One of the best places to eat in Dubai’s La Mer has closed – but don’t worry, it’s only moving house.
SLAB Test Kitchen, by chef Omar Rodriguez, is set to reopen at its brand-new location in Mercato Mall this summer, bringing with it the eatery’s acclaimed seasonal menu, which serves up everything from zesty ceviches to creamy carbonaras, using fresh, in-season ingredients.
If you never got the chance to check out the La Mer original, you’re in for a treat. But while you wait, it’s well worth paying a visit to SLAB’s sister restaurant BRD by SLAB, located in Dubai’s Dar Wasl Mall.
As hinted by the name, BRD’s menu has a big focus on fried chicken, which the casual restaurant opened with a mission to redefine. Don’t be fooled by short menu and at-the-counter ordering system – this is top quality cooking masquerading as an indie fast food shop.
Stay tuned for all the latest on SLAB Test Kitchen’s return to the city.
