The Best Places to Go in Dubai with Friends This World Food Day

Here in Dubai, we’re lucky to have access to some beautiful, nutritious food. To help you (and your friends) make the most of it, we’ve rounded up some of the city’s top eateries that you need to check out. Planning to go solo? Exploring your city through food is a great way to meet people in Dubai. So, how will you celebrate World Food Day?


This gourmet deli has you covered for every meal, but all-day breakfast options are really where it’s at – the zaatar Turkish eggs and saffron shakshuka are our picks. 

The team there works hard to push for organic and free-range ingredients in their recipes. Plus, paleo, wheat-free and vegan options are available, so anyone with dietary restrictions doesn’t have to miss out. 

Stay for a quick meal or chill out for a few hours, and don’t forget to share your pictures with the brunch tag afterwards. 


The RAW Coffee Company prioritise keeping their business ethical. They work closely with their farmers to ensure they’re treated fairly, and the result is a range of coffee which not only tastes great but does a bit of good for the planet. 

If you want to find friends in Dubai to go along with, the ASKWHO coffee club frequents RAW. Explore the tag in the app and see who’s up for grabbing a cup.


As far as cultural things to do in Dubai go, authentic Emirati food is a pretty tasty option. Combining traditional dishes with an upscale vibe, Aseelah has something for everyone. 

Get some inspiration from the culture tag in the app to plan an enriching day out. Then, stop by for the dinner buffet and sample some impressive eats from the Middle East and beyond.


Award-winning Lowe is about as sustainable as it gets. Fire-cooked food made with a nose-to-tail ethos, in a gorgeously decorated restaurant? Check, check, and check. 

If you’re big on being eco-friendly, it’s also the perfect place to meet people in Dubai who are also looking out for the environment. Keep an eye out for their next Waste NOT series, where the entire menu is made from would-be food scraps.

Not to your taste?

Our community is always on the lookout for new recommendations – and food spots are no exception. Whether you know any great hidden restaurants or have some must-attend foodie events in Dubai to share, we’d love to know.
