With so many options for outdoor activities during this chilly season, going to eat at some new restaurant is probably not very high up on your list. But hear us out, our Weekend Warrior has scouted a new dining destination that might make it onto your agenda.
When you hear the word roller coaster restaurant, what image comes to mind. It probably isn’t healthy, or particularly inviting, to be eating while being thrown out in the air. No, that’s not how it works.
Rogo’s, the roller coaster-inspired dining venue at the newly-opened Yas Mall in the capital, is a one-of-a-kind concept with a network of 30 individual roller coaster tracks that loop, spiral and spin in and around diners to deliver an exciting menu of international comfort food directly to each table.
“Each table has its own individually designed roller coaster track and a unique silent delivery system that thrills diners as they get to watch their food make a gravity-defying 360-degree journey to their table. Our state-of-the-art technology makes dining fun as it transports both cold and hot food and drinks along the multi-spiral, double loop and tornado tracks,” explained Jessica Wadih Al-Absi, Chairman & CEO of restaurant owner Group JWA.
As well as its hi-tech high-flying food delivery system, the 378-seat restaurant provides guests with a fully integrated ordering system in the form of individual handheld tablets that allow them to order from the carefully crafted menu of delicious specialties.
The extensive menu covers all the culinary bases with dishes from the Americas to Europe and Asia. Signature dishes range from an Asparagus and Sweet Pea Risotto, topped with a Crispy Poached Egg and Hollandaise Sauce, to the DIY ROGO’S Tornado Burger, which offers a choice of 13 different toppings and a multitude of combinations. Those with a sweet tooth can enjoy the Upside-Down New York style Warm-Baked Cheesecake or the Sticky Date Pudding with Salted Caramel Ice Cream.
“Another unique element to the ROGO’S experience is the way our food is served. Each dish is presented in individual pots, making it a real journey of discovery from start to finish, and one that we know will resonate with children and fun-loving adults alike; because who doesn’t enjoy eating straight out of the pot?” noted Al-Absi.
