The location is the ultimate in Insta-goals
With beach views, sea breezes, and fairy-lights lining the walkways, La Mer is absolutely stunning, and SIKKA Café's terrace offers sweeping views of all of it.
Enjoy the views with delish food, and just chill - enjoying the laid-back vibes of La Mer.
The fusion-food is DE-LISH
There's something for everyone with SIKKA Café's menu. It's an extensive menu that fuses Emirati cuisine, with Indian and Persian dishes too, and there's plenty of mouthwatering dishes to try.
Because there are so many amazing hot and cold mezze dishes, it's best to opt for the SIKKA Experience which serves 11 signature dishes in sample-sized portions and temptingly combines Emirati, Persian and Indian flavours in one complete meal so you can get a taste for everything at just AED 129 per person.
From hummus to Persian kebabs and butter chicken you're sorted for amazing food.
Make sure you leave room for dessert too
With the specialty dessert - baked labneh cheesecake, your mind will be BLOWN. It's creamy, soft but also not too sweet.
There are plenty of awesome desserts, but this one is a stand-out.
And you MUST try the legaimat with the famous karak
Or brekky for a lazy morning in paradise
For an easy morning wake-up, head to SIKKA Café for the SIKKA breakfast - which is an absolute steal.
For AED124 for two people, you will get a choice of laban, fresh juices, local tea or traditional coffee, along with Arabic cheeses, falafel, chebab pancakes with date syrup and fresh veggies PLUS a choice of Baith tamat (slow-cooked eggs with tomato, cumin and herbs), shakshuka or two eggs any style.
WHAT A BARGAIN!
If that doesn't tickle your fancy, there's also plenty of other sharing plates to choose from, including foul, paratha, balaleet (sweet noodles with saffron omlette and local honey) and LOADS more.
