The past year has seen Dubai become increasingly vegan-friendly, and now Ronda Locatelli is only cementing that statement with the city’s biggest meat-free menu yet.

Atlantis The Palm’s Italian restaurant has launched a brand-new vegan menu featuring more than 40 different dishes to choose from, making it “the largest offering from a standalone non-vegan restaurant in the city”.

The menu was officially launched earlier this month by Michelin-starred chef Giorgio Locatelli and Ronda Locatelli’s chef de cuisine, Salvo Sardo, and it offers everything including salads, pizza, pasta and desserts.

For a little taste of what’s on offer, some plant-based starters include insalata estiva, a summer mixed vegetable salad and insalata di spinaci, with baby spinach, pomegranate dressing and vegan cheese with walnuts.

In need of a pizza? The menu also features eight different varieties of vegan-friendly pizzas, including the quattro stragioni with vegan mozzarella, black olives, mushrooms, artichoke and aubergine, along with the classic margherita.

As for the spaghetti fans, tuck in to the spaghetti with a tangy tomato sauce, black olives, cherry tomatoes and capers, or for something a little spicier, there will be the penne arabiata.

Finally, vegans with a sweet-tooth can enjoy the sfera di cioccolato, a chocolate sphere with coconut ice cream, mixed berries and hot raspberry sauce, along with rich vegan chocolate cake, a selection of sorbet and the intriguing mousse al cioccolato – an avocado chocolate mousse.

There are many more dishes to eat, and with the menu officially launched, you can try them all for yourself right now.

Looking for more vegan-friendly places around the city? Here’s a list of Dubai’s best vegan restaurants  to try, including Bareburger, Wild & The Moon and many more.

If you’re on the meat-free diet and feel left out at brunch, JBR’s Tr!beca offers a brunch with a plant-based menu that includes starters, burgers and desserts.

Being a vegan in Dubai has never been tastier.
Open Sat-Tue noon-4.30pm and 6pm-10.30pm; Thu-Fri noon-4.30pm and 6pm-11pm. Atlantis, The Palm, (04 426 2626).
