Whether you're ready or not, the heat is here - though still bearable outside at night and first thing in the morning. When it comes to places to eat and things to do in Abu Dhabi this month, there are still loads of very cool options. We've got a great Yas Marina Circuit drive experience, a fabulous pool day and some amazing sorbets for delivery, alongside a hidden gem for you to save on! Feel the weather - it's do or dine!

OTORO

AL QANA


We love a place where you can dine with a view, even when sitting inside - Otoro is that place! With an interesting lookout out to the marina at Al Qana, this is a fabulous summer-winter venue and the food most definitely doesn't disappoint. Must trys include the wakame salad, the exquisite otoro (the good bit of the tuna) nigiri and the miso black cod but get a few mocktails and enjoy the chocolate tart dessert to go with it - this must be one of the best desserts in Abu Dhabi! It's not an inexpensive meal, but the 15% BB+ discount really helps!


Time: 12PM-11PM

Price: Maki: AED40-50. Main: AED70-300. Desserts: AED43

KOPITIAM BY CHANDY'S


We featured Kopitiam in our new openings list a couple of months ago and the reviews are now coming in thick and fast! This authentic Malay food is really capturing people's hearts with strong notes of Singaporean street food markets ... and smashing their tastebuds too! Chef and owner Chandy has his game on point: the menu is small (yes!) and constant mention is made of the quality and authenticity of the roti canai, the nasi goreng and the char kway teow. If you love a bit of Malay food, head to Kopitiam.


Time: 11AM - 11PM
