A combination of UAE’s staple seafood cuisine and British flair:
We’re all for homegrown concepts here at WhereMyFoodAt. Moreover, restaurants that pay special homage to the heritage of UAE is something that tingles our senses and excites us. Although Senara doesn’t fall in the fine dining bracket, it surely is one of the most classiest seaside cafes we’ve been to yet.
What to eat:
It would be a mistake if you dine at Senara and not try some of their signature British inspired seafood dishes. Like the Lobster Roll for instance that tasted as good as it looked. The ratio of lobster to bread was perfect and the way the lobster was cooked was commendable. The drizzle of jalapeno sauce added the perfect amount of spice and balanced the sweetness of the lobster as well. Another must try seafood dish would most definitely have to be the Posh Fish and Chips. This dish has successfully managed to win the hearts of all of Senera’s diners who’ve tried it and we can see why. The perfectly flaky Atlantic Cod encased within a crunchy batter tasted absolutely divine! Served with thrice cooked hand cut chips, mashed peas and tartar sauce, this dish is a definite winner in our eyes.
If you aren’t too keen on seafood, make sure to try their Scotch Hen’s Egg that serves as the perfect snack or bar food. The eggs were perfectly soft and runny and the meat was well seasoned and flavored well. Our favorite bit was the golden crunchy crust that encased the Scotch Egg and added a beautiful texture to the dish. Oh, and we loved the rustic presentation as well!
If you do managed to pay a visit to Senara on a Saturday, then you ought to try their Saturday British Roast that’s literally fit for a king! We opted for the Chicken Roast that comes with Yorkshire Pudding, Roasted Vegetables and a thick gravy. The chicken was beautifully tender and the flavors were perfectly wholesome. Pair it with your favorite house beverage and you’re good to go!
For dessert, we ordered the Sticky Toffee Pudding with Vanilla Ice Cream. Loved the Toffee sauce in particular that was lusciously smooth and tasted decadently sweet. The beautifully presented Banoffee Eton mess, which is a combination of two of our favorite desserts definitely stole the show for us. The flavors of banana, toffee and crunchy meringue seemed to marry effortlessly well together.
What we liked:
The decor, ambiance and vibe of the restaurant seemed very calm and relaxed. Senara could be perfect for a date night, a casual coffee catch up session or every a family get together. Also, the view of the sea and yachts sailing across during day time is quite breath taking.
What we did not like:
Due to its odd location, the restaurant seemed a bit too empty for a weekend. Which is a shame since the food seemed way above average.
