COYA Dubai

COYA has been one of the top stops in Dubai’s Latin Amer­i­can food scene in re­cent years, fea­tur­ing a mod­ern take on Peru­vian cui­sine with Ja­panese, Chi­nese and Span­ish in­flu­ences.

In the evening the Four Sea­sons Re­sort lo­ca­tion cer­tainly comes into its own but there are also plenty of rea­sons to visit dur­ing the day­time when you can catch a bet­ter look at the vi­brant be­spoke dé­cor dur­ing a meet­ing with clients or lunch with a col­league.

The set lunch menu fea­tures plenty of op­tions to please even the most dis­cern­ing of pal­lets, with two starters and one main in­cluded in the price – along with a healthy dose of edamame or gua­camole pre­pared in front of you as an open­ing bite.

We tried the Do­rada Cla­sica, which was full of flavour com­bin­ing sea bream with red onion, white corn and sweet potato. The Baos con Res Wag yu also im­press com­bin­ing suc­cu­lent South Amer­i­can sea­son­ing with Chi­nese in­flu­ences for a mouth­ful that’s sure to stay with you. While, the An­tic­uho de Satas are also rec­om­mended for a veg­e­tar­ian dish that does not skip on the flavour or tex­ture.

Mov­ing on to the mains, the Ar­roz Nikkei is a de­light­ful com­bi­na­tion of Chilean sea bass with rice, lime and chilli that is sure to tan­ta­lise the taste buds. Al­ter­na­tively the Vege­tar­i­ana with peas, beans, con­fit tomato and goats cheese should keep the more green-minded diner happy. Com­bine your meal with one of the many Peru­vian themed bev­er­ages on of­fer and you might want to stop for a siesta on the way back to the of­fice.
