Little Erth by Nabz&G

Seek out the healthy and affordable at Little Erth by Nabz&G at Jumeirah Lakes Towers, where the menu is 90% vegan with a smattering of pescatarian choices. The restaurant challenges the misconception that healthy food is bland and expensive, offering up dishes that are delightfully delicious. In addition to plenty of vegan options, Little Erth has gluten-, wheat- and dairy-free substitutes. Among Little Erth’s signature dishes is the Buddha Burger which is made from quinoa, red kidney beans and sweet potatoes, and the Zesty Spaghetti made from raw zucchini pasta and kefir lemongrass cashew cream.

Wild & the Moon

Starting out life in Dubai within Alserkal Avenue, Wild & the Moon is now dotted across the emirate with additional branches in DIFC and Downtown Dubai. As its core concept, Wild & the Moon believes that food should be good for you and the planet, as well as delicious. The ingredients used for the dishes are local where possible and ethically sourced. That means you can indulge in cold-pressed juices, smoothies, salads, soups, desserts and snacks that are free from refined sugar, additives, chemicals, GMOs, gluten and dairy. All recipes have been designed by raw vegan experts, with the aim of showcasing the best that nature can offer.

SEVA

With a menu that is 100% vegan and tucked away in a serene garden is SEVA Table. You can sit outdoors in the lush garden in cooler months, or escape to an air-conditioned area during the summer. The cafe offers a variety of options including the eggless omelette, the acai bowl and the ‘unbeatable vurger’ – where flavours have been created using raw vegetables, flowers, fruits, herbs, roots, nuts and seeds and even seaweed. The cafe is just one part of the space, which also offers a wellness centre and a store. The team behind the food also hosts regular yoga classes, and listen to mantras when cooking to infuse everything with the ‘being-well’ frequency.

Bounty Beets

With a menu that is 70% vegan, Bounty Beets is a welcome addition to the plant-based block. A venue which is Instagrammable as well as healthy, the restaurant is also committed to the community and the environment: it tries to source as much as it can from local and/or organic sources, and also recycles food waste through an on-site composter. In addition to the vegan offerings (from the açaí berry power bowl through to the organic black bean vurger), the restaurant hosts a guilt-free ladies’ night every Tuesday called Up Beet, which includes all-you-can-eat from the 100% gluten-free and Up Beet menu.

The restaurant’s menus are organic, GMO-free, and with no artificial flavourings or colourings. Gluten-free options are also on the menu too and go beyond conventional salads and raw items. The top vegan dishes to try include omelettes and cheese sticks, the meat alternative 'chicken' stir-fried noodles and ‘level up’ burger.
