Imagine, cosily wrapped up warm inside, fireplace cracking away nicely and diving face first into a pile of freshly scraped raclette.
If you’re yet to come across raclette, it’s a Swiss cheese heated to melting point and scraped straight off the wheel onto your plate, in all its gooey goodness.
Few things in this world sound more idyllic, so it’s a good job that Alpine-themed ski lodge bar Publique has launched a brilliant offer to get you out of the house this summer. The Souk Madinat bar, which sits on the right side of the fun-tacky line, is offering up a range of sharing dishes with a carafe of grape at some pretty compelling prices.
Get your hands on a cheese fondue to share for Dhs140, a pierrade (a hot stone used for cooking thin slices of meat) for Dhs170 or raclette for Dhs180, all including a carafe of grape.
Sounds like a pretty good reason to get over to Souk Madinat Jumeirah and escape to the Alps, in the middle of Dubai.
From Dhs140. Daily noon-midnight. Ongoing. Until Sep 30. Souk Madinat Jumeirah, Umm Suqeim (04 430 8550).
