NEW MENUS | Spring 2021
In this menu edition we invite you to try native desert plants from the UAE, dry-aged beetroot, and sustainable Arabian Gulf fish varieties. We also celebrate the return of Fujairah’s Dibba Bay oysters on our menu and prepare dishes with salt beef from local purveyors, ‘meat melt’. Do not forget to check out our new paella recipes and of course all the BOCA tapas favourites.
LOCAL INGREDIENTS GUIDE
We are proud present the first edition of ‘LOCAL INGREDIENTS: An Illustrated Guide’ highlighting the best of local and home-made produce. Download it here.
This season we present to you over 235 labels of which 67 are offered by the glass, highlighting the best of viniculture from old world, new world, and from countries close to our home in Dubai. Our focus in this list is on Spain and as a wine lover you may have already savored a glass of Ribera del Duero or Rioja. This season, however, we invite you to try wines from “smaller” regions that may now be producing some of Spain’s future stunners. From Castilla and Conca De Barberà to Montsant, Somontano, and Toro DO’s, sample indigenous and revived grape varieties and see if you find yourself a new favorite. Thank us later! Enjoy and salud!
The cocktail list now features drinks that are a result of our bartenders and our internal waste officer collaborating. Our bar team is mandated to move at least one cocktail per month into the ‘no waste’ section of the menu. Expect to see pineapple pulp turned into lollies for garnish, local yellow peppers dehydrated and crushed into rimming salts and passionfruit shells turned into coasters. We have also added a ‘TOOTH FAIRY’ section featuring dessert cocktails such as ‘BOCAMISÙ’ made with whiskey, Amarula, espresso, mascarpone, and Savoiardi biscuits and ‘JELLYSTONE’ with gummy bear-infused vodka, cranberry juice, lemon juice and a gummy bear stick.
SUSTAINABILITY AT HEART
At BOCA we strive to keep sustainability at the core of our operation. In addition to sourcing ingredients locally and supporting local farmers and fishermen, we have stepped up our efforts to reduce waste. We continuously audit our kitchen and bar operations, refuse single use plastic from suppliers and to customers, operate a demand-driven inventory, and prefer working with like-minded partners across the value chain.
Ensuring the health and safety of our guests and staff is of the utmost importance. We are following all guidelines and taking strict precautions through every step of the process.
