At neighborhood gastropub, The Nine, located at Sofitel Dubai The Obelisk, guests are invited to watch sporting matches, while enjoying culinary favorites. Serving up dishes such as Fish & Chips and Saturday Roast, now Chef Michael O’Shea has curated a menu celebrating one of the nation’s national treasures – the Great British Pie Menu.
Knives and forks at the ready? This is homemade comfort food at its finest with classics such as the Shepard’s Pie, cooked with slow-braised pulled lamb shoulder and a layer of buttery mash on top, as well as Steak & Ale Pie complete with homemade flaky pastry. Those with a preference for poultry can feast on the Chicken & Tarragon Pie, baked with light, crumbly short crust pastry along with tasty baby leeks and mash on the side.
If that doesn’t tickle your fancy, you can always choose from traditional meaty pies like Steak & Kidney Suet Pudding, served with a rich beef sauce and caramelised onions, or try a veggie option such as the Potato & Blue Cheese Pie, using a great British cheese ‘Northern Blue’ in a buttery short crust pastry served with broccoli puree.
Now, what’s better than pie for dinner? Pie for dessert! Top off the meal with some not-so-humble Apple & Cider Pie for two, just like nan used to make, and served with a dollop of cheeky vanilla ice cream.
The Nine Pie Menu is available from March 1-31, from 7pm onwards.
