Check out Maison Mathis Dusit Thani’s new midnight menu



Maison Mathis, a 24-hour restaurant in the Dusit Thani hotel on Sheikh Zayed Road, has launched a new Midnight Menu. The à la carte midnight menu has a sharing theme and features signature items from the chef. On the lighter side, there’s a baby spinach and feta cheese tarte and an Asian-inspired chicken and spinach salad with mushrooms and Parmesan. For heartier mains, you’ll find options such as chicken and beef burgers served in brioche buns with a side of Belgian fries; Scottish wild salmon with sautéed spinach, sea kale and caper gremolata; and a classic fish and chips. To assuage late night sugar cravings, opt for the Belgian waffles with mixed berries, whipped cream, Nutella and maple syrup or try the Parisian French toast served with homemade vanilla ice cream.

The midnight madness also has a set menu option for couples. Starters on the set menu include avocado and prawns and a traditional tarte flambé. Among the options for mains are a crispy sea bream served with Provençal vegetables; a cornfed baby chicken with mustard, herbs, lemon and spices; aubergine with goat cheese; and a mushroom risotto. In addition to the waffles and French toast dessert options, the set menu also offers a panna cotta.

Maison Mathis Dusit Thani's midnight menus are available nightly from 10pm to 1:30am. The two-course set menu includes two select house beverages for Dh150 per person. 04 335 7769, bonjour@mm-dusit.com

Teachers' pay - what you need to know

Pay varies significantly depending on the school, its rating and the curriculum. Here's a rough guide as of January 2021:

- top end schools tend to pay Dh16,000-17,000 a month - plus a monthly housing allowance of up to Dh6,000. These tend to be British curriculum schools rated 'outstanding' or 'very good', followed by American schools

- average salary across curriculums and skill levels is about Dh10,000, recruiters say

- it is becoming more common for schools to provide accommodation, sometimes in an apartment block with other teachers, rather than hand teachers a cash housing allowance

- some strong performing schools have cut back on salaries since the pandemic began, sometimes offering Dh16,000 including the housing allowance, which reflects the slump in rental costs, and sheer demand for jobs

- maths and science teachers are most in demand and some schools will pay up to Dh3,000 more than other teachers in recognition of their technical skills

- at the other end of the market, teachers in some Indian schools, where fees are lower and competition among applicants is intense, can be paid as low as Dh3,000 per month

- in Indian schools, it has also become common for teachers to share residential accommodation, living in a block with colleagues

Pakistanis at the ILT20

The new UAE league has been boosted this season by the arrival of five Pakistanis, who were not released to play last year.

Shaheen Afridi (Desert Vipers)
Set for at least four matches, having arrived from New Zealand where he captained Pakistan in a series loss.

Shadab Khan (Desert Vipers)
The leg-spin bowling allrounder missed the tour of New Zealand after injuring an ankle when stepping on a ball.

Azam Khan (Desert Vipers)
Powerhouse wicketkeeper played three games for Pakistan on tour in New Zealand. He was the first Pakistani recruited to the ILT20.

Mohammed Amir (Desert Vipers)
Has made himself unavailable for national duty, meaning he will be available for the entire ILT20 campaign.

Imad Wasim (Abu Dhabi Knight Riders)
The left-handed allrounder, 35, retired from international cricket in November and was subsequently recruited by the Knight Riders.
