Foodies will be excited by this cool new venue

Abu Dhabi’s first food incubator, Urban retrEAT, is on a noble gastronomic mission to create a platform for local “foodpreneurs” to come together under one roof.

food_04Located in Yas Mall, it’s so much more than a mini food court. Wooden tables and chairs, quaint food stands, a kids’ play area and a dedicated spot for performers give this venue something special.

With the line-up of vendors set to change every three months, current picks at Urban retrEAT include Casa Latina, Tawa Bakery, Chez Moe Café, Firefly Burger, Piddza, Roll-Ups, Mr Brisket, Bubble Waffles, Casa De Churros, Off the Hook, Hue Artisan Pasta and Fatteh O Salata.food_05The signature Firefly burger, a juicy beef patty enveloped in melted cheese, is worth a try.

I can also recommend Mr Brisket’s 12-hour smoked brisket sliders topped with smoky barbecue sauce and tangy cheddar.

Off the Hook’s solo meal is a catch with its medley of shrimp, salmon, mussels, crab balls and rice, mixed in a garlic butter sauce.

We can’t wait to see what vendors are introduced next, but until then, get eating.food_06Yas Mall, Yas Island. Sun-Thu 10am-10pm, Fri-Sat 10am-midnight. Contact: 050 261 7257, urbanretreat.me
