Sofitel the Palm Dubai

My expectations have been set exceedingly high while booking hotels in the Emirates.
I have stayed at a few luxury hotels in the Palm area of Dubai, so when we opted for Sofitel the Palm on a recent trip, I expected no less than ultimate luxury. 

Did Sofitel the Palm live up to my expectations ?

We arrived at the hotel quite early after a long-ish flight of 7hrs. When we arrived, we had a wait time of 3 hrs before getting a room, during this period, we were able to use the hotel amenities. My little traveler jumped straight into the pool. Literally!

Its all about Asian food at Sofitel the Palm

I'm a Thai food lover, always have been, always will be; Thai food will forever be my go to food and I cannot wait to venture over to Thailand soon to taste some traditional Thai food.

I recently stopped by at 'Hong Long' at Sofitel the palm and all I can say is wowza; this place definitely set my taste buds on fire.

The evening started with a combination of starters which included a sweet corn broth, steamed BBQ chicken bun, crispy dumplings, cashew nuts amongst other appetizers. 

Next, on to a main course of Wok fried black pepper beef fillet with a baby pak choy; this was without a doubt my favourite choice on the menu. 

We finished the meal with a pretty plate of Lemon sorbet with fresh longan and some Strawberry ice cream; I also have to mention the classic mojito wiped up from the bar, it was everything in a glass and more.

My verdict on the food served here - scrum-dili-um-cious. The food was tasty, the presentation was spot on and the staff couldn't do enough to make you feel comfortable. Thanks hong-Long for having us.

If you're in the Palm Dubai area, try out Hong Long at Sofitel the Palm.

Have a great weekend.
