Where To Grab a Veg-Friendly Bite Along The Dubai Canal
We were all pretty excited for the opening of the Dubai Canal late last year - especially when it was announced last minute that there would be a waterfall feature falling off Sheikh Zayed Road!
We live a fast-paced life in Dubai and because of that it can be hard to remember the importance of getting outside every once in a while for some fresh air and exercise. With three pedestrian footbridges, running tracks and sitting areas looking over the water and lots of greenery to enjoy, the Dubai Canal has added a new burst of life into the city. But all that fresh air will definitely work up an appetite! When you've had enough strolling and you're ready to eat, here are the 8 best veg-friendly restaurants nearby - and you can enjoy up to 30% discount at each with Emirates NBD!
