In the battle for Dubai’s best ramen, chef Reif Othman comfortably quashes the competition. One sip of this rich, savoury, umami-packed broth and it’s a tough call whether to demolish it or bathe in it. (Bring your trunks just in case.) An acclaimed name on the city’s restaurant scene, Othman’s Japanese Kushiyaki serves up a variety of Japanese dishes, from uramaki to sando, each burnished with his own distinct twist. A force – and feast – to be reckoned with.
