Two nights, four hands, seven courses…

Two of Dubai’s most exciting chefs are joining forces for what promises to be a cracking collaboration next week. On Monday March 8 and Tuesday March 9, Chef Akmal Anuar (of 3 Fils and Goldfish fame) will be teaming up with Adwait Anantwar of Mohalla to create a seven-course menu of Indian-meets-Japanese dishes.

Dubai Design District restaurant Mohalla will be the setting for the multi-course feast. Over seven courses, then chefs will mesh the street food favourites of India and Japan into a flavour-packed menu that celebrates the ingredients, cooking techniques and culinary heritage of each country.

In creating the tasting menu, Akmal and Adwait promise “no gimmicks to be seen, no dry ice in sight.” Instead, we’re told to expect dishes that you’ve never seen or tasted before, that are sure to excite the palate.

While the menu is being kept under wraps, we can only imagine what border-hopping combinations the chefs have come up with. Sushi roll meets seekh kebab roll, perhaps? The skewered love child of tandoori and yakitori? Or the crunch of kaarage chicken crossed with calamari koliwada?

Tickets to the Four Hands dinner at Mohalla are priced at Dhs400 for seven courses. As seats are limited, be sure to book in advance.
