Hot 100 restaurants 2015
Hot 100 restaurants 2015

Take a culinary trip around Europe in the heart of DIFC. A Mediterranean concept restaurant, Boca brings together the tastes of Italy, Spain and France in a casual yet contemporary laidback setting.

The new menu is to die for. Try the creamy truffle Burrata cheese that oozes when you slice it, and the soft potato gnocchi with sage and braised short rib, which literally melts in the mouth. 

Enjoy fresh local produce. The diverse menu is split into four sections – Deli (starters), Original and Market (mains) and Finale (desserts) – with the chefs heading out to the market each morning to select only the freshest local products. Trust us, you can tell. 

Don’t miss apertivo time. It’s Pintxo Hour from 6pm to 8pm every Tuesday and Thursday, offering tapas and drinks from the happy hour menu. The menu varies weekly, so you’ll always have something new to try when you’re out making an evening of it with friends.

Be sure to check out the cellar. For the ultimate exclusive experience, book this private area and sample eight dishes paired with eight grape offerings, as well as some pretty awesome cheeses. A thoroughly enjoyable experience in itself!
