If, like Ahlam (the beautiful blogger behind Straight Up Bananas), you have never tried Emirati cuisine, we think it’s about time that this changes! After having the pleasure of visiting Logma in Dubai’s BOXPARK to sample some of its delicious menu items, we are all now hooked. Born out of the desire to share the rich Emirati and Khaleeji cuisine, this casual dining spot has taken Emirati concepts and given them a contemporary twist.
So, what to choose at Logma?
One dish not to be missed includes the famous, and very popular, Logma Fries – seasoned with Khaleeji spice and topped with crisp, deep-fried parsley, basil and a drizzle of chili oil. If you can’t quite decide what to have, don’t just stick to one Main Menu Item – instead, open up your ENTERTAINER App, and take advantage of the 2 for 1 offers available!
A fan of other Middle Eastern cuisine? Well that’s also perfect, as below we have listed some of our other favourite restaurants we think you should give a go. They’re all hidden gems, so we know you’ll have fun exploring the new locations.
Location: Umm Suqeim 1
Similar to Logma, Local Bites Café offers indulgent Emirati treats, with a modern spin. Delivering moist chababs, khameer sandwiches and fluffy lugaimat, this lovely little eatery boasts the fact that each dish has a story to tell. Save AED 40 when dining on Main Menu Items there with your ENTERTAINER.
Location: Jumeirah 2
Enjoy serene panoramic views of the fishing harbour while dining on the fabulous flavours of grilled meat and classic mezze at this Lebanese eatery. Beautifully decorated with warm and welcoming staff, this one is an all-rounder.
Before being transformed into a casual dining restaurant, Studio Masr was a leading Egyptian movie-production studio that produced world-class films throughout the Middle East during the 1930s, 40s and 50s. As a result, its design includes an essence of old Egyptian movies – and the food is pretty amazing, too!
Location: Sheikh Zayed Road
Renowned for its Syrian home-cooked style dishes, when visiting Diwan Al Muhanna, you not only get to sample some of the delightful Levantine specialities, but you also have the opportunity to receive one Main Course for free with your ENTERTAINER, saving you AED 50. The complimentary fresh bread and dips are a nice touch, too.
Location: Dubai Festival City & Jumeirah Beach Road
Have you ever wondered where you can get your hands on an authentic Iskender kebab, Turkey’s most popular dish? Cooked on a charcoal grill, Sultan Baba Iskender’s delicacy will transport you to the Ottoman kitchen culture. Before tucking in, try out a range of their pitas, starters, salads and doners too.
Wherever you choose to dine, don’t forget to use your ENTERTAINER at all locations above for 2 for 1 offer on Main Courses. If you’re also looking for brunches to explore in the near future, make sure you check out some of our current favourites, too.
