ROSELEAF

Can a proper hot food menu draw peo­ple to the beloved café’s new­est lo­ca­tion?

What's On (Dubai) - - CONSUME -

We adore al­most ev­ery­thing about Roseleaf café in Dubai Gar­den Cen­tre. We just wished it had more hot food op­tions – the spot’s tiny kitchen means they have to get clever with counter food. Well, it seems they were lis­ten­ing, as there’s now a Roseleaf with a proper kitchen: and it’s un­usu­ally perched in a hall­way be­tween the gym and spa at the Emi­rates Golf Club. Def­i­nitely try the pulled short rib on coun­try loaf (Dhs55). The slow-cooked meat is saucy and soft, while the apple and cel­ery add a nice counter punch of fresh crunch. Our other top picks are the three-way av­o­cado smash (Dhs46), which is ba­si­cally three va­ri­eties of avo’ toast on three pieces of sweet pump­kin loaf (the loaf bor­ders on cake, but we’re into it). A fresh and healthy op­tion is the ‘ body break­fast’ (Dhs50), aka a poached egg with Greek yo­ghurt, red po­tato, charred greens and sautéed chilli kale. The lemon zest in the yo­ghurt was a favourite el­e­ment of this par­tic­u­lar brekkie bowl. And yes, the flat whites here are as great as those at the Gar­den Cen­tre, but the sur­rounds aren’t as tran­quil. So, if it’s an ex­cel­lent flat white in a leafy-green-en­vi­ron­ment you’re af­ter, go to Roseleaf in Dubai Gar­den Cen­tre. But if you’re up for a hot break­fast more than you are am­bi­ence, try this one out in­stead. aEmi­rates Golf Club, daily 8am to 6pm. Tel: (04) 3555241.
