Seafood Thursdays in Medley at Pullman Dubai Creek City Centre Hotel

When the pandemic started, dining out became a rare occasion for me and Ed. It was surprising and somehow funny how I transitioned from being a big eater in restaurants to a domesticated wife who preferred to eat home-cooked meals. But as expected, halfway through 2020, my taste buds longed for diversity. So when the new norms of eating out were implemented, we safely and slowly began rediscovering Dubai's food scene... starting from the restaurants we loved pre-Covid.

Medley in Pullman Dubai Creek City Centre Hotel was one of our go-to venues for theme night buffets and Iftars in the past. Following the municipality's strict safety guidelines, it recently reopened and reintroduced Seafood Thursdays. 

Safety + Seafood. Those two are enough reasons for me to go back to Medley.

Dining in Medley
While a staff courteously guided us to our table, I glanced around and was happy to see that Medley's interior is unchanged. It has always been exuding a sophisticated yet inviting ambiance. Adding to the excellent atmosphere, the decors for Seafood Night is on point! 

Adhering to the safety protocol, the buffet spread is now enclosed in glass panels. Social distancing is observed in the seating plan and buffet queue. Everyone is required to wear a mask that can only be taken off when eating.

Sumptuous Seafood Spread in Medley 
For starters, Medley offers a vast selection of seafood appetizers. The spread was brimming with sushi, salads, steamed mussels and shrimps, and too-pretty-to-eat seafood cocktails. My favorite has to be the shrimp cocktail. I totally adored the presentation, not to mention that perfect creamy concoction that goes so well with the succulent shrimps!

Seafood Paella
Every buffet has a highlight or as Ed and I often identify as a star of the night. And for Medley's Seafood Thursdays, it was the Paella. The rice was perfectly cooked with a tinge of spice, and topped with a generous amount of seafood.

Two thumbs up for this!

Fresh Sustainable Seafood
Also not the be missed is the fresh seafood counter for the live cooking station. It has an array of sustainable fish and shellfish. Guests can choose from the spread and have it grilled or pan-fried. We opted to have grilled barracuda fish, shrimps, and sand lobsters. We even went for a second round of the latter. It was that good!

Nothing but smiles for a good seafood dinner! 

The dessert spread is not that huge, but the offerings are enough to satisfy my sweet tooth. Having a heavy flavorful seafood meal, I actually think that a dessert with a clean and simple finish is the right way to go.
