Taste Kitchen – Ticking all the boxes

Taste Kitchen (created by chef duo Nick Alvis and Scott Price) opened it’s first branch in Mercato Mall and today it now has 3 locations in Dubai.

 

If they had a mantra it would be simplicity is best.

The simple design of their restaurants, with their easy-to-read menu, along with a focus on fresh quality ingredients.

And it works.

The branch I frequent most is Silicon Oasis. Tucked away inside Cedre Shopping centre, this decent sized cafe offers both indoor and outdoor seating with modern/industrial decor. The service is great here with all the wait staff being super attentive.IMG_8952They serve warm bread with olive oil and vinegar whilst you wait (not long) for your mains to arrive.IMG_8953
The lemon and ginger water was nice and refreshing. I’ve also tried the virgin Pina Colada which was a tropical delight.IMG_8954For mains I’ve tried the Salmon with greens. The salmon was char grilled in Chinese 5 spice and served on a bed of beans spinach and cabbage.

However it’s the beef short rib served on a bed of mash with a side of greens that is the show stopper.
The tender beef literally melted in my mouth and the creamy mash and crisp greens were a nice accompaniment.IMG_8956

IMG_8958For dessert we tried the pear crumble which was a little too hard in terms of the crumble topping which made it difficult to chew but the warm pear inside was a nice change from your standard apple filling.IMG_8961Overall Taste Kitchen offers a clean, fresh cafe concept with healthy options too which keep me going back for more.
