I was really excited when I recieved an invitation to experience an entirely new innovative dining concept – Le Petit Chef Dubai at World Trade Club, in Dubai World Trade Center. Unlike any other dinner I had experienced before, the Dinner Time Story told by Le Petit Chef himself takes guests on a 6 course dinner journey through innovative 3D projection mapping. So imagine watching a movie on your plate and table throughout the entire course of your dinner, it is pure entertainment and a very memorable 2 hour dining experience.
What makes this experience so unique is that the mood, music, table patterns, props and decoration all change with the chapters of the story to immerse the diner into one continuous 3D projected tale.
Le Petit Chef, Dinner Time Stories are running until December 2017, at Dubai World Trade Club – AED 450 per person, inclusive of select soft drinks.
The dinner journey starts with some welcome drinks and then guests are shown to their tables. The story starts just like any other story with a special book, which is laid out on every guests table and really adds to the authenticity of the experience. Le Petit Chef himself is the star of the show and tells the tale of Marco Polo’s travels from different countries, inspiring the different courses throughout the dinner – so expect a mix of international cuisines.
Our foodie experience started with a treasure chest right in the middle of the ocean with a starter of Tarte Nicoise and Amuse Bouche. This was followed by Arabian dishes inspired by Marco Polo’s travels and another special treasure box that concealed the next course of kibbeh and mezza. I absolutely loved the special touches of the props as they really added to the overall experience.
During the next part of the Dinner Time Story we were taken to India, where a lot of colours and spices were infused into the next course of Spicy Prawns and Tamarillo, Plantain Fritter with Indian Spices and Jackfruit Cutlet with Spicy Mango Dip, all served on a beautiful silver tray. Loved the fourth course of a cleansing sorbet, and the dry ice with hot water was a great touch.
The fifth course was my favourite because I love chinese food, and I chose the sea bass, which was delicious! For this course you get to choose your preffered meat for the dish.
The last course was, you guessed it, dessert, which was an unusual mix. A Creme Brulee inspired rich pudding with saffron, and a delicious berry sorbet on the side. The mix was different but I loved it! For this course we got to see the mini chef himself make the dish right at our table.
Overall I enjoyed the unique dining experience with Le Petit Chef and highly recommend it to all foodies.
