Barrel 12 Dubai
Time Out Says
You’ll find yourself torn between hot dogs, sliders, a ploughman’s sandwich, pies, burgers, curries and a whole bunch more.
In essence, classic, quintessential pub grub. There’s a dedicated section of the menu for veggies and vegans, though, which is a nice touch and suitably in keeping with the city’s growing number of vegan-friendly outlets.
From said menu, the avocado quinoa does exactly what it says on the tin – it’s quinoa and avocado, with a bit of seasoning. The absence of additional ingredients to liven things up make this dish somewhat dense and monotonous.
The shepherd’s pie, however, is a cracker, and rightly has its place on the menu as one of bar’s “signature” dishes. Meaty, veggie, a bit saucy, and with a mashy top, it’s everything you’d hope for – with an extra side of gravy and peas to accompany this British classic.
The ambiance is someone stilted thanks gamers screaming at each other while playing FIFA, but on the whole for a decent bit of grub at a compelling price, look no further. Especially when there’s a game on, because there are gigantic screens everywhere.
