Toro Toro lights up a dull day with its brilliant décor, fiery orange tones and a dramatic floor-to-ceiling fireplace that will leave you in awe. This swanky Dubai hotspot spans two floors on the marina’s edge and its extensive menu offers culinary treats from Buenos Aires to São Paulo prepared by renowned mega-chef, Richard Sandoval. The picadillo empanadas (ground beef samosas), ceviche de mariscos (shrimp ceviche cocktail) and calamari mixed with chilli cabbage and blood orange are some of the best dishes you can expect to try in Dubai. Other culinary specialties at Toro Toro packing a punch include the fresh octopus, shrimp and scallop marinated in a zesty orange and ginger sauce. Still, it’s the palomilla steak served with poblano chilli and bell peppers that really hits the spot! The potato tostones slathered with a rich truffle and parmesan marinade is equally enticing. For the sweet-toothed, the tres leches cake – a milk-infused sponge with fresh berries and vanilla cream – is a must-have and a great way to end what can only be described as one of the best meals in the city!
