Meena Cafe, Port Zayed - Zelan Construction Site serves Malaysian food!

Port Zayed in Abu Dhabi is the location of Meena Cafe, which is part of Zelan's project site. Hmmm, I realised that both the Reem Island and Meena Plaza projects, operated by Malaysian building giants, have cafes serving Malaysian food. God Bless Malaysia!

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 28 Asia Pulse - Zelan Bhd (KLSE:2283) on Thursday said its subsidiary, Zelan Holdings (M) Sdn. Bhd, through its joint venture with Al Ambia Sdn. Bhd., has won a AED903.7 million (US$246.2 million) contract to build the "Meena Plaza" in Abu Dhabi.
The 70:30 Zelan-Al-Ambia joint venture on Wednesday received a letter of intent from Tamouh Investments LLC for the project, it said in a statement to Bursa Malaysia.
This is where Lee operates his kitchen, deeeelicious food in the middle of the desert!
Impressive stuff ... call in advance and you can have ROAST DUCK! We didn't order in advance, but were lucky enough to have one!


"Wan Tan" Mee - Me and KCL's hubby, Mr L, had a big debate about WHY this was called Wan Tan Mee ... We figured eventually, that even though there were no wan tan's served with this noodle dish, the noodles were of the "wan tan mee" type!


Ah... bbG and me liked this dish, Hokkien Mee Hoon!
Sweet and sour Pork ... oops, Sweet and Sour Chicken lah :-) This place is HALAL , but you would hardly know it ... really good.

And its adjacent to the fish/vegetable souk, in fact the restaurant is across the road from the Iranian shops which sell pots and pans and plastic goods.

When you are in that area, just look out for the MEENA DEVELOPMENT construction site. Good luck!!
