Traditional food in a cozy setting.

Dubai is a melting pot of different cultures and what we love about being here is that we can find food from all around the world. We were recently invited to Eshak, Dubai’s Uzbek and Middle Eastern fusion restaurant, that has recently launched a new menu featuring tasty new dishes that masterfully blend flavours from Uzbekistan, Georgia and the Middle East.

We began with the Uzbek Shurpa Soup, made with a rich beef broth and vegetables, the perfect soul-warming dish that we thoroughly enjoyed.

In the salads, we were very curious about the Baklajan Roll, that pairs fried eggplants with tomatoes, cream cheese and pesto. An interesting mix of ingredients, we made a mental note to try our hand at making it in our own kitchen.

There is an entire section dedicated to dumplings. Our order of the Georgian specialty, known as Khinkali filled with lamb was an absolute delight. Pillowy balls of dough filled with delicately flavored meat and served with a dip-you can’t really go wrong with this dish.

Another dish that tempted us was the Megrel Khachapuri-this piping hot, oven baked puff pastry was filled with rich sulguni cheese. We would return to Eshak just to order this hearty and filling bread on its own.

If you love rice as much as we do, then ask about their daily special. We were lucky to be there on the day of the lamb pilaf. The rice was perfectly cooked while the meat was tender and moist-we took the leftovers home and enjoyed them the following morning.

Inspired by the rich flavours of the Silk Route, Eshak serves traditional cuisine with innovative techniques. Located in City Walk, the restaurant combines a cosy, home-like touch, with delicious cuisine, generous portions and friendly service.

Eshak is located in City Walk.
