The Best French Food In Dubai
he French community in the UAE and the pace with which it’s growing is both remarkable and logical. Remarkable, because the UAE is not a francophone country. For French corporations looking for a safe base to do business in north African countries which can be politically unstable, Dubai is a logical choice. Meaning that French food in Dubai is not only easy to find but authentic as well.
Here at Trouvaille , we take pride in delivering french food in dubai that gives French residents an authentic taste of home but also provides a great introduction to those who aren’t familiar with it.
Typical Flavors of French Cuisine
One of the best things about French food in Dubai is that one doesn’t have to travel or go on an expensive holiday to appreciate the flair and delicacy of French cuisine. We mentioned in a previous blog post that what is considered ‘ French Cuisine’ will differ from one region to the next. That said, there are signature flavours that are common throughout the country:
- Herbes de Provence: A mixture of dried herbs considered typical to the Provence region of south-eastern France. This traditionally includes thyme, basil, rosemary, tarragon, marjoram, oregano, and bay leaves. Usually used to season meat or fish dishes, this blend instantly infuses a meal with the aromas and flavours of France
- Fleur de Sel: Saying that this is ‘just salt’ is a sure way to offend any Francophile. This course sea salt is often added to the top of a dish and instantly amplifies the flavour while simultaneously transporting us to the south of France
- Persillade: A dose of this classic chopped parsley and garlic mixture is the best way to French-ify any meal and make it pop! An easy yet absolutely delicious use of persillade is to toss it with some russet potatoes and roast them in the oven
- Cheese: This is such an integral part of French cuisine that it should come as no surprise that Trovaille’s fernch restaurant menu is full of fromage-filled dishes! From Chicken Cordon Bleu stuffed with comet cheese, goat’s cheese (aka fromage du chevre), and fondue, you’ll be spoiled for choice!
The French Like It Sweet
This country is world-famous for its pastries and desserts… So much so that it’s deserving of a blog post of its own! Suffice to say, that in France, ending a meal with something sweet is thought to be a good way to create balance for the palate. Because they have an affinity for chocolate and custards there’s no shortage of mouthwatering sensations that have been created.

Popular desserts include chocolate mousse, profiteroles, créme caramel, and the delectable moelleux au chocolat ( a velvety chocolate cake with an oozing ganache centre). Whoever said that ‘you can’t have your cake and eat it’ definitely wasn’t French, and we would have loved the opportunity to change his/her mind! But if it’s French food in Dubai that you’re looking for we’ve got all the flavours in store for you.
