Wild & The Moon

Wild & The Moon is one of the vegan restaurants in Dubai with a completely vegan menu with recipes designed by raw vegan experts. Their menu includes fresh pressed juices, hot drinks such as lattes made with vegan milk, coffee and herbal infusions, raw vegan bars, super bowls and even desserts. They’re also doing their bit for the environment, striving for zero per cent food waste by 2020, by way of recycled materials.

Akiba Dori

Veganism also exists in Dubai’s creative district, you might be surprised to hear, so make a visit to d3 (Dubai Design District), where Japanese restaurant Akiba Dori serves up a metaphorical buffet of vegan dishes. Get your hands on veggie maki rolls and a tofu wakame salad, as well as the marinara pizza, which, you guessed it, is cheeseless.

There’s also vegan ice cream and sorbet on offer for a treat, as well as a banana nuts and protein powder smoothie to wash down the feast.
