Prax's Jumeirah

by Pawan Manghnani on April 12th, 2016

About

Bright lights, big city, towering skyscrapers, whooshing cars, enticing neon signs, the sizzling of a wok in a nearby night food market - these are the sights and sounds of the vibrant city of Shanghai that are brought to life at Prax's.

The flavors so big and bold, built around the concept of customization. The menu allows customers to put together the flavors that appeal to them the most and create their own unique combinations. No-fuss, fresh ingredients are tossed up in a wok, and bound together with a range of delicious sauces and condiments, all served fast and tasty!

Review

Prax's is a newly opened Chinese take out joint on Jumeirah 1. It is hard to miss thanks to its very OTT neon signboard, and also because it falls between a stretch of other restaurants that however serve completely different cuisines. 


We were invited by one of the partners Mr. Deepak Asnani, and since the wifey is a huge fan of Oriental cuisine  we decided to give it a go! Upon reaching there we were a bit anxious as to how we would accommodate ourselves as the tables seemed to be full and the only seating available was the bar style one facing the Jumeirah road and invariably overlooking at all the take-way bags being handed out to the customers. But luckily we were informed that one of the tables was getting empty soon, so that was a sigh of relief and we started flipping through the menu. 


In the meanwhile, one of the other partners, Mr. Dhiraj accompanied us and was very enthusiastically telling us about how Prax’s whose name is inspired by actually one of 3 co-owners Prakarti, came to life and it was sweet to know that it was the pure fascination of eating out of take-out boxes that we’ve seen in most of our movies and sitcoms. They wanted to bring the "box concept" here and they did; but not only that- we were informed that Prax’s is open till the wee hours of the night (3:00am), and that one of the main reasons for that was to give the mortals of Dubai a choice that is not Lebanese when they crave food at the end of a party night! Long Live Praxs' !!


All the aromas floating in the air and the fact that you could see the chefs whipping up a meal because of their open kitchen concept was making us really hungry! So we got down to business & without further ado ordered our food.

​The Food

#Chicken Wanton Soup:
Generous portion with extremely tasty dumplings, we almost burnt our tongue because we couldn’t resist eating it even while it was hot.
​#Chicken Sui Mai:
 succulent balls of perfectly cooked chicken with a thin skin was essentially what sums this entree. It was served with an amazing spicy sauce that we indulged and demolished.
​#Mains:
Wife and me both decided to go “freestyle” as just having the luxury to custom make your meal forfeits everything! 

#Wife's box: Chicken Egg Noodles with Child Basil:
​Chicken Egg Noodles with Child Basil and a few extras here and there. She seemed to love it and completely and slurpingly devoured her entire box. It was cooked well and what she raved about was the fact that unlike other Chinese places this food didn’t reek of oil or excessive burnt garlic.
​#My box: Chicken Green Curry with Jasmine Rice:
​Chicken Green Curry with Jasmine Rice and a few veggies here and there. I literally fell in love with it and even mentioned as to this being one of the best green Thai curries ever eaten. It was light and flavors came through beautifully without it having to be empowering and the portion size was perfect for a big foodie like me. 

The Desserts

Mr. Dhiraj insisted that we try the two desserts on their menu, and with the history of notoriously good tasting food we’ve had today we couldn’t resist. He informed us that the desserts are not made in-house but ordered though some five star with whom they have a tie-up. Now, that built our anticipation even more.  

#Coconut and Ginger Pannacotta
YUM. A pannacotta isn’t very easy to make but this one was just right and not too gelatinous like how it is commercially sold. It also had a very faint coconut flavour which worked well with the candied ginger bits it was served with. Unusual but definitely worth the try. 
​#Date and Caramel Pudding
YUM YUM! My favorite out of the two for the simple reason that it had layers of caramel and chocolate topped with some whipped cream dollops and a few pieces of a date cake. Sinful.


There is nothing not to like about this place, from its cute interiors to super colorful menu and to amazing servers and cooks providing us such amazing food! Everyone must experience the goodness that is Prax's.
