Mexican Night at The Californian, Dusit Thani

Hubby and I are looking for some place to dine in to celebrate our Monthsary (Oh yes, monthsaries are for teenagers but we still do celebrate monthsaries!!) First choice was Sumibiya in Radisson Blue Deira Creek, unfortunately it was closed down for renovations so we settled at The Californian, Dusit Thani.

Nestled on the 24th Floor of Dusit Hotel, along Sheikh Zayed Road, this restaurant boasts a stunning view of the surrounding area particularly Burj Khalifa and the wonderful maze intersections of SZR. The Californian offers a variety of dishes each night based on the theme:

Monday is Mexican night and that’s where we’re at. We started out with the salad as appetizer and combined it with Cheese & Chicken Empanadas and the savoury Quesadillas. For the Main Course, Chicken En Salsa Fresca (grilled chicken marinated with rosemary herbs topped with cherry tomatoes, and dipped with red sauce) matched with Bomba Mexicana (Mexican sweet rice mixed with corn, bell pepper and kidney beans) were just perfect. An absolute perfect match! Hubby has also enjoyed the make-your-own-burritos, he loves Burritos! Our kiddo likes to eat chicken, so we’ve given him anything that’s made out of chicken. He also enjoyed the sweets and fruits particularly his all-time favourite – watermelon.

With just an additional Dhs 50, hubby was able to enjoy beer and wine. Australian’s white sweet wine Lindeman’s now became his favourite drink. Well of course, a plate of nachos was placed on our table to match with the ordered drinks.

Food was great, the price is right and the ambience is good! Service was also impeccable, our attendant was very helpful that night especially when my son was throwing tantrums. He offered some kiddie colouring arts and stuff to keep our little one busy. Everything turned out well and everything about that night was lovely!
