Choosing where to go and what to order in a city with as many options as Dubai can be an overwhelming task – I’ve been there!
Let me help make short work of that by sharing with you (in my opinion) the must eat dishes out there in the Dubai dining wilderness. These are dishes that for me, were love at first bite. Make sure you bookmark this list as I’ll keep updating it with the most delicious dishes in Dubai as I discover them. Is there a dish you think I should try? Get in touch with me here!
Pan Fried Gyoza at Royal China, DIFC – 35dhs
Insanely good gyoza can be yours for the bargain price of 35 for 3pcs at Royal China. Is one plate enough? Probably not! I can’t remember the last time I was this blown away biting into a dumpling (Din Tai Fung excluded).
Read all about these gyoza and more about Royal China here.
A Trio of Delicacies at Gaucho
Cheesy cornbread, corn empanadas and beef short ribs – simply attend a Gaucho Friday brunch, and just like a foodie Pokemon Go, you can catch ’em all. Plus, they let you order seconds. And thirds, if you’re a world champion eater.
Duck Waffles at Craft Cafe, D3 – 48dhs
SO good. Yet potentially SO bad for you. I don’t even care, screw the diet – these are fab. I mean, DUCK. Plus WAFFLES. Just trust me on this one. An orange sauce (which I’ll admit I am not usually a fan of) finishes this dish of with a touch of sweet citrus perfection. Delish.
Crispy Eggplant & Burrata with Yuzu Truffle at Wakame – 80
Oozy burrata, plus eggplant with a crispy outer and gooey interior…rich, decadent, delicious fusion done right. Did I mention burrata?
Australian Wagyu Boneless Rib Eye at The Rib Room, Emirates Towers – 595dhs
Best. Steak. Ever. End of story.
Slow Cooked Lamb at Vanitas, Palazzo Versace – 190dhs
Tender, juicy meat that delicately coats your palate in just the right amount of lamb fat in the best way imaginable. Smooth, sweet NZ lamb flavour all the way.
Chaat Trolley at Tresind
A food art masterpiece, this is a dish that tastes as delicious as it looks. A symphony of tastes and textures, this is a dish best suited for a party of four – or a very hungry twosome perhaps! You can’t visit Tresind and bypass this unique creation, it’s a must order. Every time.
Truffle Vegetable Tempura at Tesoro & Treehouse
So good, I once at three plates of it. They were small plates, ok? Not my proudest moment but this is a dish the Tesoro kitchen should certainly be proud of. Not pictured: the piece de resistance, the truffle mayo goo that makes this dish heavenly. Deep fried + truffle? Bliss!
Cachapas at Toro Toro, Grosvenor House
Pancakes with cheese, sour cream, and meat? It sounds so weird but tastes so good, you’ll be fighting over the last piece. Check out the brunch for unlimited reorders, if your stomach is up to the challenge!
I call it, ‘AZocado on Rice’, Katana
This is a dish with no name, not even on the menu, but served to me at Katana and it’s so good. Especially if you love avocado. And rice.
Do you know of a dish that belongs on this list?
