Hell’s Kitchen at Caesars Palace Dubai is serving the tastiest Saturday roast in the city
Gordon Ramsay says the key to cooking a good roast dinner is “to have a time plan.” The chefs at his lively Dubai restaurant Hell’s Kitchen must have clocks on every wall, then, because the roast they’re cooking up right now is the best in town.
The first word on the menu at the bright restaurant inside the cavernous Caesars Palace resort is ‘traditional.’ This is the claim of many roast dinners in Dubai, few of which actually hit the spot. But Hell’s Kitchen clearly has Ramsay’s British influence because all the parts came together beautifully.
The Yorkshire puddings were crunchy on the edge but gooey inside; the succulent lamb hadn’t been overcooked; the mint sauce had just the right amount of acidity, and the horseradish cream – wow – made the nasal passages tingle as it should. Roasted carrots had some satisfying bite and the red cabbage brought a warm and spicy richness. The green beans were a bit over-truffled, but not a disaster. Smother everything in gravy and everybody’s happy.
The highlight, however, were the roast potatoes that were big, crispy and with a fluffy inside – sort of like Gordon Ramsay himself perhaps.
Saturday 12.30-3.30pm; AED 295 for roast, dessert and three drinks
