Dusty's @ DIFC
Updated on 31 March 2016

Deli by day, wine bar by night and whole lot more in between, Dusty’s has something exciting on offer everyday of the week. Developed as an extension of its owner, Dusty Tourani, a man who has travelled the world, the restaurant depicts a mixture of different traditions and cultures into its design, ambiance and food. Situated in the heart of DIFC, with a rustic, industrial indoor space and the largest open terrace in DIFC offering fantastic views of the area, Dusty’s is the perfect destination for all your dining and social needs.


What we ate
I was feeling hungry, so we started with the 3 Wagyu sliders and a roasted beetroot salad with goat’s cheese and pistachio. Portion sizes are not a problem, and the sliders were a meal in themselves. We then went for the grilled lamb chops with sweet potato puree and aubergine salsa, and the signature dish, the Dusty’s red chicken with yoghurt and coriander. Both were very filling and perfectly prepared. After a short break we decided to share dessert and go for a couple of scoops of lemon and lime, and raspberry sorbet, perfect.

Verdict
We’ll be back! Dusty’s is a great place for everyday dining, and with different themes throughout the week, including Happy Hours, Ladies Nights and Live music, it’s the ideal place to relax and enjoy an evening with friends.

Cost
Starters from Dhs 30, Mains from Dhs 60 and Desserts from Dhs 30. In addition to the a la carte menu, Dusty’s also have a Business Breakfast for Dhs 45 per person and a Business Lunch for Dhs 59 per person for one course, Dhs 69 for two courses and Dhs 89 for three courses.

Open
Dusty’s is open from 7.30am to 11pm for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Located in the Al Fattan Currency House, DIFC. Call +971 (04) 3545435 or visit www.dustysdubai.com. - P.C.
