Menus and dé­cor that are a lit­tle out of the or­di­nary

What's On (Abu Dhabi) - - BEST MALL EATS -

Acai Ex­press

The acai berry is one of those su­per­foods that ex­perts reckon is full of an­tiox­i­dants, can aid with re­cov­ery after ex­er­cise and can even help you lose weight. The small red and pur­ple fruits look like a cross be­tween a grape and blue­berry and they’re served in milk­shakes and smooth­ies at Ex­press, but What’s On is a fan of their Spe­cial Meal menu – the berry is served like a sor­bet in a big plas­tic cup with a va­ri­ety of in­gre­di­ents. We rec­om­mend Co­conut Dreams – it comes with acai, con­densed milk, milk pow­der, pineap­ple, co­conut and mixed nuts.

Yas Mall, Yas Is­land, Abu Dhabi, Sat to Wed 10am to 11pm, Thur and Fri 10am to mid­night. Tel: (02) 6423855. Taxi: Yas Mall. yas­

Sushi Art

The Gal­le­ria’s classy Ja­panese res­tau­rant adds a Euro­pean twist to some dishes (thanks to some in­put from ac­claimed French chef Joel Robu­chon), the menu is huge, of­fer­ing ev­ery­thing from ce­viches to soups to maki rolls, and equally cre­ative, and the dishes are all fresh and colour­ful.

The Gal­le­ria, Abu Dhabi Global Mar­ket Square, Al Maryah Is­land, Sat to Wed 11am to 11pm, Thur and Fri 11am to mid­night. Tel: (04) 4495702. Taxi: The Gal­le­ria, Al Maryah Is­land.

Bik­ers Café

The dé­cor here is worth a visit alone – the walls are lined with pho­tos of peo­ple on mo­tor­bikes and bi­cy­cles (in­clud­ing celebri­ties) – and the menu is strong, par­tic­u­larly when it comes to break­fast op­tions (pep­per­oni omelettes, any­one?) Service has been a lit­tle er­ratic on some of our vis­its but that’s a mi­nor com­plaint – this is one of the city’s most unique mall of­fer­ings. It is a pop­u­lar week­end haunt for ex­pat and Emi­rati fam­i­lies.

Al Seef Vil­lage Mall, Abu Dhabi, Sun to Thur 7am to mid­night, Fri and Sat 8am to mid­night. Tel: (02) 4443942. Taxi: Al Seef Vil­lage Mall, near Khal­ifa Park. bik­er­
