Best Bar Food Winner 17 Comments
- Picture 1 of 2
Caramel serves some of the best bar food in Dubai – because it strafes the upper limits of what’s considered a bar. A chic modern lounge-bar-restaurant, in the heart of a bustling financial centre, it’s not uncommon to find a lengthy wait for tables, with more choosing to dine that drink. As such, expect to pay prices that strafe the upper limits of what you’d expect from a bar – a meal for two is likely to set you back more than Dhs500, before drinks. Both the wait and the cost are just about justified; the food feels both classic yet has flair, flavours are present but not overwhelming. Sweet lovers beware however, as despite its sugary name, there’s just a handful of deserts on the menu. While the name is a Las Vegas export, the bar is surprisingly elegant, low-lit and understated. Which is why we really must make a quick aside on the waitresses’ costumes: no longer appropriate anywhere in the 21st century, and certainly out of place in a venue with such pretensions to class.
