Christmas Day problem 1: It takes one person on average four hours to cook a Christmas dinner…(that’s a lot of time in the kitchen)
Christmas Day problem 2: No one wants to be stuck in the kitchen on Christmas Day, while the rest of your Dubai family are drinking too much and getting competitive over Monopoly
Christmas Day problem 3: The end product of your kitchen-slaving never tastes quite like your mums.
We’re not going to preach to you about what Christmas is about, but what it’s not about is being stuck in a hot kitchen all day
So the Eloquent Elephant has come to the rescue
By providing a slap up turkey with all the trimmings right to the comfort of your home. The pretty stylish gastropub located in the Taj, Business Bay are skilled in the art of the roast dinner (they’ve only been practicing every Friday, Saturday and Sunday since they opened last year) so it’s safe to say, if you choose these guys to provide your Christmas dinner, you’ll be in safe hands.
Here’s the deal:
The offer is available until Christmas Day and it will cost AED 895. The turkey comes with duck fat roasties, roast root veg, braised red cabbage, maple glazed Brussels sprouts with turkey chorizo, broccoli, grilled beans, gravy, bread and cranberry sauce and it even comes with an assortment of Christmas puddings!
They require 48 hours notice to prep the bird, so keep that in mind if you’re booking.
