Soy

From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2007 Typically of a mall-based restaurant, even though this pagoda-style eatery with its candlelit terrace is situated in a secluded outdoor area of Ibn Battuta Mall, eating here can be a noisy experience. With a fresh and modern interior, Soy’s combination of Asian cuisine reflects staples from across the region, with Thai food forming the foundation alongside an intriguing pick and mix selection from other nations. The Balinese seafood satay – cooked with a stick of aromatic lemongrass instead of the passé skewer – proves a soft and juicy appetiser, while the Chinese golden coins (tiny rounds of sesame prawn on toast) are crisp, flavoursome and generously loaded with prawns. Wok-fried fish dishes are fresh and full flavoured while a stir-fried ‘Wonder Wok’, comprises tender chunks of chicken smothered with a thick and richly creamy sauce. A sweet-smelling papaya side salad balances the meal’s richness by being fresh and zingy with a pleasingly pungent fish dressing. For desserts, crunchy honey-coated noodles with a sprinkling of sesame seeds are served with a delicious vanilla ice cream, while an exotic fruit salad is a fresh and ripe selection of mango, melon, grapes, and pineapple served with a delicately carved strawberry. We’ve had trouble with the service in the past and the over-abundance of squealing kids can be grating, but the food at Soy is really very good.
