Pret A Manger opening in Dubai Mall

Sandwich chain from the UK to open first Dubai shop

There’s massive news for sandwich fans – Pret A Manger is opening in The Dubai Mall.

The popular café chain, famous for its soups, sandwiches, cakes and coffees, is opening next week (Thursday February 21) and if it’s anything like its counterparts, it’s set to be a hit.

There’s already a branch in Dubai International Airport Terminal 1, and now Downtown dwellers, office workers and weary shoppers will be able to get their lunches, snacks and more from this brand-new outlet.

Pret A Manger was set up in 1986, with a mission to create “handmade, natural food”, with all dishes prepared daily in the kitchen. Now there are more than 400 stores worldwide, with outlets in the UK, the US, Hong Kong and Singapore. The team says is serves more than 30,000 customers daily, and it’s not hard to see why.

Priding itself on fresh, additive-free produce, the brand uses natural ingredients for tasty, wholesome food. Plus, the team of baristas whip up a mean coffee.

Faves from the Time Out Dubai team include the chicken avocado sandwiches, tuna Niçoise salad and the tasty falafel wrap. Fancy a treat? Nibble on a freshly baked croissant or indulge in a slice of that famous carrot cake. We hope these delicious items have made the cut for the menu for the new Dubai Mall branch.

This will be the fourth new restaurant to open at The Dubai Mall this year, alongside Operation: Falafel and a new flagship branch of wagamama. World-famous Italian bakery Cova is also due to open later this month.

That’s your lunch breaks sorted.
