Loving the lobster at the Westin Abu Dhabi hotel



Those with a taste for crustacean should pay heed.

For the Fairways restaurant at the Westin hotel has just launched a weekly, all-you-can-eat feast of lobster.

On offer in the the vast buffet are a selection of Atlantic and Omani lobster prepared in 25 different ways.

While the cuisine is generally delicious, it's fair to say you may be struck with lobster fatigue by the end of your meal, vowing to avoid crustacean for some time afterwards.

Nevertheless, before this occurs, it's advisable to just settle at your table and consume, letting the lobster shells pile up around you.

Claws takes place every Wednesday at the Westin Abu Dhabi Golf Resort & Spa from 6.30pm to 11.30pm, costing Dh199 for the buffet or Dh289 with additional beverages. Call 02 616 9999 for more information.

How to wear a kandura

Dos

  • Wear the right fabric for the right season and occasion 
  • Always ask for the dress code if you don’t know
  • Wear a white kandura, white ghutra / shemagh (headwear) and black shoes for work 
  • Wear 100 per cent cotton under the kandura as most fabrics are polyester

Don’ts 

  • Wear hamdania for work, always wear a ghutra and agal 
  • Buy a kandura only based on how it feels; ask questions about the fabric and understand what you are buying
