Skye and Walker is a sustainable eatery for globetrotters and savvy foodies in Dubai. It is located at the Marriott Executive Apartments in Deira. They pride themselves on being one of the few restaurants to incorporate the sustainable concept not just with the food but also in the operation of the eatery.
When you enter the place, you will automatically have that sense of it being environmentally friendly. From the furniture to the flooring and decor, they are all made from natural, recycled and reclaimed materials. There is also an effort to recycle, reduce waste, save water and energy and they don’t use toxic cleaning materials and instead use biodegradable take out containers. So much so that they won the Catering News ME’s Sustainable Restaurant Award last year.
When I first stepped inside, I noticed the airy atmosphere. It’s almost like you’re sitting outside but you’re not. I believe that Skye and Walker has one of the best natural lightings I have ever seen in a restaurant and it’s one of the things that I like the most about it.
When it comes to the food, they offer guilt free nutritious dishes including vegan, raw and gluten free choices that are inspired by fresh, local ingredients.
We started by ordering some appetizers. Firstly, we tried the baked kale. It was crispy and tasted like regular chips except it’s healthier. It’s so unique and I have never seen anything like it before.
We tried the Zucchini noodles cooked with garlic, onion, cherry tomato, basil and shaved parmesan. It was tasty with the cheese but I needed something more flavorful so I paired it with the herb crusted chicken breast. I also ordered a roasted salmon fillet because it was light and I wanted to see how they make their salmon fillets.
We ordered the avocado caprese and the fruit salad too just to add more healthy options. So far, everything that was served was up to par with some dishes exceeding my expectations like the chicken breast and the salmon. I am already planning on coming back to try the other dishes.
To end our meal, we ordered some date waffles and ABB&J or more popularly known as almond butter, banana and jelly sandwich. I was blown away by the ABB&J as it was so good and I even asked the chef how it was made. I thought it was the peanut butter but he said that the secret is in the almonds and that this is really one of their best sellers.
Overall, I am very glad that I discovered this hidden gem that is Skye and Walker. The place is perfect for when you want to work without being interrupted. The tables come complete with electrical sockets and they have a decent internet connection.
The prices are also reasonable and they are even partnered with the Entertainer so you really get the most value for your money here. I know I’m late to the party and I just discovered the restaurant but it instantly became one of my favorites. I would recommend it and I am absolutely coming back.
