‘DISHTRICT’, is a new addition to the homegrown restaurants in Dubai. It located in the beautiful location of Jumeirah’s Wasl 51. As we all know that, traveling was really challenging at the moment, with this thought DISHTRICT is promising to take diners on a ‘culinary adventure’ around the world via its unique menu of fusion.
From the Middle East to Malaysia and India to Italy, the menu features a fusion of foodie favourites from across the globe. The ambiance is done artistically with pretty furniture & murals on the walls. Staff is very friendly & welcoming.
We started with some refreshing drinks such as Kiwi & Basil Tom Collins, Passion Fruit Daiquiri, Power House, Banana Colada. All four drinks were really good and the Banana Colada was my favorite among them.
After that they served us their signature mushroom soup and Almond soup. Really nice. Then comes the appetizers, the pretty Avocado edamame’ mango salad was as delicious as it looks, with all the fresh ingredients it was just perfect to start with. Charcoal Truffle Mushroom Maki- Black sushi rice stuffed with truffled mushroom, this bite sized delicacy was just perfect. Pretzel Chicken fries served with bazooka sauce, this was something the kids really loved. Dishtrict Dynamite Shrimps with an Indian fusion, we loved the way they served it in a Papad cone covered with bhel. Tahini Nachos was An epic blend of Mexican chips with a middle eastern dressing this was followed by Oman Chips Kumpir, a Turkish style stuffed potato with broccoli, mushroom & cheese, served with lots of cheese on top and garnished with crushed Omani chips. A unique & delicious combination. We also tried the a modern version of kebab paratha called Lamb Gulaoti Tacos, which was soft tacos with crumbled lamb kebab and mint sauce. A Japanese version of the traditional chicken tikka Tandoori Chicken Yakitori, was simply amazing Deconstructed Falafel flatbread, which is flatbread baked with falafel topped with lettuce, pickles and tahini, was another fusion dish which we loved a lot. So, That was just for the starters.
Now comes the main course. We tried Katsu Biryani, a traditional Biryani rice served with Katsu curry, sweet potato and eggplant katsu chicken. Never thought Biryani can be served in this way too and surprisingly it was delicious. Malay Charcoal Fish, a Malaysian style fish fillet served on broccoli rice, one of the best fish fillet we ever tried.
We all have a sweet tooth, so we ended our fusion meal with interesting desserts like the Gulab Jamun Cheesecake, The Walnut and Rose Petal Halwa which is served in a Golden globe & a must to try at Dishtrict.
