Yas Bay, located on the outskirts of Yas Island and facing the multi-billion dollar recreation and entertainment zone, is on the verge of opening. This Yas Bay is on its way to becoming Abu Dhabi’s most popular waterfront destination, where amazing experiences will be created. More than 30 restaurants and pubs are located along the water’s edge. It also has its own private wharf for relaxing. Allow us to show you around Yas Bay’s most popular sites.
1. Daikan Ramen
Pier 71 on Yas Bay’s waterfront location will be home to one of Dubai’s most popular traditional noodles joints. Hio, miso, and soy broth rocking feats of noodle grandeur are well-known. This authentic Japanese ramen-ya will be a welcome addition to the Asian cuisine scene in the capital. Whooo! Since it initially opened its doors in 2018, this walk-in ramen bar in the heart of Jumeirah Lake Towers has proven to be extremely popular among Dubai’s foodies.
The cafe is simple on the inside, with plain concrete walls and a scattering of wooden tables. Even the menu is clear and simple. There are only a few primary ramen variations to pick from, but they’re all hearty, nutritious, and full of fresh ingredients. There are also a number of appetisers designed to be shared with friends, like as gyoza dumplings and chicken katsu.
2. La Carnita
This Mexican restaurant was founded and grown in Toronto’s burgeoning culinary scene. This Abu Dhabi outpost builds on the success of the InterContinental Dubai Marina’s Dubai site. The venture’s creators have claimed that the capital’s version will be more refined. The decor, menu, and soundtrack have a more adult feel to them. This location will also have a raw bar, which we hope will specialise in ceviche. A rooftop patio with views of the Yas Bay Waterfront.
3. Akiba Dori
The lively Japanese restaurant and pizza in Dubai Design District (D3) has already found its way to the new multi-billion-dollar Yas Bay development. We think Akiba Dori fits right in with the neighbourhood, with its neon stripes, elegant interiors, and imaginative artwork. Around the middle of September 2021, the latest station of the devastatingly cool Tokyoite eatery Akiba Dori opened. The restaurant is located on Pier 71 in Yas Bay and has a terrace with spectacular skyline views. The Dubai collection is expected to include some mouth-watering favourites. This is not only a Japanese-themed restaurant but also a well-regarded pizzeria. Their freshly cooked Neapolitan pizza is something to look forward to. In this trendy alleyway backstreet of Tokyo, Akiba Dori, savour the best Japanese cuisine as well as one of the top pizza hotspots. Is there anything else you need to know about why Akiba Dori is one of the greatest Japanese restaurants in Abu Dhabi and Dubai?
4. The Lighthouse
In Abu Dhabi’s Yas Bay, the Lighthouse Restaurant & Concept Store is a must-see. It seats 145 people and is licenced, which is great. The Lighthouse isn’t like any other restaurant you’ve ever seen. Hashem Montasser and Hany Bassiouny founded the brand in 2017 and it combines a gourmet eating experience with a boutiquey shop location. They have a fantastic collection of books, perfumes, and oddities. This is ideal for those people that are difficult to purchase. The cuisine has a bit of a freethinker feel to it. And we mean that in the nicest possible way. This ensures delicious breakfasts and high-quality coffee. Food inventions with a twist. A big component of the menu’s identity is health and nutrition.
5. Hunter & Barrel
Hunter & Barrel, an Australian steakhouse, will open in the capital’s new leisure and entertainment zone, providing a much-needed gathering spot. It has established a Vida Emirates Hills store in Dubai. With a large oak table, the bar area is sleek and contemporary. At Hunter & Barrel, the food is substantial and fairly priced. Steaks start at Dhs120 for a fillet steak and go up from there. Dhs 150 for Hunter’s sharing platter. Sticky, smoky chicken wings, lightly battered prawns, spicy calamari, and the three-cheese dip are all on the menu. Hot and gooey, with a side of freshly made pita bread for dipping. Mammamia!

12. Emmy Squared
The eating scene in the nation’s capital is devouring the Big Apple. Emmy Squared, a New York-based pizzeria, is expanding to Abu Dhabi’s Yas Bay. This defender of good carbs specialises in Detroit-style pizza. A square pizza with a crispy bottom, fluffy dough, caramelised cheesy frico crust, and trademark sauce stripes. Emmy Squared has 13 sites in the East and South East of the USA, while being a brand that is little over five years old. They serve a variety of red and white pizzas, both traditional and creatively topped. It’s also not just about the pizza.
