Dubai is one of the top dining destinations of the world and we have listed four stunning dishes from several restaurants in the city that you should be on your foodie list.
Duck Vindaloo at Punjab Grill Dubai
Inspired by the Portuguese sailors’ preserved dish of meat, garlic and vinegar, Vindaloo was adapted by Goan households and restaurants as a fiery dish of meat with hot & sour sauce. At Punjab Grill, Chef Sandeep has adapted this popular Goan delicacy through roasted French duck breast, accompanied with potatoes and garlic roasted in duck fat and paired with the vindaloo sauce. The newly opened Punjab Grill, Dubai is located in The Oberoi, Dubai, and offers an intimate dining experience with an innovative menu of modern Indian cuisine.
