Latin restaurant opens doors in Dubai

The Oberoi Dubai’s new Waka restaurant brings a pivotal piece of Latin America to Dubai, complete with a menu of the region’s most sought-after dishes, infused with a creative culinary twist.

Deriving from the word 'huaca' which means ‘blessed’, Waka creates a space where guests can enjoy a taste of Latin culture.  From the vibrant decoration on the floors to the artwork adorning the walls, every detail has been carefully curated.  Launched by the team behind the successful eatery, Craft Café in d3, Waka's vision is to offer a relaxed and immersive space for patrons to unwind and enjoy their dining experience.  The cuisine is a fusion of Latin American flavours combined with Japanese seasonings, using French techniques. With unparalleled passion instilled in every aspect of the brand, the team has worked hard to create something innovative and unique.

Executive Chef Roberto Segura has prepared a menu that will offer an array of delectable dishes, including the Hot Rock Ceviche, cooked to perfection Beef Pachamama and a sweet ending in the form of the Coco Loco.

The space is divided into two distinct areas – the main restaurant which will seat up to 90 guests, and the Chef’s Bar seating up to eight patrons.  

The Chef's Bar will offer patrons the opportunity to experience a tailor-made and interactive menu with the dynamic Chef Roberto cooking live. Displaying culinary art at its best, this truly interactive experience will give guests a true taste of the hospitality Waka will be offering.

Waka's aim is to create an unforgettable dining experience where guests are immersed into a stunning atmosphere and can enjoy creative and innovative food and drinks, inspired by the best flavours of Latin America with an Asian twist.
