Daikan but make it elevated

Foodie favourite Daikan Ramen sadly closed its doors in DIFC’s Gate Avenue last year and has (finally) reopened a Daikan Izakaya just over the road at City Walk’s C2. This is the brand’s first licensed restaurant in Dubai, after opening an izakaya in the capital last year. Bringing you delicious, yet simple Japanese cuisine, they offer a variety of broth bases from soy to miso, spicy and veggie. Pick from a number of delicious toppings that are available to add in. There are many bites to go along with your meal such as kimchi or gyozas.

Battle it out on the track

Chos Karts, now open in an old warehouse opposite Alserkal Avenue in Al Quoz, is an on-track racing concept that looks and feels very much like Mario KartIRL. It features industry-leading projection technology to fuse the worlds of go-karting and augmented reality to create a real-life videogame that goes beyond 4D and 4K.
