We finally made our way to Streetery, after all the hype around it, and let me tell you – all the rave reviews are unquestionably true!
The food-hall is made up of 3 restaurants and cuisines under 1 roof – Zen, Hing Kee, and Fat Aunts. Between the 90’s music, the bustle of the kitchen, and the marvellous food, it feels like such an authentic experience.
There are tons of menu options, and the staff is more than happy to help guide you through it all. I can’t even begin to explain how fantastic the food was!
We loved practically everything we ordered, so you can order off the menus assured that it’s all going to be good; but here’s a list of our absolute favourites anyway (It’s a long one):
Xiao long bao (Chicken soup dumplings) – AED 29
Szechwan chicken wontons – AED 26
Scallion Pancakes – AED 14
Zen special fried rice with chicken beef and prawn – AED 37
Pad kee mao noodles also known as drunken noodles because spicy AF (Chicken) – AED 37
Phad seyu noodles Chicken option (These noodles flown in fresh twice a week from Thailand) – AED 37
Pad phet prawn which is a red curry base stir fry – AED 42
Sticky rice mango with Thai nam dok mai mango flown in from Thailand – AED 26
The food is so authentic, and their recipes are absolutely stellar. They’re constantly innovating, and testing new recipes, so there’s usually something new and delicious for you to try.
There’s a ton of food options for vegans, vegetarians, non-vegetarians, so really, there’s something there for everyone.
I couldn’t stop thinking about the food even 3 days after my visit. I just kept wanting to go back immediately. Trust me. You will too.
Luckily I had a ton of leftovers to keep me company. ;)
