Catering to new tastes and more adventurous palates, fine-dining restaurant Wakame has unveiled an expanded menu featuring innovative creations like Wakame ceviche or tamarind-baked seabass.

"The changes in our menu have been planned for several months now," explains Alawi Al Braik, owner of Wakame Restaurant, who has been working closely with executive chef Bajador to create and implement some of the new dishes.

"We wanted to make sure that our menus continue to inspire and satisfy our fine-diners, while still offering something for everyone. Customers can expect everything they’ve come to love about Wakame, with a few culinary surprises!"

Wakame ceviche is a delicate flavour combination of tuna, salmon, hamachi, citrus soy and tapioca crackers, while the tamarind-baked seabass is served on a bed of pomelo salad. The restaurant’s vegan menu has a new sweet potato and beetroot maki, a mushroom bao, and a dedicated dessert section that includes mochi ice-cream wrapped in rice paper pastry and a decadent raspberry chocolate cake.

For those with a sweet tooth, Wakame’s regular dessert menu has new tempting entries like molten cake served with dolce sauce and vanilla ice cream, and honey cake served with cream and honey crumble. For those who prefer the restaurant’s traditional offerings, Wakame will continue to serve signature favourites like wagyu truffle dim sum and crispy lobster bao.

"It’s our hope that loyal Wakame customers will continue to enjoy all their menu favourites, while perhaps making new ones," says Al Braik. "For new customers, we hope the variety we offer will keep them coming back for more."

Located in the Sofitel Hotel in Downtown Dubai, Wakame is open for lunch and dinner, and also provides private catering, culinary master classes and delivery options. The restaurant specialises in fine-dining and offers an innovative take on traditional Asian cuisine.
