Time Out Says

Some of Dubai’s mall eats aren’t simply meals that you fit in before heading to the supermarket or on the way home from school with the kids – they’re much more than that. And tashas Marina Mall is a prime example.

Décor is simple, with wooden chairs and a hint of luxury, as chandeliers with embossed lashings of fabric reflect golden undertones on a plentiful display of cakes, fruit baskets and more. The outdoor area overlooks charming views of the Marina.

The spot comes from restaurateur Natasha Sideris, the name behind other successful tashas cafés, as well as Flamingo Room by tashas and the newly-opened Avli in DIFC, so we have high hopes, which are met.

Opting for the famous veg on toast, our village bread arrives topped with mountains of the good stuff. Black mushrooms add a distinct earthiness, while creamy feta adds some needed tanginess along with the heirloom tomatoes. Kale pesto, pea shoots and rocket keep the carb factor in check – this is a healthy dish.

We put the kitchen’s meat-cooking skills to the test with a fillet steak – and it’s 250g of juicy goodness on a plate.

Our doubts over the separately charged black pepper and mushroom sauce quickly disappear as we realise that it’s no ordinary drizzle. And the boiled potatoes are far from the norm too, being oh-so-buttery with crisped skin.

To go in our coffee we ask if they have soy milk, to which the friendly server answers, “of course, we have everything at tashas”.

And we agree, they do.
