Teible is an upmarket dining concept championing local, seasonal and sustainable food. It forms part of a growing trend in eco-conscious fine dining, and promotes sustainability through its focus on a four-pillar value system of sustainability, seasonality, simplicity and integrity.
Teible’s simple minimalist menu is reflected in its décor. Located in Dubai’s contemporary museum Jameel Arts Centre, the venue’s floor-to-ceiling walls offer beautiful views of the creek of the Jaddaf Waterfront area. The space, designed by award-winning architectural firm waiwai, radiates zen with its Japanese and Scandanavian inspired design. Untreated wooden floors and furniture and accompanied by white walls and punctuated by oversized potted greenery, oozing a sense of simplicity and serenity.
The menu manages to be creative and vibrant while staying centred around a simplistic kitchen approach. Teible’s philosophy extends well beyond flashy plating and instead focuses on producing minimal waste and reducing environmental impact, and its environmental ethos is reflected in every part of their carefully chosen menu. Expect interesting seasonal dishes such as camel ricotta caramelle pasta, Lamb and kimchi with swiss chard and corn, and Garum beef tartare with grated manchego and umami sourdough. Each dish comes accompanied by a well-crafted storyline taking diner on a journey through the inspiration for their dish.
Teible works closely with local farmers across UAE to support them and their goal to use every ingredient in its entirety in order to maximise its potential and conserve resources. An example of this; leftover whey from the cheese-making process is used to create caramel, which then sweetens Sirniki cheesecake hotcakes.
If you fancy any additional sweet treats or pick-me-ups, visit the in-house bakery, which serves hand-made breads and pastries alongside freshly brewed speciaility coffee from La Cabra roastery.
