Time Out Says

From the introduction of calorie-conscious menus at fine-dining restaurants to the arrival of cafés specialising in steamed-only cuisine, Dubai’s love affair with healthy eating has never been stronger.

Under 500, in JLT’s Cluster Y, is another newcomer to the scene, and a welcome arrival among those who frequent the neighbourhood’s many (many) yoga, Pilates and fitness studios. While we can’t scientifically verify that every dish really does stick to its promised count of 500 calories or fewer, the menu certainly talks a good game. The colourful, veggie-packed dishes coming out of the kitchen also seem to fit the bill.

Portions may be smaller than what you’re expecting (this place is not for the diet-averse). The egg quinoa tabbouleh from the all-day breakfast menu boasts all the flavours of the Levantine original, but with a double dose of protein that’s filling enough for you not to miss the rest of a mezze platter.

From the mains, the chicken lettuce tacos do a good enough impression of a Mexican fajita that you won’t miss the tortilla.

If you fancy rounding off with a dessert from the “cheat day” options, we promise we won’t tell your trainer.

The bottom line
Light, fresh and colourful yogi-friendly food.
