As I previously mentioned, one of my favorite things about Le Meridien Abu Dhabi is their focus on food – It goes without question how great of an emphasize they put into food and their unique events that they are constantly having. Incase you are not aware of this by now, Le Meridien Abu Dhabi offers Seafood Night at the Latest Recipe every Thursday at 7:00pm until 11:30pm. You won’t be disappointed with the endless of options being offered to you, the guest. My second favorite type of food besides Arabic has to be seafood, so believe me you will be in for a treat with all the great dishes cooked by the fantastic chefs from Le Meridien Abu Dhabi.
One of my favorite things about seafood night was the decoration of the Latest Recipe, since the theme is arabic night you will find the restaurant to be decorated with what the theme is about and they truly did a fantastic job with the design of things. Even the bread on display was of a fish, how cool is that? As a fellow aquarius, this is a pretty cool concept and it makes the vibe/atmosphere a pleasant one for the guest.

The selection of food is never ending and you can expect a huge range of over 100 seafood items to choose from delectable chilled starters to freshly barbequed delights. if you are a sushi fan, which I am sure many of you are you will find a section of the buffet which strictly offers sushi and oysters, which happened to be one of the areas of that I spent the most time on ;). Aside from the sushi, you will also find salmon sashimi.
Meanwhile the oyster section will be getting constantly restocked as one of the chefs is behind the counter preparing them, which I found it to be a nice touch as it gives the visitor a perspective on how things are done at Le Meridien Abu Dhabi.
Aside from the great sushi being offered, you will also find the salad bar which offers a variety of toppings for you to create your own salad. Everything is super fresh at the restaurant and the team takes great pride on offering the best for the visitor. Besides being able to make your own salad you will also find an area where they are little pre made salads, created by one of the chefs. The presentation within this particular area is simple yet the set up of things is great and eye catchy.
Aside from where the sushi area, you will also find a particular section of the buffet right by the salad station where you can find the following items: Mussels, shrimps, crabs and more oysters. They have a special sauce as well in which you can use if wanting to add a bit of more flavor to the food.
More signature items made by the chef. Each dish will have a description of what it is for those wondering and incase of any questions, you will find different chefs within the restaurant walking around to answer any of your questions regarding the food. They are there to serve you and make your experience memorable.

For those wanting something else than seafood – no problem. The buffer offers a variety of delicious hot bites to choose from. Such as steamed veggies, potatoes wedges and a few other signature items. Each section of the buffet has the description of each dish presented.
As far as refreshments go, on the buffet you will have a variety of juices to select from made by the chefs located within the sushi section of the buffet. Keep in mind they are different pricing to receive complimentary beverages and bubbles for your dinner and the waiter will be able to accommodate any other beverages request on your behalf.
THE GRAND FINALE – DESSERTS
For those with a sweet tooth, the desserts can be found right as you enter the Latest Recipe and in my opinion, they are some of the best and tastiest pastries I’ve had. There is quite the selection to choose from and you won’t be disappointed. The dessert is self serve and there is also a section of fruits in which you grab some if you would like.
The next favorite thing within the dessert area has to be the chocolate fountain and right next to it you will be able to find marshmallows where you can mix it with and without a doubt, it is delicious. Doesn’t get much better than this and having a chocolate fountain to enjoy some delicious treats. This was an area of the buffet that I spent most of my time at shortly after finishing the great feast of food I had. Without a doubt, the desserts were delightful and the presentation was excellent.
