This November 1st is World Vegan Day, and Repeat, a leading F&B app, has curated a list of four exciting restaurants across Dubai to try out, all with rewards available on the app today.
Vegan dining has changed significantly over the last 10 years, with many of us choosing more conscious eating habits. Restaurants have noticed this change in attitude and followed suit, no longer does vegan translate as boring; fast food restaurants are offering up vegan alternatives, and plant-based choices are an exciting and intriguing new option for many of us when dining out. Dubai has always been a front-runner for unique and innovative cuisine, and vegan dining is no different. Repeat has put together a list of a few popular plant-based restaurant recommendations for some of the best vegan food in the city that are worth a visit this November 1st and beyond.
Our first recommendation is Freshii, a fresh-food eatery with a green mission and a delicious, expansive menu. Based in Media City, Karama and Business Bay, Freshii’s brand identity is based on affordable and convenient healthy food, inspired by New York’s fresh-food delis. The menu is based on 6 key elements – breakfast, salad, bowls, wraps, soup, and juices. The breakfasts are varied and extremely tempting, perfect for a before-work pick me up, some options include a banana, mango and strawberry Cali smoothie bowl, chai pudding, energii protein bites and the fiesta classic wrap.
The salads, bowls and wraps are substantial, hearty, and incredibly satisfying, with options for vegans and carnivores alike. The soups are not your average tomato, with options ranging from spicy lemongrass soup to superfood soup. Finish it all off with a fresh juice or smoothie, ideal for those days when you need a detox, or fancy something filling and good for you. With the Repeat app, the more times you order from Freshii, the higher the discount. Specifically available at the Media City Branch, up to 20% reward is available via Repeat.
Our second recommendation is a firm favourite for vegan restaurants in Dubai, Little Erth by Nabz&G. Located at Cluster J, JLT, Little Erth is an innovative, plant-based restaurant that has rapidly grown in popularity and cult-like status. Founded in 2017, Little Erth has won awards for Best Vegan Restaurant in Dubai (Zomato Users Choice Awards 2018) and Best Healthy Restaurant in JLT (2019), their goal is to promote the fact that healthy food can be inexpensive, packed with flavour and visually beautiful.
All of their meals are prepared from scratch, with only fresh, quality ingredients free from preservatives; dishes include vegan Mac n Cheese, Vegan Shawarma, and their iconic sharer Nachos. They offer salads, bowls, sharers, mains, soups and desserts – and there is something for everyone. Available to order and dine in, Little Erth at JLT is available today on the Repeat App, with up to 30% off as a loyalty reward.
The Cycle Bistro, Dubai’s first Paleo restaurant, is the third of our recommendations for World Vegan Day and beyond. Describing themselves as the ultimate health food restaurant, The Cycle Bistro follows the Paleo ethos of no sugar, dairy or gluten, and therefore no preservatives or additives as well as featuring vegan options; however, that doesn’t make the menu options any less exciting!
The dine-in menu has been developed by health professionals, nutritionists, and industry gurus, and features international dishes ranging from substantial breakfasts to mains including butternut gnocchi, almond and cauliflower base pizzas and a range of burgers and sandwiches. The Cycle Bistro also has options for kids and café treats like cakes and fitness cocktails. Located at Motor City and Jumeirah in the Cycle Hub, the interiors are relaxed and friendly, always busy with visors to both the café and the bike shop adjacent. Available via the Repeat app at both locations, this super healthy, charming spot has up to 20% off.
Our final recommendation for a top vegan restaurant in Dubai, available on the Repeat App is Just Vegan, a bright, airy restaurant located at Jumeriah. Committed to using local, sustainable, and organic ingredients, Just Vegan serves up hearty dishes packed with flavour in a relaxed setting. Awarded the 2022 Best Plant-Based Restaurant by the Deliveroo Restaurant Awards, and the 2022 Best Sustainable Restaurant by the Lux Awards, Just Vegan also offers an unlimited weekend brunch, set menu and breakfast deal.
Inspired by nature and sustainability, dishes include super smoothie bowls, all-day breakfasts, soup, salads, small bites, burgers, pizzas, pasta and wraps. The extensive menu means there is something for everyone, and every dish is packed with goodness and flavour.
