The Galeries Lafayette gourmet food market located on the top floor of the store in the Dubai Mall is like a candy store for foodies. With 4,000 square feet of space containing a mini-supermarket, bakery, chocolatiers, temperature controlled cheese room, butcher and gourmet delicatessen, it is a food shoppers paradise. The space also has various islands of prepared foods (eat-in or take-out) from various regions including: sushi, Indian, Italian, Chinese, and other cuisines.
On this Friday we paid an early visit to the butcher to buy some lamb for our Easter dinner the following night. Having rushed over before breakfast we decided to grab a quick bite while they were preparing our meat order. On the menu: The Full Monty – 2 eggs anyway you like, choice of veal bacon, beef or chicken sausage, baked beans, baked tomato, grilled mushrooms, potato cake and choice of white or brown bread. In this instance, a picture is worth a thousand words.
This was a fresh, high quality and hearty plate that will take you from breakfast to dinner. We only had a couple of minor complaints – the eggs were slightly under cooked despite being ordered over easy and the potato cake arrived ten minutes later as we were finishing the meal.
The service can be slow and confused at times, but the servers are friendly so this can be forgiven at such a casual dining environment. If you’re in the Dubai Mall and looking for something different for a quick bite Lafayette Gourmet is definitely worth the visit.
The Full Monty – 45 AED
