Creative and fusion concepts are gaining popularity in UAE and across the globe for their innovativeness. I personally love these kinds of concepts as they bring something new to the table. Last evening I visited one such concept called Micro.
Located on the Second Floor of the glamorous Fashion Avenue in The Dubai Mall, Micro offers international modern cuisine with an Asian twist. It is a result of a collaboration between Ms. Rasha Al Danhani a successful Emirati entrepreneur and owner of PappaRoti and Chef Khaled Al Saadi, one of the most celebrated Emirati chefs and youth icon in the UAE.
The modern Asian-inspired interiors of the venue looks elegant, sleek and minimalistic. It has a look and feel of a boutique dining cafe/restaurant with attentive and flawless service.
Micro visualizes itself as a brand of eclectic and contemporary flavors. You can expect a range of small-sized portions. Their menu is simple and concise, so it is easy to order. As it was a preview, we had a special menu.
We started off with three of their refreshing mocktails – Singapore Sunrise, Berries Hibiscus and Spicy Lime Elixir. If you’re not in a mood for mocktails, you can always order fresh juices or soft drinks.
Being a vegetarian, I would like to see a bit more veggie options in their menu. The Micro Salad was light and delicious. We loved the addition of candied nuts in the salad. The Micro Fries were crisp and oh-so-addictive.
Next we had Tofu & Asparagus. The grilled tofu and asparagus sautéed in spinach and topped with gochujang sauce was bursting with exquisite flavors. Micro’s tofu & asparagus is a must-try.
The Spiced Spinach and Aubergine Dumpling was delightful and went perfectly well with their homemade aioli oil. Another standout dish was their signature smoked Laksa Curry served with lemongrass jasmine rice. It was comfort in a bowl.
We had Snickers and Dulce Tart & Oolong Tea Ice Cream for dessert. The desserts we tried were excellent and my suggestion to anyone visiting Micro is to try them both. Oh well, you can thank me later! Ended the meal with a cup of freshly brewed Flat White Coffee.
Our culinary experience at Micro was amazing. Would I be going back again? Absolutely!
