Roast Duck and more tai-chau dishes in Abu Dhabi - Meena Cafe

Meena Cafe :-) Humble, good value, Malaysian and damn good. Nuff' said!

Located: Zelan construction site (Yes!), near Port Zayed
Opening hours: Daily except Friday, opened for lunch and dinner


I had to rub my eyes ... remind me I was in the middle of a desert ... Yes, ROAST DUCK ala Malaysia / Hong Kong ... in Abu Dhabi!


Meena Cafe's version of "Wan Tan Mee" ... Actually its wantan-mee noodles with minced pork. Very popular!


The sweet and sour chicken was delicious!


My personal favourite ... Hokkien fried Meehoon!
Good taste, lots of wok-hei. Nice job, Chef Ah Lee!
Here's what Zelan is doing in the area, as read in malaysiapropertynews.com
ZELAN Bhd's wholly-owned subsidiary has been awarded a 925.3 million dirham (RM801.779 million) contract for package 2 of the Meena Plaza construction in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE).
In a statement, Zelan said Zelan Holdings (M) Sdn Bhd and its joint venture partner Al Ambia Sdn Bhd received the award from Meena Holdings and they have 30 months to complete the project.The project will not have material impact on the earnings for its financial year ending March 31, 2008 but is expected to contribute positively to future group earnings, it said.
This contract will further enhance Zelan's participation in the construction and infrastructure development of the Gulf region, particularly in the UAE, it added.The Meena Plaza is the third building construction project for Zelan in the region. One is the Al-Reem Island project in Abu Dhabi in which it is in a consortium with IJM Construction Sdn Bhd, Sunway Builders Sdn Bhd and LFE Engineering Sdn Bhd. The other is the Sidra Tower project in Dubai. Zelan-Al Ambia is a 70:30 joint venture set up to undertake the mixed development project.
Zelan, which has been leveraging successfully on its ability to work as a consortium partner to other international players, also has a significant presence in the infrastructure construction sector in the Gulf region.
