X|NEWS: Experience the Taste of a Greek Summer at Avli by tashas
Avli by tashas announces the launch of a selection of new seasonal dishes that can be sampled for lunch or dinner; the perfect complement to the last lazy days of summer.
Each of the authentic dishes represents the playful yet elegant spirit of Greece, incorporating fresh, light ingredients, promising to transport guests to the shores of the Athenian Riviera.
As business continues to return to the DIFC, those looking for an efficient and enjoyable weekday lunch option can enjoy these summer dishes in the Lunch Set-Menu for a midday pick me up, featuring a tempting selection of starters and mains that stay true to Avli’s Greek soul.
With temperatures at their peak in the UAE, the latest additions to the menu are perfect for a laid-back lunch or relaxed evening in interiors reminiscent of the open-air courtyards of the Mediterranean. Epicurean journeys start with a selection of starters, including Beef Tartare with Koulouri Wafers; cured beef with flavours of a classic tartare and finished with kalamata olives and grated graviera, or Loukouma Bombes; a reimagined and savoury take on Loukoumades, stuffed with crab, mozzarella cheese and finished with sweet honey butter and graveria. Mains feature a sophisticated selection that offers something for every palate including a Baby Marrow and Buttered Leek Tart; topped with herb crème fraiche and served with a crisp asparagus and fennel salad and Octopus Stifado; slow-braised octopus in a green olive and tomato ragu served alongside creamy semolina.
For a sweet and refreshing end to their meal, guests can delight in the Portokalopita; a zesty orange and filo tart served with vanilla ice cream and an orange and vanilla syrup, or devour the Loukoumades; topped with hazelnut dust, honey and cinnamon sugar.
Avli also welcomes guests back to DIFC with new delivery or pick-up options for those not able to leave their desks. For just AED 68, diners can enjoy a choice of traditionally grilled chicken or beef Souvlaki Skewers, served with chips, Greek salad, tzatziki and a homemade cherry soda, ordered directly from the restaurant, or through Deliveroo or RadYes.
In the adjoining Galaxy Bar, the venue transforms into a private dining room for guests to spend their summer nights in an exclusive and seductive journey under the stars. With world-class cocktails and a vibrant soundscape to match, guests can indulge in a personalized showcase of the authentic Avli menu.
