Where to eat in Dubai? - Try Markette !! ( Restaurant review)

We are always on lookout for a nice restaurant which would serve us healthy, homely and of course low cal food. Trust me that's hard to find in Dubai!!
 Markette Restaurant & Crêperie- a much awaited restaurant/cafe has opened , we wanted to try it out. Looking at the homely and cozy look of the place we thought it must be serving fresh, home style low cal food and we were not disappointed. 
 I was impressed by the  interiors- homely, cozy and friendly. They have created the look of an cozy kitchen with kitchen shelves, accessories, chalkboards, pendant light fixtures and wooden ceiling. My current muse being hand written chalk boards I was very happy to see the handwritten chalkboards giving it a country cozy look. 

The menu is creatively displayed on  Chalkboards hanging on the top of the shelves. The shelves looked colorful and merry with rows of mason jars filled with breakfast cereal,pastas and   other dry ingredients. The effect is that looking at those jars filled with goodies can dramatically increase your appetite. 

The interior has a feel of a cozy feel with wooden ceiling. The flooring also matches the entire look - a nostalgic look. It has nice view of the Dubai Mall aquarium. It does feel better to watch the sharks and other fish rather than staring at people:) 

I liked the lanterns, terrariums, small herb plants on the shelves which added charm to the place. The menu is exciting as well. We went for Caesar salad , chicken avocado salad and chicken paillard. Sorry, We are on diet. They do have a wonderful range of courses and dessert as well.  Everything was amazingly fresh, delicious and looked gorgeous.  Chicken paillard was pounded , grilled and spiced chicken served with grilled vegetables. We all loved it including my 2 year old. 

Location: Dubai mall.
Price: 50 -200 AED
