Default Pork ban and Brauhaus Abu Dhabi

Hows this restaurant doing with the limitation on pork now? Seeing as they pretty much only cook pork related food. Is that still in effect?

I forget the name of the hotel its in, the one connected to AD mall.

Its the Beach Rotana hotel fyi.

If anyone ever is going to stay there, make sure you get a room in the tower, as they are much nicer and spacier opposed to the ones in the old wing which are cramped and outdated.

I think Brauhaus banned pork way before the UAE pork ban!

When Brauhaus closed its doors last year during Ramadan once it reopened they had a revisd menu and the prices had increased considerably.

Shame really, their mixed grill was spot on but went from about 60AED to nearly 100AED, I believe the decision to stop serving pork was down to the Rotana but maybe this was 'forced' by the local authorities

I never said they stopped serving pork after Ramadan, I said the prices increased!

The pork ban was short lived in AD. Spinneys and Abelas pork sections closed for a couple of days but it's business as usual now.

Does way before imean September last year EUC?

The rumour was and I hasten to add rumour, that they stopped serving pork in March

The last time I ate there and had pork was UAE national day.

I stand corrected if I am wrong!
