It’s official, summer has arrived. While Caramel in the DIFC has battened down the hatches, rumour has it, their outside terrace will be given a makeover in time for reopening in the fall.

Ladies night on Tuesday was packed when we swung by; of the food we tasted there were two exceptional dishes.

First up, yellowtail sashimi with Serrano chillies and a drizzle of ponzu sauce for Dh85. Followed by seared Chilean sea bass served on a bed of rock shrimp risotto and lobster broth, great value at just Dh150.

Other sharing platters worth a try include Caramel’s signature chicken lollipops and miso wrapped veggie rolls.
