One of our favourite parts of Abu Dhabi Culinary Season…

Some of the city’s top restaurants have signed up for a new round of Chef’s Table.

A central ingredient of Abu Dhabi Culinary Season’s recipe for success, the format sees select capital kitchens assembling limited time three and four-course menus for deliciously accessible prices.

These special cur-eat-ed kitchen talent tours will be available across the emirate until November 27, 2021.

Compliments to the chefs

Stand out menu dishes available during this foodie fiesta include the butter-garlic wonderland of Fouquet’s burgundy snails; theatrically presented stir-fry wild prawns at Hakkasan; the gooey fondant thrills of Li Beirut’s cheese kunafa; a royal and rich dal makhani at Martabaan; and special seekh tacos at Moksh.

You’ll find Raclette’s crudo classic beef tartare on their menu; one of Buddha Bar’s curated plates is limeno ceviche; Catch, is splicing sugar, spice and all things nice through their kumquat chicken main; Coya is serving up signature platter; and Cyan Brasserie is making French autumnal staple, duck leg confit available on their menu.


Try Niri’s sesame soya beef; Punjab Grill’s kolhapuri mutton rassa; Sayad’s incredible sundried tomato ravioli; Sole’s beeting salmon; Terra Secca’s tiramisu; a connoisseur’s collection of sushi and sashimi at Tori No Su; smoked guacamole at VaKaVa; and a luxe little eggplant parmigiana at Villa Toscana.
