Feeling a little v-curious?

Whether you practice a vegan lifestyle, or simply want to explore an animal product-free diet, you’ll want to head down to the Dubai Herbal & Treatment Centre on Oud Metha Road this Saturday, August 4 for an evening of entirely plant-based food, an enlightening talk and gorgeous sunset views. Oh, and the chance to win some great prizes, too.

Hosted by community group Dubai Vegan Days, this one-off event is a chance for like-minded folks to mingle and sample the Eat Well restaurant’s new summer menu.

Dhs99 will get you a choice of starters from a buffet, a main course and a dessert. And the choices sound delicious…

Starters include gazpacho shooters, Vietnamese spring rolls, pulled barbecue jackfruit sliders, mini rice kulchas and corn salsa wraps and avocado cream. The main course is a vegan primavera lasagne with baked plantain, black beans and coconut. While dessert is simply listed as being “vegan texture”. Mysterious.

At 5.30pm there will be a short talk from one of the centre’s nutritionists on how to enjoy a balanced diet as a vegan, with a focus on gut health and the chance to ask questions. A little learning with your meal never hurt.

And finally, all attendees will be entered into a prize draw to win a package for two valued at over Dhs1,000 that includes a future meal at the Eat Well restaurant and two 50-minute massages at the Feel Well retreat.

So, why not join the ranks of other vegans like Beyonce, Albert Einstein and Woody Harrelson and head down to see what all the fuss is about yourself?

Eat Well Restaurant, Dubai Herbal & Treatment Centre, Oud Metha Road, 5pm to 9pm, Sat August 4, Dhs99 for three-course meal, Dh45 for children. Tel: (054) 476 6326. facebook.com/dxbvegandays
