SMK (Smoked Meat Kitchen) to open doors at Dubai's La Mer
SMK (Smoked Meat Kitchen) is set to open at Jumeirah’s La Mer this month.
SMK serves slow-cooked meat smoked over English oak and topped off with homemade rubs to season the cuts. The cooking process is by smoking, rather than direct grilling.
The signature dish from SMK will be the brisket bun, served with pickled red chilli, served in a specially baked bun, while those that prefer a little more meat, can opt for the dry aged beef ribs, topped off with pickled red chilli.
The team at SMK have been trained at London’s Smokestak, under the tutelage of David Carter. Luke Tully will take over the reins at SMK Dubai, after working with Carter for the last three years.
The space has an outdoor seating area and has elements of the smoker train as its influence. The natural and minimal interior also includes furnishings which are simplistic and urban in look and feel.
The menu prices start from AED 35 (US$9.5), for BBQ glazed smoked chicken wings with a blue cheese dip, and AED 90 ($24.5) for a smoked beef rib with celery coleslaw.
SMK Dubai will be open seven days a week from 12pm to 12am.
