Dine Around the world in Dubai
13 Aug 2019

Dubai has everything: dazzling malls, wild watersports and those boundless cobalt skies. But it’s the city’s global culinary scene that excites the most. With cuisine drawn from all four corners of the Earth: all-American dining, quintessentially British fare and refined Italian dishes, Dubai is a food connoisseur’s dream. Here are some of our favourite restaurants in Dubai that give a truly international flavour.

Mediterranean – Scape

Elegantly unfurling in a fan shape, seemingly floating above the crystal waters around the Burj Al Arab, Scape immerses you in all the glitz and glamour of the French Riviera. A chic dining destination with to-die-for ocean vistas, Scape serves an authentic taste of the Mediterranean, from the freshest sea bass to the daintiest madeleines with strawberries and basil sorbet. Visit before sunset to clink a perfectly-mixed sundowner.


Japanese/Argentinian – Summersalt

In what may seem an unlikely culinary alliance, Summersalt masterfully harmonises the poise and precision of Japanese cooking with the bold, unapologetic flavours of Argentina. Think plump, corn-fed chicken breast with indulgent teriyaki truffle sauce. Framed by the shimmering shores of Madinat Jumeriah’s private beach, Summersalt presents innovative fusion dining to be savoured beneath endless azure skies.

Polynesian – Sugarmash

Journey to the South Pacific by way of Sugarmash, a sun-kissed eatery bordering Jumeirah Al Naseem’s swimming pool. With laid-back Hawaiian vibes and a gentle breeze whispering ‘aloha’ upon the air, Sugarmash is the ultimate spot to unwind over seared ahi tuna or huli huli chicken. Perhaps Sugarmash’s best-kept secret is their signature mocktails like the totally-tropical Future Explorer; a refreshing muddle of pineapple, ginger beer and anise-infused honey.


British – D&A

Bringing all the personality and charm of a classic English gastropub to the exotic climes of Dubai, D&A (that’s Dhow and Anchor) showcases the best of British with a contemporary twist. D&A’s tempting menu is a roll call of comforting favourites like wild rabbit Scotch egg, fish‘n’chips, steak and, of course, Britain’s adopted signature dish, the chicken tikka curry. You’ll find the award-winning D&A at Jumeirah Beach Hotel.


Italian – Segreto

With its smart leather banquettes and gleaming marble floor, Segreto delivers Italian sophistication with a helping of la dolce vita. Timeless regional dishes are the order of the day, from asparagus risotto enriched with the creamiest Puglian cheese to lovingly-prepared antipasti made from the finest Italian produce: wafer-thin bresaola, sun-ripened olives and robiola cheese from Piedmont. Of course, no self-respecting Italian dinner would be complete without a devilish helping of tiramisu.


Latin American – La Parilla

La Parilla unites a fiesta of flavours from across Peru, Argentina and Mexico. Hearty, grill-sizzled prime-cuts, crispy, generously-stuffed tortillas and salads enlivened with feisty chimichurri sauce deliver flavours that will whisk your palate to Latin America. The carnival doesn’t stop there at La Parilla; you’ll experience vivacious live music as you gaze out at the Burj Al Arab from the 25th floor of the Jumeirah Beach Hotel.


American – Perry & Blackwelder’s Original Smokehouse

With its bare-brick walls, Route 66 signage and imposing island bar, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’re in a Texas diner at Perry & Blackwelder’s Original Smokehouse. Celebrating the smoke-infused BBQ culture of America’s Deep South, Perry & Blackwelder’s raison d’etre is magnificent meats and plenty of them: Memphis baby-back pork ribs that fall off the bone, slow-smoked mesquite brisket and skillet-roasted chicken. Go casual at Perry & Blackwelder’s, at the Souk Madinat Jumeirah.
