Where to find the best plant-based grub in the capital


Souq Planet
This health-conscious supermarket at Etihad Plaza has an amazing range of frozen vegan products. There’s vegan sausages, chicken strips, veggie balls and of course, every vegan’s favourite patty, the Beyond burger, which is perfect if you fancy staying in and trying to come up with better topping combinations than the big restaurants. Or if you’re craving a sweet treat, there’s vegan-friendly chocolate bars, ice creams, peanut butter cups, and even croissants.
Open daily 6am-midnight. Various locations, including Etihad Plaza, Khalifa City A (02 556 3142).

Your Urban Market
Offering an experience that’s very different to that of the usual supermarkets here, doing the food shop is so much more fun when it’s at Your Urban Market (or YUM, if you want to be down with the kids). There are two locations in Al Bateen Marina and the Khalifa Park area, and it’s full of trendy and hipster-approved grocery brands (including the homegrown Moni’s Healthy Choice products), healthy lunch options and an amazing selection of fresh juices. We could spend hours in here.
Various locations, including Al Bandar Marina, Al Bandar (050 411 8757)
