HumYum Umm Suqeim is an Emirati gem in Jumeirah with snappable interiors and delicious, cheat-day worthy Emirati cuisine.
Flanked by a charming little straw stick gate and clad in wood, HumYum offers outdoor seating and indoor tables and chairs for small and large groups – including two private and traditionally decorated enclaves. There are also two vintage Land Rovers propping up the semi-open kitchen and the barista’s coffee bar.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, this homegrown gem’s menu is bursting with an array of dishes and drinks. Loved for its karak, the options include standard karak, karak with cornflakes, saffron karak, and ginger karak. There’s also the nostalgic favourite Horlicks on the menu alongside a variety of teas and speciality coffees. Food-wise, you can choose from Khamir and Chabab creations, Kubz Regag, paratha rolls, sandwiches, and chapattis.
The Huntr tried the Chips Oman and Cheese Regag (10AED), and the Dynamite Shrimp Paratha Roll (20AED) – washed down with karak and a flat white.
The food is tasty and comforting and offers a chance to try something different for those looking to dip their toes into Emirati culture.
Insider tip: HumYum is open daily 7 am until 3 am. You can also find HumYum at Global Village and in Hor Al Anz
