On Wednesday February 19th the kitchen and floor of award-winning Mediterranean Restaurant BOCA will be taken over by Spanish 1* Michelin restaurant, Taller [tah-yehr] (MICHELIN GUIDE 2020). Taller, located in the prestigious Bodegas Arzuaga, is the only 1* Michelin restaurant in the Ribera del Duero region in Northern Spain. This region produces some of the world’s most prized wines and was named Wine Region of the Year by Wine Enthusiast Magazine (2012).
Taller shares BOCA’s passion for sourcing locally and has built its reputation on a firm commitment to representing ingredients from the land surrounding its location and the seafood it has access to regionally. Executive Chef Jon Mendoza will present a seven-course tasting menu combining the very best of Castilian and Peruvian cooking using local ingredients from the Arabian Gulf. Expect to try dishes that incorporate different textures and flavors such as Olive Oil from Arzuaga with Duck, Crispy Zucchini Nigiri and ‘Causa’, Pickled Quinoa Salad as well as Pigeon with Buckwheat and Wine Reduction. Spain has access to some of the best fish and seafood in the world through its Atlantic and Mediterranean coastlines but so does the UAE with our Arabian Gulf and Indian Ocean shores. Local produce from the latter are used in an Emirati Seabass Ceviche, and in an Arabian Gulf Hammour cooked in coconut milk, lemon grass and ginger. Other dishes include Crayfish with Garlic and Almonds, and Octopus Rice with Soft-Shell Crab.
Ignacio Arzuaga of Bodegas Arzuaga will complement the menu with five wines from the vineyards and service will be directed by Amaya Arzuaga, supported by the kitchen and floor team of BOCA.
