Time Out Says
The concept itself is cool, and the warehouse it’s homed in also hosts a load of workshops, including guitar making, meditation sessions, bottle cutting workshops, laughing yoga and even bike customisation.
And the menu is just as stripped back as the venue. Titled ‘Fill Me Pho’, it’s simple and to the point. You can choose between either a rice bowl (with vegetables, chicken or beef and a choice of teriyaki, peanut butter or coconut curry sauce), or Vietnamese pho with either vegetables, chicken or beef in a vegetable or beef broth.
The veggie pho is beautifully presented and comes with mismatched chopsticks – all very Insta-worthy. It’s topped with chilli, bean sprouts, edamame, lime, mushrooms, pickled ginger and raw bok choy leaves draped on the side of the bowl, which we’d prefer to have mixed in.
The broth itself is extremely mild (dare we say almost bland?) but chilli, lime and pickled ginger give it a much needed kick. It’s it’s light and fresh and for Dhs25 a bowl, it’s reasonably priced too. Plus a moist, moreish brownie is a good way to round off a meal.
Staying true to the zero-waste ethics, there’s a water dispenser, plus the receipt is sent via email.
If you’re attending one of the workshops it’s worth staying to eat at Kave, though it’s not quite a dining destination in itself.
