If you like lots of meat, I mean lots of very good meat in Abu Dhabi, you should try Famous Dave’s. This original American BBQ restaurant is just fabulous, ooops, I mean famous!
Famous Dave’s is located in the city centre of Abu Dhabi, in the 3rd floor of the Abu Dhabi Mall. The atmosphere is chilled and you can easily come by with your jeans and trainers. Already while entering the place, the staff is welcoming you and spreads their happy mood to you.
The design is urban and cool and the atmosphere quite easy going. This is the perfect thing for a little after work meet up with friends or colleagues.
At first we started with a gigantic starter platter, full of meat, onion rings and other delicious things. To be honest, I was already stuffed after this, but no way, as a real foodie I have to manage the main course as well and the desert, for sure, to go home happy afterwards 😉
So as mentioned previously, we tried their delicious starter platter which was really yummy. Especially the onion rings and the beef … were so good and tasty!
For drinks we went for a Famous Garden Pitcher and their Famous Passion Fruit Margarita. We also had a fantastic drink with celery but I forgot the name unfortunately.
All of this was really good!
So after we nearly didn’t finished the starters, we went over to the main course which was even more gigantic than the starter. Next to grilled salmon, beef, potatoes, chicken and even fried cucumbers, it was so difficult to decide what to eat first. It was really good and so juicy!
We got so curious about their smoker and the cooking of this delicious meat that we were more than happy to got invited to the kitchen by the chef.
He showed us their massive smoker and explained us everything about the cooking and smoking processes of the meat.
We had even the change to test the temperature of the meat pieces in the oven and noticed again how soft and tender the meat is after hours and hours in the smoker. So good!
Thanks Chef for this experience!
I really have to say that the overall service at Famous Dave’s was really good. I love it so much to visit places where the staff is in a good mood and spreads their energy over to the guests. Also our waiter was lovely. She came all the way from Kirghistan and could suggests many nice things and had definitely a clue about what she was doing!
OMG, and before I forget, the dessert was also so nice! We had bread pudding, banana pudding and chocolate fondant with ice cream. In my opinion the bread pudding was the best! It was tasty and honestly the best thing to finish the evening with!
So next time you’re looking for a cool and chilled place in Downtown Abu Dhabi to hang out with your friends and family, Famous Dave’s is absolutely an option for you. So good and the perfect place for meat lovers!
