Moreish, Dubai

by Jannat & Pawan Manghnani on January 11th, 2017


Moreish, a Greek word, translating into so pleasant to eat that one wants more which is exactly what we felt. A brand new addition to Dubai's dining scene which goes a step further in terms of quality and taste of its food.


Quirky is definitely one word I would choose to describe this place. Set in the by-lanes of Oud Mehta, it is a newly opened restaurant waiting to be discovered. Cafe style almost, there is an outdoor and indoor seating available. They have cute tamps replicating knobs, and their posters are just adorable. A very comfy and cosy place. Designed by the owner Gulshan Narang himself, Moreish gives a refreshingly inviting feel even before entering the place.


Moreish means something so pleasant to eat, that one wants more! This certainly was the case at our intimate dinner at their restaurant last night. We were so warmly welcomed by the staff and the managers, that it almost felt like a home affair. The tables there have an inbuilt tic-tac-toe, with moreish buttons to play with. Kept us busy while we waited for our food, which was about 10 quick minutes, after which these burst of dishes arrived and all of them tasted SO good, we just sat and enjoyed our the feast laid before us for the next hour! 


We started off with some beverages, that included Evolution, which was a unique mix of lychee and lemongrass. Super refreshing.
​The Strawberry Breeze came in next, which included strawberry, mint, and lime. The taste just popped and I finished the whole drink in no time.
​And lastly The Sunset, which was a combination of orange and peach. All of the drinks were super refreshing, just a tad bit over-sweet. But the servers were kind enough to rectify that give us another one! 


The food just blew our minds off. One really needs to try it to believe it.
Moreish Shawarma Nachos
were everything and more. Crisp and hot tortilla chips, topped with flavored chicken bits, guacamole, and sour cream was the best appetizer we could have asked for! 
All Star Mushroom Soup
came with truffle oil sprinkled on top. So worth the price. The star of the dish is also the fancy bowl it comes in! The slice of garlic bread served with it was just heavenly! 
Lemongrass Cottage Cheese Skewer
was basically chunks of very soft cottage cheese marinated in a pesto lemongrass mix and topped with some green chutney. It was a unique way to eat paneer for sure, and the vegetarians with us loved it. It was also made with zero spice on our request, so much appreciated. 
Adobo Chicken
is a Filipino dish that we thought we should try. So it was basically chicken wings tossed in this adobo gravy which was obviously really mild. Have had adobo cicken multiple times in Philippines and for an Indian chef, this was replicated quite well. 
FILO Prawns
were something like prawn spring rolls but crispier on the outside, And the shrimp filling was super soft oozing flavor on the inside. The portion was huge as an appetizer so it's completely shareable. We just wished the filo pastry was rolled a tad bit thinner but now this us nitpicking an otherwise near perfect appetizer. 
Vegetarian Quesadilla
was devoured by the only vegetarian on our table and he said he loved it. It had a good balance of cheese to veg to tortilla ratio and their sour cream was really good! He claims it to be one of the best quesadillas in town! 
Mexican Fajita Wrap
is a chicken wrap with Mexican seasoning and peppers. It was quite yum, but the star of the dish was the portion of fries that came with it. These fries were tossed in some kind of Indian masala that made them delicious. The side slaw was pretty amazing as well. 
Slow Roasted Chicken
was part of our mains. We had ours without the brown rice, so it was two pieced of perfectly cooked chicken, served with the jus on the side (extremely flavorful), mashed potatoes and grilled vegetables. The chicken was almost falling off the bone so it made our job quite easy and the mash was simply amazing. A must have for sure!  


Chocolate Spa Dessert
was such a looker! A brownie topped with ice cream served on a sizzling plate have been done before several times, but this one had a surprise addition, which was an urn filled with chocolate sauce that they pour on the table which released the smoky effect from the sizzling place! It was also accompanied by sides like marshmallows and chocolate stones that made it super interesting! 
Chocolate Lotus Mousse
was the star of the night! It was so rich and creamy, that none of us could put our forks down for a second. There was a subtle hint of the Lotus flavor, which is exactly how we like it. Really exceptional, and we think we might just go back for the dessert!
