Lunching and brunching at Maya

Last weekend, to celebrate the impending marriage of two lovely ladies we went down to Maya for some Mexican fun.

Maya is a modern take on a traditional Mexican kitchen and one of the prettiest restaurants in Dubai. The outdoor bar area is great for the cooler months but as the temperature is rising daily, we took a table inside!

What we ate: All dishes come to share so we had an amazing selection for the whole table and more than enough for everyone to enjoy!

 – With our welcome drinks: Crispy corn tortillas with three dips (Roasted tomato alsa, Tomatillo salsa & Guacamole)
 – To start: Home made huarache, Quesadilla traditional & Nachos Maya and Chile chipotle BBQ chicken salad (Field greens with black beans, roasted corn, and crispy corn tortilla
Mains: Beef Fajitas, Caribbean Lobster tail marinated with achiote, lamb chops marinated in Adobo and grilled seafood in achiote coconut sauce & cilantro rice
All finished off with fresh fruit plates and sorbet.
The above is the brunch menu so if you haven’t been before it’s a good way to try out the menu and taste smaller portions of more of the dishes on offer.

If like me you aren’t a fan of formal dining then this place is perfect, it’s really chilled out and anything goes – if you want to dress up then great, but otherwise casual gets you in too!

They’re also not in a hurry to clear the tables which means you can really enjoy the meal and time with friends, the sun had well and truly set by the time we all left.
