Baker & Spice: Boasting local, seasonal produce and one of the best views in Dubai, Baker & Spice certainly has the spark to rekindle a passion for fresh food. The rustic-yet-modern interior entices diners through the doors, where they will find a delicious salad selection, homemade cakes, conserves and a long, central table piled high with gloriously colourful fruit and vegetables. The menu changes regularly depending on what the B&S buyers find in the local markets and you can certainly taste the quality in the ingredients. For a fresh appetiser, dip into the salad bar, which featured (on our visit at least) rice salads, aubergine and slow-roasted tomato salad with feta, cucumber raita and a zesty beetroot, carrot and coriander combo. For mains, the pasta, and especially the homemade gnocchi, was particularly good, accompanied by ever-changing seasonal vegetable fillings or meatballs and fresh tomato ragout.
