ZOR, located at The Pointe, Palm Jumeirah will celebrate its grand opening weekend on December 17-18 with a live performance by Uzbek superstar Sevara Nazarkhan.
ZOR has been designed with a vision to showcase authentic Uzbek culture and cuisine to the Middle East. And so, the concept offers guests a first-hand glimpse into the true spirit of Uzbekistan, via an immersive culinary journey.
Seen as a melting pot of flavours and spices and with a rich and unique history, Uzbekistan’s heritage is one that is embedded with numerous influences from neighbouring nations and as a result, many Uzbek recipes have centuries-old histories and are prepared with various rituals that elevate the dining experience to all-new heights.
The carefully curated menu at ZOR combines age-old Uzbek recipes together with modern technology and the best of ingredients sourced directly from multiple provinces within Uzbekistan. Highlights from the menu include Chuchvara and Shurpa, traditional Uzbek beef and lamb soups cooked with an array of vegetables and served with a side of sour cream and lamb chops.
A must-try is ZOR’s Osh, a dish of tenderly braised lamb meat, garlic and burned onions all cooked with Lazar rice and served with an achichuk salad. ZOR also offers guests an array of meat skewers, served straight from the grill including Shashlik, Koftas and cooked Lamb Chops.
Set over two floors and with an outside terrace overlooking the record-breaking fountains, ZOR offers guests the historic charm of Uzbekistan.
