Emirati cuisine.
Serving lunch and dinner from 11 am to midnight weekdays extended to 01 am Thursday and Friday, Al Hadaq is a homey eatery especially for those looking for the authentic Emirati seafood fares. It gets our thumbs up for authenticity and comfort!
