It’s no debate that Dubai is full of restaurants offering every cuisine under the sun.
However I still find that it can be a challenge to find restaurants that offer truly healthy options let alone a restaurant that offers all of its items with health in mind.
The ever rotating selection at Sophie’s on The Palm does just that.
A friend and I decided to stop into Sophie’s this past weekend for lunch.
We were greeted by friendly staff who explained the menu to us – many of the items are put on display behind the shops glass case. The menu also offers an array of freshly made juices and smoothies (all with dairy free options which I was totally loving).
We took a look over the large selections of mains and salads behind the display glass before making our decisions and taking our seats at one of the wooden tables.
I went for the option of a fresh salmon fillet with a mix of two side salads; a broccoli salad with a light tangy sauce and a mix of avocado, tomato and mozzarella.
Along side my lunch I decided to have one of Sophie’s power packed smoothies.
The Viva Spirulina smoothie is a must – a healthy dairy free choice stuffed with good for you energy boosting ingredients including spinach, mixed berries, spirulina, cocoa powder, almond butter, coconut oil, honey and almond milk.
Fun fact – Spirulina per tablespoon has a full 7 g of protein!
With our lunches finished (which left us completely than satisfied and full) we still couldn’t resist the temptation of something sweet to end the afternoon.
That being said it is hard to pass up the beautiful pastries that Sophie’s has on offer – especially the gluten free and dairy free dessert options.
We decided to celebrate the fall season by sampling a slice of the pumpkin chocolate chip cake washed down with a soy milk cappuccino. A delightful combination which I highly recommend.
Overall a wonderfully tasty healthy experience.
If you’re on The Palm in look of a healthy relaxed meal definitely try out Sophie’s (oh, and if you want something a little bit naughty try their carrot cake – it’s amazing).
