Tapas have made an appearance in Dubai and are here to stay.
El Sur meaning ‘The South’ inculcates gastronomical innovations and techniques inspired by and as an honor to the great Chef Ferran Adrià of elBulli. Read more on elBulli here and I would like to believe I am tasting a bit of what elBulli has to offer in Dubai at El Sur.
The restaurant genuinely brings something new to the table with use of fresh ingredients to dynamic recipes introducing a stellar menu ranging from Spanish favorites to unique intensely flavorsome tapas which one should taste to experience, and the tapas brunch at El Sur every Friday offers just that – an elating experience all within a laid back and vibrant setting.
Personally, El Sur has raised the profile of Spanish cuisine in Dubai while offering a taste of traditional tapas such as patatas bravas(potatoes in spicy tomato), gambas al ajillo y guindilla (garlic & chilli prawns) to name a few as well as El Sur’s own modernistic creations ranging from pretty good to thoroughly excellent.
