Me, Tim, went for a amazing evening to Dubai to visit Carnival by Tresind. Together with David from Out & About UAE and Jo from anexpatabroad, I spent a lovely night with wonderful drinks and a stunning dinner at this fabulous place.
Carnival by Tresind is a restaurant and cocktail bar at the same time. We had the chance to taste their post-modern Indian experience and try unique cocktail creations.
Spending a night at this place, the team will take you through a journey filled with memories, games, history, desires and numerous other incitements.
Also we tried a fabulous combination of great drinks and wonderful food.
We started with a cocktail based on Hendricks gin, served in an old-fashion style teacup. Our friends got a rum based 1876 Solera and a mocktail personally chosen by the bar manager Shreine John. But those haven’t been our last drinks for sure. Shreine impressed us also with Burn Bourbon Burn, Seven Spice Mulled Wine, Rum Toddy, The Boiling Skull, 3-Wood Smoked Barrel and the Flaming Ghost Rider. Not only the names are fancy but the presentation of every drink and also the food is simply massive and stunning.
Foodwise we’ve couldn’t have been more happy as well. It wasn’t the main reason we went to Carnival but if someone offers us food we do not reject, right? 😉
We got served sweetcorn fritters with a great spice (Game of Corn), crispy calamari (Squidnapped), Grilled lamb chops (Meatalious), caramalised prawns with a super tasty marinade (Pulliinji) and last but not least a T-bone steak that couldn’t have been more tender. It was perfect on the point, not only the steak but all dishes. The Indian influence can be seen in all dished without being to prominent.
After all those great drinks and dishes, the chef himself surprised us with a dessert which is called Gajak. We switched our places from the bar to a table where a white plastic sheet was rolled out. The chef started to place chocolate sauce, caramalised peanutes, and frozen strawberries on the canvas. Afterwards he placed a white chocolate sphere, filled with ice-cream and cookies/brownies, in the middle. We were almost ready to eat this massive arty dessert but the chef wasn’t finished yet. He filled the chocolate sphere with dry ice and smashed it on the canvas. Out came a real masterpiece of art. Unbelievably delicious cannot even describe it 100%.
Thinking back to this glorious evening, we cannot wait to come back with our friends!
