The Oscars just got over. I was in the perfect restaurant watching the Oscars at the Taste of Fame restaurant. The theme for the night was ‘The OSCARS After Party’. At the entrance of Taste of Fame is the famous red carpet with king size trophies waiting to greet you and for the Oscars night special there were paparazzi around you busy taking snaps. I guess it was an Oscar night special arrangement but surely it did give me a wonderful experience of being a star.
Inside this restaurant they had wax models of famous celebrities. It reminded of the famous place Madame Tussauds. You could find these wax models on different corners of the restaurant. There were more hollywood actors than any other. But this restaurant just doesn’t promote hollywood, it is a celebrity themed restaurant. I was told very soon they might have a wax figure of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum 🙂
The interiors of Taste of Fame is really nice. The Lightings are very special. They have Elton John playing piano at the center of the restaurant. You will find wide screen LCD on all sides of the restaurant. So no matter where you sit you should get a television to watch. Tonight it was all oscars playing.
At Taste of Fame you generally find Italian and Asian cuisine. I was here to try their Oscar set menu which was priced at Dhs 249. Since it was a set menu once you start they would just continue to bring one after the other as I finish each plate given. At the end of the day their food has been very satisfying.
Virgin on the beach – Cranberry juice, Orange juice, Peach Juice and Grenadine
Ipanema – Lime, Brown sugar, Passion fruit juice, Ginger Ale
The mocktails are always refreshing with each restaurant have it’s own mixes. I was very much impressed with their mocktail called Ipanema. Even though my order was the ‘virgin on the beach’ I just couldn’t resist going back to Ipanema. Its a must try if you are at Taste of Fame.
It was a little of everything on their plate for starters/appetizers. They make good food for sure. Whatever came in was really nice. There wasn’t anything on the plate that we could complain about. Every bite was golden 😀
The steak was juicy and tender. The sauce that was on top of the steak made the steak even more good looking and tasty. By the way you can also eat out in fresh air in their balcony facing the sea. But the sea is a little too far to enjoy the view but it’s there.
The desserts were 50 50 in taste. There were good looking macaroons which didn’t taste great. This one item they need some improvement. I mean if you’ve eaten the macaroon at La Mainson Du Chocolate you know what I am talking about. But desserts like their cheese cake was lovely in taste. The below chocolate item was also good. It came with a chocolate mousse filling in it.
They make fantastic looking birthday cakes. I am not sure how well they taste but surely they design well. You can get any kind of design for your birthday celebration. I’ve taken few shots for you to see. That game subway surfer is my son’s favourite game on the ipad. I think it’s high time i get him this cake for his birthday. The cakes would cost around Dhs 400 – Dhs 500 depending on the weight of the cake.
