24th St: Where Street Food meets Fine Dining

Being a fan of Dusit Thani Dubai's dining venues, I had mixed emotions when I heard PAX Italian restaurant will be closed down to give way to a fresh concept. I do love that restaurant, but fresh is good and I trust that it's all for the better.

So, when I saw that the new restaurant - 24th St. Asian Street Food - is finally open, it was more of excitement that rolled over me.

I had a good first impression with the ambiance! 24th St. Asian Street Food reminded me of hawker centers in Asia. It is casual and relaxed, yet not as loud and crowded. After all, this restaurant is tucked in the 24th floor of Dusit Thani - one of the finest hotels in Dubai!

24th St. Asian Street Food brings a unique Asian-streetfood-meets-fine-dining concept to Dubai's dining scene. It has four lively open kitchens; Kim's Korean for Korean food, Chatakana for Indian delicacies, Lucy Wong's for well-loved Chinese dishes, and Momo San for Japanese cuisine. 

This is a place to go to if you want a wide variety of food in one venue. The menu is big so it was inevitable to get lost somewhere, but the staff knows the dishes very well. We're thankful to Casty for walking us through 24th St.'s menu! He gave out excellent recommendations and even shared an overview of how the dishes are usually served in the streets.

Ed and I wanted to fully experience the concept of 24th St Asian Street Food, so we decided to mix and match, and have a dish or two from the four pillars of the restaurant. The thought is quite weird but it actually worked!

For starters, we had the complimentary Kimchi from Kim's Korean, Laksa from Lucy Wong's, Pani Puri Shots from Chatakana, and Duck Gyoza from Momo San.

Singapore Laksa Noodles: 65AED
This noodle dish has a perfect balance of cream and spice. One serving is enough for 2 to share.

These little crispy parcels hold a bold juicy flavor inside! Delicious with or without the dipping sauce!

For the main course, we had Wok-Fried Singaporean Chili Crab from Lucy Wong's and Beef Galbi Skewers from Kim's Korean.

Tender and deliciously marinated! Hands down, this is the best galbi in town!

And for dessert, we focused on Japanese sweets. We had Mochi Ice Cream and Japanese Cheese Cake from Momo San.

Pillowy and delicious, and perfectly complimented with fresh berries!

Overall, we had a uniquely wonderful dinner at 24th St. Asian Street Food. It was having street food without worrying about the risks (re safety and hygiene)! The menu says "taste your way around Asia" and our palates certainly enjoyed a gastronomic journey from the Far East to the South!
