Another newbie in DIFC, a seventh serving of BBQ bites and a 12-hour revamp welcomes a new hotpot spot…

From wallet-friendly dinner deals perfect for pairs, to unique dining experiences you wouldn’t get anywhere else, we’re spoiled for choice when it comes to dining out in Dubai.

And if you’re looking for somewhere fresh to head to this weekend, we’ve rounded up three spots we reckon you won’t want to miss out on.

From a brand new restaurant making its debut in DIFC, to a 12-hour revamp that’s bringing a new hotpot spot to Dubai Parks and Resorts, and a seventh serving of a casual chain, here are three restaurants to check out this weekend.

The brand new: Fogo de Chao

Brazilian steakhouse Fogo De Chao has opened its first Dubai location in Central Park Towers, adding to DIFC’s ever-expanding dining scene. It’s got a great pre-dinner outdoor terrace with a separate bar, and inside is split into a lounge on one side and restaurant with shisha terrace on the other. The meat is top quality, with varying cuts served to the table, with a central cold buffet of sides to be dined on at leisure.

Fogo de Chão, Central Park Towers, DIFC, daily 12pm to 4pm, 7pm to 12am. Tel: (04) 343 8867. More info on website

The revamp: Hikina

There’s a brand new restaurant to check out at Lapita in Dubai Parks and Resorts called Hikina. The pan-Asian hotpot and dumpling house is now serving an extensive menu of flavours from the Far East. The spot, which replaces a Cantonese restaurant, is set to serve up hand-crafted dumplings, buns and sticks, with a traditional hotpot the must-try star of the show.

Hikina, Lapita, Dubai Parks and Resorts. Tel:(04) 810 9421. More info on website

The seventh serving: Barbecue Delights

Barbecue Delights has just opened a seventh branch at Ibn Battuta. It’s a casual setting that serves up some top-notch barbecue bites from around the world, with influences from the Middle East, South East Asia and beyond. It’s a buffet set-up that’s great for families – there’s a dedicated play area to keep the little ones busy.
