I spy with my little eye... flames and laughter in Asia.

After the Nine7One and Ananta, A. and I were invited to try Umai, the Asian restaurant of the Oberoi-Dubai. As always, the welcoming was very warm, it is such a pleasure to visit this hotel! The team had planned a journey through Asia from Tokyo's Tsukiji fish market to the Korean peninsula, through Cantonese dim sum and Kansai teppanyaki. The whole dinner was punctuated by interactive moments: the gracious pouring of the tea, the smoking of the eel, the jumping teppanyaki eggs, we all got the chance to participate and join the fun. Now regarding the actual meal: all of the ingredients were flown from Asia, the flavours were subtle and fresh, I did eat too much, which is usually a very good sign. I had a crush on the Wagyu tenderloin with yaki onigri, tender, sweet, light, perfection! By the end of this delicious and fun dinner we were discussing the  skills of half naked butchers in Malaysia with the talented chef Dirk. He has as many stories as ideas for his kitchen and team. 
A big Merci to the Oberoi-Dubai team for their warmth, professionalism and attentions. They definitively go that extra mile that makes the difference. Thank you for a lovely trip down luxury lane!

Laughing with Chef Dirk, thank you for the extra side of stories!

Smoking the eel, creating clouds.

The Oberoi-Dubai does serve mist, how poetic.

Showing off!

The cutest dim sum ever.
