All hail JBR's newest meatery: The Mighty Quinn's
Is there anything more manly than a plateful of slow-cooked smoked meat? We don't think so.
But unfortunately, thanks to pesky (and quite frankly reasonable) fire safety laws in the UAE, the ability to fire up the BBQ and get to grillin' is reserved solely for those who live in villas. But apartment-dwellers no longer need give-up meat cooked on an open fire, as a new restaurant dedicated to smoky grills is now open in JBR.
Mighty Quinn's – which is a highly-celebrated BBQ chain based out of New York – has just opened up its first Dubai restaurant, at The Walk in JBR. There's also a second location in the works, scheduled to open at The Dubai Mall later this year.
The new team is led by BBQ extraordinaire and chef, Hugh Magnum. He specialises in creating delicious dishes using the kitchen's own in-house smoker. The meat is left inside the custom-made smoker for hours to enhance its flavour, before going on a hot charcoal grill just before serving.
“Bringing the best of barbeque cooking techniques, using plenty of wood and over a long period of time, Mighty Quinn’s concept has become renowned for delivering prime cut meats cooked using its signature built-in smoker,” says the Magnum. “Using a simple and timeless approach, we incorporate the freshest ingredients, resulting in incredible food, served in a casual atmosphere.”
Apart from all manner of smoked meats and sausages, there's loads more American staples on the menu; expect spicy wings, crispy chicken sandwiches, ribs, southern chicken and tasty shakes. But, as the simplest is often the best, you can't go wrong with a juicy bit of cedar-smoked steak.
