Live it up large in true South American style! La Carnita serves up a tasty mix of tacos, churros, beers and cocktails, along with killer music and edgy interiors that are guaranteed to transport guests across the globe. Located on the promenade level of the Intercontinental Hotel in Dubai Marina, this dynamic restaurant is the perfect place to celebrate with friends over vibrant plates and exciting cocktails.
The interiors have been designed by some of the best street style artists in the city, boasting a cool, urban aesthetic that really comes alive at night. Bare brick walls are offset by black and white artworks, while neon signage, trailing foliage and red lighting brings the vibes of South American nightlife to the UAE.
Take a seat at one of its red banquets and indulge in a selection of flavour-packed dishes. Starters include a range of hot and cold dishes, from guacamole and chips or sea bass ceviche, to cheesy nachos and scorpion wings. Main dishes tend to lean towards the meaty kind, with the likes sesame lamb chops, ribeye steak with salsa picante and spiced chicken fajitas all up for grabs. Don’t miss its taco list, which spans a selection of meat, fish and veggie options. Choose from Mexican chorizo with habanero aioli, Baja shrimp with chipotle hot sauce, and crispy cauliflower with charred pepper sauce. There are four sweet options to finish, but the jewel in its crown is its freshly-made churros with cajeta sauce.
La Carnita runs a wealth of offers and deals throughout the week, from a killer weekday happy hour to Taco Tuesdays (unlimited tacos with margaritas for a fixed price). It also serves brunch on Saturdays with the option to add bottomless booze if you fancy.
