Time Out Says

Jumeirah Beach Road is known for its unique, interesting eateries, and Kulture House is no exception. As you enter the converted villa on Jumeirah Beach Road there’s a warm, friendly vibe and trendy décor.

The venue is split into several spaces, and you’ll be welcomed by a coffee bar and a shop selling various trinkets (although don’t expect to bag yourself a bargain).

The dining area has huge windows, meaning the room is light and airy, and has a mix of small tables and larger sharing ones. There’s striking art on the walls and everything is cool, in an authentic, not too try hard way.

There’s also a mini gallery featuring local art, a spacious al fresco terrace and a pop-up store selling beach wear and accessories.

The venue was born from the founders’ love of travel, and it’s clear to see that care has been taken in every single detail at this place. This is even down to the door handles, which are metal giraffes, and the brightly coloured mini tiles on the floor.

The menu is equally well thought out. Kulture House is nestled next to the on-trend Comptoir 102, but although there are less vegan options on this menu, it’s not to its detriment. The menu, which admittedly isn’t cheap, is a compact yet diverse list is packed with interesting-sounding dishes including jalapeño eggs Benedict, labneh shakshuka, and burrata fig salad.

Don’t miss the avocado toast, which is incredibly prettily plated with a layer of vibrant pink beetroot hummus, an arty avocado flower plus a scattering of seeds and rocket. Happily it tastes just as good as it looks, with perfectly poached eggs and the punchy hummus lifting the rich and creamy avo.

The honey-glazed barbecue chicken bowl is fantastic too, with tender, sweet and smoky chicken pieces pairing with crunchy onions and filling chickpeas. It’s a splendid mishmash of flavours leading to classic dish with a Middle Eastern twist.

If you have a sweet-tooth, finish your meal off with a serving of the signature deep fried Oreos – but beware it’s a huge portion and good to share. The doughnut/biscuit hybrid is interesting, super-sweet and very filling.

This café is excellent and whether you’re in the area or not you should definitely visit.
