BOXPARK, Dubai’s latest urban district by Meraas, has launched 17 new outlets taking the total store count to 39. Ten of the new concepts mark their regional debut at the destination that is located on Al Wasl Road catering to the young and young at heart with its hip, youthful and unique ambience.
Staying true to local tastes, six of the 15 new F&B concepts serve food from in and around the Middle Eastern region. Among these, Ahwak and Filful offer a twist on Lebanese food, Shishfish is a fish and seafood concept based on the quaint restaurants located by the Bosporus in Turkey, Love Mhshy is an eatery that creates dishes using traditional Egyptian and Lebanese recipes while adding favourite Emirati flavours, and the Jag Restaurant serves Azeri food in a family friendly setting. For desserts that complement the regions flavours, Gossip Desserts features Emirati inspired Euro-American dishes on its menu.
Asian cuisines make an entry to BOXPARK with restaurants like Kuai and Yamaha Café. Kuai is the first Chinese restaurant in the UAE that recreates authentic flavours evocative of the side-streets of China, while Yamaha Cafe recreates a sporty biking setting and offers a choice of sushi, sashimi, curries, tempura, and an exclusive range of okashi – a traditional Japanese sweet. Bubbleology, fitted to replicate a laboratory at BOXPARK, brings the Taiwanese concept of bubble tea into a quirky setting.
For those preferring mixed platters, the newly opened Markette offers Mexican, Asian, Arabic, Indian, French and Italian cuisine, while the Melting Pot offers a variety of cheese and chocolate dippers for fondue lovers. For a provincial cozy experience, La Noisette serves impeccably prepared, fresh, healthy Mediterranean food. Meanwhile, the Brownie Box and Cioccolatitaliani are among the new choices for a dessert stop.
BOXPARK continues its streak of bringing debut and niche offerings to Dubai with the recent inclusion of Classic Car Café. The restaurant boasts French-European inspired cuisine set against the backdrop of classic car memorabilia and automotive imagery. Backed by independent entrepreneurs with distinctive audience personalities, the new concepts that have already made an impact in the region include brands such as Liv by Giant, Typo, Marimekko and Urbanist that lend themselves to the vibrant atmosphere of the outdoor destination.
Adding to the retail scape, Angels and Imaginarium house a variety of children’s items including designer clothing and toys. With the introduction of the 17 new outlets, BOXPARK has truly evolved as the edgy and alternative destination for urban living.
