Dubai Herbal and Treatment Centre (DHTC) has launched a new food and beverage concept - Eat Well.
DHTC claims Eat Well is the first science-based nutrition and sustainable eatery in Dubai with gluten and sugar free dishes. The restaurant sports an environmentally sustainable menu as well, and follows a sustainable purchasing program whenever possible, the company informed in a press statement.
The restaurant will also offer largely paleo, vegetarian and vegan based options to diners.
Wellness chef Patrick Ikinofo said: “We aim to provide a universal, trusted standard for healthy and sustainable dining to DHTC patients and the public. Our focus is ‘better-for-you’ meals. We have witnessed decent success since opening which is a testament of the increasing demand of consumers for meal options that are both healthy and environmentally sustainable and we look forward to this growth.”
However, it was revealed in a panel discussion at the Caterer Food and Business Conference in March 2017 that eating healthy in the UAE still carries a premium price point, driven by scarcity of sources, supply chain challenges, food cost issues and lack of proper education about healthy food choices.
