Spanish Restaurant Casa de Tapas Set to Open in Dubai Creek Yacht Club
Styled on the traditional rustic Bodega-style venues found in the alleyways of Madrid, the new eatery is set to open on 2 April and boasts a team straight from Spain. Everything from the paella to the sangria, the menu to the music and décor has been designed to offer a little slice of España in Dubai.
Highlights from the tapas menu include a selection of cold cuts and Spanish cheeses, gazpacho patatas bravas and classic Spanish omelette. You can also tuck into juicy clams cooked in garlic, the Catalunyan dish of fried eggplant with date syrup and from Galicia, octopus with crushed potatoes and smoked paprika.
For mains, Casa de Tapas is serving up that all-time favourite seafood paella as well as a variety made with angel hair pasta, shrimp and squid ink instead of rice. You can also choose from a selection of meat and fish dishes including the slow-cooked lamb shoulder and the sea bass baked in rock salt.
The venue offers guests a choice of sharing tables as well as private booths; each decorated with Spanish art illustrations as well as a more traditional dining room. Casa de Tapas will also feature live sports, including Spanish La Liga games, and live flamenco performances.
