Looking for new restaurants in Dubai? Look no further. Here are three brand-new places to check out.
New Indian restaurant and bar Bomba Borough is now open in DIFC. The new spot will offer ‘hyper-local’ Indian cuisine. The menu is inspired by all corners of India, sourcing Bhoot Jolokia from the North East, Aam Papad in the North West, along with pink salt from the Himalayas in the North. Bombay Borough also brings The Gully Kitchen, a fast-casual kitchen offering Indian food to go, including gluten-free dosa pockets and grab-and-go biryani – made from scratch. The restaurant also includes a botanist-inspired bar, serving up Desi-style mixed drinks and more that uses local Indian ingredients. We’re intrigued.

Michelin-starred Chinese restaurant Hutong recently opened in DIFC this month. With a restaurant already in Hong Kong, as well in the famous Shard in London, Miami and New York and we can’t wait to see what the Dubai restaurant has in store. Hutong, which opened in Hong Kong seventeen years ago, was one of the first Chinese restaurants to be awarded a Michelin-star and comes from David Yeo, founder of Aqua Group. Dishes on Yeo’s menu include signatures from Hong Kong and London, including Red Lantern – crispy soft-shelled crab with dried chilli and the Halibut Red Star Noodle. There will also be dishes specially designed for Dubai.
