Healthy, clean eating restaurant opens in Dubai

Sesame recruits ex-Ramusake and Gordon Ramsay Group chef for healthy food spot


A new healthy restaurant has opened up in Dubai’s Sunset Mall on Jumeirah Beach Road, which promises a passionate dining experience dedicated to nourishment and healthy dishes.

Sesame is offering a “plant-forward” approach to its cuisine, and has recruited the assistance of chef Gohei Kishi – the Michelin-star chef who was previously the head of Asian cuisine concepts for Gordon Ramsay Group, and the group executive chef for Ramusake. For this reason, we’re already excited by what to expect from Dubai’s latest opening.

The restaurant claims its motive is to provide health-conscious, clean, delicious and wholesome foods that nourish the body.

“Here, we offer dishes that not only focus on flavour and taste, but also share valuable insights on how they can have therapeutic applications for illness prevention, recovery and optimal health,” says founding partner Neha Jamani, who studied to become a holistic chef in California before opening Sesame. “Sesame is a new crop of plant-forward food, combining cooking techniques, style and flavours from around the globe.”

The recently opened restaurant has only unveiled a couple of new items so far, but one of its main dishes looks to be the deep root salad, comprised of carrots, sunchokes, potatoes, turnips and mixed greens in a ginger miso dressing. It claims that sunchokes are packed with the inulin fibre, a naturally occurring prebiotic which promotes the growth of beneficial microorganisms in the gut, which allegedly leads to lower levels of anxiety, depression and stress.

Sesame also claims to be highly sensitive of dietary requirements, so if you’re looking for a place serving gluten-, dairy-, soy- or nut-free grub, then this is the place for you.

Open daily 7.30am-10pm. Level 1, Sunset Mall, Jumeirah Beach Road, Umm Suqeim (04 339 1300).
