Oxtail Tartine at Bleu Blanc
David Myers’ French restaurant is simply one of the best places to open in Dubai in recent years and there are plenty of things we could pick from the menu (hello, lobster risotto). However, for a good value, unbelievably tasty option, we’re going for the oxtail tartine. The deep, rich flavour of the meat is complemented by nutty comte cheese, soft yolk from a poached egg and mustardy Hollandaise, and offset by a spicy pickle. The crunch of the bread – baked in-house – adds texture. For something seemingly simple, we could talk about it for hours. Dhs60. Renaissance Downtown Hotel, Dubai, Business Bay (04 512 5533).
