Leaving our girls at home and promising to treat them the next day (after all, it was our family day), Hubby and I stepped into the lobby of the luxury hotel and were welcomed by Grand Hyatt Dubai's Sales Manager who was waiting for us. Markuz immediately led us down the steps, past the indoor rainforest (I just love that part of the hotel!), and into the restaurant where we were immediately attended to and shown to our table, passing by a big silver arowana (dragon fish) in a huge aquarium on the way.
After perusing the menu, we gave our orders to the server; and while waiting for the food, we were given crackers with four different sauces to munch on.
We also had Chicken and Beef Satay (with achar, lontong and peanut sauce) that were so tasty, we hungrily devoured them.
And naturally, being the authentic Asians we are (from the Philippines and South Korea), we couldn't try something as delicious as this without rice...a plate of yummy Seafood Fried Rice! ☺
Being a seafood lover, this combination made me fill my plate several times over the course of the dinner. I swear, it was that good!
Unfortunately, although the food was exceptional, I can't say the same thing about the service. Oh, the servers were polite...it's just that it took them soooo long to bring us the main course. Well, maybe it's not their fault; maybe it was the chefs' fault. But still the wait wasn't reasonable.
Nonetheless, I would still highly recommend Peppercrab. With such a wide variety of delectable dishes to choose from, you definitely can't go wrong with the food. The prices are a bit steep, but it's still a great place to take guests who are visiting or you want to celebrate a special occasion.
And with the hotel's fantastic indoor forest (complete with lakes and real fish, waterfall, and bridges) the ambiance that surrounds you is nothing short than perfect.
