Zheng He @ Mina A’ Salam

1 hour before we have to get ready for our Nien Chu Yi dinner at Shanghai Chic, so I’ll keep this short and sweet 🙂

Last night we went to Zheng He at Mina A’ Salam for tuan yuan fan. Beautiful setting next to the waterway, overlooking the Burj. I was so hopeful that there will be fireworks, boo boo. Least they made an effort, lion dances, chinese dancing, and live guzheng. The cymbal clapping was a bit off to be honest, hahaha. When we heard it from afar we thought it sounded like a giant robot walking towards us. C’mon, you should at least get your dong dong chiang right for the chinese folks 🙂

Still had a great night though. There’s a CNY menu but we managed to do Ala Carte. Food was yum, although portions really small for the price. I guess it’s just Dubai-chinese-food in-hotel price ay, sigh, and we couldn’t use the Entertainer Voucher so that’s a bummer. I’ll say, definitely give it at least one visit, chinese or not – but only with, your entertainer voucher. Recommend the pan-fried beef medallion in sweet red wine jus. Oven baked honey cod fish was really good. Ma Po Tofu was a bit disappointing.

Dubai resident. Stays most of the time in the marina as she can't be bothered going anywhere else after work and in the weekends. Originally from the land of the orang utans, spent the latter half of her life in the land down under. Always on the look out for deals, loves organising get-togethers, and occasionally steals some time for a sip of wine or four at ladies nights.
