The vibrant, pulsating hotspot in the heart of Dubai, Bagatelle has created a meat-free menu that is sure to delight even the most discerning of palates. Whether you are a life-long vegan or a part-time plant-based lover, veganism is a lifestyle choice that has gained huge momentum in the region. Vegan foodies can rejoice, Bagatelle’s head Chef Ricardo Goncalves has created an utterly delicious vegan menu, showcasing some of the best plant-based dining in Dubai.
Start with salads for a light introduction to culinary proceedings. The salad de figues, showcases sliced black figs tossed with frisse lettuce, caramelised walnuts, vegan feta and a lemon thyme oil, while the Salade Bagatelle is delightfully simple medley of butter-leaf, fine herbs and house vinaigrette. For those moments when a salad just won’t cut it, try the divinely rich truffle pizza – Pizza a la Truffe Noire or the classic vegan Pizza Margherita, both so delicious you won’t believe that they are actually vegan.
When it comes to the main courses, diners will be treated to robust dishes that marry exceptional flavours and Bagatelle’s trademark culinary style. Céleri-rave Rôti, is a rich roasted celeriac steak, that is perfectly complimented with hazlenut and burnt apple and finished with a truffle dressing. Try the wonderfully warming Risotto Tompinambour – this silky-smooth risotto is accompanied by a divine Jerusalem artichoke puree and bedecked with Jerusalem artichoke crisps and a sherry vinegar caramel.
Vegan dessert lovers can enjoy a taste of the Caribbean with the Ananas Caramelisé –caramelised pineapple is perfectly paired with a pina colada sorbet for a delicious finale to dinner. Alternatively, diners can cleanse the palate with the chef’s selection of sorbets.
