Want to get a taste of Scandinavian cuisine? Head to the Nordic Kitchen pop-up at Kizmet Dubai
What exactly does Nordic food consist of? If you're a foodie and haven't been able to get up to Scandinavia for a visit yet, we recommend heading to Downtown Dubai's Kizmet for a little taste.
Part of a dinner series, aptly named The Opposite Kitchen, ‘The Nordic Feast’ will run from March 5th – 9th and will enable guests to experience authentic Scandinavian cuisine without ever having to leave Dubai.
Andre Gerschel, owner of the popular downtown Dubai spot, Kizmet, has partnered with Enayat Safi, a Copenhagen based food entrepreneur originally from Afghanistan, and renowned Danish Chef, William Milsted to bring The Opposite Kitchen to Dubai.
The trio first launched this dinner series last June during Ramadan in Copenhagen, in a bid to bring people together through a common connector, food, with the goal of showcasing the cultural similarities of geographically opposite foods.
Nordic food has never been represented in Dubai and the five-day pop-up event at Kizmet is the best way to get a taste.
The chefs all have iron-clad backgrounds, having previously worked at Noma, which is one of the best restaurants in the world.
The menu offers 15 dishes and Arabic flavours will be part of the menu with Krebbinet, a minced veal dish with pickled, crispy & creamy potatoes. Guests can get a taste of Danish fare such as: Sea Bass Smørrebrød, local pan-fried sea bass a top rye bread, finished off with remoulade, fennel and juicy capers, Smoked Mackerel Salad with raw and grilled fennel, daikon, apple, rye crackers and finished off with a dill vinaigrette and a Nordic Beef Tartare with mustard mushrooms, barley, nutmeg and garlic spinach.
The Nordic Feast will be taking over Kizmet’s regular A La Carte menu (the normal Kizmet breakfast menu will still be available throughout this pop-up for weekends only). Prices start at AED 35 and reservations are required.
