With the newly opened Burj Khalifa just outside, there is much to distract you when you take a table outdoors at this Argentinean restaurant
Time Out Dubai staff
From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2010
This Argentinean eatery’s location ensures plenty of visual nourishment – Asado sits under the shadow of the imposing Burj Khalifa and affords a view of the Dubai Fountain. Happily, the restaurant provides more than just a feast for the eyes – the fine steaks sufficiently compliment the aesthetics. What’s more, the staff here are excellent and have an in-depth knowledge of the menu should you need assistance with your order. They begin the evening by presenting you with a tray of assorted steaks. While you could always go for chicken or fish, skipping out on the steaks will mean you’ll also miss out on the vast array of sauces and mustard that accompany the beef. The sides, such as roasted vegetables or thick-cut garlic fries stacked Jenga-style, are also welcome additions. There is a seafood platter that makes an excellent starter – with lobster, scallops and tuna – it’s big enough for two to share, and will freshen your palate for the mains. Should you wish to deviate from the norm, that Argentinean speciality of roasted goat can also be ordered for you and your group to enjoy.
