Four vegan iftars in Dubai to try
Bounty Beets

If you’re vegan and looking for a healthy yet interesting iftar, there are plenty of options around the city. Whether you’re after vegan mezze or a large salad buffet there’s plenty to cater for plant-based diners.

We’ve rounded up five of the best vegan options with which to break your fast.

Bounty Beets
This restaurant is offering up an alternative menu with gluten-free and vegan-friendly options for iftar.

For Dhs120, guests at Bounty Beets can enjoy a four-course meal featuring everything from vegan-friendly mezze to plant-based soups, salads and cauliflower tacos.

All of the dishes aim to offer nutritional value that will cleanse the body and mind.

The restaurant is also a great spot for Instagram fans – with a picturesque setting and a beautiful outdoor terrace.

Common Grounds
This Ramadan, the chefs at Common Grounds in Mall of the Emirates have created a special plant-based iftar menu featuring an array of wholesome and sustainable dishes. Expect grilled cheese sandwiches made using vegan mozzarella, miso-roasted aubergine with tahini, sushi rolls, ‘boneless buffalo wings’ (AKA barbecued cauliflower), tempura ‘fish’ tacos made with heart of palm, a black bean and sesame burger and a vegan omelette created with Portobello mushrooms. The vegan-friendly menu won’t break the bank either with dishes coming in at an average of Dhs40 to Dhs55.

Little Erth by Nabz&G (formerly known as Urth by Nabz&G) is serving up some traditional and nutritious Middle Eastern fare this Ramadan with a special plant-based iftar menu.

This healthy eatery in JLT has “veganised” some Middle Eastern favourites and even the fussiest of diners won’t be left disappointed as there’s plenty of choices per course. For Dhs89 the pocket-friendly five-course iftar consists of a soup, salad, appetiser, main course and dessert. Dishes include carrot and mint, lentil and celery, butternut squash or pea and mint soup, fattoush or tabbouleh salad, vegan fattet hummus or vegan kibbeh. There are also nine different vegan main course options.
