If you’re a fan of dim sum, listen up. There’s a brand-new Chinese restaurant coming to Deira, and we can’t wait.
Billed as a “young and trendy Asian fusion gastropub and restaurant”, Han Shi Fu is opening in Aloft City Centre Deira soon.
The new venue is from the team behind popular dim sum joint Din Tai Fung, and it promises “authentic dishes with an infusion of bold flavours”.
Dishes on the exciting new menu include crystal ray crab dumplings, charcoal gold dust umami bao, Grandma Han’s duck congee and matcha green tea velvet cake. There are also bar bites such as soy butter popcorn, ramen burgers and foie gras sliders.
By night, a resident DJ sets an eclectic energy resulting in a spirited atmosphere for the UAE’s creative catalysts and movers and shakers.
“The characterful venue maps out a culinary journey through the dynamic urban cities of Taipei, Hong Kong, Shanghai, New York and Los Angeles,” says the team behind it.
The restaurant has a bar, as well as several different dining areas, and décor includes traditional Chinese scrolls and ceramic wall decorations. The mood is promised to be upbeat, with a resident DJ playing nightly.
The restaurant is in the new cinema-themed hotel in Deira. The Aloft City Centre Deira opened in June and boasts four restaurants, five meeting rooms and even a licensed VOX Cinemas outdoor screen, complete with casual seating and cinema snacks. So you can sit back and chill with some popcorn and movie before you retire to your hotel room.
AS well as Han Shi Fun, there’s RE: FUEL lobby lounge, W XYZ Bar & Lounge, as well as infinity pool, pool tables and the promise of live music thanks to the Live At Aloft series.
The trendy hotel – which is part of the tech-forward, modern hotel chain that is part of Marriott International – is also directly connected to the City Centre Deira shopping centre, which has more than 100 shops and a VOX Cinema Multiplex.
It’s third of the popular hotel chain to open in the city this year.
Aloft The Palm opened in January, boasting sea views and super-cool Mexican restaurant, while and Aloft Me’aisam in Production City opened in March.
