Plonked right in the centre of Downtown Dubai, this wonderfully placed restaurant is not only found at one of the city’s most convenient addresses, it’s also one of the area’s best spots for a meal and drinks.
Starters bring a well-rounded selection that includes plates of crispy calamari with lime aioli, prawn tempura in a miso marinade and chicken tacos topped with sauteed vegetables, sour cream, cheese, and guacamole. Vegetarians have the choice of corn ribs in a paprika marinade topped with feta cheese and a sweet and spicy sauce or a pizza made on a naan bread, topped with cheese, tomato sauce, ricotta, mozzarella, and fresh basil. If you prefer something to share with the table, there’s a cold cuts and cheese platter presented with gherkins, olives, and breads.
For mains, the burger of the month is a popular choice, a serve that changes regularly (as the name suggests). Elsewhere there are classics like mac and cheese, fish and chips or ribs served with fries and slaw. A slightly more unusual choice is presented via the butter chicken, that is rich with cream and served with rice and a homemade cheesy naan bread. Also, the poutine is a must-have if you’re a meat lover. Chips are topped with slow cooked brisket and covered in a rich gravy plus a cheddar cheese sauce.
If you have a sweet tooth then it’s hard to look past the dessert section which is packed with tried and tested favourites from a chocolate brownies with ice cream to a bread and butter pudding with salted caramel sauce. Our favourite though has to be the banoffee tart that is piled high with banana, caramel and vanilla ganache.
The drinks list completes the offering with plenty of craft beers, high end spirits, cocktails and soft serves.
