Dine at the new Japanese hotspot Otoro
Like Chef Akmal Anuar’s other concepts, the newly-opened Otoro is rooted in simple dishes made using high-quality ingredients. We’re told that fresh produce from various prefectures of Japan (Wagyu from Kagoshima, Otoro from Tokyo, and Uni from Hokkaido) has been key in the creation of its highly tantalising dishes. Highlights include the Yellow Tail Carpaccio, Wagyu Tempura, Shabu Shabu Burger, and Seabass Miso Yaki. As for some of the desserts to leave room for? It’s a toss-up between the Green Tea Tiramisu and Dark Chocolate tart with butterscotch. Otoro boasts views of Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, while the venue’s aesthetics stay true to the earthiness and neutrality of contemporary Japanese design.

Created by Chef Pierre Gagnaire, the refreshed menu takes guests on a flavoursome voyage through classic French cuisine.

The tempting main courses feature prawns with orange marmalade, sharing-style chateaubriand with béarnaise sauce, and duck breast drizzled with bigarade sauce. Finally, new summer desserts include rum baba with mango and Chantilly, and Madagascan vanilla parfait with caramelised pear, caramel chips and cumin.
