YUi in Dubai Design District is the place to head to when you are craving ramen in Dubai.
If you love nothing more than a wholesome bowl of soup and noodle,s then you are in luck. YUi, is restaurant located attached to a lifestyle store in Dubai Design District, serves exceptional bowls of ramen, that are worth queuing in line for.
The decor is minimal and the design has a Japanese aesthetic with all the furniture made in wood. If you go early enough (they open at 12 pm), you could get a booth, or else there is always the communal table. The open glass kitchen, overlooks the restaurant and unlike most restaurants, everyone seems to be working calmly. The servers are friendly and very knowledgeable-overall the atmosphere is calm and zen-like.
We tried the house special Chicken Paitan Ramen (45 AED), egg noodle with chicken soup. A carefully composed bowl of creamy and rich broth, bouncy noodles, tender chicken and a handful of mushrooms, we slurped up every last drop!
There are a variety of ramen bowls to pick from and the vegetarians aren’t left out-there is a a bowl made with 100% vegetable broth and veggie noodles.
YUi sources the freshest ingredients and the noodles are made in-house using Japanese flour. The chicken is sourced locally and simmered for 10 hours to make the broth.
YUi is located in Building 7, Dubai Design District.
