High-end business lunches in Dubai that won't break the bank
Wallet-friendly meals starting from AED69
So you want to have a high-end lunch but don’t want to spend a fortune? Here are 6 businesses lunches in Dubai’s most prestigious areas including DIFC, Downtown Dubai and Sheikh Zayed Road. And guess what? They start at just AED69. 1. The Artisan in DIFC:
\nNew Outlet The Artisan just launched a business lunch menu consisting of signature Italian dishes. And who can say no to Italian food? If you want a quick bite at a good price (AED120 for two courses) in a great venue, go for this one. It includes favourites such as home-made pizza, Octopus slow-cooked in homemade olive oil, grilled scallops and agnolotti pasta stuffed with pumpkin.
2. Ting Irie in Downtown Dubai:
\nThis Jamaican joint’s business lunch, ‘Lickety Split’ Jamaican for ‘meal on the run,’ is just AED79 and includes local cuisine starters such as patty crust nachos with salsa, oxtail cocobread sandwiches and rasta greens salad. Mains include choices of Jamaican-style chicken, shrimp and beef. If you’re in the mood for something sweet, Ting Irie also offers dessert such as ice cream sundae for an additional AED35.
3. Bussola, The Westin Dubai:
\nIf you haven’t tried Bussola’s pizza, you should. The Italian restaurant serves wood-fired pizza which is sometimes included in its business lunch. While it changes daily, the lunch is always a two-course menu priced at AED120. We say, take a risk and try it no matter the menu. It’s bound to be good.
4. Okku in Sheikh Zayed Road:
\nThis is where you get the best deal for your money for Japanese food. The high-end dining outlet offers two menus for AED69 and AED99. The more affordable option includes miso soup, salted edamame, a main course and ice cream while the latter includes the same with an additional starter and chocolate fondant for dessert.
5. Q43 in Dubai Media City:
\nIf a relaxed lunch with a view is what you’re after, head to Q43. Located on the 43rd floor of Media One Hotel, the loft-style venue offers a three-course menu for AED89 including a starter, main course and dessert. Alternatively, opt for its sushi menu for the same price.
6. Gaucho in DIFC:
\nOne of the best business lunch deals in town, Gaucho’s new menu includes two options: the ‘Feel Good’ healthy menu (just 500 calories – rejoice, those of you on a diet!) and the ‘Feel Great’ not-so-healthy menu. Both involve two or three courses for AED120 and AED150 respectively. They include dishes such as tiger prawns, steak and delicious panna cotta for desert.
