Where to Grab a Healthy Morning Meal in the Mall
Our favourite places for a healthy breakfast in Dubai
We are always on the hunt for healthy dining out spots, especially when it comes to the most important meal of the day. Follow our lead and start your morning on a high note with a bite at L’Eto, a much-loved London import serving up Mediterranean cuisine in a casual setting. Ranging from colourful acai bowls to gluten-free pancakes, poached eggs with spinach and antioxidant-loaded juices, breakfast plates come piled with all of the nutritious goodness to set you up for the day ahead.
Café Bateel is another frequent hit for a light and healthy meal in the morning. The broad breakfast menu includes lots of nutritious highlights, such as organic granola, egg white omelettes and chunky avocado toast.
Designer Pizza? Only In Dubai…
Take a break from shopping to enjoy a taste of Italy in an elegant setting
Experience the true taste of luxury with a decadent bite at Emporio Armani Caffè.
While the menu is brimming with all the Italian classics, including breakfast dishes, antipasti, paninis, pastas and one of the best veal Milanese in town, the real draw is the chef’s expertly hand-crafted pizzas.
Topped with fresh mozzarella, rocket leaves, bresaola and a dusting of Parmesan cheese, the house specialty Emporio Armani Pizza will not disappoint even the most discerning pie-lover, while the even more decadent Diavola comes loaded with cheese, cherry tomatoes, chili flakes, fennel seeds and beef salami.
A Delicious Après Ski Spot to Try in Dubai
Enjoy a delicious feast with the best views of Ski Dubai
Who needs a trip to the Alps when you can get a piece of the action at Ski Dubai’s winter wonderland in the desert? After a few hours on the slopes, kick back at North 28 and refuel on hearty plates of buttery grilled meats, hot dogs, creamy pastas and seafood chowder.
Cap off your feast with a well-deserved cup of hot chocolate while you soak up views of the snow-laden ski park and its adorable resident penguins.
How To: Host a Last-Minute Dinner Party At Home
• Pulling off a formal dinner when you’re up against the clock is no easy feat, so we say forgo the fussy table settings and take a more casual approach. To set a relaxed vibe, arrange a drinks station on a bar cart and place cutlery in mason jars in the middle of the table for guests to help themselves.
• Large family-style sharing platters often work best when it comes to impromptu dinner parties. Look to one-pot recipes such as casseroles or stews that will not only require less washing-up, but can also simmer away while you mingle with guests.
• If you’re really strapped for time, raid your freezer and heat up a pre-made frozen lasagna or spaghetti bolognaise – two classic comfort dishes that will go down a treat with guests of all ages. Simply add freshly grated Parmesan and a scatter of basil leaves to cheat a freshly made meal.
• Even if you have forgotten the flowers, burnt the bolognaise or run out of ice, the right ambiance can make a success out of any soirée. The quickest way to set the right tone is through great music and plenty of candles to illuminate a room.
