The Masterchef judge is the mastermind behind healthy Dubai cafe Omnia Gourmet…

Nassau is the new Mediterranean restaurant now open in Jumeirah Golf Estates. The concept is the brain child of celebrity chef and Masterchef Bulgaria judge, Silvena Rowe, who also owns sugar, dairy and gluten-free cafe, Omnia Gourmet.

The new restaurant has a focus on locally sourced Mediterranean food, drawing inspiration from Chef Silvena’s European-Arabian heritage. Many of the dishes on the menu are sugar and gluten-free, offering a guilt-free dining solution to Dubai’s foodies.

Starters include black truffle labneh with seasoned baby vegetables, ottoman style wagyu beef skewers and celeriac & lentil salad with hazelnuts and za’atar. While main courses offer 48-hour slow cooked shoulder of lamb, seared sea bass fillet with tomato-chilli pickle, wagyu bolognese conchiglioni, and roasted aubergine & sautéed kale lasagne.
