The homegrown luxury Asian restaurant opened its doors in DIFC in October, and it’s fair to say the glamorous hotspot (think Art Deco-detailed interior) is a welcome addition to Dubai’s evergrowing Chinese cuisine scene.
This Chinese New Year, Shanghai Me will serve a specially curated specials menu inspired by the culinary traditions of East Asia. We’re talking hot and sour soup with lobster, black mushroom spring rolls, and steamed whole whitefish – complete with fortune cookie.
Each table will also be served a togetherness box filled with nuts, sweets and mandarins, to wish guests luck and fortitude for the year of the rat. We’re sold.
• Shanghai Me at Gate Village 11, DIFC, Dubai. The menu is priced at Dhs845 per couple (excluding VAT) and is served from 25 January to 8 February. For reservations, call (+971) 4 564 0505
