My review for Highway 311 – Now that I moved closer to the JLT area of Dubai, I am more exposed to the different restaurants that are offered here. I was craving some guacamole and ceviche, so that is when I noticed that there is one restaurant here that serves these items. Highway 311 is a Peruvian and Latin American concept where the dishes are inspired by those from South America.
I started off my dinner with the guacamole because when you’re at a Peruvian restaurant, it is an absolute must to have guacamole. The guacamole came with a side of chips and it was just right to share among two people. The only critic I have, was for the guacamole, where there could have more chilli peppers added to make it spicer but that is my own preference and next time I will definitely ask for it to be extra spicy.
The ceviche was presented nicely in the well known martini glass. The raw fish was marinated in lime, onions, and peppers and was delicious. The nuts and potatoes were a nice added touch.
I ordered the tiger prawns as my main course and this dish came with fries, I did not know that I could have chose a side to go along with it as the server never asked if I would like fries or something else. I unfortunately, did not touch the fries and would have been happier to have the prawns with quinoa. The tiger prawns were grilled and it came with a mild sweet and sour sauce.
This restaurant deserves a rating of 4/5.
I ordered the ceviche for 25DHS, guacamole for 25DHS, and the tiger prawns for 60DHS.
The pricing of the dishes here was affordable where each portion size was good enough for one person.
The service that I received here was a bit slow where the server was busy handling pre ordered items as it was iftar time.
My drinks could have came to the table faster, but it didn’t, and that was the reason why this place lost one point from me.
The ambience of this restaurant was rustic where wood was the main theme for the place. The decor was lively where there was a story to be told in each piece.
