Explore traditional BBQ experiences at Turkish Village Restaurant
Dubai, UAE: One of the most socially interactive culinary experiences the world over is having a barbecue with friends and family and this concept is most popular in South Africa, where a ‘Braai’ or barbecue can be a weekly experience.
In Dubai, the best on table barbecue experience comes in the form of the Turkish Mangal at the award-winning Turkish Village Restaurant where chefs use premium meat, authentic Turkish ingredients and flavors and like the South African Braai, the meat is cooked over sizzling hot coals to bring out the best flavours in the meat.
The atmosphere surrounding a Turkish mangal experience and a Braai is one full of enjoyment and common on weekends, birthdays, national holidays, graduations and on any occasion to celebrate with family and friends.
At Turkish Village Restaurant, diners select premium meat cuts and marinated meat from the restaurant’s in-house butcher to enjoy a feast at grill tables that come equipped with a private charcoal barbeque and a custom-made extractor. The choice of meat includes marinated chicken, kebabs, lamb chops, sausages and beef cubes for guests to prepare the meal together with friends and family.
The Mangal or Braai experience is ideal for gatherings during lunch and dinner at AED 50/- per person that includes charcoal, water, ayran, salads and cold starters on the table while the chicken and meat can be availed starting at AED 110/- per kg to share. The meal is also served with fresh bread out of the oven, a selection of sauces and water or ayran.
Diners can end the meal on a sweet note with traditional Turkish sweets that include kunafa, milk infused tres-leche cakes, baklava stuffed with cream and pistachios as well as the creamiest baked rice pudding in the city.
The three level Turkish Village Restaurant is located strategically in Jumeirah 1 (across La Mer, next to Spinneys and the Jumeirah Grand Mosque), and in Dubai Festival City Mall promenade overlooking the fountains. It offers a laid-back memorable and interactive dining experience, within a warm and welcoming ambience. It is also a one-stop shop for artisanal Turkish products.
