SMK (Smoked Meat Kitchen) is a recently opened smokehouse shack in La Mer. Located towards the northern end, not far from the white bouncy bubbles and Five Guys, SMK offers diners three shaded outdoor benches with a spectacular beachfront view. Blessed with a constant sea breeze, SMK is still okay to dine at during the day, especially if you’ve got your itsy bitsy teenie weenies on.
As its name suggests SMK is all about smoked meat, namely beef ribs and brisket. The day my family and I visited they were out of ribs so our party of four all ordered their pulled brisket buns. One word – superb! There are others in Dubai who serve equally good brisket, but none can match SMK’s beachfront ambience. And best of all, their bun are perfectly sized. We also ordered a portion of their wings, which were good too but not a patch on the pulled meat.
Service is excellent; friendly, accommodating and fast. I am already looking for excuses to go back to La Mer to try their ribs…and so should you. SMK is well worth a detour.
Waste NOT. Want NOT.
