Lately vegan cuisine has gained a lot of popularity in Dubai. Finding a unique way to promote this is Freedom pizza’s vegan sausage pizza. Yes you read it right.. It’s a sausage and made our of all vegan ingredients such as soy and more.
This was my first time trying a vegan sausage and even the vegan cheese. With strong base sauce and generous toppings, this pizza is a hit! Along with my pizza I also tried superfood salad which was delicious too! My only concern was the packaging as it was too flimsy to handle.
To end my meal I tried vegan Banoffee which I wasn’t a big fan of. However it is commendable that Freedom pizza offers this particular dessert because it’s difficult to replicate in vegan form. The Strawberry vegan Cheesecake was delicious too!
Overall, freedom pizza’s vegan range is a must try for those who are on vegan diet and even those who aren’t. The ingredients are all of top quality and organic. Freedom pizza is commited to offering delicious food at reasonable prices. Visit thier website to know more about thier interesting journey.

Use of Molecular gastronomy and dry ice in food presentation is the hottest trend of the town as it makes the food more ‘instagram-able’. Bringing in the twist to this concept are the new entrants Tableya
Tableya, a concept born and raised in Dubai promises fusion of Indian and middle Eastern cuisine along with gastronomy experience. Does it live up to the hype? Read along to know.
Located at properties of Bay Square, this restaurant accommodates both shisha smokers and non smokers. At first impression Tableya has interesting decor, bright turquoise sofas, metal light pieces and wooden tables that look gorgeous!
For food we were offered a whole lot of variety. Generally, I am not someone who eats a lot at one time as I simply cannot but the food was so good that I had to try all. The amuse Bouche, Kaitafi Chaat had a rather dramatic presentation and was bursting with flavors. This,was just the teaser and what followed were just some more delicious dishes that I highly would recommend to try.
Our appetizers, katafi paneer, baba ganoush cornetto, granola chaat, pani puri shots,wadapops, channajor felafel and thepla quesadilla. They all needed to be mentioned as all were presented stunningly! The weak links from the appetizers I felt was the pani puri shots that were definitely good to share but tastewise were just about ok. Also the granola chat topped with dahi spheres was a tad too sweet for my liking.
Our main courses were winter vegetables, smoked daal and tiffin pav bhaji. These dishes maybe sounding simple but the taste was certainly not. Complex flavors blended so well with each other and tasted simply delicious! My favorite was the smoked daal that I had with assorted naans, it tasted absolutely fabulous! I am definitely going back for more of that daal and also the tiffin pav bhaji which evoked nostalgia and made me feel like I am back at Juhu beach trying out the Pav bhaji at stalls. Also the mini buns served along were super cute!
The chefs insisted that we try the desserts and were been sent coconut creme brulee and kunafa cheesecake. The former was light and perfect end to the meal, served with refreshing berry sorbet the contrast in flavours left one wanting for more. The latter was rich, essentially a tres leches kinds of cake topped with kunafa and served on a bed of saffron infused milk. Needless to say, both presented gorgeously!
Overall, Tableya is a casual dine in with some seriously good food and equally good shisha. Often shisha places are not known to have a wide variety of food but at Tableya things are done differently. The prices are reasonable and the staff is very hospitable. My visit was in the first week of restaurant’s opening and their team of professionals handled it well.

What is a party without some chips n dips? Whether it’s a house party or you having chips n dips at burjuman, guaranteed it’s a party in your mouth!
I was sent an amazing range of dips and loads of chips to try. These are just delicious dips, especially the sweet and sour chili cheese which also happens to be their top seller is simply divine! Also the Seven layered Mexican dip is spectacular! Cheese, guacamole, salsa, herbs.. This dip was over in just few minutes!
They do offer delicious range of sweet dips too. My favorite be in the red velvet dip which goes so well with graham crackers
All their dips are vegetarian and freshly prepared by them. I love their concept and the best part is that it’s really close to Vox cinemas in Burjuman so instead of ordering your regular nachos and cheese I would highly suggest you to try out the Chips N dips.

Are you obsessed with middle eastern cuisine? I think I am a bit because I cannot live without hummus and my favorite halloumi. Giving a twist to these simple ingredients a modern concept of Saj Bistro was created.
Located conveniently at Aspin Towers, Saj Bistro offers a wide selection of burgers, wraps, face ups (manakeesh).
For appetizers, I ordered the quinoa salad and my guest opted for eggs sunny side up, fresh juices and halloumi wrap. The pesto halloumi wrap was delicious and interesting.
Must tries from the menu are definitely the akawwi cheese faceup that doesn’t only look delicious but the stringy cheese is a sight for cheese lovers.
For desserts, we opted for lotus waffle with ice cream and baklawa with ice cream.The former was light and not overtly sweet except the sauces while the latter was too sweet for my liking.
Overall, Saj bistro serves delicious fusion of leventine cuisine. Their quick service and delivery system sets them apart from the restaurants catering similar cuisine.
Yamaha brand is always associated with fast bikes. Now I am not a bike expert or enthusiast in anyway but I do enjoy looking at the designs. Did you know Yamaha also has a cafe for bike enthusiasts? Yes! It’s located at Boxpark.
Surprisingly they do have a decent variety of vegetarian sushi dishes as well and couple of other dishes that make into a comfortable meal. Decor wise, the cafe is essentially a store where you can purchase Yamaha merchandise and also play games in their gaming area.
My guest and I tried out wolverine sushi, Viking mozzarella sushi,cucumber rolls, vegetable noodles, charcoal cheesecake and matcha tea. All dishes were definitely flavorsome and interesting. The staff are super friendly and do help with suggestions.
Overall, it was an interesting visit and my bike enthusiast guest was overjoyed. It’s a great hangout place though I feel the prices for the dishes are a bit on higher side for a cafe standard.

What do you recall when I talk about the brand Barilla? Do you recall the pasta, delicious bottled sauces? I have been using them for years. Did you know Barilla brand have restaurants too? They have various restaurants across USA and now have two in Dubai.
Barilla has a very casual and open style restaurant at Dubai Festival City Mall. Wooden tables and comfortable seating is ideal for a restaurant located at the mall.
We tried the Panzanella salad that was served with creamy goats cheese. This was refreshing and a super healthy option. My guest opted for the classic burrata which was served with roma tomatoes and aragula leaves. Coming to the main courses, I opted for the tortellini stuffed with ricotta and spinach and my guest went for the pasta primavera. As a cheese lover, the tortellini dish is heavenly. I was in love and still am so much that I did order a takeaway of the same a while back. I love how delicate little parcels gave me so much happiness! Whether you are vegetarian or not, do not miss out on this stunning Alfredo tortellini dish. My guest’s pasta dish was simple, flavorful and wholesome as it had a lot of farm fresh vegetables. We did try the pizza as well. At Barilla, the pizza is served in rectangular shape, I wasn’t so much of a fan of the pizza. I just felt it needed a bit more flavoring from the tomato sauce at the base.
For drinks we opted the grapefruit fizz and the basil spritzer, both absolutely delicious! Stunning presentation and great to accompany the classic Italian meal. Though I always prefer wine with my Italian food but these drinks were a good non alcoholic option.
The desserts at Barilla are at display right near the entrance so the passerbys are definitely tempted to try them out. We took a lot of time contemplating on what to try and then finally settled for pistachio cake and chocolate mousse cake. This is the first time I have preferred the pistachio over chocolate, the cake was super moist and has this layer of wafer biscuit at the bottom which adds a crunchy element to the dish. The hazelnut chocolate crunch mousse cake was delicious and simple. There are other desserts too like the strawberry tart, tiramisu and many more that can be viewed at the display.
We ended our meal with some flavorful Lavazza coffee.
The staff at Barilla were a gem! Really helpful and always there to give suggestions and even help me pronounce some Italian terms. I did have a brief meet with the chef Rita Fegatilli and her team. A true Italian with passion for food and she was very excited to talk about the techniques and dishes prepared.
If you are located near Dfc or are at the mall, Barilla is the place to try out. The food is take on classic Italian flavors. The dishes are your usual pasta and pizza but the treatment of freshest ingredients by the chef make all the difference to the dish.
Barilla will soon be introducing breakfast concept. They also have a branch at outlet village mall.
