Café Bateel, home of gourmet Mediterranean cuisine, announces the launch of a fresh new seasonal menu for the upcoming summer months. Diners can delight in light and healthy options from soups and salads to mains and desserts, with delicious offerings available for vegans and the health conscious. The new menu is now available in all cafés across the UAE.

The innovative and enticing new menu has been carefully curated by Bateel’s award-winning executive chef Jean Luc Vila, offering a culinary celebration of the finest seasonal ingredients and flavours taking influence from Mediterranean cuisine.  Café Bateel’s chefs have incorporated new and alternative elements which offer a fresh depth of taste and flavour including the new superfood Moringa. A plant native to India, is now grown along the Mediterranean coast where it is dubbed the ‘Miracle Tree’. Moringa which has been linked to having positive health benefits can be utilised in many aspects of cooking and is featured by Café Bateel in a new hearty vegan Moringa Vegetable soup.

With multiple options for vegetarians and vegans, the menu offers a new vibrancy to Café Bateel’s cuisine and reinforces its Mediterranean credentials. Highlights include the Healthy Green Bowl - A healthy vegan bowl with quinoa, grains, spinach, kale, green peas, asparagus, avocado, broccoli, green tomatoes, French beans, mixed seeds and zingy lemon dressing and the Tiger Prawn Risotto - Jumbo tiger prawns on a bed of Venere black rice renowned for its health benefits and trumpet mushrooms with Parmesan Reggiano cheese. Guests looking for a sweet treat can delight in a choice of four seasonal desserts including Pomelos Cheesecake - a crispy biscuit base topped with cream cheese, grapefruit, yuzu, strawberry purée and cream cheese mousse or the irresistible Apricot and Milk Chocolate Cake with crunchy almond biscuit and layers of apricot and yuzu compote, topped with milk chocolate cream.

To beat the summer heat, the menu showcases refreshing chilled beverages including the Peach Delight - A tasty blend of peach with orange, apple and strawberry, providing the quintessential taste of summer for all of the family to enjoy.
