Taking influences the diverse roots of Jamaican cuisine, the menus offer modern renditions of island specialties like jerk chicken, escovitch fish, oxtail and curried goat – seasoned with scotch bonnet peppers and fiery jerk spices. In short, Miss Lily’s is an island vacation in the middle of a busy cosmopolitan city.
As the Jamaican saying goes, “Betta belly buss dan good food waste.” Which means, it’s better to overeat than to waste good food. Miss Lily’s opened their first international outpost inside Dubai’s Sheraton Grand Hotel on Sheikh Zayed Road in 2016, bringing their highly celebrated Caribbean cuisine and sunny vibes to the Middle East for the first time. Executive Chef Adam Schop has curated a menu that draws from the diverse roots of Jamaican cuisine featuring signature Miss Lily’s dishes like Jerk Chicken, Oxtail Stew, Grilled Jerk Corn, Jerk Ramen and more. Chef Schop has created many dishes that are exclusive to the Dubai outpost including Pimento & Tamarind Glazed Lamb Ribs, Chili King Crab and Slow Roasted Pimento Short Rib. The New York-born Jamaican eatery, Dubai’s latest hot spot, opened recently to great success.
Miss Lily’s gives an 80s-style Jamaican diner vibe with black-and-blue linoleum checkerboard floors and walls adorned with Jamaican vinyl record covers. The multicolored disco ball, a custom-built Jamaican speaker stack, and walls lined with ‘Scotch Bonnet’ hot sauce are all impressive. Their wall décor to the record-shaped tables, music is an integral part of the Miss Lily’s theme. Music and brunches are very popular with the best ska and reggae tunes in town. For a more exclusive experience than what the dining room and lounge areas offer, one can book the Chef’s Table for dinner. Secluded, it seats up to 16 people and is located just off the kitchen. Providing the element of privacy, direct interaction with the chef, and cool décor are just three of its many perks.
