Time Out Says

Housed inside a stylish boutique, Comptoir 102 is what happens when healthy eating meets Parisian taste. Since our last visit, it’s now twice the size, with a cosy new bamboo-lined conservatory at the back. The café specialises in organic food and local produce, and recipes are primarily vegan, raw and gluten-free. Just double check before ordering if you adhere strictly to one of these diets.

Although there is an à la carte selection of juices, salads and sandwiches, the main draw is the set menu, which changes every day. Expect vegan pizza, low-calorie falafel and lots of spiralising and dehydrating. On our last visit, towards the tail end of the evening, they’d run out of all the specials. Ordinarily, we’d have a good moan. In the case of Comptoir 102, where the staff explained that they don’t want to waste food or freeze anything, we’ve got to love them more for their dedication to their cause.

So, off the à la carte menu, we ate a lot of superfood-stuffed variations on a healthy theme. All fresh, generously sized and flavoursome. If you like your food heavily seasoned, perhaps this is not for you. However, if naked flavour and traceability excite you, this place is an unmissable treat.

The bottom line As green as it gets in Dubai, with style and taste in spades.
