As we tear into the busiest time of year in the UAE, with shows and stage shows of different varieties all over you look, the nightclub of The Act is the ideal approach to kick things off.
The restaurant and theater has switched up its putting forth on weeknights (Monday-Wednesday), offering a stage show timed nearby your sustenance — yes, its supper theater, and I exceedingly propose you bring your ceviche with a side of tumbling in the not so distant future.
Shows change like clockwork, and presently running is Showtime!, which takes you in the background as some at first hapless emotional wannabes attempt to rescue a stage show. It’s excellent “the-show-must-go-on” fun, with high-kicking moving young ladies in fishnets and leg warmers, a brash theater chief, furtively skilled stagehands passing on to show off their best stuff and a some crowd cooperation.
There are snickers and in addition wheezes — particularly from the dazzling male-female adagio couple, Naomi and Renaldo, who hone their moves by your table, and from the Chinese tumbler, Kai Hou, (I will say no more for fear that I destroy the numerous astonishments).
The show is in a few demonstrations, guaranteeing the hold up staff can convey your courses to the table amid the recesses. Everything streams easily, and you will have a lot of opportunities to talk to your tablemates about the awesome gymnastics amid the night (I am taking a few aches to clarify this, in light of the fact that this is not your normal supper — however one you truly ought to have a go at).
The menu has changed just a little since The Act opened a year ago, and that is great — the present day Peruvian sustenance was at that point amazing, with no requirement for dhef Roberto Segura Gonzales to fiddle excessively. A champion for me were the aubergine carpaccio to begin, which accompanies delightful, firm quinoa (yes, it can be tasty!). Ceviche is an absolute necessity attempt, nonetheless you feel about crude fish, particularly the tart sweet mango-coconut-salmon. For mains, a smooth, soupy hot potato side is unordinary, however I adored the pops of halloumi cheddar. The duck is a don’t miss — soggy and delicate, with ultra-fresh skin.
The best part? Supper is individually (with set menus from Dh320) and there’s no additional charge for the show — importance you get a personal, Cirque de Soleil-style execution at the cost of a decent meal.
