Rosewood Abu Dhabi has introduced the capital’s first vegan-dedicated theme night. The hotel on Al Maryah Island now features a plant-based, meat-free feast. Held every Sunday, V for Vegan nights take place at all-day-dining restaurant Aqua.
Chef Rukman Rathnayaka, the vegan cuisine expert at Rosewood Abu Dhabi, said: “There was a clear appetite for a regular vegan event in Abu Dhabi, and we have been working hard to meet the demands of our vegan community.
“Our V for Vegan night has already been recognised by Abu Dhabi’s foodies for serving one of the most inventive plant-based menus in town. The vegan burgers are such a hit; we have now added them to our Rosewood Garden Brunch spread as well.”
Served from 7.00 p.m. until 10.30 p.m., the theme night offers the perfect setting to experience a lavish spread of vegan starters, mains and desserts priced at just AED 180. The set-up also includes an unlimited package of organic vegan hops and grapes that can be paired with the dinner for an additional AED 80.
With 40 plant-based dishes, V for Vegan night is ideal for both those that have adopted the lifestyle and those curious to discover the dietary trend.
The buffet consists of a bread corner, a salad bar, soups and dim sum for starters followed by a variety of mains, such as sweet miso eggplant, steamed silken tofu broccolini, vegan biryani and mac and cheese. The dinner also includes a sushi spread, a fritto corner, chips, burgers, a gluten-free pasta station, cold donburi, tossed soba and stir-fried dishes.
There is a wide selection of desserts to complete the meal, including chocolate-chip banana cake, treacle coconut mango sago, roasted pecan nut brownie and soya milk cherry mousse.
