There’s nothing like a bitesized delight whilst enjoying the weather, join OHLALA’s Sara Waddah on a culinary adventure at Four Seasons Hotel Bahrain Bay, for a one-of-a-kind experience.
Down through the hotel, and outside by the Pool Deck, guests are redirected to their very own pool cabana that overlooks Four Seasons Hotel Bahrain Bay’s incredible pool, beach and the skyline of the Kingdom all from one place, making it a somewhat ideal, intimate setting for a weekend rendezvous.
Cosy and semi-private, we joined the hotel on a Thursday night for the launch of the latest sushi menu that has been made available from Thursday through Saturdays throughout March, from 6pm to 11pm. Perfect to unwind and relax to, with an interesting collection of selected beverages, sushi nights at Four Seasons Hotel Bahrain Bay will undoubtedly leave your eyes gleaming with satisfaction and excitement throughout your entire visit. Presented with the special menu, there was absolutely nothing on it that we weren’t ready to try!
Starting with the Japanese Crab Salad, the freshness of the ingredients used immediately took us by surprise from our first mouthful. Comprised of loaded crab sticks, crunchy cucumbers, avocado and drizzled in a mildly spicy creamy sauce, it was love at first sight with this one. With the ingredients perfectly complementing one another. As quoted by one of the chefs we caught dashing by: “Japanese, but spicy enough to be appropriate for this part of the world”.
“Presented with the special menu, there was absolutely nothing on it that we weren’t ready to try!”
Going for the 20-piece Sushi Platter was an experience of its own! Loaded with salmon nigiri and ebi sashimi, the raw fish was not only finely prepared but also presented and assorted in a beautiful manner, making the entire culinary journey delightful.
The night was far from over and the surprises were still coming in – the platter also contained California Rolls and Shredded Crab Rolls that were authentic, expensive in taste, and delicious, all in all.
Coming back for a second round of the Shredded Crab Rolls, this was hands-down one of our favourites from the entire menu. Drizzled in spicy homemade teriyaki sauce, the crispy fried crab and grilled unagi roll combination were not only delicious but also a sight for your eyes when appreciating the craftsmanship of the unique platter. Without a doubt, a must-try!
Another one of our favourites, that slightly took us by surprise, was the Tempura Soft-Shell Crab Roll. One of the chef ’s specialities, this grand dish comprised of just soft-shell crab, avocado and crispy rice cracker – at the end of the day, simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication, which is exactly what these rolls made us feel!
All in all, Four Seasons Hotel Bahrain Bay never fails to deliver a good time, from whichever part of the hotel. With a staff that is prepared to attend to all your needs, chefs that understand the meaning of ‘for the love of good food’ and a location that’ll keep you in awe from start to end, this remains one of our favourite spots in the Kingdom that continues to surprise us with its extravagance!
