The UAE’s first kosher restaurant, Armani/Kaf, opened in the Burj Khalifa’s Armani Hotel Dubai on Thursday, September 17.

Armani/Kaf will specialise in kosher cuisine that complies with Jewish dietary laws (kashrut) and will be operated under the rabbinical supervision of Rabbi Levi Y Duchman, Rabbi of the UAE, who has certified the venue with Glatt Kosher and Pas Yisroel certifications from Emirates Kosher Supervising Agency, the only UAE based kosher certifier, the restraint said in a statement.

Resident guests of the hotel will also be offered the option of kosher in-room dining services.

Located in the world’s tallest building in Downtown Dubai, the 40-seater pop-up dinner venue is located on the ground floor of the luxury hotel, adjacent to contemporary Japanese restaurant Armani/Hashi.

The opening season menu include spaghetti bolognese with fresh basil and cherry tomatoes, pan fried sea bass with parsnip puree, and beef bourguignon served with root vegetables, mushroom pilaf rice and thyme.

Middle Easter specialties such as hummus with tahini, baba ganoush, fattoush salad and lentil soup are also part of the menu.
Armani/Kaf is open from Sundays to Thursday from 6.30pm-11.30pm. It will be closed for dine-in guests on Fridays but will offer a special take-away menu for Shabbat, the Jewish Sabbath.

The restaurant said that it will also soon announce a kosher delivery service too.

Recently, Dubai-based Al Habtoor Group has said that it will introduce kosher food and beverages across all its properties in the UAE including Hilton Dubai, V Hotel, Habtoor Palace Dubai, LXR Hotel and Resorts, Habtoor Grand Resort, Autograph Collection LLC, Metropolitan Hotel and Habtoor Polo Resort.

Habtoor Hospitality has partnered with Elli’s Kosher Kitchen (EKK) which was founded by Ellie Kriel in 2019 in the UAE.
