Lobster ceviche: Asado’s version of this chilled South American dish comes stuffed with delicious morsels of tender fish and plenty of zing. Lobster, tuna and scallops all play a starring role. Plus, it’s served amid billowing puffs of smoke, thanks to a little dry ice.
Asado, The Palace (04 428 7888). Dhs195

Ice cream teppanyaki: Ever wanted to design your own ice cream? Now’s your chance. At Choices, a live pastry chef mixes any flavour of ice cream you want with any topping, then mushes it about on the teppanyaki table.
Choices, Al Bustan Rotana (04 282 0000). Included in buffet, from Dhs179 depending on night

Cold cacao and coffee soup: We realise it’s difficult to imagine duck liver as anything but savoury, but the creamy offal can actually make a lovely dessert base. Such is the case with this chilled soup, made from coffee and cacao and served with orange sorbet. We realise it’s a lot of flavours, but it works.
Ossigeno, Le Royal Méridien (04 399 5555), price on request

Ice cream cupcakes: What would Dubai’s cupcake trend be without an ice cream variant? Imagine a crisp, Belgian chocolate shell filled with a layer of cake, fudge and ice cream, then topped with frosting. What better way to cool off?
Cold Stone Creamery, various locations including The Dubai Mall (04 339 9066). Dhs46 for six
