Absolute barbeque also known as AB’s barbeque is a well-known name in India serving good quality dishes consistently across all the outlets. They started the first outlet in Dubai, Sheikh Zayed road around two years back and went on to open yet another one last year in Deira. The specialty of this restaurant are the live grill tables where in different skewers are grilled directly on our table. The skewers are filled with versatile items such as prawns, chicken, fish, mushrooms, corns and even watermelons. Another innovative one is churrasco pineapple which is grilled pineapple with flavors of cinnamon.
Some of the starters were served at our table too. One of my favorite among them was American cheesy potatoes. It was finger-licking good.I also loved the lamb chops and tandoor chicken. Other starters which were served are fried corns and kebabs. They also have a wish grill counter where we can customize the ingredients we want to grill together. The most desired one was with quail, mushrooms and baby corns.
We decided to order some of the drinks from the menu.My favorites were hazel(a chocolate based drink) and virgin colada(pine apple based)
They also have a good spread of non-veg and veg items in the buffet. The salads variants were also worth mentioning.
The chicken chettinad soup was very authentic and full of flavors. Among main course, I started with mutton dum biryani.The pieces were cooked to perfection and blended well with rice.Another dish worth pointing out was grilled fish with cilantro and lime.The fish was super soft and the flavors were on spot.
Other dishes in the non veg section were kadhai egg masala, Amritsari fish curry with bones, Mongolian chicken, murgh bagmati, gosht begum ki pasand, chicken dum biryani.
In the veg section, the mushroom & spinach lasagna was so appealing. It was creamy and done flawlessly. I also enjoyed the vegetables in butter and herbs. There were more in the route such as aloo gobi mutter masala, khatal do hara pyaza, AB’s special dal.
For the desserts, they did have some interesting options such as kulfi, customized icecreams, some cute pastries and mousses. A must try among this section was the mini gulab jamuns.It was well complemented with icecream.
They did have some live stations for golas and sugar candies as well.
Verdict: Golas, Sugar candies, Kulfis and some yummy food will definitely take us through a gala of colors and flavors.
