Myocum Dubai is named after a beautiful area in Australia’s New South Wales. Serving caffeine from 7am and food from 8am (until 11pm daily), you can find this little homegrown gem in Dar Wasl Mall, next to The Huntr’s favourites – One Third, She Burger and Drop Coffee.
Thanks to its Australian roots (co-founder Pascal Moser is also Australian), the interiors are cosy, casual yet refined and make you feel instantly at home. The space is peppered with books, plants and exotic flowers. There are wooden tables and comfortable leather seats, and there’s also an outdoor counter area, which is perfect for enjoying the weather in Dubai’s glorious winter season. Dog owners will also be pleased to learn that this is a pet-friendly spot, and when we visited for a weekend breakfast we spotted a few pooches relaxing beneath their owner’s feet.
The menu features a wide range of dishes for every occasion, decadent breakfast dishes like Banana Brioche (49AED) – a slab of brioche, caramelised plums and bananas, homemade walnut crumble and coffee mascarpone, and lighter options such as the Summer Bircher (49AED). For a casual, light lunch, there are plenty of salads, bowls and sandwiches on offer, and for bigger meals that could be enjoyed for lunch or dinner, there are some mouthwatering mains on offer including Rustic Ravioli (72AED) and Country Lamb Chops (82AED).
The Huntr opted for The Lighthouse Brekky (58AED), which comprises toasted sourdough, 2 poached eggs, green cashew pesto, spiralled zucchini, capers, pomegranates, halloumi, sesame-crusted avocado and shaved asparagus. This light and tasty dish shouldn’t be missed. We also ordered the Shakshaka Brah (62aed) – 2 poached eggs, mildly spiced salsa, chorizo, Turkish bread and zaatar tzatziki – a delightful take on the regional favourite (shakshouka), which is packed with flavour. From the Sweet Tooth section of the menu, we couldn’t resist the Coconut Charcoaled Pancakes (52AED), which features charcoal infused pancakes, sweet potato coconut puree, tangy mango salsa, and churro coated vanilla ice cream. Lastly, we sampled (and fell in love with) The Sweet Rice (57AED), which is a Venere black rice pudding, handcrafted with coconut milk, festive spices, toasted seeds, plus nuts, mango and berries. Divine.
The coffee on offer at Myocum is notable and is sourced from various places, one of which, is the homegrown favourite – RAW Coffee. We enjoyed the perfect Latte (26AED) and also quenched our thirst with a healthy cold-pressed juice made with apple, cucumber, lemon and mint (32AED).
The service was friendly and prompt and this spot should be added to your hitlist, stat: If you’re looking for a cool spot to enjoy a long leisurely meal with loved ones (and a pooch or two), you’ve found it…
