Dubai is known for being decadent, glitzy, and lavish. It is, after all, often referred to as the “City of Gold.” It still may be surprising, though, that the emirate’s vegan fare is equally impressive. Whether you’re in search of an elegant vegan dinner, high-quality vegan groceries, or even vegan desserts delivered right to your door, Dubai doesn’t disappoint. Take a look at a few of our favorite options:
Did someone say quinoa? If you’re a fan of the ancient grain, head over to Social House in The Dubai Mall, where you can order this delish-looking quinoa biryani:
Looking for Dubai’s only 100 percent raw, vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free restaurant (yeah, it’s a thing)? Look no further than Super Natural Kitchen, where “peace starts on your plate.” Eating vegan while vacationing has never been easier—or more delicious!
Even when you’re on vacation, sometimes you just want to enjoy a meal at “home.” Thankfully, Organic Foods grocery store offers everything that you need—including vegan cheese. Enjoy a relaxing night in, courtesy of Organic Foods.
Açaí bowls are a vegan staple. Those with activated charcoal and topped with popped amaranth—that’s next-level. You can get yours at the Life ‘n One café located behind the Jumeirah Centre—or order through UberEATS.
Searching for a quaint, healthy café? Check out Comptoir 102. The restaurant offers nutritious vegan options, while the store features breathtaking furniture, home decor, and one-of-a-kind pieces. Check out some of the handmade furniture, then wind down with some delicious vegan turmeric ice cream:
Ordering takeout or getting food delivered can be difficult in a foreign country. Luckily, 77 Veggie Boutique—located in the Tiffany Tower—makes it easy with a WhatsApp number. The eatery offers a number of vegan treats, such as this delicious-looking chocolate cake:
Wholesome, fresh ingredients—that’s what you’ll find at TOM & SERG, along with a whole lot of vegan-friendly options. The salad bowls are delish, and thank goodness, the Mango Chia Pudding and Maple Granola are on the “ALL DAY” menu.
