This is officially my first blog post for the year, and hopefully, there are many to follow. For all those following my social media accounts, Instagram mostly, you’ll know that I still exist and am totally not out of the picture like how the website would show. Rather, what I’ve started doing is carefully selecting restaurants to review and feature, especially those that really make it for me.
One such place was Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, located at The Address, Dubai Marina, a hotel that I’m not unfamiliar with. To sum it up, I’ve had some of the best experiences at their restaurants, and they’re truly worth a try.
We visited Ruth’s Chris late evening for a casual dinner, the service is top notch and we are immediately ushered to our table. The appetizers we order are Spicy Shrimps [AED 95] and a very interesting, Mushrooms stuffed with Crabmeat [AED 75]. Lightly fried and stuffed with soft crabmeat, the mushrooms topped with Romano Cheese was a perfect starter!
We decide to skip the salads, and go for what we really came for – the meat! And from what our server, Youssef, recommends, the New York Strip [AED 275] seems like the best option. A full bodied, USDA Prime of 16 oz is placed on a sizzling plate in front of us. And I mean sizzling literally, as that’s one of the specialties of Ruth’s Chris. The meat so tender and flavorful sans sauce is what dreams look like. If you don’t prefer the natural flavors of the meat, you can choose between a peppercorn and a mushroom sauce to pair with your steak.
While the husband chooses the former, I opt for the tried and tested and loved, Stuffed Chicken Breast [AED 145]. No words for this, just watch the video below…
A whole chicken and a huge piece of meat can fill up at least three, but that didn’t stop us from our favorite course – dessert. We order a sinful chocolate cake which comes with a side of airy chocolate mousse. Decadent, without being overly sweet and a great end to the evening.
If we’re going back: The service is exceptional at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, and we’d give a special mention to Youssef, who ensured our evening went smoothly. Ruth’s Chris is known for what it does best and that’s what we strongly recommend. The steaks here are unbeatable and a must try.
