3 restaurants to try in Dubai this week
Wednesday Seafood Feast
Wednesdays got even more crowded with the launch of this seafood feast at the ever-popular Flooka. For just AED150 each (food only) or AED200 with two house beverages, guests can fill up on unlimited mezzes and then order up the catch of the day or jumbo prawns from Flooka’s BBQ. Sounds like a plan.

Lunch at The Croft
Never mind Friday brunch, why not just enjoy Friday lunch? Ditching the buffets and cooking stations, this British-themed spot offers simple two (AED99) or three course (AED129) menus. Starters include goats’ cheese salad and Scotch egg, while there’s grilled BBQ chicken or fish and chips for mains. Pudding? How about Eton mess. Job done.
Where: Dubai Marriott Harbour Hotel & Suites, Dubai Marina

Ladies Night at Waka
Latin American cuisine (with an Asian twist) plus a midweek ladies night ought to be enough to attract the customers to this smart new lobby-level restaurant in the Oberoi in Business Bay – a hotel that has always delivered interesting culinary options. Every Wednesday, 8pm-12am, ladies can enjoy three complimentary drinks from a themed menu and a healthy 50 percent off your food bill. Fellas can come, too, and the bill will benefit from a 25 percent discount. It’s worth it for the starters alone.
