The days of sun-drenched rooftops and dining al fresco are long behind us (or long ahead, depending on which side of the Twitter debate you’re on), but Dubai has no shortage of fresh restaurants that make it feel right to be inside. Case in point? Muchachas Mexican Cantina located in the Holiday Inn Express Safa Park.
Serving up excellent cocktails and modern Mexican fare, the focus here is modern classics, including pink snapper and salmon ceviche, nachos with plenty of pico de gallo, Adobo chicken quesadillas and tacos with just about everything filling you could imagine.
The fifth contingent in Bull & Roo’s line-up of quirky haunts (think Tom & Serg, Common Grounds and Brunswick) is spread over two levels. Inside, an Instagrammer’s paradise awaits thanks to a hugely welcoming space imbued with a pastel colour palette, cacti in pink pots (muchachas is Spanish for girl, after all) and food served in quirky crockery.
Oh, and did we mention their Friday brunch is only Dhs199?
