The trendy neighbourhood of Jumeirah Lakes Towers showcases the best of Dubai's diverse culinary scene with everything from exotic fare to well-loved comfort food.
A casual but cosy ramen joint
This walk-in ramen bar in the heart of JLT has proved to be exceedingly popular with Dubai’s foodies since it first opened its doors back in 2018. Inside, the eatery is stripped back, with plain concrete walls and a scattering of wooden tables. Even the menu is simple, with just a handful of ramen options to choose from, but they are all hearty, wholesome and packed with fresh ingredients.
This popular taco spot was once a taco truck that enjoyed so much success that the owners decided to find a more permanent space, and set up shop in the foodie neighbourhood of Jumeirah Lakes Towers. They serve up authentic, tasty tacos with delicious fillings. Best of all? Everything is made fresh, from the corn tortillas to the slow-cooked beef.
This Dubai-based pizzeria makes some of the city’s best-loved pizzas, growing its tribe of loyal customers thanks to their commitment to using high-quality local ingredients. Diners can expect to find all the usual varieties, from Hawaiian to pepperoni, but there are also some more inventive creations such as the Spudnik, which is topped with roasted potatoes, chicken and gorgonzola.
Homegrown favourite Pickl took Dubai’s burger game to new heights when it burst on to the local scene. With colossal patties and piles of toppings, this spot has since invaded the mainstream and laid down a benchmark for grillers citywide. You have to try their chicken sando with fresh fried chicken, dill pickles and a closely guarded 'comeback sauce'.
Tucked away in Dubai’s Jumeirah Lakes Towers district is Greek-owned Mythos Kouzina and Grill, an authentic taverna featuring rustic-style furniture and Cycladic design elements. Here you’ll find hearty home-style dishes – including popular favourites such as gyros and souvlaki – and a warm, welcoming vibe that will make you feel right at home.
