Had dinner by myself in this splendid restaurant while on a visit to Abu Dhabi. How could anything go wrong at the Emirates Palace? Dinner was good; service was great; the atmosphere was perfect. OK it's a little expensive, but where else can you dine with kings, and feel like one yourself? I had mezze that included asparagus salad, kibbe and hommous, followed by chichtaouk with saffron rice. But the pièce de résistance was the dessert: Mhallabiye pudding! Simply divine! Everything was washed down with a wonderful Lebanese red. Price 500 UAE Dirham. Afterwards I strolled the gardens and halls of the Emirates Palace and ended up in the lobby Café, where I had a wonderful after-dinner cappuccino topped off with sprinkles of 24k gold! I'll never forget this evening!
