It’s that part of the year again when it’s time for the holy month of Ramadan. Most restaurants in Dubai gear up with special dishes and menus created to be served during this period. Our recent visit in Al Barari took us to Doner Deli, that has created some special combos on their menu which you can check out during Ramadan that will definitely bring a smile on your face.
Get Set Gobble
The restaurant is all about the classic German street food called Doner that is fast gaining popularity. They have the most juiciest meat cooked on a vertical rotisserie that is sliced to thin shavings as it gets ready to serve. They stuff the meat into a pita bread, serve it in the form of a wrap called durum, over fresh vegetables as a salad or over rice. You can choose the accompaniments you like but it’s the slow cooked meat essential to each of those variations that gives true flavour to any dish you order.
We tried their Duo meal and went a combination of their Classic Pita and Doner over rice. The extremely filling Pita sandwich has chicken, lettuce, red cabbage, tomato and loads of dressing in it. It’s filled generously so be prepared for some spillage 😛 But that being said, the enormous sandwich is equally big on taste and easy to finish off.
The rice bowl may look humble but there’s loads of flavour in that one. From the delicious meat to fragrant rice, this one’s all about simple and good ingredients promising flavour in every bite. The yoghurt dip served with it makes for the perfect combination.
If you’re trying to keep it healthy then the Doner box is your best bet. They have one that’s literally called Health in a Box! This is a great option when you’re trying to get your protein fix but want to keep it light. What we specially liked was the garlic mayo dip served with it but feel free to skip it if you’re counting calories 😀
They even has some fresh salads and we simply loved biting into the scrumptious Pomegranate salad. The combination of sliced meat, white onions, lettuce, red cabbage and tangy pomegranate vinaigrette was a winner for us. It’s definitely a hearty meal that promises to recharge.
While you’re here, you must definitely try their Durums too. We were quite excited to dig into these yummy delights and ordered the Classic Durum and Durum with Feta. So it uses essentially the same ingredients that go into making the pita sandwich served up as a wrap. This one’s quite convenient to eat.
Lastly end your meal with a helping of their Coffee Cream served in a waffle cup. The consistency of this is something between a shake and a soft serve. If you are a coffee lover, this is a praise worthy treat for the summers!
