Japchae, Manna Land Japchae – a stir-fried mixture of glass noodles and vegetables – holds a rm place in Korean history having been invented for a royal celebratio­n in the seventeent­h century. The colourful dish is an unmissable part of any Korean celebratio­n, and Manna Land’s rendition – served in a no-frills setting that might as well be in the backstreet­s of Seoul – is about as authentic as you’ll nd in Dubai. → Dhs40. Al Hudaiba, Bur Dubai, www.mannalandk­orean.com (04 345 3200). Pho, BB Social Dining This brilliant Asian restaurant in DIFC is all about the bowls (and bites, and bao) and its noodles are fantastic. Whether you’re up for some bok choi, beansprout­s and tofu sponging up the delicious broth, prefer slowcooked chicken with those rice noodles or beef tataki, pick your pho of choice and start slurping. Plus, this ace spot also delivers. → From Dhs45. Gate Village 8, DIFC, www.thisisbb.com (04 407 4444). Ramen to kisetsu yasai no itame mono, Zuma It comes as no surprise that Time Out Dubai’s best Japanese restaurant also offers up an absolutely stellar ramen dish. With a bowl lled with super-tasty stir-fried ramen, seasonal vegetables, crunchy nori (seaweed) and dried chilli, it may be on the pricier side but it’s worth it. We recommend getting a helpful serving of maki rolls to go along with it. → Dhs71. Gate Village 6, DIFC, www.zumarestau­rant.com (04 425 5660). Pho Bo Chin, Vietnamese Foodies As the best budget restaurant in town, Vietnamese Foodies’ pho is famous. Starting off at Dhs27, the noodle soup broth is simply delicious, singing with spices, especially when mixed in with the slurp-tastic rice noodles, Vietnamese herbs and best of all, the soft beef brisket. It’s gluten-free, too. → From Dhs27. Cluster D, JLT; Burj Vista Residence, Downtown Dubai, www.vietnamese­foodies.com.

Som tum kanom jeen, Café Isan We wouldn’t be surprised if more often than not, foodies opted for Café Isan’s brilliant pad Thai noodles, but they’d be missing out on its famous, Isan-style papaya salad with noodles 38 July 2020 timeoutdub­ai.com
