Dine around the Mediterranean at Dubai's new tapas bar
Sponsored: We’ve got all the details on this chic new spot…
Looking to switch up where you dine out this week? Located in Downtown’s Taj Dubai, Meda, celebrates the culture and cuisine from across the Mediterranean. Drawing inspiration from the flavours of Spain, Italy and Greece, where the concept of tapas and sharing has been reimagined, Meda promises refreshed interpretations of timeless traditions.
At the helm, chef Mario Fico pours his heart and soul into Mediterranean flavours, sharing that this fusion of cuisines has always had a special place in his heart. Working alongside chef Vincenzo Nigro and the team of culinary experts behind the scenes, the brigade presents a menu that showcases the very best of coastal Europe.
A little bit of the Med
The menu features a diverse range of quintessential Mediterranean dishes, along with an impressive selection of delicacies. Dive into raw and caviar signatures, such as the sea bream ceviche, or the tuna tartare. Under hot tapas, indulge in the Huevos Rotos, a standout dish served with black truffle, alternatively try the Gambas, prawns uniquely prepared and paired with fluffy focaccia.
Desserts are really where it’s at. Try the loukoumades, deep-fried dough served with a Gianduja chocolate dip. If you’d prefer, a contemporary take on the classic, Tiramisu. Not up for dessert? Cocktails are hand-crafted and expertly created. Take La Fresa Roja for example, a twist on the Italian dessert, Strawberry Zabaglione – which features strawberry-infused white vermouth.
If you’re looking for a new place to check out when you’re on your lunch break, then look no further than Meda. From midday to 3pm every day, delight in a three-course business lunch for only Dhs130. If you only have time for a quick lunch break, take the two-course option for Dhs115.
Cheeky sundowners are a must in this city, and clearly, Meda knows this. Aperitivo is offered daily from 6pm to 8pm, with a drink and three tapas from a special menu priced at Dhs79.
