Mama Zonia, Tropical Restaurant, Bar and Lounge Terrace
Hidden in the depths of Dubai Marina, the wonders of Mama Zonia, a new exotic urban jungle, await to be discovered. Make a great escape into the hedonistic wilderness and be led on a mesmerizing journey through the Amazon rainforest where inspiring creativity ignites the senses at every turn.
A tropical chic restaurant, bar and lounge terrace; Mama Zonia has been created to challenge the status quo and allure boundary pushing innovators to indulge in this extrovert experience.
As guests take their first steps into this paradise, they are welcomed by live tribal drummers evoking the sounds of an Amazon tribe, before taking in the vibrant and dramatic visuals of the open plan grill kitchen, where methods of cooking involve ‘sand grilling’ and overwhelming flavors of tropical cuisine are created.
In keeping with Mama Zonia’s exuberant personality, here the interiors are bold, stylish and trendy, boasting a larger than life Mango Tree draping the entrance, animated tropical wallpapers, hand painted murals and a plethora of lush jungle foliage, with white orchids and planters suspended from the ceiling to create an enchanting utopia-like ambience. Relax into an eclectic combination of classic mid-century cocktail chairs and contemporary adaptations of tropical cane and rattan and prepare for the eccentric tasting journey ahead.
Wide Selection of Multicultural Dishes
A focal point in Mama Zonia is the glamorous cocktail bar, reminiscent of Havana’s legendary ‘La Floridta’, which serves up classic libations with a tropical twist such as the Gardenia Blue and The Piranha Bowl. The dedicated Raw Bar yields a tantalizing selection of freshly caught fish such as the Red Snapper Ceviche which comes marinated in coconut, habanero and pineapple, with a topping of truffle pearls. The Yuzu Ponzu watermelon creation comes in an avocado sauce topped with puffed quinoa, each dish boasting its own outlandish flavor profile.
In true South American style, guests will open their taste-buds to a selection of multicultural and trendy tapas plates that are ideal for sharing amongst couples or groups of friends. The MAMA’z Prime Beef Short Ribs which are cooked in the log fire for 14 hours and the Hokkaido Scallops in the shell are undoubtedly two dishes that will ensure diners are left pining for more from this unusual and euphoric menu.
