Dubizins celebrates some of the brilliant Dubai seafood restaurants with a special look at the best fish dishes in Dubai, including Zuma and Coya
While Zuma’s black cod is indeed superb, the original from Nobu has made it onto this list. The restaurant, still Time Out Dubai’s Best Japanese, has plenty of amazing seafood dishes to choose from. The Chilean sea bass, marinated in teriyaki sauce, lemon, chilli and garlic is cooked on a robata grill and drizzled with a zingy chilli, ginger, lemon soy and vinegar sauce. It’s deeply flavoursome and satisfying with every bite.
Jason Atherton’s Dubai outpost is expertly overseen by Tristin Farmer, formerly of Pollen Street Social and Maze, and boasts a range of innovative dishes served up against the twinkling lights of Dubai Marina. Among the fish offering from the new menu is a meaty piece of cod loin, paired with coco beans, mussel vinaigrette, Amalfi lemon and samphire, for a truly fresh taste of the sea.
Brand new to the menu at Play, a restaurant by chef Reif Othman of Zuma fame, is the aptly named sushi dish “Fire Up”. Prettily presented spicy salmon sits atop a sushi roll with more salmon and avocado that packs quite the punch thanks to jalapeño, spicy tenkasu, spicy miso, sriracha and sliced red radish. Fans of food with a kick will be in their element: fiery by name and nature.
