Without a doubt, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. The truth is, there isn't a typical breakfast in Dubai but whether it's eggs benedict, waffles or shakshuka, meeting friends for breakfast is all part of the lifestyle here. When it comes to breakfast, nobody does it better than Dubai.
Cereal Killer Cafe
After its first venue in Shoreditch in London, Cereal Killer Cafe opened a joint in Dubai, and proved that everyone still loves retro cereal. From childhood favourites like Cap'n Crunch to rare cereals such as Coffee Crisp, Cereal Killer will get your sweet tooth tingling. However, it isn't just as simple as dunking your spoon into cereal and milk (although it can be if you like). Cereal Killer also serves a number of "Cereal Cocktails", which mix cereals with other sweet treats such as Nutella, Marshmallow Fluff and Rolos. You also have a choice of strawberry, banana or chocolate milk. If you wish you were born in the '80s or miss digging your hand into the cereal packet for that novelty toy, you might want to head to Cereal Killer.
Under 500 take their namesake seriously. All of their dishes come in at under 500 calories, making it a great choice for those on a diet or trying to eat healthier. Don't be fooled into thinking that they only serve small portions or salad, because there is a great deal of dishes at Under 500 which are rich in protein and healthy fats, but also allow you to keep an eye on the calorie content. For instance, their Steak and Eggs breakfast is far from what you'd expect for a low-calorie meal, and if you add a Lean Green juice, you've already started your day on a high.
Cafe Bateel promises to deliver Mediterranean cuisine with Arab hospitality, and although we're not sure whether Eggs Benedict is a Mediterranean dish, we're ready to let it slide because the choice for breakfast at Cafe Bateel is incredible. If you fancy some simple eggs, go with the Bateel breakfast, which is served with a pastry, jams and juice of your choice. They also serve a Levant breakfast of shakshuka or a Levant plate consisting of grilled halloumi, olives, mint, tomatoes, cucumber and Umbrian foul (a hearty dish made from fava and garbanzo beans). Bateel is popular, so if you're planning to go, ensure you book ahead.
