I am a major fan of Under500 and their phrase, “Great taste. No guilt.”, is so true. Their menu is diverse but grounded in one simple principle, eat healthy. There are options for the carnivores and the herbivores amoung us so everyone will be able to eat something AND still be delighted by their choice.
The latest thing I have tried at Under500 was their Ahi Tuna Poke (pronounced poh-kay … like okay with a p) Bowl which was a revelation and now I not only want to try the other two poke bowls they offer but also try other Dubai based poke bowls. Heck, I might even travel to Abu Dhabi for a poke bowl. Yes, they are that good.
Of course they don’t only serve poke bowls there are other great options like their Steak & Eggs (under all day breakfast), the spicy Chicken Lettuce Tacos (under small bites but for me it is enough for a small lunch), there are also plenty of kale and quinoa based recipes as well and of course some low calorie desserts and delicious juices. Oh yes and they deliver.
And then there is the service. You will be hard pressed to find a friendlier team in a Dubai restaurant. I feel so welcomed whenever I go there and they know my name (I am not even a weekly customer so this is a feat in itself). The kitchen team is also super friendly and will answer any ingredient questions you have. This is why I love open kitchens.
So if you are working in the JLT area and are looking for a delicious healthy option check out Under500. They also have Business Bay and Dubai Marina branches which you can check out online.
