Open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Market by Edition is a beautiful eatery with a key focus on wholesome, healthy and delicious food. Conceptualised by famed British chef Tom Aikens, the dishes are crafted with 100% organic ingredients (with local produce used where possible) and cater to a variety of special diets – there are ample options for vegetarians and vegans, alongside creations with meat and fish.
The space is modern, chic and totally inspiring. Spacious and airy, the corners are filled with homely green potted plants and the wooden tables and chairs cater to groups of all sizes. There is also a small terrace with outdoor seating facing the water. We loved the various open kitchens dedicated to different specialities – such as the baked goods corner and juice bar area at breakfast time.
The Huntr visited Market by Edition for breakfast during a fabulous staycation at the Edition Abu Dhabi. The breakfast menu is split between 6 sections – ‘Healthy Breakfast’, ‘Bakery & Pastry’, ‘Cold Cuts’, ‘Breakfast Specials’, ‘Market Eggs’ and ‘Sides’. The Huntr tried the Acai Bowl (40AED), which is pretty as a picture and crafted with banana, coconut shavings and goji berries, plus the Cured Salmon on Multiseed Bagel (60AED), which features dill cream, beetroot, sprouts and garden greens – which was delicious, filling and faultless. We washed it all down with health shots (15AED) each) and the Green Detox Juice (30AED), which is freshly made to order with celery, lemon juice, cucumber, broccoli, parsley and apple.
Drinks-wise, Market by Edition offers a variety of tea and infusions, coffee (sadly not speciality), fresh and signature juices, smoothies and health shots. There is also a fully licensed bar (from 12noon). The lunch and dinner menus offer a tempting array of light bites, starters and hearty main courses, including fish, chicken, lamb, beef, vegetarian-friendly noodles, grain, Buddha and poke bowls, salads, and healthy desserts. We can’t wait to return for lunch and dinner soon…
