Grazia Middle East - - CONTENTS -


There’s a rea­son COYA is al­ways packed: the low-lit venue brings the spirit of Latin Amer­ica to the Mid­dle East in the best pos­si­ble way – gen­uinely ex­cel­lent cui­sine and a vi­brant at­mos­phere that money can’t buy. The dishes give orig­i­nal Peru­vian cui­sine a re­fresh­ingly mod­ern spin, meld­ing flavours in­spired by Ja­panese, Chi­nese and Span­ish dishes for a truly ex­tra­or­di­nary din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.
