When we’re in Dubai we like to try new places that are not being infested by Kuwaitis (you should see the waiting line on the cheesecake factory). Our friend ItsAllG000d told us about this place in Dubai and we thought we give it a try. The Farm is a restaurant with a concept of a healthy living away from the city. They made a good job in when it came to that statement.
The place is surrounded with greenery. A sudden change while you are driving to it. Located on Emirates road, you enter Al-Barari settlement a 180 degrees change happens. With paved roads, trees and flowers around you till you reach The Farm. Once inside, the decoration is just relaxing with small ponds around the place.
Once we were seated, we were given an iPad with their application running. Depending on what time you are there, different meals are set. We were there for lunch so we started flicking through their lunch menu. We got to say that they have some good dishes that will keep you wondering.
While we were doing that, they offered us a mini bruschetta and complementary vegetable chips. (it’s chips without the potatoes), we loved it. We ended up ordering the following:
- Lemongrass Chicken skewers
- Ponto Shrimps
- Shrimp soup
- Turkey Meatball Pasta
- Halloum Salad
- Baked cheesecake
- Coconut Cupcake
We enjoyed every dish we had. From the appetizers ending with that great cheesecake (A MUST). Once done, we went to the mini grocery store to buy some of that vegetable chips and other food products we found interesting. We really thought that this place will be expensive like other fine dining places around Dubai. However, the food + the groceries we paid 395 AED (30 KD).
This place is around 30 minutes away from Dubai Marina in Al-Barari settlement on Emirates road. Map:
If you are going to Dubai anytime soon then this place must be in your “visit” list. However, make sure you call for reservations. We did a mistake by going without reservation but thanks to their management they provided us with a table. Although there are inside seating, if you are passing by in winter then you have to be outside.
