Foodie Weekend - The Fish Bazaar, Habtoor Grand Beach Resort and Spa, Dubai

I've been here in Dubai for almost 10 years but frankly, I must say, I have yet to discover even half of the city.  Things are moving so fast here, buildings appear overnight like mushroom after the rain, new places to eat are opened everyday even when I have yet to try the old ones and people come and go.  I mean as an example the houses across the street keep on changing tenant and I kid you not, every month! 

So when a new friend 'S' invited me over for dinner at a Thai restaurant in Grand Habtoor Resort and Spa here in Dubai, I was thrilled for a few reasons.  One, I was going to get to know a person better (that bit is always a pleasure ) and second, the fact that I had never been to this resort before! Talk about killing 2 birds with one stone, right? :)

The restaurant, The Fish Bazaar was not the usual ordinary Thai joint. If you've been to Bangkok before, you would notice some seafood joints that served seafood the way you wished. All you had to do is choose your fresh seafood and decide the way it should be cooked. Well, The Fish Bazaar was something similar but of course in a different setting. You could decide to dine indoor or outdoor and on good days especially during the winter months, it would be fabulous to eat outdoor. We decided to eat outdoor and ambiance created by the flowing water from the water features, the obvious Thai decor and the soft breeze coming from the sea a few meters away were spectacular!

Besides the seafood that could be chosen from the display cooked the way you wished by the chefs on standby, The Fish Bazaar also served the usual Thai classics straight from the menu. Dishes like Som Tam, Tom Yum, Pad Thai and an array of desserts to finish the meal with were plenty to choose from and I was a happy customer when I saw these familiar favorite dishes of mine on the menu. Honestly speaking, I love Thai food and have been to quite a few Thai restaurants, but so far The Fish Bazaar was the first that offered a tailored dining experience which, in my humble opinion, was a plus.  In the end I was glad I went.. good food and even better company, I couldn't ask for more!
