Time Out Says

Ever wanted to visit Bali without leaving Dubai? Head over to Life’n One. Hidden away just off Jumeirah Beach Road you’ll find a vegan café that’ll have you shouting from the rooftops to all your plant-based pals.

Life’n One is a vegan, dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free, GMO-free and cane sugar-free café with a menu that’ll have you wondering how they’ve done it.

To start we opt for the sharing is caring platter. It’s loaded with tortillas, celery, cucumber and a choice of three dips. We can’t recommend the tzatziki enough, also worth a mention is the black hummus. Detoxifying activated charcoal is mixed in with chickpeas, garlic, lemon and sesame tahini – and the result is a dark twist on the traditional Middle Eastern dip. It’s a hit.

We recommend turning up here hungry as portions are large. The eggless omelette is the size of a large plate and is packed full of ingredients and flavour.

The “unbeatable vurger” however, is a bold claim, which it doesn’t fulfill. In a city with some fantastic options, this feels dated and uninspired.

You can enjoy your meal outside in cooler weather, with low wooden tables and big cushions on the floor, or there are tables and chairs in a covered area at the back of the garden.

It can be hard to feel like you’re out of the hustle and bustle of the city but at Life’n One you’ll be transported a zen garden with not a care in the world.

With tasty free-from dishes, this spot caters for specific diets exceptionally well.
