Healthy options

If you’re feeling as portly as Old Nick himself after the festive season, head to Emirates Palace to kickstart 2017 on a healthier note.

From January to February, restaurants Cascades and Las Brisas are partnering up with Health Authority – Abu Dhabi (HAAD) under its Weqaya scheme to offer a selection of dishes that are as healthy as they are tasty.

All approved meals will be balanced in terms of calories, carbohydrates and saturated fats, and carry the official Weqaya certification from HAAD. Contact: 02 690 7999,

Genghis Grill


We’re never stuck for dining options in Abu Dhabi, but a US food chain has added one more to the roster with the opening of its first international location in the capital.

Genghis Grill, founded in 2004 in Dallas, Texas, is set to touch down in Al Wahda Mall in January with the promise of offering its own spin on healthy fast food.

Known for its build-your-own stir-fry concept, where diners can customise their meal, the menu features options including prawn laksa, noodles and Mandarin orange duck. Contact:
