The sights, sounds and incredible flavours of the American Deep South are transported right into the heart of Dubai, courtesy of Cravin Cajun at Hotel Novotel Dubai Al Barsha. As soon as you step inside this amazing restaurant you'll feel like you're really in New Orleans, with the jazz music, ambience and rich aromas of Louisiana all faithfully and lovingly recreated as a feast for all the senses.
Executive chef Jeff Whitfield is a Louisiana native, so you can trust him to know his grits from his jambalaya, and to have the local knowledge, culinary expertise and exquisite attention to detail required to create a genuine and authentic Southern restaurant right here in Dubai.
Delicious versions of all your Southern favourites can be found at Cravin Cajun, such as dirty rice, fried chicken, shrimp and of course those incredible home-made grits. Highlights include the chef's very special Andouille chicken and the delicious cornbread waffles.
It's not just the food that's authentically Southern at Cravin Cajun – the whole atmosphere and ambiance of the restaurant loving recreates the culture and famous hospitality of the American South. Live jazz music is, of course, the soundtrack of New Orleans and it's in plentiful supply here. The restaurant is spacious, relaxed and welcoming, and the staff are friendly and attentive.
Still, the star of the show has to be the amazing dishes served up from the creole a la carte menu at Cravin Cajun. From the grits to the crab cakes – and from the smoked turkey gravy to the chilli-spiced maple syrup – you can be sure that everything brought to your table has been created with the same loving attention that you'd find if you were right back in Lousiana. Fresh ingredients and expert cooking combine to delight your taste buds and amaze your senses.
Conveniently located within the Novotel Dubai Al Barsha – a luxury hotel with great links to Dubai's major tourist attractions and business hubs – Cravin Cajun is a great choice for food lovers, whether you're already a fan of Lousiana cuisine or you're simply exploring the culinary globe one step at a time.
