If you love experimenting with flavours, The Palace Café in Downtown Burj Dubai should be top of your list to try. The menu has a tempting selection of breakfast, lunch, and snack items, but the items we were most tempted by were a fusion of traditional and contemporary Arabic cuisine – a style that also perfectly describes the décor that surrounds you as you tuck in.

The first item to jump out from the menu was Lobster Falafel (48 AED)  – a set of fluffy chickpea falafels, with bites of tender falafel meat inside. They were a real delight, especially when accompanied by the saffron tahini and garlic custard served on the side.

The Lemongrass Shawarma (55 AED) also tempted us into ordering – a hearty helping of chicken sandwich, filled to the brim with lettuce, spring onion, and garlic sauce and a hint of refreshing lemongrass flavours. Although the serving was quite large (with a side of fresh cucumbers, pickles and french fries), the sandwich itself was light and very tasty.

With comfortable indoor and outdoor seating, The Palace Café is the ideal pit stop whatever the weather. The service is efficient – and the calm, quiet ambience is a welcome change from the chaotic mall setting next door.
