Emirates Palace’s flagship restaurant Sayad has unveiled a new menu concept that has caught the fancy of gourmet connoisseurs and foodies alike.
Known as Pacific Rim, this concept has been developed by itinerant chefs – from Hong Kong to California - who brought together the many culinary traditions and exotic ingredients they acquired during their travels to countries in Asia, Australia and the Americas.
Although the term Pacific Rim is seen often on menus around the world, true examples of this cuisine is found only in a few select venues and Sayad is the first restaurant in Abu Dhabi to offer this cuisine.
Chef Bryan Chan of Sayad said the Pacific Rim menu is unique and not to be confused with fusion cuisine. “It is an altogether different menu, one that creates exciting new dishes of unusual combinations and flavours with a particular focus on seafood and Asian spices in addition to some of the more traditional meats cooked with a Pacific twist.”
The Pacific Rim’s three-course menu starts at Dh500 per person.
