7. Bounty Beets

From vegan tacos, a wholesome atmosphere, more vegan options not a lot of Dubai restaurants have- Bounty Beets is that relaxing spot that fills your tummy, mind and soul. Enjoy the greenery of its venue, loads of dishes like an alfredo vegan pasta and just how Instagrammable this spot is.

6. Urthh Cafe

People swear by the servings and preparation that go into each dish served by Urthh Cafe, this one’s also a popular go-to for tea and dessert lovers. But since not a lot of restaurants in Dubai go completely vegan with all dishes and drinks, be sure to check out the menu for extensive options.

Where? City Walk

5. The Flipside Restobar

For plant-based alternatives to meat that is just as juicy and tasteful,  The Flipside Restobar’s your go-to.

This is reportedly one of the first restaurants in Dubai that serve only alternative meat and veggies in a variety of cuisines and by golly- it is an experience, for sure.

If you live near Garhoud, make sure you pass by Century Village to get to try the incredible plant-based options at this venue. Oh, and did we mention the resto even has an expert dietician on board, whom you can talk to between 9 am-1 pm for some health advice. Neat.

4. Bloom Vegan Kitchen

Another one for 100% vegan food is no other than Bloom Vegan Kitchen, although it is delivery-only for now, a lot of residents in Dubai hope for a venue to be set-up soon.

This place has everything another restaurant would, except you need not worry for specific ingredients that might be non-vegan. Pizza, pasta, tacos, whatever it is- they have it. Let the picture below speak for itself.

Lovin Dubai writer Casey swears by its filling bowls that are ‘perfect for winter weather’, and you can finish off with a choco mousse that tastes delicious minus the guilt.
