After 120 days, the Meat Co Souk Al Bahar returns with new branding and a stylish venue featuring a revamped menu which The Luxe Diary team was lucky to discover at an exclusive guest-listed event where we indulged in bubbles, live music and delicious food.
The Meat Co Souk Al Bahar Reopens with a New Elegant Revamped Style
The Meat Co will surprise diners with its version of high-octane luxury, from the moment they step into the stately lobby. Its new décor is as much a part of the dining experience as the food is. This is reflected in every carefully selected detail, with the sublime elegance and aesthetics realised in the handpicked
furniture and art collection from South African design agency Story Design Collective.
Acclaimed for its outstanding authentic style, food and ambiance, the new opening promises diners a gastronomic journey in an upscale space, through a brand image refresh.
“A full summer in the making, from concept to completion, The Meat Co presents a striking venue and a new designed menu with the aim to elevate the dining experience”, said Johnny Tomazos, CEO of Food Fund International.
“From the food to the sophisticated interior and first-class service, everything exudes the distinctive South African style. We proudly welcome guests to our new revamped restaurant with their families, friends and co-workers, to a epicurean adventure in a class of its own.”
With a plethora of food options from the menu, the cuisine is nothing if not filled with variety and quality. Group Executive Chef Praba Manickam and the team have designed an array of flavourful dishes, including newcomers such as raw Tuna Tartare and Wagyu Carpaccio. Entrées include Roasted Bone Marrow, Grilled Octopus and Pan Seared Hokkaido Scallops followed by main courses such as the Pan Roasted Chicken.
But what would The Meat Co be without its juicy meat selection? Highlights on the menu are Mayura Station Signature Full Blood Wagyu and Japanese F1 2GR Blood, topped with shaved black truffle carpaccio. The Wagyu Marble and Rangers Valley Wagyu will be served with wild mushroom ragout and a choice of side order.
Seafood-lovers are in for a feast, as the new menu includes the delicious Atlantic Cod Fillet, a herb-crusted cod, filled with seafood orzo pasta, lobster bisque and pea shoots. Other options are the Maine Grilled Lobster and the Maine Lobster Thermidor, a 600g-lobster dish, accompanied by the grilled
asparagus and fresh green salad.
For all the vegetarians, the culinary team has prepared delectable Potato Gnocchi, filled with aged Parmesan cheese, covered with Datterini tomato sauce. The creamy Wild Mushroom Risotto comes with a divine truffle carpaccio cheese.
Those with a bigger appetite can order a variety of sides such as Truffle Fries with aged parmesan and parsley, the Baked asparagus with Feta, lemon zest and oregano or the Grilled corn kernels with shallots and crumbled Feta.
Wines selected from South African vineyards and the finest bubbly bring together and compliment the succulent dishes.
The New Design.
Unique in its design, visitors will find an abundance of stunning characteristics that run throughout each space, giving the brand its powerful spirit and familiar heritage. True to its brand, South Africa is a perfect meld of African hospitality and breathtaking landscape – reflected on the warm tones and elements.
The impeccable venue spans 8,300 square-feet, with the capacity to seat 320 diners and features one spacious indoor dining area and bar. The chic outdoor terrace and alfresco lounge boasts jaw-dropping views of the iconic
Burj Khalifa, representing the perfect scenery for the upcoming festive season. The floating deck surrounded by turquoise-hued water is never lost on us – making it the ultimate spot to grab a lunch when the weather has cooled down, and the perfect setting for cosy evenings.
With its refreshing upscale look and scrumptious food, The Meat Co’s new experiential look and feel speaks to all the senses.
