As The Galleria gets ready to host its own foodie fest, we take a sneak peek at what’s being served up for Dining Week
Ten days, more restaurants than we can count on two hands and a capital full of foodies to enjoy it – The Galleria’s inaugural Dining Week is set to bring a burst of flavour to Abu Dhabi from 20th to 29th April.
Featuring a jam-packed week of special menus, promotions, tastings, workshops and gourmet events galore, all under one roof, the mall is hoping to whet the appetite of foodies in Abu Dhabi.
Are you hungry yet? You will be when you see what’s on offer…
On the menu
Kicking things off in style, Roberto’s brings a special three-course signature menu to the table priced at AED 280. Choose from options including Wagyu beef tartare, beetroot and Gorgonzola risotto and Mediterranean sea bream before rounding things off with an indulgent dessert.
If that doesn’t conquer your cravings, head to Carluccio’s, where unlimited plates of pasta await with your choice of sauce for the entire month of April for AED 65.
Make Loca your destination during Dining Week if Mexican food is what you’re after, where a three-course menu is on offer with options including quesadillas, tacos, burritos and our favourite, the tres leches cake, for AED 90.
For some South American flavour, Coya will be offering its set lunch menu including a mini dessert for AED 110. On the menu is kale and manchego salad, Chilean sea bass and quinoa stir fry.
If you’re after Middle Eastern cuisine, Almaz by Momo will be offering a special menu with a starter, main course and drink for AED 89, while self-styled Californian-Afghani restaurant Nolu’s is offering a four-course menu priced at AED 100. Pick from favourites including mantoo dumplings, potato bolani and prawn curry, plus soup and dessert.
If you’re still hungry, there’s plenty more to enjoy at the outlets dotted around the mall.
