Pit Stop Menus: Try these set menus at Abu Dhabi Corniche
VaKaVa

The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is the finale of the Formula 1 season and people flock from all around the world to the UAE capital to experience the thrilling occasion.

During Race Week there are loads more things to do away from the track, including big parties, brunches and shopping deals – and it wouldn’t be an Abu Dhabi event if there wasn’t food involved.

With that in mind, Time Out Abu Dhabi has teamed up with some of Abu Dhabi’s very best restaurants and the Department of Tourism and Culture – Abu Dhabi, to bring you Pit Stop Menus.

The idea is simple – each restaurant will offer a special set menu between November 14 and December 2 to showcase its very best dishes.

Here are the restaurants taking part along Abu Dhabi Corniche.

Bocca
Found at the Radisson Blu Hotel & Resort on the Corniche, this venue specialises in authentic Italian food. So if you’re dreaming of a getaway to Rome or Venice, now you can at least experience the cuisine of this vibrant country without leaving the capital. There’s no set menu here, so you are free to choose three courses of your choice for less than Dhs90 per person. The delicious options include risotto, grilled meats, homemade pastas and more.
Dhs89. Sun-Thu noon-3pm. Radisson Blu Hotel & Resort, Abu Dhabi, West Corniche (02 692 4247).

Catch
With an incredible location on the Corniche overlooking the crystal clear waters of the Arabian Gulf, Catch definitely has some of the best views in town and it’s a great place to grab a bite to eat, too. Make your way there on Race Week and you can enjoy a three-course menu for Dhs199 and take your pick from a host of dishes including sea bass ceviche, gyoza, miso-marinated salmon, wok-fried noodles, chocolate fondant and more.
Dhs199. Daily noon-1am. Nation Riviera Beach Club, Corniche West (02 611 0909).

Hakkasan
This sleek and stylish venue is one of the very best restaurants in the city and the chain is certainly up there when it comes to the world’s greatest exponents of Cantonese cuisine (just check the amount of Time Out Abu Dhabi awards on the wall if you don’t believe us). Taste of Hakkasan menu is available for just one hour every day during Race Week but it’s worth heading down for. It includes Peking duck, stir-fried beef, steamed dim sum, crispy cod and many more dishes.

VaKaVa
The latest South American restaurant to open in Abu Dhabi has a very colourful and Insta-worthy dining room. The Latin-inspired plates are presented with style and a bit of a drama (we’re talking about the smoking guacamole in particular), and every dish is expertly made. The set menu includes hot and cold starters like beef empanada and the previously mentioned smoking guac, plus mains like Chilean sea bass and veal ribs, with creamy tres leches cake for dessert.
