It is time for a foodie post – I am back at Le Meridien Abu Dhabi and I could not be any happier and excited to be here once again. Le Meridien Abu Dhabi is a special hotel because it offers so much more than just a comfortable room, a pool and a beach to relax. The guest are able to experience something else than just the standard amenities and what they strive here at Le Meridien Abu Dhabi is to maximize the guest experience in all levels, making them feel at home. On Today’s installment I will be sharing with you all one of the restaurants at the hotel, which is known as “The Latest Recipe” because it is one of my favorites and this is something that you all may find worth visiting during your stay at Le Meridien Abu Dhabi.
The Latest Recipe at the hotel it’s one the signature restaurants in the property. They showcase a variety of foodie nights such as Seafood night being one of them, which soon enough I will be covering that as well. Though during breakfast hours it turns into a massive buffet which its simply mouth watering. What makes this so special? They focus on bringing food from multiple destinations around the World, for example: Asian, Arabic, Indian, European and English. What more could you ask for right? The selection is endless and you won’t have a problem finding a dish you like, they are all very tasty and perfectly cooked.
THE LATEST RECIPE – OVERVIEW
Before I begin to share all the greatness that The Latest Recipe offers, I figured of sharing with you all the seating arrangements of the restaurant. Keep in mind it is pretty big and this is a slight overview of the installations, but it’s worth sharing so you have an idea how it looks like and what to expect. Prior to entering The Latest Recipe there will be a staff member on duty, they will ask for your room number and for you to check in. This is to keep track of the guest coming into the restaurant. Once you’re checked in they will offer you a sample glass of fresh raw juices, which is my favorite. if you would like, you can try both kinds being offered – I tried both and they were excellent.
- Beetroot Orange Pepper.
- Chilli Lemon & Ginger.
INSIDE THE LATEST RECIPE
By choice, I like to sit further away from the main entrance of the restaurant as I will have the view of the pool and the sea and the view during the morning it’s simply beautiful. Theres a large variety of seating options to select from and you can decide where you would like to, through from time to time the staff member will select whats best for your group of people.

FOOD COVERAGE – THE LATEST RECIPE
Lets proceed to the good stuff, shall we? As I previously mentioned the Latest Recipe focuses on providing food from multiple destinations around the World. The presentation of the restaurant is flawless and very unique, unlike any other restaurant hotel I’ve visited in the past. They put great effort on the set up and overall dish presentation which makes the atmosphere a cool one for the visitor.
Upon entering to the The Latest Recipe you will find the pastries area which of course it will be a favorite for many. Croissants, donuts and much more is offered. The presentation is very unique and the premisses are very clean and well kept. They have staff members on duty walking around constantly to make sure everything is stoked up and clean.
Aside from the pastries you will be able to find a variety of bread baskets.
Being that this is buffet style at your own leisure you can explore the restaurant to see all the great food being offered. In different stations you will find the chefs making food for the guest and you are more than welcome to request anything in particular you would like to eat. For example, on the English side you will be able to order a typical english breakfast. Scrambled eggs? sausage? beans? etc. The chef will accommodate your needs, wants and prepare the dish just like you want it. They are friendly, attentive and their cooking skills are phenomenal.
Within the English side you will also be able to find an area for cold bites to eat such as cheese and salad dressings for you to create your own salad. Everything is fresh and well kept.
One of my favorite areas of The Latest Recipe breakfast buffet is the fruit section. A large variety of fruits are offered along with different types of yogurts as well. Fruits were super fresh and the different kinds of yogurts were also very good and you will have quite a selection of yogurts to select from.
As I previously mentioned, they offer different food from multiple destinations around the World. Indian and Arabic food are two of the food they offer for their guest during breakfast. The presentation is flawless and very unique. The food is super tasty. This is a great concept of being open to new cultures and new food which is one of my favorite parts about traveling. As expected, all of it is very fresh and they provide you with different sauces and condiments to use on your food as well.
I must say that the arabic section was one of my favorites. The food was excellent and perfectly cooked and being that I am an arabic food fanatic I was truly enjoying it. A few signature arabic dish are offered.
I won’t be spoiling the rest of the greatness being offered but down below was the waffle I ordered and truly enjoyed it. I kept it simple with the Nutella topping.
The Latest Recipe – Bottom Line
The Latest Recipe its an incredible restaurant and offers a great breakfast spread for their guest. The service is what tops everything here as the waiters and staff on duty go far and beyond to make your experience memorable. I appreciated the hostess walking me through the facility and showing me around so I could get to know each section prior to eating which shows, they want you to understand each section being offered so you’re able to navigate your way around the restaurant. Do I want to see anything change here? Not quite, perhaps in the near future they can start offering more exotic dishes by offering new menu items which is always a good thing but I am 100% satisfied with my experience here, as a foodie lover – you can’t go wrong ;).
Keep in mind that the Latest Recipe also offers unique events, one of them is Seafood Night and down below I will share the details and pricing of what Seafood night is about.
