A Fine Balance

As you sow, so shall you reap - and you are what you eat. At the recently-opened Balancecafé, we put these sage aphorisms into practice - and make sure the results are as delicious as they are healthy.

Balancecafé is the first of an integrated concept we call "Balance," a wellness club focused on restoring internal rhythms through holistic lifestyle guidance, therapies and food. At Balancecafé, we've combined ancient Ayurvedic concepts, yogic know-how and macrobiotic cuisine with modern-day spa-oriented nutrition to create a dining experience that'll leave you feeling good inside and out.

Enter the café (located on the 3rd floor of Oasis Centre, Dubai) and you'll already get a sense of what we're up to. The airy 6,000-square-foot space is free of clutter and chaos; minimalist design touches balanced with warm orange interiors create a cosy feeling while giving you plenty of room to relax. After all, eating is a sensory experience that begins with the eyes.

The holistic approach extends to the menu design, which is organized by mood, body type and the five elements (space, air, fire, earth and water). Our cooking technique - using water, milk, broth, citrus juices, versatile oils, varieties of cereals, grains, lentils and natural sweeteners - achieves a fine balance between flavours and rejuvenating nourishment, so you get great-tasting food that's guilt-free, too. 

My personal favourites include Gluten-free Squash Cannelloni, Organic Barley and Mushroom Soup, Kaffir Lime and Soy Beef Burger, Teriyaki Glazed Tofu and good ol' Dhal Makhani. A special kids' menu keeps the little ones happily (and healthily) satisfied.

Everything's made fresh to order, so while you wait for your meal you can browse through our library of books on Ancient Wisdom, Yoga, Meditation, Life Sciences, Enlightenment, Self-Healing and Healthy Cooking.

At Balancecafé, we practice what we preach - so breathe in, breathe out, and bon appétit!
