Step into Kris on the 19th floor of the Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel in bustling Bur Dubai and you can’t help but be overwhelmed by the sights and lights of Dubai and its skyline. Here, in the thick of what is arguably, an extremely Indian and Pakistani cuisine-dominated food space is a restaurant that reflects the essence of the Orient. Incidentally, the name too reflects its Asian heritage: ‘keris’ (or kris) is an asymmetrical wavy blade indigenous to Southeast Asia. The food is fairly authentic Asian (though it serves a few Arabic dishes). But it’s best to ignore the Indian and Arabic and let your taste buds be tantalised by the Far East instead. Be it the succulent prawn dumpling swimming in lemon grass broth or the simple yam ma muang, (slivers of crunchy mango jumbled with coriander, garlic, tamarind, red chilli and lime), the freshness of the ingredients and stinging spices make each meal deliciously memorable.
