Tom’s KiTchen Deli

Good (UAE) - - THE GOOD LIFE -

Only a city as foodie-minded as Dubai would come up with a theme park restau­rant that we ac­tu­ally want to visit. Tom’s Kitchen Deli is the sec­ond Dubai ven­ture for celebrity chef Tom Aikens (his first be­ing Pots, Pans and Boards in JBR), the youngest Bri­tish chef ever to be awarded two Miche­lin stars. With a pedi­gree like that, it’s not sur­pris­ing that the food at his café, lo­cated in River­land at Dubai Parks and Re­sorts, is rather good. There’s a won­der­fully gooey mac and cheese, crusty baguettes stuffed with pulled lamb, and thick, creamy smooth­ies that could dou­ble as dessert – try the peanut but­ter and ba­nana, which is more sat­is­fy­ing than (and rem­i­nis­cent of) a whole bag of Reese’s peanut but­ter cups. It’s a menu full of crowd­pleasers, de­signed to ap­peal to the whole fam­ily – just like the rides in the park it­self. River­land, Dubai Parks and Re­sorts, off the E11 (Dubai to Abu Dhabi), daily 10am to 11pm. Tel: (050) 1658573. Taxi: Dubai Parks and Re­sorts. tom­
