Initially introduced as part of a limited iftar offering,
the Ritz-Carlton DIFC’s creative Arabic sushi has become so popular that they’re
keeping it. The hotel’s No.5 Lounge & Bar’s Arabic
sushi is a take on the Japanese version but infused with Middle Eastern
flavours. The executive chef Ron Pietruszka’s time at the Ritz-Carlton in Osaka
is no doubt behind this culinary twist. This means creations like shawarma with
Arabic pickles, falafel-tahina, beetroot mutabel with cucumber, prawn-harra,
and tabbouleh with organic tomato.
During the summer, the Arabic sushi
will be served inside the bar alongside more traditional Japanese sushi, and
outside on the terrace from September onwards.
