Today is National Guacamole Day in the US and Dubai restaurant Amazonico wants you to celebrate. Guacamole con Erizo is a house specialty bringing together the versatility of fruit combined with the freshness of the ocean. The creamy texture of the sea urchin perched on the jungle green lushness of the avocado will transport you to the vibrant Latin-American rainforest.
Every Wednesday, KYO at The Pointe puts on three hours of bottomless sushi from Dh115. Need we say any more? Starting from 7pm, try the truffle sea bass Nigiri, spicy tuna Uramaki and avocado and Hosomaki eel Maki.
