Caribbean queens

Updated: Mar 24, 2019

Miss Lily’s (+971 4 354 4074) brings a true taste of the Caribbean to these shores in the form of authentic Jamaican dishes.Hailing from New York, this is the first international Miss Lily’s outpost, and it’s something of a gem. Vibrant, fun and characterful, the self-styled ‘beach shack-meets-Jamaican diner’ boasts a number of must-try dishes including jerk corn grilled with toasted coconut, hot pepper lobster and a brilliant king crab with Scotch bonnet sauce.

Also well worth checking out is Ting Irie (+971 4 557 5601) at Downtown Boulevard, which offers up Jamaican staples in a fun atmosphere courtesy of executive chef Craig Wong (of Jamaican-Chinese heritage), whose CV boasts stints at the multi-Michelin-starred Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée and Heston Blumenthal’s Fat Duck
