As part of its summer-long celebration of seafood and shellfish, Pierchic has laid claim to having the world’s poshest fish and chips.
During “Shellebration”, the fine-dining specialist seafood restaurant at Al Qasr, Madinat Jumeirah, has been embarking on a European culinary adventure across the continent. So far the restaurant has covered Portugal (available until Saturday August 19), as well as Spain and Italy, each with a unique dish available for a fortnight. If you’re in the mood for some Portuguese cuisine, enjoy the cataplana de peixe y marisco – a classic dish featuring sautéed monkfish, clams, prawns and vegetables.
As of Sunday August 20, the Shellebration journey moves to England, with the presentation of possible the most iconic national dish – fish and chips.
Get your hands on a modern twist on the classic dish originating in 17th century England. Usually cooked using cod or haddock, Pierchic will be dishing up hops-battered turbot, a fish only found in Europe and known for its flavour and texture. The turbot will be served alongside a portion of triple-cooked Maris Piper potato chips (fries) and some gourmet mushy peas.
The dish will be priced at Dhs270 on the à la carte menu, while also being incorporated and available on the Chic Brunch menu, which is available on a Friday afternoon between 12.30pm and 3.30pm. Make sure you get your hands on the dish while it lasts between Sunday August 20 and Saturday September 2.
