TJ’s sports café

Taj Jumeirah Lakes Towers’ very own TJ’s sports café hosted the celebrated cricket player Brian Lara recently, to unveil a memorabilia wall featuring three of his highest scoring and record-breaking bats. Previously taking up residence at the Melbourne Cricket Ground over the last year, the bats will now be on display at TJ’s for Dubai’s cricket fans to marvel at, for a limited period.

Diners can tuck into a special menu inspired by the sports star and his Trinidadian roots. Expect Caribbean-style jerk chicken with red bean rice and charred pineapple; spiced grilled salmon, quinoa and avocado power bowl; and a coconut cake dessert.

Additionally, the casual eatery has created special concoctions in honour of the famed cricketer’s achievements, such as the highest individual score in first-class cricket.

Sports enthusiasts will also have the opportunity to get their hands on a ‘mini-bat’ signed by Brian Lara, through an exclusive competition run through TJ’s, where fans who order from the limited-edition menu will have a chance to win.

Ongoing to March 18 from 11-1am. Call +9714 574 1111.
