4 restaurants to visit in Dubai this week
Peyote Business Lunch
The upscale Mexican had launched its very first business lunch and, we have to say that it’s worth a try. For AED130, guests will be treated to a three course meal; one soup, a starter and a main course – the pot braised short ribs and the yellowfin tuna and salmon, shouldn’t be missed. For an additional AED35, you can enjoy your dish with a glass of quality of grape or you can satiate your sweet tooth with a traditional dessert of churros and coffee.
When: 12pm-3.30pm, Sunday to Thursday
Where: Peyote, Gate Village 02, DIFC

Good breakfasts have now arrived at Dubai’s World Trade Centre courtesy of French café and patisserie Parlour Boutique. With is specialty coffee, bakery and bistro dishes, it’s a place for passing by all through the day – although its croissants, berry and pecan pancakes and their eggs benedict in an éclair means the earlier the better for us.
Where: Central One Building, Dubai World Trade Centre

Yi By Yuan
A Thursday night ladies night is the stuff of legend in Dubai, so Yi by Yuan shoots straight to the top of our must-try planner. It takes place at the Chinese hotspot between 8.30pm-11pm and includes free house mixes all night as well as 30 per cent off a special Yuan menu, which has been created exclusively by executive oriental chef David Pang. Look out for the roasted duck roll with mango.
When: 8.30pm-11pm, every Thursday
Where: Atlantis The Palm

Dirty Dog Challenge
As regular readers will know, we love an eating challenge here at ShortList, so the launch of a new one is something we get excited about – especially when it’s a hot dog. The Black Lion’s Dirty Dog Challenge serves up a metre-long dog that gets dirtier and hotter as you progress along its course – and challengers have just 15 minutes to complete it. Any that do will have their bill waived and a place on the leaderboard, those who don’t will have to stump up AED295.
When: 5pm-11.30pm, Saturday to Wednesday
Where: The Black Lion, H Hotel, Sheikh Zayed Road
