Review: Chez Wam

Nestled in the highly anticipated dining hub St. Regis Gardens on Palm Jumeirah, Chez Wam (translated to ‘At mine’ in colloquial French) is reminiscent of Tokyo’s underground scene and Morocco’s vibrant street flavours, effortlessly combined with the richness of Mediterranean cuisine. Expect an extraordinary dining journey that immerses guests in a European-inspired setting, further elevated by the soulful tunes of the resident DJ.

Chez Wam

The intimate dining section oozes an enticing charm, boasting rustic interiors with dark woods, leather accents, and rich red tones. For those seeking an up-close culinary spectacle, the coveted Chef’s Table caters to six lucky guests, granting an opportunity to witness Chef Hadrien’s culinary wizardry firsthand. For our evening, we opted for a cosy dining space to discover the diverse offerings of the restaurant’s extensive menu.

The highlights

To start, we relished the Fried camembert with its unique twist of black garlic and sweet Philly sauce. The Lobster roll was a real treat, revealing a flawless blend of zesty mayo and a touch of chilli powder, and the Burrata was creatively plated with cherry tomatoes, zesty pickled vegetables, and a lavish date glaze, accompanied by crispy bites of fried pita bread.

We took a moment to explore the delightful selection of refreshing beverages offered at the venue. I indulged in the Basil fido dido, a refreshing concoction made with fresh basil, flower tea mix, and lemonade while my dining partner opted for the refreshing Kizami, a blend of peach, yuzu, kaffir leaf, and carbonated fresh pineapple juice.

For our main course, the SSAM slow-cooked beef short rib stole the show. The tender yet crispy beef, wrapped with lettuce and the drizzle of teriyaki glaze sauce elevated the flavours even further. Our next choice, the Wild mushroom barleysotto No 5, impressed with its rich taste, complemented by parmesan foam and shaved truffle.

When it was time for dessert, we enjoyed the Triple chocolate brownie – served in a pot with generous layers of whipped ganache, candied nuts, chocolate brownies, and toasted bread ice cream that left us wanting more.
