Time Out Says

Just off Sheikh Zayed Road, budget Indian eatery Kulcha King is a good place to stop if you’re looking for a quick bite to eat that won’t break the bank.

But what exactly is a kulcha? It’s a flatbread – a bit similar to a naan – stuffed to the brim with a filling of your choice (think potatoes, onions, paneer etc.) and slathered in melting butter. Caught your interest yet?

They’re tasty and also so filling that you’ll struggle to eat anything else for hours. But, if you’re still hungry, each one comes with a side of tasty chickpea curry in a little bowl.

While kulcha is a key item here, the menu also features curries and kebabs, which can be tailored to your taste, whether you like the heat strong or a little bit more mild.

The paneer korma is a particularly popular choice for fans of Indian food who aren’t so keen on spice and love a hearty veggie dish.

To end the meal, a large, delicious glass of mango yoghurt makes for the perfect thirst-quencher, while traditional sweet and salted flavours are also on offer.

Or you might prefer to try some of the Indian desserts such as the halwa – a delicious combination of grated carrots, nuts, milk, sugar, ghee and simmered milk cooked over a fire.

That is if you’re not already completely full from the enormous gooey kulcha.
