Health food cafes and eateries are a big rage in Dubai right now. As a vegetarian and a health conscious foodie, I can’t be more happier. Few days ago I was invited to the launch of Dubai’s first alternate meat and vegetarian multi cuisine restaurant and bar- The Flipside Restobar.
Located in the rustic European-style dining destination Century Village, The Flipside Restobar offers a range of cuisines like Chinese, European, Indian, Thai, Mexican and Persian with a nutritious and healthy twist. The meat in all the dishes is alternate and formulated from plant based food.
The alternate meat has the taste, texture and feel of meat but is plant based and vegan. It has all the nutritional value of meat and replicates the taste of meat. Alternate meat is a healthier eco-friendly alternative.
This concept is the brain child of Mr Mahesh Kumar the owner of Flipside. Here’s what he said when I asked him about the idea behind the concept:
“My personal experience of losing 85 kgs over nine months on a protein diet made of alternate meat inspired me to offer this new food alternative in a variety of recipes suitable for Dubai’s diners.”
Open from breakfast to dinner, The Flipside Restobar is a family-friendly venue with indoor and outdoor dining space. It offers co-working space during the day and karaoke, live music in the evening. They are licensed and serve alcohol and shisha.
We started off with a glass of wine and tried many of the dishes from their convient iPad menu from starters to soup, salad, grills, mains and desserts.
Except for the cakes that we had for dessert, we liked everything else. Both the cakes we tried were too dry and lacking in flavor. We absolutely loved the vegan kebab, mushroom & beetroot burger, biryani and spaghetti with chili corn corne.
Our overall experience at The Flipside Restobar was good. Definitely worth a visit if you’re into healthy food.
