Sponsored: Going for dinner at OPA just got even tastier…

We already know how great the food is at exciting Greek eatery, OPA Dubai. The authentic Athenian menu comes packed full of flavour and a freshness that keeps you coming back for more. That’s why we’re delighted to hear there’s been some new additions to the Mediterranean offering.

Don’t be surprised if you find yourself mentally transported to a faraway Grecian island once you step into OPA’s traditional blue and white setting. Everything from the delicate flowers trailing along the walls, to the zorba dancing waiters, is designed to bring the beauty of Greece to Dubai.

On the new menu you’ll find a tempting selection of traditional dishes including a moreish Greek flatbread called Ladenia. Pizza fans will love the spiced aubergine infused with sun-dried tomatoes and seasoned peppers, topped with tasty labneh and sesame seeds.

Seafood is a stellar part of OPA’s extensive menu, with highlights such as the seafood linguine which comes packed with tiger prawns, tender calamari and fresh octopus, all deliciously churned in harissa butter and tomato sauce. Alternatively, we recommend the Josper grilled salmon, which comes with a rich cauliflower purée with roasted fennel cream sauce.

OPA hasn’t forgotten about the vegetarian community either, with a super-delicious Imam Bayildi now added to the menu, complete with roasted aubergines, caramelised onions, roasted pine nuts and yogurt. Yum!

Finally, the best way to finish off a fantastic feast? With a bit of plate smashing. Grab your crockery and get ready to let off some steam with the whole restaurant on their feet. Guests will be treated to a special zorba performance by the staff too.
