ROKA launches exclusively on Deliveroo with first-ever iftar menu

Rainer Becker’s award-winning robatayaki concept ROKA has launched an exclusive delivery partnership with Deliveroo. The restaurant will be offering its robatayaki cuisine.

Launched in February 2020 in the ME Hotel at The Opus in Business Bay, ROKA has brought its style of contemporary Japanese cooking and urban design to Downtown Dubai. This is the ROKA brand’s first Middle East opening since the flagship location – found on London’s Charlotte street – opened in 2004.

The specially curated menu will include signature dishes from the robata such as yakitori-negima yaki – robata grilled chicken skewers with spring onion and the Kankoku fu kohitsuji, lamb cutlets with Korean spices and sesame cucumber, as well as the gindara no saikyo-yaki, black cod in marinated yuzu miso. Other menu favourites such as maki rolls, tempura and salads will also be available.

In addition to the a la carte menu, ROKA is also launching its first-ever Iftar menu for the holy month of Ramadan. The extensive menu includes miso soup, beef and ginger dumplings, baby spinach with sesame dressing and a spicy mixed seafood maki, followed by a rice hotpot with Japanese mushrooms, tenderstem broccoli miso and a choice of either the beef or salmon fillet.

All orders are accompanied with steamed rice and dates. The iftar menu is priced at AED 195 per person.
