Expat Life in Dubai

Dubai: 261 Restaurant, The Els Club

Els Club Sandwich at 261 Restaurant, The Els Golf Club

A few months back, when I was looking for a cheap place to live (that’s a long story and deserves a separate blog post) we found ourselves in the middle of Sports City. As we went from one building to another to view some flats, we got tired and hungry. I used my Entertainer App’s new feature of searching for nearby restaurants and came across 261 Restaurant at The Els Club. We’ve never been there yet and have no idea what to expect so basically, it was the blind (me) leading the blind (the boyfriend) towards the unknown. Yeah, that’s a little overdramatic but you know how much of a drama queen I am by now, I hope.

The location of the restaurant is premier, right at the club house of Els Golf Course with the sweeping views of the golf course. It’s actually a sports bar so it was great for the boyfriend and I to have a break from my house hunting with a glass of beer. We had to sit inside as it was very windy the time we were there but it would’ve been really great if we were sitting outside, enjoying the sun while watching the golfers. Too bad I wasn’t able to take a photo of their outdoor seating area.

I ordered Els Club Sandwich which was very tasty and of huge serving. I downed it with a glass of strongbow. The boyfriend ordered a cuban sandwich which he immensely enjoyed too, he didn’t even let me have a bite of it to taste. All I know is that it had pork in it which is the reason why he ordered it.

I used my Entertainer voucher of course and my club sandwich went for free. YAY! Will I ever go back? Yes, sure. The only downside is, if you’re not living in the area – it’s quite hard to go to as it’s extremely out of the way. I definitely won’t be going for their brunch as hailing a cab from there looks like quite an impossible task.
