Serving Contemporary Asian cuisine, Le Ten is conveniently located at Dubai Mall and it has been one of my favorite go-to places for a scrumptious Asian modern cooking. Dining here gives you a good spot to enjoy the great view of Souk Al Bahar and is perfect for a romantic/ family dinner, especially in the winter season.
I was fortunate enough to get an invite in my first ever Zomato Meetup where I got to meet a lot of people who share the same interest as I do and who wouldn't mind taking pictures first before taking a bite on those good food being served right in front of you.
These were all the food served in our table:
Smoked Duck Spring Roll - Deep Fried Spring Rolls with smoked duck and cheese filling.
The smoked duck and cheese were a very good combination to start with. The duck had a very good taste and texture which complemented the milky cheese pretty well.
Lettuce Roll with Japanese Sesame Dressing - Butterhead lettuce rolled with shaved japanese cucumber served on a bed of ice with a rich sesame dip.
I loved how this simple dish stood out on the table. The lettuce was crunchy and the dressing had a strong but good peanut taste which I personally loved.
Assorted Wanton and Dumplings - A plate of various dumpling that is served with chili oil and black vinegar.
Though, the taste of the dumpling was not that bad. I find it normal and ordinary. It had very little meat inside and feels like eating plain flour. Better to skip this one.
RICE AND NOODLES:
Classic Chao Mien - Classic noodles stir fried with some dark soy sauce and is served with shredded carrots.
A simple classic soy noodle dish to try. I find it bland and lacking with flavor.
Original Singapore Fried Bee Hoon - Singapore style stir fried rice with curry powder served with diced prawn, chicken, and bean sprout.
I find this dish a bit weird. I personally didn't like this one. In my opinion, you can skip this one.
Devil Fried Rice - Stir fried rice that is mixed with diced sirloin beef, chili, pepper, and spring onion in black pepper sauce.
I liked this rice dish a lot and is a good pair of your mains.
Popping Seafood Fried Rice - Egg Fried Rice with diced prawns, crab meat, and tobiko caviar.
Seafood served in a cup of rice would probably best describe this dish. A very good one that is highly recommended for all seafood lovers.
Szechuan Kungpo Chicken Fillet with Cashew Nuts - chicken fillet that is stir fried with dried chili and cashew nuts.
I find this dish bland and lacks the spiciness and flavor. This can be skipped in your orders.
Pineapple Chicken - chicken cubes in a sweet and sour sauce that are mixed with pineapple, chili, tomato sauce, and onions.
I am personally not a fan of sweet and sour sauce that is why i didn't quite enjoy this one.
Espresso Chicken - chunks of crispy chicken coated with a special fragrant espresso coffee and topped with almond flakes.
A surprisingly good dish to try. The taste of the espresso was not overpowering and it complimented the chicken so well.
Le Ten Mongolian Beef - fried sirloin beef slices that are mixed with a sweet pepper sauce.
It had a nice crispy texture but the sweet pepper sauce tasted just on the average.
Seared Imperial Beef - Pan-seared marinated beef fillet served on a bed of baby asparagus.
This is one of the best beef dishes that I have tried. It is very tender and juicy. The beef is well marinated. Highly recommended to try.
Wasabi Prawn - Crispy fresh deshelled prawns with wasabi mayo sitting on a cubed watermelon.
Indeed, it's a very intriguing dish to sample. They say that the best way to consume it is by first eating the prawns and when you feel the spiciness then you consume the watermelon. I highly recommend everyone to try this dish out.
Curry Mayo Prawn - Crispy deshelled prawn served with curry mayo sauce and sprinkled with crushed cashew nuts.
This goes to the top spot of my favorite dishes served in this resto. The sweet curry mayo sauce is very delicious and the huge prawn was completely satisfying. A huge thumbs up for this dish.
Pan-seared Salmon with Thai Lime Chili - Thai inspired pan seared salmon with a side of lime and Thai chili sauce.
Perfectly crispy salmon with a hint of lime. One of the good salmon that I have tried so far in the city.
Baked Honey Cod Fish - Freshly baked cod fish marinated with honey, served with baked cherry tomatoes and baby french beans.
A thick slice of cod fish that is baked to perfection and marinated with honey. By just looking at the dish you can see how fresh the fish was. The taste was superb and the texture of the meat is very soft and smooth.
Ma Po Tofu - Golden Brown bean curd topped with minced chicken, pepper, chili and mushrooms sitting on a nicely cooked spicy sauce.
This is also one amazing dish. I was amazed how the simple ingredients used turned out to be a great dish.
Baked Broccoli with Cheese - stir fried broccoli baked with mozzarella cheese.
I liked how simple and beautiful this dish looks. I loved the combination of mozzarella cheese and broccoli.
Chap Chye - A mix of broccoli, mushrooms, baby bok choy, carrot, cabbage, green pepper and baby asparagus stir fried in oyster sauce and sesame oil.
In our place, this dish is called chop suey. Basically, it is similar to taste and texture but the vegetables used were somehow different. Though still a good dish for vegetarians.
Red velvet Frachiller (left) - Red velvet, chocolate, cashew nuts and milk.
A dessert put in a glass. Your typical red velvet chocolate shake. Though it has less sweetness as i expected but maybe not a good choice for this type of food being served. But the taste is good.
Mojitomato (right) - Red berry Fruit mix, Carribean, basil leaves, lime, soda water and cherry tomato.
My favorite drink here. I love the combination of lime, berry and soda water. A very refreshing drink to try.
The best cake that i have tried is the Honey Cake and Lemon Cheesecake. Both had a light and delectable taste.
Overall, I really enjoyed my experience at Le Ten. This is a very good place to sample modernized Chinese cuisine.
