Catfish explores food for wellness
Inspired by the flavours of Africa, Catfish is bringing a new kind of dining experience to the Dubai food scene. With an audacious flair, the concept combines traditional African ingredients with modern wellness savoir faire to create a mouthwatering palate that’s bursting with flavour and vitality. Catfish will be available for dine in at Kitchen Nation, customers can also order online directly from the kitchen or via Deliveroo and Zomato.
Founded by foodie and health expert Gbemi Giwa, popularly known for her platform Dubai Fit Foodie, the name Catfish is inspired by the Nigerian delicacy, “Catfish Pepper Soup” a broth that’s made using whole Catfish allowing the bones to release their collagen into the broth which is then seasoned with a mixture of fermented condiments, warm spices and aromatic herbs. The soup is often used as a remedy for cold and flu.
Catfish’s menu explores food for wellness, introducing ingredients like papaya leaves which are known to boost the immunity and support digestion, cloves which promote strong bones as well as Gbemi’s favorite spice trio, ginger, lime, scotch bonnet and local honey, a mixture that cures anything from a sore throat to a cold. Everything on the menu is organic and free from gluten , raw dairy, soy, and refined sugar.
With everything cooked from scratch, you can find dishes such as Mama’s Soup which is made from Coconut chicken broth, brown rice noodles, soft boiled egg, fragrant herbs, African miso and the Dancing Waist which consists of Grilled peri-peri chicken, smoky jollof rice, kale lime salad, grilled plantain with hibiscus barbecue sauce. Vegan options are also available.
