Sesame Restaurant opens in Dubai

August 14, 2017 | By RetailME Bureau

The newest addition to the list of health conscious concepts in Dubai is Sesame Restaurant, located at Level 1, Sunset Mall on Jumeirah Beach Road.

“Sesame is a new crop of plant forward food, with combined cooking techniques, style and flavours from around the globe – we created Sesame ground up fuelled by determination to share nourishing food,” says founding partners Neha Jamani and Irina Sharma.

Sesame promises a fare made from scratch, as Jamani and Sharma say the menu will not follow any specific cuisine, but rather use familiar ingredients in fresh new ways. “The all-day nourishing menu is all about bright flavours, homemade spices & sauces with many different textures. It combines our love of buying local whenever possible, liberal use of vegetables and super foods and continuing to create better food,” they add.

Jamani, who studied to become a Holistic Chef at the Bauman College of Holistic Nutrition & Culinary Arts in Berkeley, California; says Sesame is a cozy, health-conscious restaurant committed to sharing clean, delicious, wholesome and living foods that nourish the body. Sesame not only focuses on flavour and taste, but also shares valuable insights on how they can have therapeutic applications for illness prevention, recovery and optimal health.

A renowned communications practitioner, educator and advocate of healthy longevity lifestyle, Sharma says what makes Sesame distinctive from the diverse range of restaurants already operating in Dubai is its plant forward menu. It embraces honesty and transparency about the food created right from scratch.

To bring Sesame to life, the co-founders tapped into food development consultant Chef Gohei Kishi, who is 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.
