Over the last couple of years, Dubai’s health scene has been giving birth to a new wellness concept almost every month. In such a scenario it’s become almost impossible to stick to your pre-conceived notions about healthy food.
Even the once vegan-food skeptics have turned a corner as the city’s new crop of animal product-free restaurants have forced us all to accept this one simple fact: vegan food can be just as delicious.
We’re not kidding! Visit any of the vegan restaurants in Dubai and you’ll find bowls bursting with goodness to burgers, lasagnas, and even vegan ice cream. Here is our pick of Dubai’s top vegan restaurants:
This burger restaurant chain from New York isn’t just for carnivores! With two delicious vegan burgers on the menu, this is your place to satisfy your vegan burger cravings in the city. Its signature dish – the vegan and gluten-free Farmstead – is made of sweet potatoes, quinoa, alfalfa, romaine, tomatoes, hummus and lemon dressing wrapped in a collard green leaf. Drooling yet?
The other burger, called The Guadalupe, is a rice and black bean patty with guacamole pickle jalapeno, tomatoes and alfalfa with a multi-grain bun.
Pinza has been popping up at events all over Dubai and they do vegan pizzas!! This restaurant makes hands-down, the best vegan pizza in Dubai. Period.
Take a bite of its cheese-less El Padrino pizza, customized with vegan cheese, smoked vegan sausages, mushrooms, basil and chili flakes on top – you will be dreaming of a second serving as soon as you finish it. Made from a crunchy dough base made up of 80 per cent water and 20 per cent flour, Pinza’s pizzas are healthy, light and delicious.
