Toro + Ko Dubai is the fourth outpost of this successful Spanish tapas restaurant. Located in Dubai’s City Walk shopping mall, it serves up Barcelona-style tapas, allowing guests to get a taste for all kinds of Spanish favourites in the form of small sharing plates.
This fun and quirky restaurant features a Spanish street-style mural, dark wood and industrial features that give it a trendy, urban feel. On the menu you’ll find the likes of tuna tartare, patatas bravas, smoked chicken croquettes and smoked padron peppers, though if you fancy something a little bigger, the vast selection of paellas, items from the grill, and its specials - which include roasted bone marrow - are the dishes to go for. To finish your meal, you should definitely go for the Catalan crème brulee or churros with chocolate and miso dulce de leche.
To accompany your meal, there are lots of drinks to choose from. International wines are a safe option, but the signature cocktails which include the likes of sangria, espresso martinis and the Toro Bloody Mary are definitely worth a try too.
Alternatively, drop in for brunch with a spirits, Champagne, or soft drinks package. With this option, you can order the likes of grilled corn, breaded mussels and tuna tartare before moving on to a choice of paella or, if you're a carnivore at heart, the New York striploin is available too.
Since Toro + KO is located in a shopping centre, it's the ideal place to fuel up for a big day out shopping, to stop for a re-fuel mid-shopping spree or reward yourself at the end of the day before heading back to your hotel (or the beach, depending on the time of day).
This fun and laidback restaurant is the ideal place to visit if you don’t want fuss or frills but do want great quality, exciting food.
