Christmas at the Eloquent Elephant!

Christmas came a bit early at Eloquent Elephant located in the Taj Dubai, Business Bay. The place was buzzing for a Wednesday night and was lit up; the dining area was quite decked out and the mini Christmas trees first caught my attention.

Virgin mojito! Minty, refreshing and very cooling! Served with corn and purple potato chips.

The first starter was the smoked salmon which had been sliced thinly and smoked to perfection, the wasabi guacamole went exceptionally well with the smoked fish. And look at that presentation :O

The second starter was duck foie gras ballotine with fig chutney. The pate spread on the crisp bread and topped with a sweet rich fig chutney was an incredible medley of flavors.

What is Christmas if there isn’t roasted turkey, and boy was this good: roast turkey roulade with all the trimmings. The meat just oozes with juice as soon as the knife cuts in – the accompaniments were the icing on the cake. The veggies were a great contrast to the meat and the roasted potatoes, purple and otherwise, were phenomenal. Looks are incredibly deceiving – this is one hearty and heavy dish which is hard to finish.

Wild sea bass with lobster truffle mash and thermidor glaze ❤ I love seafood and this was nothing short of perfect. The creamiest dish of the night, the soft fish meets the fluffy mash and grilled asparagus. Oh and the cheesy buttery sauce provided an incredible finish! Safe to say I didn’t share.

Dessert included a huge mason jar stuffed with Christmas cake, dried fruit, ice cream, nuts, hardened candy and all topped up with our social media handles.

Candy canes to finish this event off with a fruity bang (I went for the pink one on the top). I definitely know where I’ll be this Christmas!
