Coya serves modern Peruvian cuisine at the Four Season in Jumeirah.
Coya is one of the latest London hotspots to land in Dubai and we were recently invited to experience the modern Peruvian cuisine.
When we arrived at Coya, we couldn’t help but admire the stately and regal decor which is oozing that old-world glamour vibe. We chose to sit in the terrace-albeit noisy, the live wall and cozy setting made it very comfortable.
Peruvian cuisine is heavily influenced by other countries including Spain and Japan, and the menu at Coya celebrates the diversity with its unique dishes.
We began with a bowl of slightly zingy and fiery Guacamole, exactly how we like it. Next came a selection from the ceviche and tiraditos menu-the two may be hard to distinguish between as they are both made with raw fish, but they are served in different manners and both worth trying. We adored the Sea Bream ceviche and the Yellow Fin tiradito- perfectly balanced in flavors, textures and taste and a visual delight too.
The Corn salad may sound boring but it is made using fat Andean corn kernels and drizzled in a light dressing it is worth trying out
The highlights of the meal however, were the Spicy Beef, that literally melted in the mouth and the Chilean Seabass that had a distinctly Japanese flavor and was served on a bed of Risotto. The Potato Bravias were moreish and a must-try also. If there is room for dessert than the Salted Caramel is indulgent, without being too sweet.
Coya offers a refined ambiance and inventive dishes that will leave the tastebuds tingling. The two drawbacks however, are the time limit on each table that makes it hard to sit back (following our good experience we came back another time for dinner as regular clients) and really enjoy the meal at your own leisure and the noisy terrace that faces Jumeirah Beach Road.
