Dubai Opera is famous for welcoming world-class acts, from dancers to DJs. Now, it is set to welcome a new restaurant, ALBA. The Pan Asian restaurant is scheduled to open in March, and here’s what you need to know. 

Created by the hospitality group MetaFoodies Restaurants Management, ALBA combines Pan-Asian cuisine with European flair. The dishes are inspired by Eastern and Asian influences, from the 19th century to modern day street food.

ALBA’s food menu blends together flavours from Korea, Japan and China with modern European techniques. Chef Vladimir Chistyakov and Chef Minho Ted Shin are behind the menu. The signature dishes include Beef Yuk-Hwe with uni, caviar and truffle; Caviar and Uni with crispy seaweed; and Caviar and Wagyu Maki with delicious foie gras.
