BET YOU DIDN'T KNOW
Blackmore Wagyu Beef, which you'll be enjoying on this romantic getaway from Dubai, is an award-winning and internationally recognised brand of full-blood Wagyu beef. Blackmore's cattle are raised in Australia, and distributed to local and overseas markets. Blackmore sells one-third of its beef in Australia and two-thirds in Southeast Asia, North America, and the Middle East, including Dubai, and they have recently expanded into the European Union. Their beef is a premium quality, luxury item, found at high-end restaurants and gourmet butchers internationally.
"Wagyu" refers to several breeds of cattle, the most famous of which is genetically predisposed to intense marbling and to producing a high percentage of oleaginous unsaturated fat. The meat from such wagyu cattle is known for its marbling characteristics and quality, and commands a high price. In several areas of Japan, beef is shipped with area names. Some examples are Kobe, Mishima, Matsusaka, Ōmi, and Sanda beef. Wagyu cattle's genetic predisposition yields a beef that contains a higher percentage of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids than typical beef. The increased marbling also improves the ratio of monounsaturated fats to saturated fats.
All of this adds up to a fantastically delicious and tender cut of beef, which you can enjoy at Al Maha Dessert Resort and Spa! So take a day trip from Dubai and get some of the best beef in the world!
MORE ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE
Romance requires a truly special setting with all the accoutrements. How about your the private exclusively enclosed pool setting, a personal chef and waiter, a gourmet meal and a breath-taking view of the desert's rolling sands? Combine that with limousine transportation to and from the city, and you've got an afternoon that is absolutely unique, and an experience you and that special someone will treasure for years to come. With this latest exclusive experience from Lime&Tonic and Al Maha Desert Resort and Spa, the dream can be reality!
You and your partner will get picked up in Dubai in a limousine, which will transport you from the city out to the desert, where Al Maha is located. Here you'll be seated at a private pool with an unbelievable view over-looking the desert. Enjoy the view to your heart's desire, as a personal chef and waiter will cater to you, preparing a divine meal paired with premium vino. Each of your courses will be paired with the perfect vino chosen by Al Maha's expert sommelier. You'll begin your romantic feast with your choice of starter: Salmon and halibut carpaccio, served with vanilla and pineapple vinaigrette, and fresh greens. Or you could choose Blackmore beef tartare, served with yellow bell pepper jelly, poached quail egg and Dijon mustard. The entrees are equally sublime. You'll choose from two: A duo of Barbary duck, served with crispy comfit, cauliflower puree, parsley farfalle and vanilla clouds. Or go for some gourmet comfort food, with lobster ravioli, served with Granny Smith beurre blanc.
If you think the starters are delicious, wait for the main course. You'll revel in Blackmore beef ribeye, served with onion jam, bolet tortellini, spinach and cinnamon foam. If you would prefer something lighter, fish and vegetable options are available upon request. No matter what you choose, your private meal will end with a decadent dessert. You'll indulge your sweet tooth with bourbon cheese cake with compressed strawberry compote. You'll also love the banana and date parfait with banana crumble and caramel sauce. It's divine! After dessert, you'll also have your choice of premium teas and coffee, along with petite fours.
When all is said and done, your afternoon and evening at Al Maha will be a treasured memory. So if you're looking for a great Dubai getaway, and a truly unique gift to show your partner how much you care, look no further. Perfect romance awaits!
