The Pangolin has officially opened its doors at The Els Club in Dubai Sports City.
The brainchild of a collective of creative minds that include restaurateur Sergio Lopez and Australian Cook Troy Payne, The Pangolin has been created with the community in mind, sprawling across two floors on a 60,000 sqft plot.
The F&B complex is made up of two relaxed and casual restaurants, two bars, a private dining room, a member’s room, and a first-floor terrace.
Payne, who is responsible for The Pangolin’s food and beverage direction commented: “The menus in all of The Pangolin’s restaurants feature real, honest and simply put, good food which we believe people need now, more than ever, after a strange and isolating year. You’ll find heart-warming home comforts that we cook from scratch on the menu that have been inspired by good memories and happy stories, which we’re sure will take people back to happy moments around the dinner table.”
The ground-floor restaurant is the first part of the complex to open, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, and will offer updated twists on classic breakfast dishes such as Fresh Hot Smoked Salmon with Pull Apart Bread Soldiers, Caperberry Mascarpone, Soft Boiled Eggs with a Dill Dressing; Crumpets with Poached Eggs, Wilted Greens, Smoked Beef Rib and Biltongaise and Avocado Mousse with Pink Peppered Rucola, Haloumi Croquettes, Local Tomato Salsa on Grilled Sourdough.
Soups, Salads, Sandwiches and Boasties will be available to order from lunch time, as well as Paper Bag food.
The Pangolin’s first-floor restaurant and stunning bar and lounge will open in November for lunch and dinner, and serves a menu of reinvented traditional dishes, as well as a unique beverages list.
The first-floor terrace with an open fire pit will be open for business from lunchtime, and will serve food from the land and the sea cooked over hot embers such as Native Chicken on Cassia Bark, Twice Cooked Veal Belly, Salt Baked Seabass and Braised and Coal Fired Squid.
