7 Dubai mushroom dishes that aren’t boring



Have you noticed that restaurants are always quick to offer mushroom dishes to their vegetarian customers? Or, if it’s a more high-end place, something with truffles? It may not seem like the most creative option, but don’t discount this fungi food. We’ve eaten our way through the city’s countless restaurants to find the dishes that are definitely worth a second look.

Baked Portobello Mushrooms – Ultra Brasserie
What: Ultra Brasserie has a simple concept: healthy, organic, delicious food. And they deliver on that with some great veggie options. Our favorite is the baked Portobello mushroom stack, which comes with sun-dried tomatoes, feta and rocket leaves and is bursting with fresh, tangy flavor.

Mushroom Skewers – Zuma
There’s a lot to love at Zuma, with several vegetarian dishes, including a shiitake mushroom skewers. It’s a sharing concept, so order plenty and bring some friends … or a big appetite! It’s a big, bold tasty dish and there’s even a truffle option if they’re in season.

Mushroom Risotto – La Serre
La Serre is split into a traditional Parisian boulangerie on the ground floor, and a charming bistro on the first floor. One of the highlights in the bistro is the mushroom risotto, which is rich and creamy but still has an al dente texture to the rice and tons of rich mushroom flavour.

Mushroom Risotto – Solo Vinobar and Bistronomia
This sleek bistro and wine bar in Raffles Hotel has a small scattering of vegetarian dishes, and of course, a mushroom risotto. It’s a great dish, and the creaminess of the risotto is enhanced by a Parmesan fondue, which adds another layer of salty flavor.
