Madeleine Cafe and Boulangerie Dinner Specials in Dubai Mall

Madeleine Cafe and Boulangerie offers weekly specials to its patrons. From starters to desserts, you can find specials not part of their daily menu and will only be available for the whole week.

A few months back I was invited to try some exclusive dishes prepared by their guest chef, Chef Sebastian. Last month I was invited again to try their special weekly dishes. Not part of their daily menu, you can see their offer on the board placed on the left side wall upon entering the restaurant.

RILLETTE DE SAUMON

During my previous visits, we always eat by the balcony to have the view of the Dubai Fountain, but as the weather is starting to get really warm, we opted to dine indoors. I think I have mentioned it already in my previous blogs that I really love the interior decor of this restaurant. Sitting down on the bistro inspired chairs and tables, I felt I was transported back to the time I visited Paris.

We were welcomed with a generous basket of sliced bread and butter while we waited for our orders to arrive.

Our starter was the  Rillette de Saumon (see description above). At first I thought I will not like it, there was a bit on an acquired taste in it but eventually, I started to like it. It is a light dish and very refreshing to the palate.

When the main course arrived, Navarin d’ Agneau (see description above).  We were surprised how big the serving was. To be honest, it tasted like a Filipino dish called Mechado. Partnered with a pilaf rice, it reminded me of home. With this reason, I am giving this a thumbs up.

POIRE POCHEE AUX EPICES

For desserts, we were served with a Poire Pochee aux Epices (see description above), I loved both starters and main dish, but I was not a big fan of this dish. Good thing, Madeleine is known for other desserts and yes we ordered our favorite creme brulee afterwards (more on that below).

What I love with the weekly specials is that every week you can expect something new.

Aside from these, Medeleine Cafe provides other classy contemporary French Cuisines,  and of course, we can’t leave this restaurant without trying some of them (again).

SEAFOOD BISQUE

ESCARGOTS

I have tasted their Escargots before and I don’t mind to try it again. I really like its strong garlic flavor. The surprising dish for me was the Seafood Bisque. It was rich in flavor with a sort of creamy texture. I can have this dish alone and I am good for the night already.

TAGLIATELLE AUX SAUMONS

FILLET DE LOUP NICOISE

For our mains, we added the Tagliatelle aux Saumons  and Fillet de Loup Nicoise. I was not a fan of the Tagliatelle aux Saumons as I feel that it was lacking something. It feels bland and dry. On the other hand, the Fillet de Loup Nicoise was amazing. The skin of the sea bass was perfectly crispy while the rest of the ingredients effortlessly complimented each other.

For our additional dessert, we ordered the creme brulee and it was perfect. ( check my previous blog when I first tried it).

CREME BRULEE

All in all I really enjoyed my time here (again). If you are looking for a quiet place to dine with friends or family on your visit in Dubai Mall, I strongly suggest trying some of these awesome French stylish fixins.
