Fusions by Tala hit the Bahraini restaurant scene in early 2020, following a momentous redesign led by its eponymous chef-owner. Bashmi’s vision comes to life in the Gulf Hotel, featuring warm lighting, soft wood furnishings and, most importantly, a large open kitchen for guests to see their dishes come to life. The courses are innovative reinventions of Bahraini classics – think ghoozi (lamb and aromatic rice) and bamia (a traditional stew of beef and okra). Dinner comes in à la carte form, but it’s best to put your trust in Bashmi’s capable hands and opt for the eight-course tasting menu. Look out for the signature scallops with dashi orange and brown butter, and the ‘sweet finale’ of lavender sponge, blueberry jelly, white chocolate mousse and crème brûlée. Finish the evening on a high and enjoy a post-dinner drink on the terrace.
