Hg2 : The Hedonist


This expansive, but not expensive, collection of live cooking stations is set at the bottom of Mall of the Emirates’ Ski Dubai mountain, and its operators have wisely injected a dose of theatre into the food preparation in order to avert your gaze from the enormous dividing window and the trippy on-slope antics beyond. At weekends, there are clowns, face painting and a bouncy castle for the kids, while adults get to create hitherto unattempted taste combinations from the global fare on offer for an all-inclusive price. The concept can get a little confusing (pizza and smoothies, for some unknown reason, are excluded from the weekend Sezzam Express brunch option) but it’s all part of the sensory overload which characterises the place. Visit after, rather than before, an afternoon’s shopping: too much mud pie and marshmallow from the amazing dessert counter and you’ll be temporarily immobilised.
