Paru, Caesars Bluewaters Dubai

In addition to Akira Back at W – The Palm, Dubai, which opened earlier this year, chef Akira Back has opened a second outpost, Paru, at Caesars Bluewaters Dubai. Paru is located on a stunning rooftop at Caesars, with views across two terraces, the new eatery offers an eclectic menu of modern Japanese dishes masterfully created by Back. Having trained in Japan for many years, Back is known for bringing a sense of adventure to his culinary creations, taking traditional flavours and techniques from the region and giving them his own signature twist. Designed to deliver a sense of adventure in every bite, dishes include ‘Cool Share Plates’ such as Suzuki Ceviche (sea bass with caviar and soy yuzu ponzu) and Crispy Rice (spicy tuna on crispy rice, avocado, jalapeno, spring onion) as well as ‘Warm Share Plates’ including Hotate (scallop, baby eggplant, enoki mushroom, asparagus and truffle soy butter) and Popcorn Ebi (rock shrimp tempura, mango aioli). Also designed-to-be-shared, a selection of marinated and flame-grilled seafood and vegetable skewers will transport guests to the streets of Tokyo.
