PACO PÉREZ, FROM THE MEDITERRANEAN TO THE WORLD
Paco Pérez’s culinary journey started at Miramar, the 2 Michelin-starred restaurant he and his wife run on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. Miramar is the source of his inspiration, his creativity, his philosophy, but he is also the driving force behind other restaurants around the world, including Enoteca in Barcelona, which also has 2 Michelin stars, (he has 5 in total), Arco in Poland, and Tast Català in the UK, among others.

ESTRELLA DAMM, BREWED IN BARCELONA WITH MEDITERRANEAN INGREDIENTS SINCE 1876
More than 140 years ago, August K. Damm and his wife Melanie emigrated from Alsace to Barcelona, where they fulfilled their dreams of doing what they did best: brewing beer. In 1876 they established their own brewery, having crafted and perfected a distinctive beer which was suitable for warmer climates and was very different from existing central European beers: Mediterranean lager.

Today, Estrella Damm is still brewed using the original 1876 recipe, with 100% natural ingredients: barley, hops and rice. The quality of the beer’s ingredients is of the utmost importance and the brewery works closely with local farmers. Estrela Damm also has its own malting, where the finest quality malt that Estrella Damm’s master brewers insist on is produced. Rice from the nearby Ebro river delta makes the beer more refreshing – a great fit for the Mediterranean climate.

A CELEBRATION OF OYSTERS AND OUR SEAS

A CELEBRATION OF OYSTERS AND OUR SEAS
BOCA, Dibba Bay Oysters and Gin Mare host a ten-day celebration featuring special promotions and marks launch of a reef building project.

Dibba Bay Oysters and Gin Mare share a deep connection with the sea, gastronomy and marine conservation. This March, we invite you to share this passion with us through a ten-day celebration featuring Dibba Bay Oysters specials, Dibba Bay Oyster pairing menus and Gin Mare cocktails.

BOCA has been serving only one type of oyster since 2018; Dibba Bay Oysters from the pristine waters of Fujairah, UAE. Thanks to the unique conditions of the ocean, which made Arabia world-renowned for its lustrous white pearls, the Dibba Bay oyster is thriving and continues to showcase the heritage of the region through its distinctive and vibrant white and gold shell. The unique qualities of the waters of the Emirates, which have been historically through the legendary white pearls, now live on through the Dibba Bay oyster shell.

Together with Gin Mare, who share a deep love and passion for the ocean, oysters and gastronomy, we come together to celebrate with special offers on freshly shucked oysters, specially curated pairing menu and new Gin Mare cocktail creations.

During the ten-day celebration, BOCA will offer special pricing on freshly shucked Dibba Bay oysters throughout the day and present a five-dish oyster menu and three Gin Mare cocktails for AED 260 per person. On the menu expect to see BOCA’s SIGNATURE COOL SEASON DIBBA BAY OYSTERS with clementine and Gin Mare vinaigrette, Pure Harvest tomatoes and calamansi gel, OYSTER CROQUETTES with piccalilli mayo, ARROZ NEGRE with Indian Ocean Octopus, bergamot allioli, Spanish Bomba black rice and a DIBBA BAY OYSTER ICE CREAM or ‘OYSCREAM’ with cucumber gel, Opalys Valrhona chocolate and sea salt tuille. Gin Mare’s creations are priced from AED 45.

This celebration will support reef projects by local non-profit marine conservation organization AZRAQ. AZRAQ, in collaboration with the Freestyle Divers Conservation team, protects and propagates coral off the coast of Dibba, Fujairah, through the construction of coral nurseries and artificial reefs. Dibba Bay Oysters, BOCA and Gin Mare will help by collecting and transporting cleaned Dibba Bay oyster shells to be used as building blocks for creating habitat and ecosystems to support marine life.

BOCA’s FIRST CARBON FOOTPRINT REPORT

BOCA’s FIRST CARBON FOOTPRINT REPORT

With the launch of our new menu, we also introduce our first carbon emissions report. The report, calculated by local carbon consulting firm elementsix, shows that our total carbon emissions for the year 2021 was 754 tonnes of CO2. This is a 10% reduction from the original total, as we source our electricity from renewable energy sources, through the use of International Renewable Energy Certificates (I-RECs).

We intend to reduce a further 26% of its total emissions by the end of 2022 by switching its chilled water consumption to renewable energy sources and another 4% by recycling its used oil and composting its organic waste. 

As a guest of BOCA, we are committed to serving you a delicious meal in a beautiful setting while maintaining a high standard of waste management, responsible sourcing and operating a low impact business. As a guest with us, your emissions will not exceed 15 kg of CO2.

NEW MENU: RESPONSIBLE. CONSCIOUS. DELICIOUS

SPRING 2022 MENU: RESPONSIBLE. CONSCIOUS. DELICIOUS

In this menu edition, vegetables take centre stage, and skins, stems, seeds and ugly produce get a second chance. We bring you a dining experience with a low carbon footprint, and without compromising on taste. We want to stop throwing the word sustainability around and start making a difference.
