There are many, many options in the Dubai Mall for visitors looking for something to eat. Milas distinguishes itself by offering a wide selection of authentic Emirati food alongside international dishes with an Arab twist. It allows shoppers who find themselves hungry whilst deep in the mall to investigate local delicacies, rather than relying on the tried-and-tested international cuisine found elsewhere.
The restaurant is decorated in a stylish, up-to-date fashion that reflects the modern approach it takes to Emirati cooking. Traditional food is presented in an appealing, aesthetic style and subtle twists are added to bring a new dimension to classic Emirati flavour combinations.
The restaurant offers a range of light bites for people who want a snack or a starter. These include Bayd, a dish composed of scrambled eggs and peppers, and balaleet, a sweet omelette spiced with saffron. Other options include falafel bites, harees with ghee and homemade labneh.
A selection of different salads are available with ingredients ranging from rocca cheese to beetroot and even yoghurt. Lots of variations on nakhi can also be purchased. This traditional Emirati dish involves a base of chickpea hummus topped with either fried bread, vegetables or meat.
Milas has a range of pizzas that are baked using oriental dough and topped with traditional Arabic ingredient, such as fried nuts, crispy onions and chickpea hummus. They also have their own Arab burgers, which use oriental dough for the buns and spiced lamb to make the burger.
Main meals involve marinated beef, lamb, chicken or fish, often served with a uniquely Arabic range of vegetables and spices and accompanied by rice. Many interesting flavour combinations that western visitors might not have experienced before can be sampled at Milas.
Desserts include fried ice cream topped with date syrup, along with traditional choices like Mouhalabiyeh and Kunafa. More western options include chocolate cake, Nutella cheesecake and chocolate fondants. Ice creams with Arabic flavours like miski, Arabic coffee and saffron can also be selected by people looking to cool down after a spicy meal.
A range of aromas are also provided on the basis that smell is as important as taste in a meal.
