Abu Dhabi gets a new Latin Restaurant at Jumeirah at Etihad Towers

We’re always thrilled to hear that a new restaurant is opening up in the capital, but the announcement that Latin restaurant VaKaVa will soon be arriving is particularly exciting.

The cool outlet is described as the ‘mischievous twin sister’ to pan-Latin eatery Toro Toro, and it is due to open at Jumeirah at Etihad Towers on June 17.

Created by critically acclaimed chef Richard Sandoval, the venue is said to have a ‘vibrant and fiery’ personality.

It’s also passionate about producing amazing food, and the creative menu is set to include Mexican, Latin-Asian, Peruvian and pan-Latin flavours.

Richard Sandoval is a Mexican-born restaurateur who founded the Latin-restaurant group Richard Sandoval Hospitality.

The company has launched 45 restaurants across the globe, including branches in California, Colorado, Arizona, Texas, Florida, Georgia, Virginia, Washington D.C., New York, Mexico, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Qatar, Serbia and Tokyo.

We’re already dreaming of VaKaVa’s colourful dishes and the opening can’t come around quick enough.

Opening June 17. Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, West Corniche (02 811 5555).
