Salfatna ( Our Story )
Not so long ago in the capital city of the UAE, Abu Dhabi a young Emarati named Shaikha Al Kaabi grew up with a passion for her counry’s cuisine, culture and traditions.
Flavors of the authentic Emarati food kept her curious about the different recipes and ingredients used to prepare them. She carried on embracing her childhood memories, which is why in 2011 she had an idea of opening the first Emarati restaurant as a way to expose more people to the unique flavors and culture of the UAE.
To create a contemporary setting she gathered various Emarati elements and modernized them. In June 2015 her dream came true, the restaurant was finally open for business.
She named the restaurant Meylas, which is a local expression that means majlis or a place that gathers people. The name reflects the idea of gathering family and friends in a warm and welcoming setting.
