Sandwiched between a one-kilometre private beach and verdant gardens, Shangri-La Al Beri Abu Dhabi certainly has a lot to offer. The luxury hotel boasts 213 rooms and suites, six private villas and 160 serviced apartments, as well as seven restaurants and bars and an infinity pool. Guests can also enjoy various spa treatments at the Chi health spa. On the ground floor of the hotel, you'll find Sofra Bld, an elegant yet relaxed restaurant that serves breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner to hungry guests and diners. Booking a private meal, however, is perhaps the best way to enjoy the delicious food on offer here. Whether it's a wedding breakfast, corporate lunch meeting or birthday dinner, you'll be extremely well-taken care of at Sofra Bld.
If you choose breakfast as your private meal at Sofra Bld, you can enjoy a great set menu of international dishes. Start off with a baker's basket of Danish pastries and breads with a selection of jams and butter, before moving on to heartier options. Choose how you like your eggs: poached, boiled, scrambled, over-easy or in an omelette, and they will arrive accompanied by chicken sausage, beef bacon, hash brown, grilled tomatoes and sliced cheese. You can also enjoy some foul medames with freshly cooked falafel, dried figs and apricots, or banana oatmeal with sauteed mushrooms.
Later in the day, you'll find a huge selection of international dishes. As such you might start with a Thai papaya salad, hot and cold mezze platter or Greek salad - the choice is yours. Mains include Indian options such as biryani and dhal makani, as well as more Western dishes like sandwiches, burgers and wraps. For something a little more Italian, try on of the stone-baked pizzas, fresh out the oven, before finishing with a sweet treat like buttermilk panna cotta or a seasonal fruit platter.
