Out by the Meydan racecourse is possibly the best festive venue for dining out from Dec 10th to Jan 1st. The great range includes takeaway whole turkey package that must be the best way for a DIY seasonal meal at home. Check out the Meydan Hotel.
It all starts with a Christmas Tree on Tue 10th Dec in
6-7 PM in the lobby where a pretty impressive-looking tree gets formally switched on. Enjoy complimentary mulled wine, hot chocolate, cookies and a visit by Santa Claus. This little event will be fun for an informal meet-up with family friends.
First Festive Brunch | 90s Forever Themed Eve Brunch 7-10 PM on Thu 17 Dec
A retro-styled Christmas Brunch with a 90’s twist. A lively evening of themed culinary highlights and nostalgic hits from, what was for many, a golden decade.
International buffet with outdoor BBQ and live cooking stations overlooking the fresh green grass of the Meydan racecourse. Plenty of surprises for the little ones, with DJ and more.
Christmas Special Afternoon Tea 10-31st Dec | 3-6 PM daily except Tue
You don’t get any more British than delicate finger sandwiches (not sure if they have cucumber ones with crusts removed!), delicious pastries and cakes and freshly-baked scones with Cornish clotted cream and strawberry preserve. Yum.
Turkey takeaway – the best way of all for a home Christmas Lunch
Available from 10-25th Dec by ordering 48 hrs in advance. Choose from a large or small whole roasted turkey with chestnut stuffing, roast potatoes, roast root vegetables, buttered Brussels sprouts, chicken sausages in blankets, gravy and cranberry sauce with trimmings and treats. From AED 450 – see website for prices. This is the lazy, indulgent but totally sensible approach!
