Seven top chefs at Le Gourmet at Galeries Lafayette are the architects behind the innovations
Adding a new and exciting dimension to Dubai’s enviable reputation for casual dining quality and variety is the new menu at Le Gourmet in Galeries Lafayette.
Crafted by seven outstanding chefs, it is especially designed for the discerning palate and varied but subtle in its allure. Every dish on the menu is made with great attention to detail and the assurance that only the best ingredients are used to create a culinary journey around the world.
The live kitchens of Le Gourmet have already established their credentials for making cuisine a memorable experience. Whether it is a hearty breakfast at Izu bakery or a relaxed brunch at Izu Brasserie, exotic Oriental indulgence at WokTales and the Sushi Bar, every visit is unique for flavour, texture, and the sheer mastery of the team of chefs who have taken taste to a whole new level. And don’t miss out on Tandoonari, which comes highly recommended for homestyle Indian food.
The refreshed menu is certain to attract even more loyalty with great care taken to add a touch of charm and mystery to some of the new options.
Don’t miss the Asian bao platter at WokTales with its hoisin glazed chicken, dynamite prawns, fried cauliflower or elect to go for the fiery Thai red curries. The Teriyaki glazed salmon with soba noodles salad is a great lunch or dinner option.
Fusion gets a boost with a playful South Asian version of the Mexican taco at Tandoonari, available in three flavours—shrimp, chicken, or vegetable. And don’t miss out on the Tandoori broccoli marinated in spiced ginger and served with a garlic saffron yogurt, a perfectly balanced starter or side.
Responding to the additional new fare, Le Gourmet Head of F&B, Mario Faria said it has always been the aim of the restaurant to ensure that providing good food is not just a label but a destination. “We pride ourselves on innovation while maintaining uncompromising standards when it comes to sourcing the best and most authentic ingredients. At Le Gourmet we do not accept alternatives to originals and that is why every dish on the menu is a testament to perfection.”
All produce is locally sourced to ensure freshness and flavour and all ingredients are made from scratch from the freshly baked breads and buns to the sauces and marinades.
Chef Sven Desales explains how the menu celebrates the old and the new. Traditional dishes handed down over the ages are kept true to their history but studied experimentation to produce bespoke dishes has allowed Le Gourmet’s chefs to add a whole new spectrum to classic cooking.
“The palate of our diners has evolved and the discovery of new edibles, fragrances, sauces and fillings in this modern age and the blending and fusion of various global foods provides a heightened excitement and allows for more experimentation. For us, it is a fun challenge to give every guest the consummate course, be it an appetizer, the entrée, or the dessert.”
From the delectable cuisine to the artisanal food market and the enjoyable crowd-friendly atmosphere of our dining lounge, Le Gourmet remains a little oasis in the heart of Dubai Mall providing an unparalleled gastronomic experience.
