Homegrown, Emirati-owned gem Culinary Boutique Dubai offers a cosy sanctuary for UAE foodies in the heart of Jumeirah. It is the ideal place for breakfast, lunch or dinner and unique cookery classes. Join your friends at The Huntr as we take a closer look…
Housed within a converted villa, Culinary Boutique is as pretty as they come. There’s an impressive 3D ceiling, which reminded us of the sand dunes not too far away in the Dubai dessert or a wave in the ocean (which you can find even closer, down the road at the beach). The cafe can seat 82 people and there is also a quaint little outside seating area for the cooler months. Up on the first floor, Culinary Boutique offers cooking lessons and has a state-of-the-art kitchen, which is also available to hire, alongside a special events space for private functions. There is also a beautiful rooftop terrace complete with Dubai skyline views.
Food-wise, the breakfast menu is exclusively served between 8am and 1pm and offers a variety of tempting options including (organic, locally-sourced) egg dishes, healthy and vegan-friendly options, plus decadent French Toast creations and a large Arabic Breakfast, which is built for sharing. The lunch/dinner menu is available from 1pm and is divided between cold starters, hot starters, salads, main courses, sandwiches and sides. Alcohol-free, Culinary Boutique serves Brazilian speciality coffee, mocktails, smoothies, milkshakes and other soft drinks.
The Huntr visited Culinary Boutique for a weekend breakfast. We decided to sample the kitchen’s best-sellers and they didn’t disappoint. The French Toast (69AED) is soaked overnight and super moist and tasty, the Bacon Eggs Benedict (68AED) was faultless, the Spanish Omelette (65AED) was cheesy and delicious and the healthy Açaí bowl (60AED) was one of the nicest we’ve tried. We washed it all down with a good Flat White (23AED) and a Lavander Coconut Latte.
