BLUE ORANGE

Blue Orange. A good color combination right? Not on this entry. This is the name of restaurant where we dine in last September 29. It is located in the ground level of The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort in Al Sofouh Road. It was 3rd week of September when we were looking out for a restaurant for our traditional dinner date with all the girls in the office. Then my officemate saw this Blue Orange on online buying site offering a great discount with only condition that voucher can be used only from Saturday to Tuesday between 6pm to 10:30pm which is exactly what we want. It is better for us to go out after work so that we can reserve our weekend for our individual errands. Everybody agreed on Tuesday night and instantly we got our confirmed booking.

We easily found the hotel as well as the restaurant where we booked. The three things I notice after the staff accompany us in our reserved table is 1) big space for diners 2) high ceiling and 3) good interior design. Even my officemates are so fascinated in Blue Orange’s ambience.

Blue Orange is an international restaurant with live cooking station where food can be cook as per your request. That night, we have sumptuous dinner experiencing the best of Thai cuisine, taste of Arabia, food from Indian origin, pasta corner, appetizers and dessert delight.

In Thai station, you can pick the ingredients you want to include in you Tom Yum soup and the Chef will definitely cook it in front of you.

The Roasted Chicken Wings, mixed seafood and Thai noodles is sure winner to all. I even came back for Chicken Panko and Fish Fillet which taste heavenly.

Every diners has a variety of main course to choose from. I tried mussels in saffron sauce, a slice of slow-cooked sirloin with mixed paella and couscous as side dish.

The dessert corner in Blue Orange is less in number  compare to many buffet restaurant we visited before but I am confident to say that it taste much better. The chef freshly cooked crepes for us then we added some pinch of pistachio, chocolate and top with maple syrup. By the way, I’m happy with their version of Raspberry cake.

Either whole or slice fruits, anyone?

We are about to leave when one staff approach us for a surprise. They gave a cute chocolate cake and even sang a birthday song for the celebrant in our group. The cake tastes so good. The day become extra special because of their genuine effort.

Whether they named it Blue Orange because of colorful interior or any unsung story, one thing for sure, you will love to step inside, sit, dine and feel good on their offered food.
