KOA is a modern take on European and Asian fusion cuisine that aims to provide guests with an immersive experience of flavors and aromas from around the world.
The restaurant, launched by four siblings from the Bagedo family, is located at the heart of the Atelier La Vie luxury development in Jeddah, a new hotspot in the Red Sea port city. It offers an eclectic menu for lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, as well as drinks in its Firefly bar.
The bar offers a variety of mojitos, cocktails and non-alcoholic gins inspired by fireflies, including bright yellow, pure amber, warm orange and red, as well as different explosions of hues and flavors.
The signature cocktail, the blue akarui, consists of kiwi, yuzu, jalapeno, orange blossom, lime, apple juice, melon syrup, basil and aquafaba producing a light and fruity coconut flavor.
The restaurant’s spring-season a la carte menu includes its popular chicken terrine dish with confit chicken, fig jam, parmesan sand and pineapple chutney. Other options are hamachi tiradito, bibim noodles, and grilled scallops.
Main courses offer a selection of proteins, from Dover sole and turbot to chicken and beef tenderloin. The restaurant also offers mouth-watering vegetarian dishes like black truffle risotto. For dessert, three formulas are available to you, a chocolate and hazelnut delight, a raspberry and pistachio mousse or a tropical mousse.
During the holy month of Ramadan, KOA will offer a six-course menu at $80 per person.
High-end prices per person are around $150, reflecting not only the thought, effort and attention to detail that has gone into the presentation and flavors of the dishes, but also the star status. Michelin from KOA.
