If there is one thing Dubai is not short of it is restaurants! Last night I was invited to the Ahlan top 100 restaurant event at Japanese restaurant, Benkay at the JAL hotel. The party spanned all three floors. We were offered endless glasses of bubbly and delicious sushi and yakitori skewers as we marvelled at the ice sculpture taking form before our eyes!
I don’t know how you choose the top 100 restaurants in this town but the magazine is a pretty comprehensive guide of all the well-known places. It is conveniently divided into sections such as ‘seafood sanctums’, ‘see and be seen’, and ‘creme des chefs’ etc. And on each restaurant there is a little recommendation of what to try.
There are many restaurants that we have actually shot in for lifestyle or food photography so I am familiar with them but it does make you realize just how much culinary talent there is out there and how many more beautiful interiors there are to experience and how many more delicious flavours there are to savour! I think I’ll go out for dinner this week!!
