Shout out to JLT for all the up-and-coming foodie spots that prove Dubai is not all about fancy fine-dining, but good fresh food!
The only real downside, where businesses are concerned, is trying to make a noise and stand out from the crowd, when there are so many great spots to choose from.
But Lovin are lucky enough to have an office in JLT, so it’s our duty to try them all and bring you the best, and here we’ve found an authentic Hawaiian gem…
Introducing Malolo Poke in Cluster C, JLT
The menu is short and precise – they keep it straighforward
You’re going there for poke bowls and signature Hawaiiian smoothies. Simples.
(Poke bowls are a Hawaiian dish that are ALLLLL the rage right now)
Traditionally served with fish, but you can get veggie ones too. Pick a base of white rice, quinoa, wakame, or kale, add a protein (fish or chicken), sauce, lots of tasty add-ons and then you’re good to go.
Or, Malolo has its own signature selection of poke bowls
Prices start from AED50 for a small bowl, AED60 for medium, AED70 for large.
And epic smoothies
Smoothies cost you AED17
The spot is small and functional with light streaming through the windows
A perfect place to visit for lunch this summer, when you WISH you could be sitting outside, but Malolo can be the next best thing
