Photos: Top Nigerian chef in Dubai, Azu Ani, patronized by the royals gets UAE Gold Visa Card

Nigeria-born, London-raised Izu Ani is often referred to as “Dubai’s chef”, thanks to the number of projects he always seems to have on hand.
Just last month, for example, Ani added not one but two new restaurants, Fika in Jumeirah Beach Hotel and Aya in City Walk, to his portfolio. Both have since been patronised by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed, Crown Prince of Dubai, who’s also been spotted at Ani’s DIFC restaurant Gaia and Emirates Golf Club eatery Carine (named after Ani’s wife). 
The ever-candid Ani, who also heads Izu Brasserie & Bakery and The Lighthouse, admits that launching two restaurants almost simultaneously wasn’t exactly the plan. The renowned Dubai chef has just been awarded a UAE Gold Card Visa for his dedication to Dubai’s culinary landscape. Chef Izu who counts Dubai’s Crown Prince as a fan has restaurants including DIFC’s GAIA in partnership with Evgeny Kuzin, Carine, The Lighthouse, Izu Brasserie & Bakery to his name. 
The UAE Gold Card Visa was introduced in 2019 and grants permanent residency to exceptional members of the community.

Dubai is “a destination that allows us to grow”

 

I feel honoured and proud to have been recognised with the UAE Gold Card Visa. To me, Dubai is not a transient place, it is somewhere that we can call home, rather than just pass through. It is a destination that allows us to grow

 

Chef Izu adds that Dubai has given him the opportunity to create and to build his dream into reality

 

When we invest in ourselves, in our passions and projects, we plant the seeds of development. Seeds that can grow into cities, where we can spread our roots. With hard work comes reward and recognition, and it is so inspiring to live in a place where we can achieve our goals. Dubai enables us to see the world with the eyes of a child, to explore and build our dreams into our realities, and for that I will always be grateful.

 
Congratulations Azu!!!!!
