My review for Asado – Summer has arrived in Dubai, which means restaurants are introducing summer menus to beat the heat, or at least forget about the heat while enjoying your dinner in the beautiful restaurant with air conditioning on blast.
Asado’s summer menu had a variety of starters, main courses, and dessert. I was so glad to see seafood options as this place is known for the different types of meat offered.
I started off dinner with the avocado salad, which had confit tomatoes, sour cream, toaster bell peppers, lettuce, and lime dressing. The avocados were perfectly riped, but the salad was a bit plain.
For my main course, I had the pan seared salmon with a side of celeriac, fennel, beetroot, and pomegranate. The salmon was a bit dry and would have been perfect with less cooking time. I was in love with the flavours of the fennel, beetroot, and pomegranate together where I thought it was all natural and not over powering.
Finally, I got the quinoa risotto to share with my husband because it sounded delicious. The risotto had a wonderful aroma of truffle. I was surprised on how soft and creamy the quinoa was because the texture of quinoa is way different from rice, and I have to say I now love risotto prepared this way.
This restaurant deserves a rating of 3/5.
I ordered the palta a la parrila, salmon y raices, and the quinoa con hongos y esparragos.
The service that I received here was a hit and miss, where at the beginning of our dinner, the server was on top of his game in getting our drinks and orders. However, as it started to get busier, the server neglected us, so we had to motion for him to attend to us.
The timings in between courses were way too long where the main courses did not come until half an hour after we finished our starters.
The ambience of this restaurant was lovely where it was a perfect setting for a romantic dinner. The dim lighting was just right and the wall of wine bottles caught my eye immediately.
Even though it is starting to get too hot to be sitting outside, the view of the Dubai fountains from the large windows was still visible.
