Casa De Tapas, modeled on the traditional rustic Bodega style venues found in the alleyways of Madrid, is now open at the Dubai Creek Yacht Club. The restaurant features classic Spanish dishes from Andalucía to Galicia, ideal for sharing and created by a highly qualified team of chefs who all hail from Spain. Everything from the paella to Sangria, menu to music, and décor to drinks has been created uniquely to offer a little slice of España right here in Dubai. To celebrate the fresh sabores de España, Casa de Tapas offers a selection of delicious Spanish food. Highlights from the tapas menu include a host of 'Embutidos' cold cuts, 'Gazpacho Andalúz' traditional Andalusian chilled tomato and vegetable soup, 'Surtido de Quesos Españoles' platter of traditional Spanish cheeses, and of course 'Patatas Bravas', fried potatoes with 'Brava' sauce, 'Tortilla Española' classic Spanish omelet and 'Almejas Salsa de Ajosteamed clams cooked in garlic, the Catalunyan classic 'Berejenas a la Mozarabe' fried eggplant with date syrup, and from Galicia 'Pulpo a Feira' octopus with crushed potatoes and smoked paprika.
Without doubt Casa de Tapas is the home of the best paellas in Dubai, traditional favorites include 'Paella de Mariscos' seafood paella and the delectable 'Paella de Fideua' which is a unique form of paella made with angel hair pasta, shrimp and squid ink instead of rice which is not available anywhere else in the city.
Mains include a range of meat including the 'Paletilla de Cordero de Avila al Horno' a 9 hour slow-roasted milk fed baby lamb shoulder from Spain and unique and traditional seafood such as 'Lubina a la Sal' which is whole sea bass encrusted and baked in rock salt.
