“Taste your way around Asia and the world” at 24th St. in the luxurious Dusit Thani Dubai. Just recently, the centre added an Arabic and Italian “kitchen” to its roster of street food stalls. Let’s take a closer look at what this place has to offer, shall we?
Street Food Dining, High Above the City
Situated in — you guessed it — the 24th floor of Dusit Thani Dubai, 24th St. offers amazing views of the city, including the towering Burj Khalifa and the bustling Sheikh Zayed Road. True to a “street food” setting, there are individual stalls cooking up delicious food from all over Asia, served on tables where groups can come together and enjoy the evening.
Same Place, Different Cuisines
As cited earlier, 24th St. features several “kitchens:” Momo San (Japanese), Kim’s Korean, Lucy Wong’s (Chinese), and Chatakana (Indian). Starting July 2019, two more kitchens were added… Ali’s (Arabic) and Mario’s (Italian). That’s a lot of good food, all in one place!
At Momo San, guests can sample Japanese fare, including Edamame Yakiudon (stir-fried udon noodles with veggies, tonkatsu, soya sauce) and Yakitori (grilled chicken skewers in teriyaki sauce). Of course, they can also have their fill of California Maki and Tempura Rolls.
Meanwhile, Kim’s Korean serves Japchae (stir-fried glass noodles with beef, mushrooms, veggies) and Bulgogi (stir-fried marinated beef with carrots, mushroom, zucchini). You may also want to try Jajangmyeon, which are flat noodles with minced beef and black bean sauce.
Chinese food enthusiasts should head to Lucy Wong’s and get a taste of their Roasted “Ma Lak” Chicken (served with garlic onion spicy sauce), Chili Crabs, and Char Kuey Teow Noodles, which are served with Chinese sausage, prawns, bean sprouts, eggs, and chives.
If you’ve never tried Indian street food before, Chatakana is ready to cook up some Punjabi Samosa (savory pastry stuffed with spiced potatoes, green peas) and Tandoori Chaap (lamb chops marinated with ginger garlic and yoghurt), among other delicious goodies.
Finally, the newly-opened Ali’s offers a wide selection of Arabian food (e.g. Kebab, Lamb Kofta, and Shish Taouk), while Mario’s serves Italian cuisine, including chicken tikka pizza and creamed Arborio rice with mushrooms and white truffle oil, just to name a few.
Aside from all of these good eats, 24th St. serves beer, wine, Japanese Sake, Korean Soju, and other beverages. Fresh juices, smoothies, milkshakes, coffees, and teas are also available.
