Umi Shio, meaning ‘seasalt’ in Japanese, launched by new Japanese/Argentinian Chef Cristian Goya, open from now until mid-May 2019
Dubai, 27 January 2019 : Known as one of Dubai’s best beach and pool experiences, Summersalt at Jumeirah Al Naseem has now launched a new Japanese fusion pop-up concept, created at the hands of new Japanese/Argentinian Chef Cristian Goya.
Open for lunch and dinner from today, Umi Shio fuses the artful craft of Japanese cooking, with the delicious flavours of South America , alongside a selection of new Japanese-inspired cocktails, mocktails and varieties of Sake, all served impeccably on the shores of Madinat Jumeirah’s private beach, with views of the ever-iconic Burj Al Arab.
Designed to encourage sharing, the new menu is split between appetisers, crudo, soups, tempura, seafood and meat, created using authentic Japanese and South American ingredients such as Miso, Yuzu, Truffle and lime in abundance.
The dishes include Roasted Langoustines in a Sweet and Sour sauce and Miso Caramelized Eggplant to start, followed by five types of Crudo from Classic Seabass Ceviche, Truffle Seafood Ceviche, Seabass Sashimi, Yellowtail Sashimi and Salmon Tataki.
Main dishes include Saikyo Miso Black Cod and White Rice, Grilled Octopus, Potato Salad and Salsa Criolla or Miso Marinated Seabass for fish and seafood, and Anticucho (famed meat dishes from Peru) Lamb Chops, Corn-Fed Chicken Breast with Teriyaki Truffle Sauce or Wagyu Beef Tataki, for meat eaters. Desserts include a selection of Mochi, Cheesecake Brûlée served with Mandarin Sorbet or Espresso Glace.
The new team led by Chef Cristian has been trained with extensive knowledge of both Japanese and South American cuisine and service, offering guests an authentic taste and experience of Japan, facing Dubai’s most cherished icons in Burj Al Arab.
Umi Shio is the first representation of Jumeirah’s ambitious F&B plans, led by CEO Jose Silva and Chief Culinary Officer, Michael Ellis. Speaking about the concept, Michael Ellis said: “Umi Shio is a truly fantastic new addition to Jumeirah Al Naseem’s dining offering. Not only served under the gaze of one of Dubai’s most famed icons, the flavours of the dishes crafted by Chef Cristian, complemented by the service and knowledge of the team, makes this a truly unique experience, and one that I’m sure the city will enjoy. We are very much looking forward to welcoming new concepts such as these into the culinary scene, bringing our ambitious plans for dining to life.”
Nestled in a beach-front retreat Summersalt is a hidden oasis and the perfect place to spend a secluded evening. The restaurant can cater for up to 90 diners both inside and outside. With a separate Shisha lounge, guests can enjoy the best views of the Burj Al Arab in Dubai with a chilled outdoor experience - relaxing and feasting on delicious flavourful dishes, whilst serenaded by eclectic music and the sounds of the Arabian sea.
