Fit for the title of “your new local”, Roobaru aims to deliver hearty, wholesome food with a creative, regional flair. Stand-out dishes include the Manga Ceviche, an eclectic take on the traditional mango curry from Kerala, adapted into a fresh ceviche. The Sharjah Sambusa Chaat, a fried samosa paired with Chips Oman is a nod to the UAE of old. And there are amazing versions of the favourite curries, like The Smoked Chicken Tikka, to be had with the utterly delicious Truffle Kulcha. If you’re into the sweeter side of life, indulge in bespoke homemade soft serve with ever changing mash up of flavors.
