Mandarin Oriental Al Faisaliah serves up ‘Year of Camel’ dishes

RIYADH, 24 days ago

Mandarin Oriental Al Faisaliah, Riyadh has launched a ‘Year of the Camel’ menu that celebrates the cultural value of the animal, and their enduring connection with the people of the Arabian Peninsula throughout history.

With the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia designating 2024 as the ‘Year of the Camel’, the luxury hotel’s culinary team has curated four new signature dishes using authentic, locally-sourced ingredients.

This special menu will be available throughout the year at La Brasserie, The Globe, The Mandarin Lounge, and even In-room Dining.

Executive Chef Ahmed Fazli Abdulrahman said: “Mandarin Oriental Al Faisaliah, Riyadh, has always been at the forefront of honouring the region’s rich culture and heritage, and this exclusive menu is our tribute to the nationwide celebration.

“With the launch of our ‘Year of the Camel’ dishes, we are delighted to play a leading role in encouraging guests to explore and appreciate the exquisite gourmet creations that can be crafted from camel meat and camel milk products.”

Guests staying at Mandarin Oriental Al Faisaliah, Riyadh, can embark on a culinary journey with the exclusive ‘Year of the Camel’ burger.

Comprised of a perfectly seasoned camel patty nestled between toasted buns, the signature item is adorned with a special flag in honour of Saudi Arabia’s cultural identity.

One of the most sought-after restaurants in Riyadh, The Globe has elevated this luxury ingredient to prepare a Camel Loin Pithivier. The round pie, enclosed in puff pastry, resembles a hump in a playful nod to the camel’s physique – and the meat is complemented by dessert truffle, mushroom ragout, and beetroot.

At La Brasserie – the contemporary, multi-cuisine restaurant – guests can try a Saudi-style Camel Kabsa. Tender camel meat has been cooked in a tomato sauce with onion, ginger and traditional spices, offering an innovative twist on classic flavours.

Meanwhile, The Mandarin Lounge offers a Camel Milk Ice Cream with a hint of vanilla for a delicious sweet ending to the celebration.

With a longstanding legacy of hosting Riyadh’s finest gourmet gatherings, Mandarin Oriental Al Faisaliah, Riyadh is the perfect destination this year for family and friends to honour the ‘Year of the Camel’ in the ultimate luxury setting, a statement said. TradeArabia News Service
