On Easter Sunday I decided to meet friends and attend a networking event with Citispi for breakfast at Eat Greek Dubai Mall tucked cozily away in the star atrium on LG level near Tim Hortons
As we waited for our orders there was some malfunction in the kitchen and we waited longer than the normal time for our order to arrive but we were looked after extremely well by their staff, especially need to mention that it was a pleasure to meet their patisserie global chef Melanie Smith and Andrey as they made us feel special to make up for the delay
Of course the breakfast made up for all of it . Delicious and superbly presented
Here is a slideshow of some orders of our group.
I loved the interiors , really warm and the lit up bird cages hanging from the ceiling
We were honoured to take home the amazing Tsoureki greek bread in our goodie bags and want to share the significance of that.
If you haven’t tried tsoureki (Greek Easter bread) before, then you are certainly missing out! Soft, fluffy, with a beautiful brown semi-soft crust and an amazing stringy texture.
One of the oldest traditions of Greek Orthodox Christians are the red dyed eggs, which are associated with the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus.
The egg’s shell symbolizes the empty rock tomb from which Jesus arose after his crucifixion. It is used as a universal means of greeting and presentation for Christian believers, while also foretelling the eternal life experience which awaits true believers after death.
The choice of red goes back to early Christians, who stained eggs red in memory of the blood of Jesus, who was crucified for the salvation of all mankind .
Tradition dictates that there are 3 strands in the braid of tsoureki, it can be shaped as a crown or braided loaf.
The bread is blessed and given as gifts.
So having said that would I go back to Eat Greek or recommend it…….definitely.
This time I am going for lunch.
