These takeaways provide the best dining experiences within the comfort of your home in Dubai
Famed chef Joel Robuchon’s 12 restaurants have amassed 28 Michelin stars, more than any other chef in the world. It is rare that a chef of his calibre would collaborate on a takeaway menu but Sushi Art is no ordinary restaurant. This establishment aims to provide quality sushi that can be enjoyed at home. The Joel Rubuchon box provides a sampling of the culinary master’s creativity using ingredients that are unusual for sushi, such as kiwi, basil and mango. The seared scallop nigiri is sublime. The charred exterior provides a smoky nuance to the silken scallop underneath while the miso saikyo lends a touch of umami.

A passion project launched by longtime friends and former bankers, Bader al Kalooti and Fadel Belmahdi, this eatery like a handful of other takeaways in the city dishes out gourmet shawarmas from Dubai Marina. The duo spent months developing the recipes to deliver elevated sandwiches that also happen to be healthy. With over 50 choices of meat, toppings and sauces, there are enough permutations and combinations to suit anyone’s taste. The menu also includes health side dishes such as a clementine salad and quinoa fattoush. Try the roasted duck with garlic and fig jam. The combination is reminiscent of fine duck rillettes topped with sweet and savoury compote, but in a convenient, portable form.

This delivery-only spot is the brainchild of a small group of friends who grew up in the United States and after relocating to Dubai, became nostalgic for classic, American diner food. However, this location serves much more than that. It throws in some classic southern dishes and each item is made by hand. If late-night fried chicken is your weakness, this crumb-battered version should guarantee you never look elsewhere again. The side dishes, such as battered onions or sweet potato fries, arrive still crispy and hot. All the desserts are made by the same supplier to The Cheesecake Factory. The adorably packaged single serving red velvet cupcake makes the perfect sweet ending.
