3Fils and Brix host 12 course fine-dining pop up at The Royal Pavilion at AED 900 per person

Turning the exclusive Royal Pavilion into a destination dining space, Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara has partnered with multi award-winning (World’s 50 Best MENA and Dubai Michelin Guide 2022)* Dubai restaurant 3Fils and confectionary gurus from the region’s only dessert restaurant Brix, to launch a fine dining pop-up restaurant in the heart of Abu Dhabi’s Empty Quarter.

Running for three months from January 2023, the exclusive gastronomic collaboration will seat up to 45 guests per sitting every Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Alternating small bites and exquisitely plated main courses, the 12-course “Around the World” dinner experience will introduce guests to some of the most exciting world cuisines through a combination of visual and gustatory storytelling. The three parts of the journey – The Odyssey, The Expedition and The Discovery – will each comprise four dishes, paired with a total of five craft mocktails served throughout the dinner.

Exclusively for the Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort collaboration, the teams at 3Fils and Brix have also put together an exquisite menu of desserts made with unexpected ingredients challenging the curious and the adventurous to open up their palates to new flavours.

The Brix chef-founder and renowned chocolatier Carmen Rueda will be personally creating her sensational desserts, including such highlights as Winter Cheesecake with brie, ginger-compressed cucumber and celery snow; Caviar Pearls made with yuzu, lime, sesame and white truffle and served in a miniature tin; and a delectable Cocoa Bean shell containing light-as-air chocolate mousse, salted caramel and coffee “soil”.

On the savoury side, guests will be treated to Asian-inspired creations from the Michelin Guide-listed 3Fils, including Thai soft-shell crab salad, aromatic mushroom and herb soup from China, Norway’s paper-thin salmon carpaccio with yuzu pearls and sesame ponzu, and a scallop flower

topped with a delicate mango sphere representing the flavours of the Philippines. Japanese high gastronomy, meanwhile, will be on display in a trio of bite-sized cold starters, including tuna potatoes, wagyu and ginger with smoked salt, and crispy tuna uni.

Guests booking the unique culinary experience will be invited into the palatial Royal Pavilion as part of the experience – a collection of ten exclusive villas with private pools located a few minutes’ drive from the main resort. With a breath-taking panorama all around, the pop-up restaurant is designed to embrace the natural surroundings of the Empty Quarter while offering diners scenic desert views and complete privacy.

Guests can also enjoy various works from the Hong-Kong based artist Michele Cade Khelifi, located throughout the Royal Pavilion. Inspired by lyrics, speeches, poems, texts, guests can enjoy a few pieces from the blah BLAH blah series.

The “Around the World” gastronomic journey at Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort is available every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 6:00 pm onwards. The experience is priced at AED 900 per person for a set 12-course degustation menu including beverages.
