Seafood and sunsets at this relaxed beach house
Aprons & Hammers – didn’t that used to be on a boat?
Yep, but it’s back on dry land now and doing a roaring trade at West Beach, that nice new stretch of boardwalk on The Palm. And it’s licensed.
I’ll wear my beach shorts then.
Well, yes, if you grab a table on the sand and want to watch the sunset with a bucket of squid and a cold bevvy, your Orlebar Browns will be fine.
Pre-dinner swim? Perfect, I’ll bring my goggles, too. What’s on the menu?
Paella. It’s enormous, colourful and loaded with seafood, peppers and a lot of garlic. The small portion is AED 225 but it’ll feed four people easily – even if you’ve just been swimming.
Sold! What else?
Grilled fish of the day (AED 88) was kingfish, served simply on a board with sauces, fries and a drizzle of olive oil. Get the mahi mahi tacos with their fantastic salsa (AED 88) and order the juicy watermelon and feta cheese salad (AED 58) that arrived on a huge pile of peppery rocket.
Delish – I’ll get my shorts on.
See you on the beach - I'll order the paella.
