Fuego, Dubai

Fuego, a contemporary Mexican restaurant located at The Souk al Bahar opposite the Burj Khalifa. Fuego serves an authentic Mexican cuisine so don’t expect the American style cheddar cheese and sour cream to be flowing!

The restaurant has modern interior and very comfortable seats. The lights are dim and a beautiful lit wall gives a romantic atmosphere. It also has a bar area in a seperate section.

We got some nachos as starters along with two salsa dips. One was mild and the other one spicy.

Starters

The Guacamole on the spot was prepared on site in front of us. It was so creamy and velvety in texture. It tasted very fresh and was by far the best guac that we have had in Dubai!! We munched on them till the end.

For the drinks I ordered the usual Virgin Colada which tasted exactly how a good virgin colada should taste- you should be able to taste both coconut cream and pineapple equally, without one overpowering the other.Mr. A got his berries as usual!

Tacos de Camaron – The breaded shrimp tacos were a delight, not only visually but taste wise as well. The shrimps were crunchy from outside and juicy from inside. They were served with some pickled cabbage relish which tasted divine.

Mr. A got himself the Angus Huarache which had a corn dough based and a lot of Angus beef. It was delicious and gone in minutes!

Maincourse

Mr. A got himself the Tampiquena – 10 oz prime tenderloin with a side of smoked corn puree. It was topped with garlic chips and chilli sauce – guajillo jus which balanced the sweetness of the corn pure.

I got myself the Seafood Enchiladas which had Clams, octopus, prawns, mussels and pasilla sauce. My plate looked like a jungle with all the sauteed vegetables.

Desserts

Passionfruit eggless Cheesecake with a side of  ice cream was outstanding. The cheesecake was even stuffed with passionfruit. After a lot of stuffing, it was sufficient for us.

Chocolate Fantasia came with a lot of chocolate: Chocolate brownie, chocolate soil, chocolate sphere, chocolate spicy sauce and side of guavava icecream. The chocolate poured over the sphere revealed the brownie. It was again a small potion.

The service was excellent and overall the food was great. I would recommend it to anyone looking to dine in and have an authentic Mexican cuisine experience…Or just go there for the Guacamole on the Spot!
