World’s first Arab pit master Hattem Mattar opens The Farm House in Dubai

The homegrown farm-to-table barbecue concept is in Dubai’s Souk Madinat Jumeirah

Known as the world’s first Arab pit master, Hattem Mattar has opened his long awaited concept, The Farm House.

Welcoming meat-lovers for an exceptional barbecue experience in a rooftop setting, The Farm House will serve up an extensive menu of smoked cuisine cooked entirely over a fire pit. 

The homegrown concept specialises in smoked and barbecued meats

With signature dishes including brisket and pastrami, The Farm House will serve up a menu that includes cast iron-grilled scallops in a lemon and lime oil with wilted greens; smoked duck eggs served with veal bacon; white sturgeon caviar and egg yolk mousse, and slow-smoked brisket mandi.

Substantial mains for sharing include ‘bouquet de boeuf’ featuring USDA prime rib and smoked bone marrow with tomato jam, chimichurri, crème fraiche and brioche buns; peri peri pineapple chicken served with southern style rice, and a reverse seared tomahawk in a sweet heat glaze with coloured potato chips.


To satisfy the sweet toothed, desserts include the delicious cast iron-grilled banana with peanut butter ice-cream; smoking crepes served with dulce de leche, date sugar and candied walnuts, and bone marrow crème brûlée infused with yuzu and milk ‘n’ cookies served with a glass of milk.

Completing the experience and adding to the ambiance  are cocktails created by mixologists and eclectic beats from the resident DJ.

The Farm House is open from 6pm to 12am Monday to Thursday, and 12pm to 12am Friday to Saturday. For more information, call 00971 4 432 3232 or email
