Sammach

You’ve fancied him for ages, but there’s one big problem – he’s your best friend’s boyfriend. However she’s out of town and you’ve got no conscience worth mentioning, so you decide to pounce. The key, however, is secrecy – you need somewhere out of the way where you won’t be recognised. Get yourself down the the hidden gem that is the Sammach fish restaurant in the Beach Centre on Jumeirah Beach Road. Tucked away at the back of the mall, Sammach is an attractive, nautically-themed eatery whose décor consists of fishing trip photos and a big-screen TV showing an endless loop of natural history vids. It’s also got some of the best fresh seafood in town, at more than reasonable prices – your dinner date will browse the entrées with hungry glee, unaware that there’s a hidden agenda at work. Get in his good books from the word go by ordering some fantastic fish tajen, a wildly tasty mix of thick tahina and onion sauce with flakes of tender white flesh. A platter of sautéed potatoes with a bite of garlic and coriander and some flash-fried seafood spring rolls would also be in order, as would some ultra-light calamari curls with a moreish scented mayonnaise. As he digs into the delicious starters, work your clever magic with his mind, sowing the seeds of doubt about his loved one and making your own interest plainly felt. Pick your main courses from a trough of ice by the open kitchen – a pair of snappers, a handfull of tiger prawns and perhaps a nice pomfret or two, grilled with a squeeze of lemon and served up with some adorable dipping sauces (hot, tartar, garlic cream and lemon) and plenty of french fries. Pollute your date’s mind yet further on the subject of his feckless partner, and let him have the last garlic-laced prawn. By the time you’ve worked your way through some Lebanese sweets and swept him off for post-dinner drinks at neighbouring Sho Cho’s, you’ll be well on the way to thieving your best friend’s man.
