New restaurant Sesame set to captivate Dubai with exciting new “world food”
Sesame Restaurant brings a refreshing change to Dubai’s culinary scene – healthy eating!
“Sesame is a new crop of plant-forward food, [those who advocate heirloom and indigenous varieties of produce, grains, and other plant-based foods] with combined cooking techniques, style and flavors from around the globe. We created Sesame fueled by determination to share nourishing food,“ said founding partners Neha Jamani and Irina Sharma.
Neha, who studied to become a holistic chef at Bauman College of Holistic Nutrition & Culinary Arts in Berkeley, California, says Sesame is a cosy, health-conscious restaurant committed to sharing clean, delicious, wholesome and living foods that nourish the body.
“Here, we offer dishes that not only focus on flavour and taste, but also share valuable insights on how they can have therapeutic applications for illness prevention, recovery and optimal health. There is no other restaurant [in Dubai] that is as focused on the whole healthy eating concept as at Sesame.”
Advocate of a healthy longevity lifestyle, Irina, says that what distinguishes Sesame from other restaurants in Dubai is its plant-forward menu.
“It embraces honesty and transparency about the food which we create right from scratch. This goodness is about the way we operate, the infectious enthusiasm of our team, which is on hand to walk you through the menu and share the spirit behind Sesame. We hope to become a fixture in the community for years to come, where goodness is passionately promoted through food.”
To bring Sesame to life, Neha and Irina tapped into the knowledge and skills of Chef Gohei Kishi, a food development consultant best known for his unconventional cooking methods and creativity in the kitchen. Chef Gohei brings his skills from his global experience working in Michelin Star restaurant Kappou Nakajima, Head of Asian Concept for Gordan Ramsay Group and Group Executive Chef for Ramasaki.
For Chef Kishi, collaborating with Jamani and Sharma on Sesame Restaurant is his first global project as a consulting chef. He said, “I am very pleased to involve myself in this independent homegrown concept. I can see that Sesame has something fresh to offer and excited to work with dishes that creatively combine technique, style and flavours from around the world in a way that supports nourishment. It will be exciting what new dishes we can create giving our guests unique experiences, [paying heed to their] preferences and dietary needs.”
Sesame promises food made from scratch. The menu does not follow any specific cuisine, but rather uses familiar ingredients in fresh new ways. “The all-day nourishing menu is all about bright flavours, spices and homemade sauces with many different textures. It combines our love of buying local whenever possible, liberal use of vegetables and super foods, and creating food that is simply better for you.”
