Dubai’s first pharaonic restaurant opens at Al Seef
KHOFO features contemporary pharaonic design rooted in ancient luxury
Dubai-UAE: 2 July, 2018 – Inviting Dubai’s epicures to relive the glorious days of the ancient Egyptian civilisation and its pharaohs, and dine in style on delicacies inspired by traditional Egyptian flavours, KHOFO, the city’s very first pharaonic restaurant, has opened its doors at Al Seef, the picturesque Creekside destination by Meraas.
Spanning 7,500 square metres of indoor and outdoor space, the majestic restaurant featuring stately columns and hieroglyphic murals, complemented by servers dressed in resplendent pharaoh-inspired attire, transports its contemporary and cosmopolitan visitors back in time to ancient Egypt during the reign of King Khufu.
KHOFO offers food connoisseurs a vintage feast that showcases Egypt’s eclectic cuisine. The newly opened eatery boasts an extensive selection of authentic Egyptian dishes rooted in time-honoured culinary traditions, such as molokia (Jew’s mallow soup), okra, oxtail soup, mahashi (stuffed vegetables) and hawawshi (pita bread with minced meat). Some of the signature menu attractions include typical Egyptian breakfast with a choice of eggs, foul (fava beans) and falafel. For lunch and dinner, diners can choose from a wide variety of hot and cold appetisers, soups, salads, stews, tajines, mixed grills, seafood and desserts.
Majid Al Usaimi, Owner of KHOFO, said: “KHOFO aspires to set itself apart with its innovative pharaonic concept that offers Dubai’s residents and visitors a classic and unparalleled dining experience. We pride ourselves on our friendly and attentive service and sophisticated yet welcoming environment. Our décor and food are elements that reflect our creative, qualitative and distinctive approach to hospitality. Dubai is known for embracing cutting-edge concepts, and we are confident that its gourmets will love our new offering.”
KHOFO is open from 8am to 12 midnight on weekdays and from 8am to 2am on weekends.
Located along the bustling Al Seef promenade at Dubai Creek, KHOFO, Dubai’s first pharaonic restaurant, features majestic columns and hieroglyphic murals, reminiscent of the lavish palace of Khufu (also known as Cheops), who ruled Egypt during the Fourth Dynasty and was the first pharaoh to build a pyramid in Giza. Spanning 7,500 square metres, the eatery reimagines ancient Egyptian architecture for a contemporary international audience with sleek surfaces, stylish furniture and plenty of natural light.
