Aptly named, Under 500 is a new health focused cafe where all the dish are – yup, you guessed it – under 500 calories!
Choose from a variety of raw, gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, high protein and low carb dishes for complete guilt-free feasting. I was invited to the branch in Business Bay, where Ed & I started with fresh chicken lettuce tacos and spicy edamame beans, which were both delish. For mains I moved on the ‘rainbow quinoa salad’ with extra chicken and Ed absolutely demolished this chicken burrito bowl – whoever said salad doesn’t fill you up certainly hasn’t seen these impressive portion sizes! Both of us washed down our meals with super food juices and finished off with a cute little chocolate brownie.
Whilst I can’t speak for the location in JLT, I wouldn’t recommend driving all the way to the little branch in Business Bay as the area is shrouded in construction, so it’s not very accessible. Although if you do make the journey, you’ll be more than impressed with their chic and sleek interiors! But the good news is Under 500 seems to be available on every food delivery service in Dubai! In fact, delivery seems to be extremely popular as during our meal the drivers from Deliveroo, Talabat, Food On Click and a few more places all came in making their rounds. Well, I definitely know what I’m ordering for lunch at work next week!
