Wowzers…this may be my little new hidden gym in Dubai. I came to Salero, which is in the Kempinski Mall of the emirates, for lunch today and it was just awesome. I am not usually a fan of tapas resturants because I always feel I have to order a million dishes to get full and the food is never that good but Salero was totally different. This place has a homely casual feel to it which is great, plus they have a big bar in the middle of the restaurant so you can come for just a pint as well. We tried several things on the menu but my favorite was the oxtail and the fried eggplant. The octopus and the lamb were also really good as well. For desert I had the rice pudding and it too was great…lets just say I got after today for lunch, treadmill time. The staff were really friendly and fun plus they were all from Spain so they know their stuff when it comes to the food and the menu. Price wise it was ok, it was about 50aed for a tapas and you only need 4 if you are 2 people. They also have some nice deals if you do different tapas combinations like hot and cold tapas. The manager also told us they have a flamenco dances on wednesday night which is cool and a DJ every night so definitely going to come back and hit this place up for dinner. Overall this place is a winner in my books and not one thing to complain about.
