We all need a place to unwind after a long day in the hustle and bustle of the city and what better place to enjoy some delicious food and drinks in a relaxed environment, than The Backyard at Steigenberger Hotel Business Bay, which re-opens the doors to its backyard garden this October offering the best of food and drink found in the streets of Bangkok and Thailand along with their very own specialties and authentic flavours.
The Backyard is one of the most unique street-art inspired urban outdoor spaces in the city, located in Business Bay with stunning views of the Dubai Water Canal. Renowned graffiti artist Rami gave the space personality with his creative murals and street graffiti decorations. Authentic Thai food coming from one of the best Thai kitchens in Dubai is served from a food truck among other food options to guests and the resident DJ’s set the vibe and atmosphere in the urban hangout, making it the perfect relaxed evening spot.
Thai food is extremely cleansing for the body as lots of natural herbs and spices are used in the dishes, which is perfect to get rid of those unwanted toxins. The Tum Yum soup; the hot and sour soup with chicken or prawns, straw mushrooms, chilli paste and Thai herbs, is regarded as one of the best to help detox the body along with The Lady Fingers which is great for those with high blood pressure. Chef Anan Tumya has taken the authentic Thai cuisine and has twisted the dishes to create his very own special versions such as Neua Khiuk Thiray or crispy fried marinated beef to creamy coconut soup with roasted duck to delicious desserts; Khao Mea tod and Thai banana fritters served with coconut ice cream.
