Yakitate Dubai: The hidden gem to end all hidden gems

Kon’nichiwa! If you haven’t already heard of Yakitate Dubai, then prepare to fall in love.

Situated in the Al Ghurair Centre Extension in Al Rigga, Yakitate is a Japanese boutique, bakery and cafe serving up an eye-popping array of tempting treats. Including an assortment of exotic-sounding pastries and buns, the must-try rice and ramen burgers and some pretty amazing beverages – we loved the matcha drinks and Japanese-style syphon coffee. Divine.

The service at Yakitate Dubai is also pretty top notch. The decor and set-up, however, could definitely be improved, it’s not exactly Pinterest heaven – but we didn’t head to Yakitate to stare at furniture, we went for the eats!

We recommend heading to Yakitate for lunch, ordering a ramen or sushi burger (good luck deciding which!) and washing it all down with matcha iced tea. And if you have a sweet tooth – the Hello Kitty buns are almost too good to eat… Almost.

Insider tip: Try the steal that is ‘The sushi burger set lunch’ – AED38 for the sushi burger of your choice and either a milk tea or an iced tea drink. Or ‘The ramen burger set lunch menu’ – AED36 for the ramen burger of your choice, one side dish and either a milk tea or an iced tea drink. Bargain.
