Food: Cabin Dubai

A relatively new opening and a new discovery for me - Cabin Dubai might just be one of the nicest spots I've whiled away a Friday afternoon in lately. 

Outdoor seating and sunshine aside, the relaxed atmosphere and decor here felt far more like an old favourite east London haunt than Dubai's usual offerings. The restaurant scene here means that despite (or maybe because of) being spoilt for choice, it's hard to find spots that feel like the sort of neighbour hang-outs that other cities take for granted.

We were shown around the interior of Cabin after arriving  - the walls are decorated with art works and there's a mini store selling art supplies, candles and jewellery. My attention was somewhat distracted by the coffee table tome in the lunch date thankfully has better conversation skills than me or just didn't spot it... We grabbed an outside table because it's winter and being outside is finally pleasant again.

After a quick browse of the menu (which changes seasonally) I obviously had to have the avocado on toast. It came beautifully presented - the portion was not the largest but it was just right for a late-ish lunch in the sunshine. 

The location is a little out of the way, in Al Barsha South behind Maisan Towers. The apartments are home to the Emirates Cabin Crew (belated wondering from me if this inspired the name of the restaurant) who I think comprised our fellow-diners and the drive out made it feel like a getaway from the city, more than making up for our longer than usual journey for food. Cabin is open from 7.30am - 7.30pm so is catered towards the breakfast / brunch / lunch crowd. For avocado fans, the breakfast menu is served all day.

  1. Oh this place looks amazing! I'm adding it to my list for the next time I come.

  2. The winter conveys a radical new face to the shopping knowledge and tremendous bliss for the shopping sweethearts as it is the time when Dubai Shopping Festival is propelled. emilianos medford
