From pink sliders to vegan Thai food…

While some of us took to creating dalgona coffee, doing puzzles and learning to play musical instruments during the lockdown, some of Dubai’s top chefs were hard at work in their kitchens creating new menus to showcase for hungry diners.

And now that Dubai is opening up, the new menus are being unveiled. So, if you’re looking to try out a new dining experience this week, here are four new menus in Dubai to check out.

Tania’s Teahouse
