They say it’s very important to start your day with a healthy breakfast. So here I am at an organic cafe by the name Ultra. They are located in Emaar Square located just opposite to Dubai Mall. The inside of this cafe is trendy, surrounded by modern art and color. I love the way the sunlight would pour into this restaurant through it’s glass wall. Since it’s located in a business area I see and hear people around me talking business and building relations and at the same time its not crowded. Perfect ambiance to start my day. Also notice their colored napkins and glass on our table below.
One thing I like about eating at ultra is their menu is all organic. Whatever you order you can be assured it free of chemical additives and more nutritious by nature. For Drinks we tried the following:
- Orange Juice
- Strawberry, banana Smoothie with quinoa milk
- Hot Chocolate
- Wheatgrass, Carrot, Lemon Juice
I normally don’t have smoothies early morning but when i saw that they were serving with quinoa milk i thought i should try it. I haven’t seen this milk in much restaurants. Quinoa milk is supposed to be high in nutrients, proteins, vitamins and antioxidants. Normally when you try to replace your full fat milk with a healthier version there would be a drop in taste but in this case the quinoa milk made a good combination with strawberries and banana.
Oh and I tried the drink with wheatgrass for the first time! after hearing lot about health benefits with wheatgrass. The drink came to my table with it’s unique color but after a few sips I realized I can only enjoy the health benefits but not the taste of wheatgrass :(
- Double eggs cooked as requested served on whole wheat toast
- Berry pancakes with greek yoghurt and berry compote
I ordered the Pancakes and they’ve come out wonderful. No flaws here. If you love pancakes then you should enjoy this very much. I love the plate that eggs came in. The Eggs served looked lovely, wish I tried them them but I had my juices and pancakes to finish anyway. They’ve got so much more to offer in their breakfast menu. You can simply check their menu and pricing on their website: http://www.ultra.ae/
Now here’s an interesting one for you. The breakfast experience was lovely, the food was great and reasonably priced(considering the fact it was organic too) and the ambiance was healthy enough to make it a good start to the day until I reached the parking counter of Emaar square. I spent my time at ultra for about 1 hour and 15 minutes and I had to pay 40 Dhs as a parking ticket (I could have ordered one more premium breakfast with that amount at Ultra). So beware of this one but hey the good news for you is that parking is FREE on FRIDAYS which is great for families wanting to eat breakfast or lunch and then probably head to Dubai Mall for some activity.
They all also have other interesting items at the counter for the sweet tooth.
