Avli by Tashas unveils a hearty yet healthy summer business lunch menu bursting with Athenian flavours

Greek cuisine is synonymous with comfort, fresh ingredients and no-fuss recipes that have remained unchanged for generations. If it ain’t broke, right? Avli by tashas, an elegant Greek eatery in the heart of DIFC, harnesses these elements into an elevated menu of Mediterranean flavours, with a twist.

Avli by Tashas business lunch

Start off the afternoon at Avli with a zingy tuna carpaccio

Nothing says island living quite like long lunches; although speedy service means dishes fly out of the kitchen, Avli by tashas’s summer business lunch menu is one to savour. Surrounded by a mid-afternoon buzz, olive trees and laid-back Athenian atmosphere, begin by selecting a starter from a delicious range of cold and hot appetisers including tuna carpaccio (a MOJEH favourite), calamari salad and wonton wraps – a lamb and mince pie folded into crispy wanton wraps, served with silky burnt tomato butter.

Linguine, balsamic, lemon and chilli come together in the Valsamikos pasta

Mains are equally as mouthwatering with the menu’s latest additions of red snapper and valsamikos pasta tossed in balsamic and stracciatella sitting alongside classics such as the chicken souvlaki. Indulge in a pick-me-up before heading back to the office with the delightfully sweet and summery peach pavlova, or cleanse your palette with an array of zingy sorbets.

Sorbets are a delicious way to beat the heat

Though feasting on a menu of homely cuisine could leave you feeling lethargic, Avli by tashas’s healthy take on tradition is as light as its airy interiors and leaves you energised to take on the rest of the afternoon. Book now
