One does not need to go all the way to Madrid to have a slice of Spain. At the Dubai Creek Yacht Club is Casa de Tapas, a rustic Bodega-style restaurant that is very similar to those found in Madrid.
Since all of their chefs hail from Spain, expect delicious and authentic Spanish dishes from Andalusia to Galicia.
The restaurant’s menu consists of a well-appointed selection of traditional Espanol food. Paella de mariscos and Paella de Fideua are highly recommended. Their Paella de Fideua is really special because it is created by using angel hair pasta instead of rice. Shrimp and squid ink complete the dish – the unique deliciousness that you will not find anywhere else in Dubai.
It is truly indulgent to enjoy sips of Espana’s traditional sangria with hot and cold tapas while listening to great Latino music.
Once you dine at Casa de Tapas, you might find yourself wanting to stay there a bit longer for its amazing view. The restaurant overlooks the Dubai Creek that is full of ships docked at the pier. This will give you more tourist feels.
