Healthy eating is something that most of us know we should be doing. But living in Dubai, having an active social life and working late hours doesn’t always give us the time or the motivation to go home and cook something that we know is good for us. Dubai is definitely a city of foodies, food lovers and restaurants so one would assume that there should be an onslaught of healthy food options. Apparently not as much as we’d like.
There is a lack of healthy food concepts in the city. And although there are some out there that manage to strike a balance between healthy food that also tastes great, we’ve come a across the newest restaurant that’s getting our taste buds excited without feeling guilty.
Under 500 is a home-style café concept by Fadi Ghaly and Mahmoud Bartawi that offers a wide selection of delicious, wholesome and healthy meal and dessert options under 500 calories. Great idea right? They have a selection of gourmet meals which include Chicken Lettuce Tacos, Grilled Salmon and Avocado, Lean Steak and Kale, that are all made fresh daily and designed to incorporate nutrient dense ingredients.
“Our menu at Under 500 serves people that want to start eating healthy regular meals but don’t want to compromise on taste,” says co-founder Fadi Ghaly.
