Executive Sous Chef Shammi de Costa adds his personal touch to the menu at the popular beachside restaurant located at Traders Hotel, Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi.
Abu Dhabi, 03 January 2018 – Afyä, one of Abu Dhabi’s most charming beachside restaurants, has launched an all-new menu featuring more than 40 new dishes.
Executive Sous Chef Shammi De Costa at Traders Hotel, Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi has created a wide range of signature dishes catering to the diverse palates of guests that dine at the hugely popular venue.
The variety of cuisines is evident throughout the menu starting from the choice of appetisers like the traditional Arabic lentil soup and the Cobb salad featuring blue cheese, cheddar, smoked bacon and marinated grilled chicken.
To encourage guests to opt for sharing platters, Shammi has introduced a number of starters that are suitable for two like the Rainbow Nachos, which includes chili con carne and cheddar cheese sauce with guacamole, tomato salsa and sour cream. An excellent choice for groups is the Traders Fried Combo, which features buffalo wings, mozzarella sticks, fried calamari and spicy potato wedges.
Executive Sous Chef Shammi De Costa at Traders Hotel, Qaryat Al Beri, said: “Afyä is home to people of all nationalities and ages. We decided to revamp the menu in order to meet the needs of these diverse groups.
Making it a truly international spread is the wide selection of Western, grilled and Asian specialities on the menu. Whether a guest is in the mood for beef ribs, rack of lamb, biryani, curry or a seafood platter, we’ve got it all at Afyä.”
Patrons of the restaurant will be excited to see a whole section on the menu dedicated to sandwiches and burgers from around the world. Shammi has also added a number of wraps inspired by the local cuisine, including chicken shawarma and lamb kofta, as well as a few panini options with Cajun chicken and marinated roasted vegetables. Favourites like the Traders classic burger and the Traders club sandwich remain on the menu and as is customary at Afyä, these will be served with parmesan crinkle cut fries and a salad on the side.
Those who like Italian cuisine are sure to be pleased as the chefs at Afyä assist guests to customise their own dishes. The new menu offers the flexibility to choose the kind of pasta and sauce, and also features eight types of stone-baked pizzas including the Traders signature pizza topped with beef bolognaise, buffalo mozzarella, rocket leaves, cherry tomatoes and truffle oil.
The ‘Sweet Moments’ section in the menu includes signature desserts by the restaurant’s skilled pastry chefs. The passion fruit crème brûlée and the chocolate dome with pistachio ice-cream and berries are already popular choices.
