Indo Arab Fusion Menu for UAE National Day at Antique Bazaar, Four Points Sheraton

Antique Bazaar celebrates this U.A.E National Day combining Emirati and Indian flavours and dishes. Chef Hoshiyar has created a very unique menu of Indo-Arab fusion dishes.

Starting from November 21st and going on till 2nd December 2016, the fusion between the two cuisines is a great twist. The vegetarian options are in plenty and the food is delectable. I was called in to preview the menu and really liked most of the dishes!


A live Sitar player was playing soft traditional music which blended in well with the mood and food 🙂


We tried:

Tandoori Samac Laccha Aloo – This dish of baked potato with a sumac stuffing was delicious! Definitely one of the finest dishes i have had of a similar kind in an Indian restaurant. Please try this as it goes extremely well with the mint chutney and pickle served complimentary along with papads.

The chutney is a tad but spicy and i loved it! It went well with all the dishes.


Zaitoon aur Zaatar Paneer Tikka – The paneer was good and the zaatar was faint and not over powering.


Masala Falafel – This fusion was quite nice. The falafels had Indian spices in it which made it very Indianized and palatable for those who aren’t accustomed to middle eastern cuisine.


Makai Palak Sambousik – More like an arabic version of a stuffed fried samosa, the spinach was cooked well and had a mixture of corn inside.


I also tried the Mango Lassi which was very good! Thick and creamy, it was a bit to the sweet side but tasty.


For main course I tried the Foul Masala which was different kinds of beans cooked in spices and a tomato based gravy. It was very unique and more or so like chole but with different beans. It was made very well and served with Zaatar Naan and Sumak Laccha Paratha both of which i would not prefer any day over butter naan. I wish these would become a part of the on going menu.

We tried all the 3 desserts mentioned in the menu and the twist to it was different. It would definitely take getting used to an arabic twist to indian sweets.


Price: A-la-carte starting from AED 30. This is not a set menu and the best part is you can order anything from this menu along with the regular menu if you wished.
