Dubai’s Kizmet restaurant launches Nordic pop-up



We’d be exaggerating if we said Nordic food was well represented in Dubai, despite Scandinavian cuisine capturing the food world by storm over the past five years.

But things are about to change, and very quickly.

The Opposite Kitchen, ‘The Nordic Feast’ will be serving up authentic Scandinavian cuisine and you won’t even have to leave Dubai.

The Nordic Feast is a five-day pop-up event at popular downtown Dubai spot Kizmet that is dedicated to Nordic food, the Nordic kitchen and young chefs from Denmark sharing the food they grew up with.

The menu offers 15 unique dishes that bring together the flavours of Scandinavia, whilst adding nuances of the Middle East.


Arabic flavours will still be a part of the menu with krebbinet, a minced veal dish with pickled, crispy and creamy potatoes.

But Nordic classics are at the forefront for this special edition from March 5-9.

Guests can get a taste of Danish fare such as sea bass smørrebrød, featuring local pan-fried sea bass a top rye bread, finished off with remoulade, fennel and juicy capers, plus a smoked mackerel salad with raw and grilled fennel, daikon, apple, rye crackers and finished off with a dill vinaigrette, and a Nordic beef tartare with mustard mushrooms, barley, nutmeg and garlic spinach.

And of course, there will be dessert to follow…

Indulge in a Nordic strawberry cake or the buttermilk koldskål, a kammerjunker tuile with lemon sorbet, orange buttermilk and tarragon oil.

The restaurant is promising you’ll lick your lips, so why not put their words to the test.

When: Tuesday March 5 to Saturday 9, lunch and dinner
Where: Kizmet, Dubai Opera, Downtown Dubai
Price: Prices start at AED35 and reservations are required
