We’ve been to Yas Mall in Abu Dhabi several times but haven’t heard of Cascade dining area. I was like always known to the food court which is nearby the Vox Cinema.
We visited Dish Dash Cafe/Restaurant which is one of the restaurants in Cascade Dining. This is already nearby the Ferrari World so better make a parking in the Ferrari World area of the mall.
The restaurant has a beautiful view of the roller coaster ride and the fountain. It has a big shisha area which is close to the fountain view. Full restaurant is expansive! It opens from 10am-12mn and serves Emirati dishes and fine Middle Eastern cuisines.
On our visit, we had the Fatoush (mixed of vegetables like lettuce, tomato, cucumber, mint, radish, watercress, lemon vinaigrette and pomegranate sauce), Hummus with meat and pine nuts, moutabal (grilled eggplant with tahini sauce, garlic and lemon juice), Shrimp bil Fukhara (olive oil, garlic, lemon juice and parsley), Dish Dash mixed grill (shish taouk, lamb kofta, lamb cubes, arayes, lamb chops with fries), Moutabal (grilled eggplant, tahini sauce, garlic and lemon juice) and Fondant cake with vanilla ice cream. I love the Kiwi smoothie which was made thick and quenched my thirst. It was so sunny outside and not to mentioned the long walk we made because we parked wrongly 🙂
We actually had the normal type of food that we usually have in a Lebanese restaurant. I was looking for a different approach or lets say a twist on the presentation to make it more enticing while preserving the original flavour. Nevertheless, Head Chef, Chef Ahmad has indeed served us the real taste of it. I even enjoyed the Shrimp Bil Fukhara which is so delicious I guess it’s under the Soup section.
It’s a great place to relax while dining because of the views it offers. Even if there is shisha area, it’s guarded with glass door so not much to worry for children. Staffs are friendly and even the Manager, Mr. Cesar. Dish Dash offers different kinds of beverages from cocktails, coffee, tea, ice cream and shakes aside from juices, smoothies and soft drinks.
