Dubai Food Diaries’ TOP JLT Dishes Under AED 20
Jen Sahi, JLT resident and award-winning food blogger rounds up her favourite JLT bargains
Jen Sahi, who’s behind the award-winning Dubai Food Diaries blog, says she has eaten over 30,000 meals, travelled to over 70 countries and has lived in 6, including the USA, UK, Japan, Australia and India. Right now, she lives in JLT, which, as we all now, is a veritable haven for foodies and probably Dubai’s no. 1 foodie neighbourhood.
With everyone trying to save a buck these days, Jen has rounded up seven of her favourite dishes from JLT restaurants that are under AED 20:
O’Kheema Pao from O’Pao (AED 19) – Karama’s favourite pao shop has set up shop in cluster N, serving up super-affordable, Indian-inspired sandwiches on soft Indian buns and potato rolls.
Chicken Tenders from Pickl (AED 20) – The burger joint that first introduced Dubai to Nashville Hot Chicken still prevails with its crunchy, meaty chicken strips that come in 4 heat levels.
Thai Chicken Skewers from Streetery (AED 18) – Dubai’s first Asian food hall sells reasonably priced street food on a stick (like chicken, squid and prawns) that makes you feel like you’re eating at a hawker centre.
Tawouk Wrap Sandwich from Beirut Bites (AED 20) – For a filling and pocket-friendly meal, you can’t go wrong with a Tawouk Wrap from Beirut Bites. Order direct for 40% off your first order!
Es Teler (Avocado Jackfruit Milk Drink) from Betawi (AED 20) – JLT’s original Indonesian café could be considered adventurous by some, but it’s a great alternative to standard Asian fare with its more exotic flavours.
Eggs Kejriwal from Raju Omlet (AED 19.75) – A humble eatery that’s been featured in Harvard Business Review and offers affordable egg dishes in many styles, like this Mumbai preparation with mushrooms, cheese and white sauce.
