Healthy buzz­words ga­lore but is the food any good?

What's On (Dubai) - - CONSUME -

Let’s face it: in a town that loves brunch as much as ours, it isn’t al­ways the best en­vi­ron­ment for your waist­line. But thanks to venues like the new café in­side Dubai Her­bal & Treat­ment Cen­tre (DHTC), you can make health a pri­or­ity when eat­ing out, with­out sac­ri­fic­ing on taste. Eat Well restau­rant is de­scribed as the first sci­ence-based nu­tri­tion venue in Dubai. It also serves as an in­tol­er­ant diner’s dream. The culi­nary nu­tri­tion­ist-de­signed menu caters to lit­er­ally all pal­ettes, from ve­gan and pa­leo di­eters to gluten- and sugar-free diehards. In­gre­di­ents are sourced fresh from lo­cal farms when­ever pos­si­ble and the chefs work in tan­dem with the sea­sons to en­sure the fresh­est food from farm gate to plate. Dig into farm-fresh heir­loom toma­toes (Dhs40), which, we’re told, are packed with ly­copene to boost an­tiox­i­dants. The teeny, red and yel­low lo­cal toma­toes are burst­ing with flavour and are served along­side camel ri­cotta, bal­samic pearls and sprouted arugula. It’s a lovely, sum­mery dish that looks as de­li­cious as it tastes. If you’re crav­ing some­thing hearty, the grilled salmon (Dhs75) with but­ter­nut squash makes for a flaw­lessly sea­soned en­trée with­out be­ing heavy. Top tip: book in for a spa treat­ment at DHTC be­fore lunch. You can pre-or­der your meal so it’s ready when you float out. Nour­ish­ment with a side of knead­ing? Yes, please… aDubai Her­bal & Treat­ment Cen­tre, Zabeel, Dubai, Sun to Thur 8am to 8pm, Fri and Sat 9am to 6pm. Tel: (054) 4766326. Taxi: DHTC.
