Gold-dusted chicken nuggets on menu in Dubai

The swanky snack is served at Fairmont Dubai’s Trophy Room


We’ve found some golden nuggets in Dubai, and not the kind you get from a mine. Chicken ones. This swanky bar snack is on the menu at brand-new sports bar Trophy Room.

We’ve checked out the menu at Trophy Room, which opens at Fairmont Dubai next Monday (June 11), and these are the shining star, literally.

A fry cry from any fast food fried nugget, these treats are made of corn-fed chicken and double breaded – before being given a liberal sprinkling of gold dust.

Coming in at Dhs180, they’re a little out of the price bracket of fast food chain regulars, too.

You get four of the shimmering delights on your plate, plus a choice of three dipping sauces – Danish blue cheese, black pepper ranch and ranch.

There’s a whole host of interesting items on the menu, including black truffle poutine (Dhs39) with cheddar, veal bacon and blue cheese, and cornflake chicken strips (Dhs46).

There’s also a “build-your-own” with loaded nachos, chicken wings and cheesy fries as well as a “Burger Nation” list with black bean, Portobello, salmon and classic beef patty options starting at Dhs60.

The Beast Burger 2.0 catches our eye too – including two wagyu and duck fat patties, Camembert, truffle aioli, heirloom tomato, onion rings, mustard and a choice of salad, coleslaw or Parmesan fries for Dhs105.

Fear not, fussy diners, as there’s also classic pub grub including a club sandwich, butter chicken, fish and chips, pizzas and sticky toffee pudding.

The clean-cut, gold-trimmed sports lounge arrives just in time for the World Cup, too, as it has TVs lining the main bar area, large screens dotted around the venue and a master screen made up of nine individual screens at one end.

With a trophy cabinet, low-slung seating and an exposed ceiling that gives the place a classy-yet-industrial edge, Trophy Room looks set to be a top place to catch the game. We can’t wait to check it out.

Open daily noon-2am, from Mon June 11. Fairmont Dubai, Sheikh Zayed Road (04 3118316)
