Carluccio’s… Dubai Mall!

The first thing i had on my agenda when i visit Dubai is trying out Carluccio’s! I am a HUGE fan of the place (check my previous post here)… i wanted to know how the Dubai branch would compare to the UK ones…  and my husband wanted to try meat dishes for a change…

First impression? The place is huge, spacious, and feels like the UK ❤ If you have the right amount of concentration you could totally imagine your self in the UK, especially given that there were no Arabs dining in except us that night…

To be frank i wasn’t very happy… i am on a gluten-free diet right now and i knew that Carluccio’s UK had a gluten free menu but didn’t think the Dubai branch did… plus i was hungry, cranky, and jet lagged… to my surprise the moment i said “gluten free”… the gluten free menu was whipped up at once! It was full of pastas and appetizers and soups from the Actual Menu with a Twist! Way to Go!

I quickly knew what i wanted… the rice pasta with tomato & basil sauce! I missed pasta so much at that point and i didn’t care if rice pasta was disgusting or not… Butootee opted for the breaded chicken…

My pasta came… and i was skeptical… what if rice pasta tasted bad? or crunchy? You know what? It is EXACTLY the same as any other pasta… but the dish i was having was extraordinary… the sauce was AMAZING! and the size of the pasta was just right… i was having the time of my life enjoying every morsel of food that went into my mouth… trust me when i say this, there is not one place in Q8 that can whip up a pasta as good as this one.

That was Butoote’s breaded chicken… he enjoyed it very very VERY much…

It was very hard letting go of this heavenly dish ❤ but i forced my self to stop or i would have exploded! If you you thought that this is a mere pasta with tomato sauce, think again… for it’s the most amazing tomato sauce ever!

Afterwards we browsed the Carluccio’s deli and food shop… it was amazing -yet we didn’t buy anything… i don’t know why we were that dazed!-

In conclusion, the Carluccio’s branch in Dubai is in the same league as their branches in the UK! Now i have a closer alternative, i will not be missing Carluccio’s as badly ❤
