Travel

Started by two women, Amal Al Marri and Deem Albassam, Salt began as a temporary food truck at Kite Beach. (This sounds like a familiar story in many cities but food trucks weren’t a thing in Dubai when they tried it, and they still aren’t at the level of what you’ll find in LA, NYC, London, etc.) While a lot of Dubai’s eating and entertainment happens indoors (mall culture is huge here), Marri and Albassam wanted to create a fun spot for locals to hang outdoors. Salt now has a permanent spot at Kite Beach, and it’s wildly popular. The menu—sliders, fries, softies—is indulgently good beach food. If you’re feeling adventurous, the cereal latte is a bestseller. (There’s also a Cheetos-fried chicken sandwich option…)
