Blacksmith claims to be the best smokehouse in town. They serve some great bbq and other dishes along with mouthwatering drinks and desserts to the Dubai folks after it opened doors in february. It is located at Wyndham Dubai Marina, with a great outdoor area and indoor. If you are looking to ‘put some south in your mouth’ as they say, then Blacksmith is your place.
The ambiance is very chilled out, diner feel with rustic elements thrown in. Grafitti art on walls give it a very casual laid back fun vibe.
With the weather being pleasant we chose to sit outdoors amidst the lights and enjoyed live music in the background.
I loved the single page food menu and the endless beverage menu. I was non plussed when it came to my drinks. We ordered the Moscow Mule and the frozen coconut margarita. Though traditionally served in copper mugs, I was happy to see it served in a steel mug keeping its close to the original way its served. The margarita was Instagram perfect, and we both would have preferred for some more alcohol in our drinks (lol).
For our starters we ordered for Chicken Tenders and smoked chili wings.
Chicken tender was served with creamy honey mustard, and served crispy.
Among the two I almost wiped the wings clean. It was just the right amount of sticky and spicy and set my palates rushing. The hint of pepper corns accentuated its flavors and was served as a generous portion .
Dusted fries are a must eat at Blacksmith. I totally loved it.
Cilantro lime slaw didn’t agree with my Indian palate, but I loved the fact that it was served in a steel mug.
For the mains we ordered the BBQ Chicken - It was half a chicken! Perfectly glazed and served with beans and slaw on the side. It was perfectly cooked and tasted delish.
By now we felt like stuffed turkey, but desserts are desserts. We tried their best selling Choco Waffo experience and Golden Oreo banana pudding.
The Choco waffo experience is two huge waffles stacked up and served with generous amount of chocolate sauce, custard, bananas and pecans. This is a dessert meant to be shared. It’s a Waffle dream.
The Golden Oreo pudding was a simple dessert, but that had my full attention.
Overall, Blacksmith is a fun place and a must visit if you are craving American food. It’s affordable, cozy and has some super friendly staff.
Special mention to Lilian, who made our time at Blacksmith a memorable one.
We went to Blacksmith post a heavy brunch and couldn’t relish everything as we would have otherwise. I would suggest you do go on a relatively empty stomach to enjoy the food.
