Shake up your usual weeknight plans with these new dishes…
If you’re a regular diner in Dubai, then chances are you’ve sampled many of the menus on offer across the city. In an emirate full of foodies, Dubai restaurants need to be a step ahead to keep us interested. In light of a new month, a few of our favourite spots have revealed brand new dishes waiting to be tried.
Here are five Dubai restaurants with new menus.
This one’s for the truffle-lovers among us – we know there’s a lot of you. Quirk Italian spot Torno Subito has launched a tasting menu dedicated to all things truffley. Il Tartufo is a tasting menu designed to be shared, offering five courses of dishes from poached egg, to warm focaccia, handmade tagliolino pasta, wagyu beef and more. The experience is priced at Dhs499 per person, but throughout February if you order two, they’ll throw in a free bottle of wine.
Torno Subito, W Dubai – The Palm, Palm Jumeirah, Sun to Thurs 6.30pm to 11.30pm, Fri & Sat 12.30pm to 11.30pm, Dhs499. Tel: (0)4 245 5800. @tornosubitodubai
