This Downtown Spot Serves Up Steak Cuts... on a Sizzling Hot Stone!

It’s not every day you get to tuck into a juicy steak… on a floating deck with Burj views! After closing its doors to undergo a four-month renovation, The Meat Co at Souk Al Bahar is now open and it’s taking al fresco dining to a whole new level. Get ready for mouth-watering South African steak cuts, a brand-new dedicated bar area with insanely creative drinks and dessert towers that will leave you wanting more. Here’s why foodies won’t want to dine anywhere else this winter…

A meat lover’s paradise

From super-aged specialities to tender steaks flame-grilled to perfection, this restaurant is allll about the meat. Now don’t get us wrong – the menu also offers a decent selection of seafood favourites such as freshly shucked oysters served with mini Tabasco sauce syringes (some of the best we’ve had in a while!)

If we had to pick a foodie fave from our experience, it would have to to be the Australian Angus T-Bone. Picture this: 1kg of 250-day gold grain-fed beef, carved and served on a sizzling lava rock. Drooling yet?! Oh, and the homemade chocolate and beetroot bread definitely deserves a shout-out (we’ll be coming back for you!)

Dessert towers with a side of entertainment

We’re massive dessert lovers, so you can only imagine the excitement on our faces when we saw The Meat Co’s huge Dessert Sharing Platter coming towards us. This mountain of mini signature dessert tasters is creatively presented over ice and features everything from Chocolate Fondant to Chocolate Malva Pudding. The best part? The desserts come with a special side of entertainment, complete with traditional South African drumming and singing that’s guaranteed to get the entire restaurant up and clapping.

Creative drinks that were made for Instagram

One cool feature at the all-new Souk Al Bahar branch is the dedicated bar area Hemingway’s. Elegantly designed with stylish gold accents, it’s the perfect spot for Ladies Night or post-dinner drinks. Now we’ve seen creative drinks before, but the ones served at Hemingway’s are on another level. We’re talking cocktails presented in pink teapots (bonus points goes to the two biscuits that came with it!), men’s cologne bottles and rooster-shaped glasses!
