I like going to pubs than clubs/bars these days. Why? Because one, I don’t have to dress up. Two, the menu is straightforward with no pretensions and won’t be served in a huge plate with things to prettify it which you can’t really eat or let alone need. Lastly, the crowd is normal most of the time.
Last weekend, we discovered two new pubs in this great city of Dubai. New for us because we haven’t been there yet but it’s most probably been alive and kicking for a long time now. One of them is The Underground Pub at Habtoor Grand Beach Resort & Spa. I loved it the minute I walked in, the bar which they made to look like a real Londoner’s tube caught my eye. On top of that, the smell of food was so good it made my mouth water. They had some pool tables, huge screens for sports shows and an outdoor garden which was closed at the time for summer. I ordered Central Line, a cocktail mix of… I don’t really remember but it was great! For food, I ordered pork chops! Yes, they serve pork and one helluva pork chops.
I ordered it well-done of course. The meat was still so tender and the mushroom sauce just really compliments the taste. It’s probably the best pork chops I’ve ever had here in Dubai as of date. I’ll definitely go back for some more of it.
