Sesame Restaurant, which has a focus on health-conscious, clean and wholesome food, has opened its doors in Dubai.
The homegrown concept has been created by founding partners Neha Jamani and Irina Sharma who worked with food development consultant, chef Gohei Kishi, to devise the menu.
Jamani, who studied to become a holistic chef at the Bauman College of Holistic Nutrition & Culinary Arts in Berkeley, California, said: “Sesame is a cozy, health-conscious restaurant committed to sharing clean, delicious, wholesome and living foods that nourish the body.
“Here, we offer dishes that not only focus on flavor and taste, but also share valuable insights on how they can have therapeutic applications for illness prevention, recovery and optimal health. There is no other restaurant that is as focused on the whole healthy eating concept as at Sesame.”
Chef Kishi’s previous experience includes working as head of Asian concepts for Gordon Ramsay Group and group executive chef of Ramusake in Dubai.
The ‘world food’ menu will not follow any specific cuisine but will use familiar ingredients in new ways, with bright flavours, homemade spices and sauces and different textures.
Sharma added: “What makes Sesame distinctive from the diverse range of restaurants already operating in Dubai is its plant forward menu. It embraces honesty and transparency about the food which we create right from scratch.
“This goodness is about the way we operate, the infectious enthusiasm of our team who are readily on hand to walk you through the menu and share the spirit behind Sesame. We hope to become a fixture in the community for years to come where goodness is passionately promoted through food.”
Sesame Restaurant is open from 7.30am – 10pm and is located on Level 1, Sunset Mall, Jumeirah Beach Road, Jumeirah 3.
