S'wich make sure their food passes health tests with flying colours. It's all antibiotic-free, high protein and low fat – making it the perfect fuel for a midday pit-stop. This top-choice vegetarian shawarma is made with a white wrap and packed with Portobello mushroom, cubes of salty feta cheese, spring onions, oregano, and finished off with plenty of tzatziki.

Where: S'wich Gourmet Shawarmas, Marina View Tower

2. The Farmer, Poke Poke Dubai

Poké bowls are one of the hottest food trends of 2017 – made with plenty of vegetables, sushi-style raw food, and served on a bed of rice, what's not to love? Poke Poke's bowls are Emirati through and through, offering up locally sourced gluten-free food you can trust. Build your own, or stick to a signature dish. Our favourite is the Farmer – made with organic cooked chicken, yuzu ponzu sauce, baby tomatoes, cucumber, avocado and snow peas, all in a special shoyu marinade.

Where: Poke Poke Dubai, Jumeirah Beach Road

3. Chipotle with Chicken Breast, Toss'd

Think salads are boring? Think again. Toss'd make vibrant salads which blow most meals out of the water. Chipotle with Grilled Chicken gives the classic bowl of leaves a Mexican twist, layering it up with avocado, cheddar, mixed beans, spicy jalapenos, tomato salsa, and crunchy tortilla chips for contrast. And grilled chicken is the ideal protein, as it's lean and virtually fat-free.

Where: Toss'd, Golden Mile Building 9

4. Falafel Pita, Pita Pit

Pita Pit's name makes their game obvious – they serve some of the best pita wraps in town. Go classic with their falafel wrap, made with your choice of white or wholemeal bread and filled with home-made grilled falafel and hummus. Customise it by adding anything from lettuce and spinach to pineapple or raisins, stuff in extra cheese, pimp it up with sauces, and finish it off with a zingy dressing.

Where: Pita Pit, The Loft Office Building 2

5. Turkey Dijon Sandwich, Joga

Some days though, you really do just want a sandwich for lunch. Joga's sandwiches are like no other though. Low-fat turkey breast is piled up on sourdough toast, and covered with romaine lettuce, tomato slices, red onions, cheddar cheese and white sour cream. This sandwich goes beyond the standard sub.

Where: Joga, CNBC Building 7
