Dubai has a vibrant street food scene- be it the authentic shawarmas, ice golas, or the age-old chips oman sandwich. But, we feel there’s nothing more comforting than a pita bread stuffed with moist chicken or meat, drizzled with a creamy-garlicy sauce. Having said that, nothing describes Dubai better than late night shawarmas and a fruit cocktail. Ask anyone who’s lived here and they’re bound to reminisce that tiny eatery that sold lip-smacking shawarmas. We went around the city tasting shawarmas, and spotted five places we’re sure to go back to.
Al Mallah Cafeteria is one of the most famous Arabic & Lebanese fast food restaurant in the UAE & has been around for over 33 years.
Located at 2nd December Street in Satwa & 4 other locations, Al Mallah Cafeteria is a budget-friendly restaurant serving up the most delicious shawarmas along with pastries, falafel, sandwiches, grills, snacks, fresh juices that will keep you coming back.

Al Mallah Cafeteria is still true to its origins, a takeaway joint for people on the go. However, it also aims to serve a unique experience with its ambiance, from bright green neon lights to seats alongside the main road. The restaurant’s juices are loaded with fresh fruits mixed together with frozen yogurt. Currently, Al Mallah has five branches in Dubai and Sharjah.
