Time Out food critics look back on the 20 best meals of the year
After seemingly falling from the giddy heights of excess to financial despair a few years ago, Dubai has picked itself up, dusted itself down and chosen a more sustainable, sensible path into the second decade of the 20th century. This sentiment is echoed in the dining scene, with restaurants focusing less on style (think exclusivity, guest lists and astronomical bills) and more on substance (what happens on the plate). And about time too. Here, we pick the 20 tastiest dishes we’ve been lucky enough to taste over the past year. Of course, Dubai has plenty of great restaurants, so our readers have added their penny’s worth, too. Without further ado, let’s get stuck in.

Seems a tad bit biased that none of your choices for Dubai’s “best dishes” of 2010 featured any Italian, African, Thai, or Chinese cuisine: it would be interesting to see how if your so called “experts” would rise to the challenge of writing a review for 2011, without resorting to the incessant need to favour “British inclined” meals only, and truly introduce TimeOut readers to the plethora of delectable cuisines Dubai has to offer!

Palate Vs Palette is an ubiquitous mistake but food critics should really know the difference between one and the other.....

Cheaper than 14Dhs for all that?

Tried this dish, and my pertner had a fillet steak, and dont agree with your critique I'm afraid. There are lots of good/better restuarants in Dubai and at cheaper prices!,
