The Lunchbox / Garhoud, Dubai5 days ago
This is the second time I tried a lunchbox restaurant, and this time I went for veggie. Usually I am not such a big fan of veggie food, but I have to confess the "aloo gobi" is absolutly great !!! This dish is a MUST TRY !
Novikov / Trade Centre Area, Dubai2 weeks ago
I was grabbing a drink at the bar at Novikov with a friend recently and had not planned on eating there as she had plans to meet up with her family afterwards. Besides, I had heard bad things, particularly about the vegetarian food. A drink or two into it, I figured I'd just browse through the menu to see for myself. I was pleasantly surprised to see that they actually have a pretty large selection of vegetarian dishes, which I guess they added recently. As it turns out, my friend's dinner got cancelled at the last minute so we decided to just stay on for dinner. She is vegetarian as well so we ordered a couple of dishes to share. The salt and pepper tofu was well balanced with a nice crispy exterior and light and fluffy center. It is deep fried though, so not exactly healthy - but tasty nonetheless. We skipped over the salads and maki rolls and went straight for the dim sum and mains, although the the "Rishi maki roll" did look intriguing. I didn't get a chance to ask them what was in it. The shiitake dumplings have a nice earthy taste and texture and are topped with some crispy grains - a must order for veggies. The truffle choi sum wasn't as flavorful as we expected but the grilled asparagus was fresh and crisp and served in a light sauce. The side of shiitake mushroom rice topped with truffle was fantastic and complemented the asparagus wonderfully. Since we were both watching our summer bodies, we decided to skip dessert this time, but I do plan on going back on a cheat day to give it a try, along with some other veggie dishes I missed out on!
Coya - Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach / Jumeirah 2, Dubai2 weeks ago
Ever since its opening, Coya Dubai has been bound with raving reviews and has created quite a buzz in the dining scene. This culinary splendour serves Peruvian cuisine and is a branch from London. The interiors of this place are remarkably outstanding! The decor team of Coya have outdone themselves with the overall setting. The place includes a pisco lounge and a dining area with an enthralling vibe and some brilliant music. The cocktails offered here are immensely interesting and theres a diverse selection available. I got the popcorn sour which is an inventive version of the classic whiskey sour. Made with a base of Macallan, the drink tasted excellent and was presented with exception. I was gratified with the amount of options available for vegetarians. Corn is considered one of the native vegetables of central america and a lot of the dishes here have corn as a core ingredient. Being a group of 4, i got to try a lot of their veg offerings. The Asparagus Peruanos and Mushroom based dish Calabacines y Hongos both tasted nice and contained a punch of interesting flavours. But the following dishes stood out above the rest. The guacamole served here was top notch which was accompanied with amazing crispy corn tortillas The corn salad comprises of simple ingredients put together to form a delectable dish The crispy potatoes with the huancaina sauce was one of a kind and was swiped clean within 5 minutes of its arrival. The tofu skewers were cooked to perfection and well seasoned. My favourite dish of the day was the Cazuela Vegatariana. This consists of rice cooked in an iron pot infused with vegetables and melted goats cheese. Do not leave without trying the Chocolate Fundido for the most satisfying end to your meal. One drawback with Coya is that their dish pricing in accordance with the potion size is a tad bit unfair. But in regards to ambience, service, quality, taste and overall experience Coya is refreshingly Fantastic!
Izakaya - JW Marriott Marquis Dubai / Business Bay, Dubai1 month ago
Being Vegan limits me to certain cuisines I can dine at, especially Japanese but my husband (also vegetarian) had a real craving for Japanese, so we thought we'd try Izakaya last week. Hidden away in a corner on the 6th floor of the Marriott Marquis, you are invited in by quirky comments on the wall such as 'Miso Hungry' and 'Wassaaabi dude' to a delightful hostess waiting to take you into the restaurant. The Japanese are known for their warm greetings and the restaurant was no exception, all the staff (Japanese or not), all greeted us with friendly smiles and Konichi wa's! We were sat and introduced to a lovely Wasabi Girl, you'll know who she is by her extravagant luminous green hair. She told us to call her when we wanted freshly grated wasabi straight from the plant, which was a unexpected rare surprise in comparison to the processed wasabi you normally receive in other restaurants. The waitress then rushed over and gave us menus on iPads, which meant we could order straight from there. We advised her that I was vegan which she was knowledgable on and she advised us immediately on the starters and sushi available. We opted for the veg tempura and the kappa maki sushi, both which were delectable. Whilst we were waiting, the specialist sake waiter came on with a traditional cart full of different sakes. He asked us if we wanted to try some (on the house) and we 'reluctantly' accepted. 5 delightful sakes later, and lets say we were happy to see the starters had arrived! For mains, I had the Udon noodles and my husband had the vegetarian fried rice. Normally, we do share our meals, but on this occasion we were too happy with our own choices there was no chance of that happening. Overall, for a cuisine that specialises in fish and beef ingredients, we were very happy with the availability of vegetarian choices on the menu along with the authenticity of the flavours and taste of our orders. It is also worth mentioning that they also have teppanyaki tables available and they have a vegetarian set menu available for this too. We would definitely go back!
