UAE residents looking for food that's fresh and free of artificial preservatives and pesticides now have a new restaurant to check out.
On Thursday, September 17, Let's Organic Restaurant and Cafe opened doors at Al Ferdous Complex in Jumeirah. The restaurant serves organic Mediterranean and Italian cuisine with plenty of vegan and gluten-free options. Guests can expect pastas, risottos and fresh fruit juices served in a chic space, with minimalistic decor, featuring plenty of greenery and natural light.
The restaurant is the brainchild of Ahmed Mohammad Abdulla Alqaz Alfalasi, founder of the Let’s Organic department store.
Alfalasi first launched the department store in December 2019 to provide customers with organic products from farm to home. In order to do so, Let’s Organic works with the UAE government, embraces ethical and sustainable practices and supports local farmers and producers.
“During my life’s journey, I discovered the sheer joy of eating and living within an organic lifestyle. From the food on my table, to the products and detergents I use to clean my home and all other aspects of my life, my family and I evolved a complete organic living,” says Alfalasi.
“Let’s Organic goes far beyond just a business for us, this is our commitment to touch each and everyone’s life in a positive way and a pledge to contribute to a healthier society.”
The Let's Organic Restaurant & Cafe, which is located in the same building complex as the department store and headed by Chef Marco Pirola, is an extension of these principles, serving foods free of genetically modified organisms, pesticides, artificial preservatives and flavours, antibiotics and hormones.
“Our bodies are not designed to digest foods loaded with additives to give them eternal shelf life,” says Alfalasi. “We believe that the basic need of people is to have access to good, healthy food.”
