La Carnita opens its doors in Abu Dhabi


Authentic Mexican cuisine meets modern street style at the launch of La Carnita in Abu Dhabi

La Carnita, the Mexican street food restaurant, has found a new home in Abu Dhabi. Diners are welcomed to their new location at Yas Bay Waterfront on Yas Island, which features the same essence as the partner restaurants in Dubai and Canada, exuding a luxurious ambience, great soundtracks and fabulous cuisine.

Expect to encounter neon signs and street art, wood paneling and a mix of rattan-style furniture. Designed by Canadian designer Ian Rydberg, founder and lead designer of Solid Design Creative, plenty of seating is arranged in booths adorned with red leather sofas that provide a semi-private dining room feel. Alternatively, you can choose to dine al fresco, soaking up the picturesque views of the water and Yas Island.

From tacos and nachos to ceviche and churros to brunches, happy hours, girls’ nights and a special kids’ menu, La Carnita offers something for every palate.

La Carnita brunch is a Mexican fiesta that takes place every Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. Image sharing platters of spicy fries, dips and fries, Hamachi ceviche and Cali salad; followed by quesadillas or tacos; and churros for a delicious sweet ending.

Ladies can sip complimentary lime-infused concoctions every Thursday from 8-11 p.m. at La Carnita Ladies’ Night, while immersing themselves in the upbeat tunes of a DJ. When hunger pangs strike, opt for bites from the a la carte menu.

One for the little ones, La Carnita Kids’ Menu offers dishes such as fries and guac, corn butter, fries, quesadillas and crispy chicken. Sweet treats to finish include churros, ice cream, or paletas (a Mexican lime or monster cookie flavored popsicle).
