This is a lively, convenient and affordable spot in the heart of JLT.
We love exploring food halls during our travels around Asia and this is why, an invitation from Streetery had us very curious.
Dubai’s first Asian Food Hall, this spacious basement level space is tucked away in the heart of JLT. The tenants are all local Asian eateries serving up quick fresh plates of indulgent goodness.
Streetery is just a few months old but it has already become the go-to for residents and workers around the area. When we arrived at lunchtime the place was buzzing-almost all the tables were occupied and the line to order was stretching across the restaurant.
The decor is simple, this is a no-fuss place where the focus is solely on the food. The open kitchen adds to the buzz as the cooks are working quickly to prepare the dishes and the waiters are running around to make sure all the tables are being served.
The boundless menu is displayed on boards above each kitchen. Streetery offers all sorts of delights-Singapore style noodles, green curry, black pepper stir-fry and so much more.
We began with the refreshing Thai and Malay salads. Both were made with the freshest of ingredients including plenty of herbs and had that perfect balance of sweet and savory along with just the right amount of crunch.
In the mains we tried the Malay curry with roti-this dish is hands down our favorite-every bite had an explosion of flavors and the roti albeit not the healthiest but totally worth the calories.
The Hong Kong style noodles are handmade and you can build your own bowl-we loaded ours with fried tofu, prawn dumplings, bok choy, bean sprouts and drizzled it with a chilli bean sauce.
The Szechuan style green beans have a nice kick to them and match well with the sticky white rice.
If you are a dumpling fan then you will be sure to find ones you love on their menu-they have quite the selection, including vegetable potstickers and prawn wontons.
For those who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty, should try the Asian fried chicken that comes with a choice two different sauces.
Streetery is a place that you must bring a friend (or two) to really get a good taste of the expansive yet inexpensive offerings.
