Traditional culinary experiences: Turkish Village Restaurant

Shereen Shabnam

Recently we ventured to the Award-winning Turkish Village Restaurant to sample their diverse range of unique authentic culinary experiences that included especially curated dishes blending authentic Turkish ingredients and flavors, complete with the much-loved art of Turkish hospitality.

We discovered that the restaurant offers so much more than just good food as we entered the Jumeirah branch of the restaurant. Starting from a retail experience to a selection of delectable food with seasonal flavours and impeccable presentation, we tried different inspiring food concepts, and each was a fun and social culinary experience best enjoyed in a group.

The Turkish Village Restaurant has a capacity for large events that can accommodate over 500 guests over three levels and can curate menus that can be custom made to suit any corporate or family event. When I visited with family, we opted for the a la carte menu as we wanted to try different dishes and each one was better than the next. My favourite was a metre long ‘pide’ or pastry which came with interesting fillings of meat and cheese fresh from the oven.

More recently we ventured with there with a group of friends and tried the Turkish mangal or barbecue that includes staple starters with meat marinated with spices overnight. We selected tender marinated chicken, succulent lamb, beef, kebabs and sausages and prepared the meal together at grill tables that come equipped with a private charcoal barbeque and a custom-made extractor.

The mangal meal was served with salads, fresh bread out of the oven, sauces, cold starters and water or ayran. The Mangal experience can be enjoyed for lunch and dinner at AED 50/- per person that includes charcoal, water, ayran, salad and cold starters on the table while the chicken and meat can be availed from the in-house butcher starting at AED 110/- per kg to share.

We then ended the meal on a sweet note with traditional Turkish sweets that include kunafa, baklava stuffed with cream and pistachios and the creamiest rice pudding in the city. This was the best Turkish culinary experience we have had in Dubai as it offers an authentic dining experience at par with what we normally find in Istanbul or other parts of Turkey.

Before leaving the restaurant, we stopped at the gourmet grocer named Bakkal (Meaning Grocery store in Turkish) on the ground floor for retail therapy. Bakkal features a diverse range of fresh, dried and frozen goods imported from Turkey every week and is a dream store for party lovers looking to get ready snacks that can be prepared easily for large families and intimate parties.

The three level Turkish Village Restaurant is located strategically in Jumeirah 1 (across La Mer, next to Spinneys and the Jumeirah Grand Mosque). It offers a laid-back memorable and interactive dining experience, within a warm and welcoming ambience and is also a one-stop shop for artisanal Turkish products. We left with bags full of Turkish delights and naturally, I got some extra desserts to enjoy at home later.

Explore traditional BBQ experiences at Turkish Village Restaurant

One of the most socially interactive culinary experiences the world over is having a barbecue with friends and family and this concept is most popular in South Africa, where a ‘Braai’ or barbecue can be a weekly experience.

In Dubai, the best on table barbecue experience comes in the form of the Turkish Mangal at the award-winning Turkish Village Restaurant where chefs use premium meat, authentic Turkish ingredients and flavors and like the South African Braai, the meat is cooked over sizzling hot coals to bring out the best flavours in the meat.

The atmosphere surrounding a Turkish mangal experience and a Braai is one full of enjoyment and common on weekends, birthdays, national holidays, graduations and on any occasion to celebrate with family and friends.

At Turkish Village Restaurant, diners select premium meat cuts and marinated meat from the restaurant’s in-house butcher to enjoy a feast at grill tables that come equipped with a private charcoal barbeque and a custom-made extractor. The choice of meat includes marinated chicken, kebabs, lamb chops, sausages and beef cubes for guests to prepare the meal together with friends and family.

The Mangal or Braai experience is ideal for gatherings during lunch and dinner at AED 50/- per person that includes charcoal, water, ayran, salads and cold starters on the table while the chicken and meat can be availed starting  at AED 110/- per kg to share. The meal is also served with fresh bread out of the oven, a selection of sauces and water or ayran.

Diners can end the meal on a sweet note with traditional Turkish sweets that include kunafa, milk infused tres-leche cakes, baklava stuffed with cream and pistachios as well as the creamiest baked rice pudding in the city.

The three level Turkish Village Restaurant is located strategically in Jumeirah 1 (across La Mer, next to Spinneys and the Jumeirah Grand Mosque), and in Dubai Festival City Mall promenade overlooking the fountains. It offers a laid-back memorable and interactive dining experience, within a warm and welcoming ambience. It is also a one-stop shop for artisanal Turkish products.

When Technology is a source of Inspiration

By Shereen Shabnam

After working behind the scenes over the last few years for IoT Middle East, Digital Health Middle East and handling global technology clients on a regular basis, I never thought I would be more impressed with new innovations any more until recently when an agency selected me to moderate roundtables with industry professionals across multiple countries and representing brands that are at the forefront of new innovations.

Speaking with industry leaders in the world of technology and in the presence of CIOs from a multitude of different industries has led me to embrace the new world of workplace solutions that has helped me consolidate the way I live and work.

These days, it is possible for people to start the day with a smart toothbrush, get the car started before even getting in and control the temperature, lighting and air quality in the home and office.

During a recent AI conference, we found out more about machine learning and analysing data electronically that is not just impressive but game changing for businesses.  Automating our tasks helps save time and this impresses me most.

Plus of course the new age technologies that allow us to hold virtual meetings and seamless interactions with colleagues abroad are the order of the day especially with remote work during and post pandemic.

Currently we use applications like Whats app, skype, IMO, zoom, facebook and teams which has made communication easier and more affordable. Next week, I will be moderating a panel focused on containerisation followed by an interaction with experts offering workplace solutions globally.

The more roundtables I do for the world of technology, the more impressed I am. If you see our magazine turning into advocates of new age innovations, you know where that inspiration came from.  Let us embrace more apps and solutions that make our life that much more interesting.

Tell us about your challenges as a Business Development professional between different countries?

During my career I met with people from many different cultures and while some did business ethically, many did not and often went back on their word or looked for way that would give them gain and put others at a disadvantage. In business there has to be mutual respect and a win win situation. I feel there is a general lack of attention to morality in the world of leadership today and that is the biggest challenge we face. The definition of morality needs to more aligned amongst business professionals globally.

Tell us about your education?

I graduated with a Masters (M.A.) in Chernihiv National Pedagogical University named Taras Shevchenko and my PhD in Philosophy is from Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) / Germany.

My career started with me working for various global charity organisations and the EU Parliament as part of the team for Human rights, Immigration, Justice, home affairs and Asylum policies.  Following that I became an adviser to the Head of the Political Party Batkivshchyna Yulia Tymoshenko. Now I focus my time on Business Development and the International Organisation of Social Justice.

What is your educational background?

I am a graduate of the International School of Management, Hamburg/ Germany focussing on International Management for my B.Sc. Psychology & Management, I went to the European Business School in Dublin, Ireland and completed an M.A. in Social Management from the “Hamburg University of Applied Sciences in Germany. I also studied Chernihiv National Pedagogical University.

Tell us about your current role in Business Development?

I was always connecting businesses and people who have similar synergies throughout my career so now I bring my expertise of what I learnt before to the table and use that to propose interesting and unique ideas to potential investors or business partners.

Are you working on any new projects now?

Personally, I am finalising my PhD in philosophy, which I believe will help me in my future career. Professionally my aim is to introduce the best of Europe to the Middle East region and also to advise businesses on potential areas of collaboration across continents.

Tell us about your CSR activities?

With the International Organisation of Social Justice we hope to use lessons from the past to help solve social problems, fill the gaps and raise awareness. We cooperate with international organisations in different countries and the UN to implement strategies to improve on the social problems in the more disadvantaged communities.

How do you see your professional life developing?

My aim is to help make changes to the society for the better with my CSR work and advocate better business practices with my Business Development work. I strongly believe in acting honorably and leading with high character and hope to business with like-minded professionals who make ethical decisions and have a moral compass.
