We may not have Fall weather, as such, in the UAE, but we can get into the Fall mood with food (and wearing big sweaters in the freezing air-conditioned offices). There is nothing more comforting than tucking into a hot pumpkin soup or digging into a crunchy fresh autumnal salad. We picked a few of our favorite Fall-themed dishes that are sure to get you into the autumnal mood.
Here are a few of our favorites on our menu:
1. Richy’s Buffalo Chicken Wrap and Thai Pumpkin Soup
There are few things in the world more comforting then slurping on some hot pumpkin soup as the weather starts to change. Richy’s Thai pumpkin soup is the perfect fusion twist on Fall flavors mixing pumpkin with some Thai spice. Not only do you get this delicious heartwarming soup, but you also have a chicken wrap to munch on too. This is a lunch that will fill more than just your belly.
2. DineNest’s Spinach and Artichoke Pasta
Artichoke is one of the most underrated vegetables out there. Try this Spinach and Artichoke Pasta and you’ll see how good it can be. Not only is it delicious but it’s also perfect to get into the Fall mood as artichokes come into season during this time! So, zip up your sweater, put the kettle on, and dig into this tasty pasta dish.
3. Freshii’s Harvest Wrap
If the name isn’t enough of a hint, the taste is sure to transport you to cooler climates. Full of crunchy rainbow cabbage and beetroot this wrap will freshen up your day. If you want a light but filling lunch, this is the wrap for you. We may not have a Harvest season in the UAE, but it doesn’t mean we can’t munch on this Harvest Wrap from Freshii.
4. Circle Cafe’s Super Bowl
For all the hummus fans out there, this salad from Circle Cafe is for you. With a healthy dollop of beetroot hummus (yes, you read that right) this salad is great for a slightly different take on a classic fall dish. The roasted pumpkin (and falafel) goes perfectly with beetroot hummus, trust us! This is truly a Fall in the UAE kind of dish.
5. Applebee’s Fiesta Chopped Chicken Salad
This fiesta chicken salad from Applebee’s may not be your first thought when we say Fall — but hear us out. This salad is chock-a-block with our favorite fall flavors. From corn to red peppers, to crispy lettuce, and beans this salad is a feisty take on fall flavors. For something slightly different but still, with the comforting flavors of Fall, this is the dish for you.
6. Bert’s Café’s Stuffed Chicken Breast with Vegetables
Tucking into this warm and filling stuffed chicken breast from Bert’s Café is enough to make you want to grab a sweater and drink a pumpkin spiced latté for dessert. Not only is the chicken juicy and oozing cheese it also comes with a side of steamed vegetables, so you can freshen up your palette after all that cheese!
7. Chicken Shop’s BBQ Chicken with Mashed Potato (or Sweet Potato Fries)
For the perfect succulent chicken, obviously, Chicken Shop is the place to go. But it’s their options of sides that have gotten us in the fall mood. Whether you love sweet potato fries, mashed potato, or simply stick with the classic French fries Chicken Shop has got you covered. Nothing says Fall like potatoes, in all of their forms!
