Food & Drink


An abundance of local and regional seafood and fish is in season, and the land is rich with fresh produce. In this menu edition, our kitchen uses only locally grown tomatoes from Pure Harvest Farms, and a new aromatic native desert plant called Shih شيح makes its debut. We want you to try local sea snails and Dibba Bay’s summer oysters, and strongly recommend you do not overlook the ‘Arrocito con Ostra’, a recipe developed with paella master Vicente Rioja from Benisanó. Do not miss out on the cheese course, where we introduce a rare variety from Lebanon and celebrate Cypriot Halloumi finally getting the PDO status it deserves. We have kept all the BOCA tapas favorites, of course.

This season we present the second 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.

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.
