Time Out Says
At the centre of Culinary Boutique is a coffee bar, which is topped with cakes in a wide range of vibrant colours.
While it’s a great spot for breakfast, with a sizeable selection of European pastries as well as an Arabic option to share, we opt to head here for dinner. And we’re not disappointed.
We start off with the grilled goat’s cheese salad, which comes with sweet caramelised onions and chunks of flaky puff pastry. And there’s no scrimping on the main ingredient, which is served warm and slightly gooey.
The porcini risotto is texturally pleasant but could be doing with a little more seasoning.
But it would be rude not to finish off with a slice of one of the enormous cakes on display, so we swiftly dig in to the Ferrero Rocher-themed option.
And it’s the perfect representation of the famous confectionery in cake form – right down to that well-known crunchy texture. We’re suitably impressed.
There’s a global menu that will suit all diners – from wagyu carpaccio for meat-eaters to cauliflower fritters and crispy tofu salad for the plant-based, with the star ingredient in each dish shining through.
You’re not going to find fusion flavours, but what you will get is refined dishes that are cooked to an exceptionally high standard.
