Found this new trendy place in Jumeirah 3, Volt Kitchen is a fusion restaurant of anything you like… from burgers, salads, sushi and steak. This place is a haven for meat lovers. The exterior is promising. They have an al fresco dining, decorated with plants and little white tear drop shaped bulbs as table centerpieces. The back patio would be a great place for people who likes to dine outside but doesn’t want the buzz of the streets. However, it is not open yet. Interior is all black with large glass windows.. so huge that from the inside it also feels like you are dining outside.
Isn’t it nice when the menu actually comes to life with clear pictures of the dishes? Volt Kitchen has an amazing iPad menu app where you can see their dishes come to life in crisp images. Our server suggested all the best sellers from starters to desserts. Although she was a bit loud, I think it is because of her enthusiasm towards her work. We noticed that on the menu, there were only two vegan options, Quinoa salad and Potato Bravas. Since my friend is on a vegan diet for 10 days we ordered these two dishes.
I like the quinoa salad. It has lots of colors, texture, and taste. The herb lemon dressing blends perfectly with the pomegranate, golden raisins and tomato. The pine seeds and hazel nut gives texture and richer taste to the quinoa and arugula. The serving is good for two if you are ordering a main dish, more than enough for one person that will stuff you in a healthy way of course.
Potato Bravas as per the menu is crunchy Holland potatoes with Brava spices. I like the taste of the sauce, red is a bit spicy and white is garlicky. The texture of the potato needs to improve though, as there is no crunchiness at all.
Volt Kitchen is a 4/5 for me. My suggestions would be to add more vegetarian options from starters to the main course.
I think Volt will look neat in the day time too. The greenery wall at their back patio and plants at the entrance is inviting for a nice brunch.
