I love Caramel lounge, and have been going since it opened. However, I always associated it with a night place and never thought it even opened during the day. I recently went to catch up with a friend over quick lunch, and decided to check out the newly relaunched business menu at Caramel. Being someone that never has time during the day, and want something quick – this really is a great option during the week.
Restaurant name and location: Caramel Lounge at DIFC, Dubai.
Cuisine: They consider themselves an American restaurant, but their cuisine is quite international.
Atmosphere: I was there during lunch time, for their business lunch so a lot different to their night atmosphere. This is quieter with a corporate feel.
What they say: Caramel is a contemporary American Restaurant & Lounge in DIFC, Dubai.
What to order: I was there for their newly relaunched business lunch.
3 course business lunch
A choice of petite plate:
Chicken lettuce bites (recommended, one of their signature starters!)
Caramel veggie roll
Seared Kobe Beef Carpaccio
Kobe beef bolognese
Buffalo chicken wrap (tastes like chicken wings in a wrap.)
Chinese chicken salad (delicious. Light, refreshing and filling… The added crunch from the cashews is just perfection.)
A choice of side:
Service: Our server, Arnold was a joy.
What I loved:
-Straight to the point, you can be in and out within an hour.
-At night, the restaurant is quite dark – I like the natural light during the day. Refreshing…
-Affordability. 79 AED per person is a score!
What I didn’t love as much:
-I wish more of their signature dishes were featured in the business lunch menu like the sliders, dynamite shrimps or shawarma bites.
-Don’t expect it to be buzzing like the evening, It’s definitely quieter. Leave the business talks for day and entertaining for night.
Bill for two: 79AED per person
