Last week, I was in Dubai. I have been here before, but many years ago. It was crazy to see how much has changed since then.
Dubai is booming, from all over the world restaurants and clubs are setting up a location here. This provides you with the best cuisine and nightlife, in one city.
One of my all time favorite restaurants is Zuma, originally from London, but now also located in Dubai. The dishes are truly amazing, especially the salmon and tuna tartare with sevruga caviar is to die for. Zuma is a Japanese inspired restaurant, which serves sushi and sashimi, as well as dishes from the robata grill, the grilled Waygu beef melts on your tong.
People go to dinner quite late, however, because most restaurants have a bar you can spend your whole night in one place. Nevertheless, when you are still up for partying, you can just go next door, as most restaurants are located in hotels, where also all of the clubs are.
Two other great restaurants are OKKO and Coya. The former is a really cool place that turns into a club after dinner. The night I was here, a DJ was playing together with a drummer, which resulted in great party.
The later, is a South American inspired restaurant, with a menu consisting of ceviches, tiraditos and taco’s. As a main courses I had cazuelas, a hot pot, something I have never had before, but is a real must try. The restaurant is divided in different parts, and also has a members lounge, we had dinner in the ML while enjoying some live Latin music.
