ROSEWOOD ABU DHABI BRINGS AUTHENTIC CANTONESE CUISINE TO LIFE WITH THE LAUNCH OF ITS LATEST SIGNATURE RESTAURANT DAI PAI DONG
Nestled where Rosewood Abu Dhabi meets The Galleria, Dai Pai Dong will transport guests on a culinary journey featuring Cantonese street food straight from Hong Kong
The capital’s foodies are in for a treat with the upcoming opening of authentic Cantonese restaurant Dai Pai Dong on Al Maryah Island. The latest addition to Rosewood Abu Dhabi’s globe-spanning cuisine collection, Dai Pai Dong will bring a casual street food experience straight from Hong Kong to Abu Dhabi.
On February 19th and 20th, the restaurant will open to the public between 12:30 and 9:30pm for a sneak preview of the inviting décor and ambience. The interior was inspired by the traditional tale of the Dragon King and his nine sons, and includes carefully chosen Chinese artworks and artefacts.
The authentic menu will feature street food delicacies including homemade noodles, dim sum, and barbecued meats. Dai Pai Dong’s signature dish will be a succulent Roasted duck cooked in a traditional clay pot; the kitchen will have a specialist oven for roasting duck in a classic Chinese style. Head Chef He Jia and his expert team will prepare guests’ meals before their very eyes in the open kitchen.
He Jia says: ‘I’m thrilled to be a part of this fantastic new establishment. Dai Pai Dong will serve honest, vibrant Chinese food, prepared with passion and served with style.’ Born in Nanjing City, He Jia is a master of the Chinese culinary tradition. He came to the UAE in 2010, and has previously worked as the Chef de Cuisine at Toshi in Dubai and as the Senior Chef De Partie at Hakkasan in Emirates Palace, Abu Dhabi. His hard work and love for the culinary arts led him to Dai Pai Dong where he will head an experienced and skilled team.
‘Led by a chef as talented as He Jia, Dai Pai Dong will propel Rosewood Abu Dhabi’s stellar array of eateries to even greater heights’, says Luigi Romaniello, Managing Director of Rosewood Abu Dhabi. ‘With a uniquely creative approach, the restaurant will be a must visit destination on the growing Abu Dhabi dining scene, as well as increasing Rosewood Abu Dhabi’s appeal to the important and growing Chinese market in Abu Dhabi.’
Dai Pai Dong will feature a stylish speakeasy bar, in keeping with its fun, laid back atmosphere. It will be the perfect destination for relaxed lunches or lively dinners with family and friends.
Dai Pai Dong will bring a taste of China to Rosewood Abu Dhabi’s diverse global cuisine options, which already include relaxed Italian and Mediterranean restaurant Aqua; Catalonian fine dining at Catalan; authentic Lebanese mezzeh at Sambusek; and acclaimed Indian restaurant Spice Mela.
