21 Grams is the ideal haven for wholesome, homely food, and winter catch-ups, as FACT finds out…
With the launch of a brand-new menu and a savoury weekend roast, 21 Grams retains its character and title for being the place to taste the essence of the mountains, valleys and coasts of the Balkan region. There aren’t many places in Dubai that offer dining with an honest and non-gimmicky approach, yet 21 Grams does this in the most respectful, creative and delicious way. Perfectly situated between city and sea, the vibrant little bistro seating a cosy 25, near Umm Suqeim Park, is a snug urban space, bright and uncluttered, where the simple, good things in life are celebrated every day.
True Balkan Bedouin, Head Chef Uros, presents newly crafted dishes into the brand-spanking menu inclusive of hearty breakfast fare such as the Balkan Breakfast with baked eggs in tomato and pepper relish with beef sausages and crumbled feta cheese, delectable Pljeskavica, a Wagyu beef patty stuffed with bacon and cheese with spicy Moravian salad and soft flatbread, and mouth-watering Balkan desserts like Tufahija. Every weekend, 21 Grams will serve up a Weekend Roast with roast meat options, potatoes, heirloom carrots and garlic, all for a snazzy at AED98 and a Weekend Roast inclusive of a dessert for a cool AED120.
The first of its kind in the UAE, 21 GRAMS is here to dish up wholesome soul food straight from the Balkans. And there’s nothing boring about it. Try the Spanakopita Salad or the Oven-baked Sea Bass for flavours you’ve never tasted before. They’re dishes ideal for winter, as is the Istrian Fusi (hand rolled pasta with wild mushroom mix and aged cheese) and the Slow-cooked Lamb Shank. Think hearty and homely! Desserts are a delight too. Go for the Krem Pita, a beautiful dish of crispy phyllo pastry with soft cheese creme and forest fruit sauce – out of this world.
They hand-make every dish and pastry from family recipes, seasonal ingredients and source from local farmers to bring you authentic accents of the Balkan region, all carefully wrapped up with genuine and generous warmth and spirit. 21 Grams is more than an eatery, it’s a vibrant bistro where simplicity reigns supreme. The venue is open from 7am to 11.30pm
