Dubai: If you have been to Istanbul, you can’t stop feeling a sense of deja vu when you enter Ruya, the Anatolian restaurant at Grosvenor House in Dubai Marina. If you haven’t, chances are you’ll end up planning a trip.
The Anatolian kitchen boasts of being as rich in flavours as the history of its lands. I began my evening with Borek, a Turkish savoury cheese pastry with a modern twist. It is a good pick for starters. The feta cheese is mixed with zucchini and walnuts which are not used traditionally. I would also recommend citir kalamir, leurek and cheese pide. The citir kalamir is baby squid in a ‘secret’ batter served with avocado and red pepper dip while leurek is a traditional seabass dish with mustard seeds.
