East meets West at this cool, contemporary multi-cuisine restaurant. Boasting some truly unforgettable sea views and entertaining live cooking stations, White should be right at the top of your Abu Dhabi restaurant bucket list.
True to its name, the venue has a stunning all-white interior with unique statement pieces; think hexagonal lampshades, textured walls with arches cut out and huge windows providing a stunning pool of natural light right in the centre, standing in contrast to the warm lighting present throughout the rest of the restaurant. White is based at Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort, a prime location for chic dining and a stone’s throw from some enticing post-dinner activities, such as the beautiful lagoon pool and the Mediterranean-inspired sun deck.
Personalised dishes are the name of the game here. Food is prepared right in front of you, allowing you to interact and chat with the chefs to tailor the dishes to your liking and indulge all your foodie whims. The geographical variety of the menu means that there are dishes here to suit every palate, whether you’re in the mood for Italian, Chinese or Indian.
Breakfast and brunch here are legendary. You'll find classic brunch dishes like eggs florentine, honey granola, shakshouka, and smoothie bowls, alongside pancakes, crepes, french toast and waffles from the pastry corner. You’ll also find some less traditional options on the savoury breakfast a la carte menu, including platters of cheese, cold cuts and smoked salmon, and a quinoa salad with Persian feta, pomegranate pumpkin seeds and tarragon.
Continue to dinner and this menu will take you on a global culinary journey. Try a taste of Levantine with some manakeesh, grilled halloumi or foul medammes (Egyptian fava beans). Move over to India and treat yourself to some paratha bhaji, south Indian dosa or vegetable samosas, before heading to East Asia for some indonesian curry noodles, chicken and prawn dim sum and chicken congee.
