TAKE A SEAT AT SMAT AND RELISH A BLEND OF LOCAL TASTES

SMAT, the new Khaleeji haunt at Dubai Design District, is a one-of-its-kind cafe and restaurant that fuses traditional Emirati cuisine with modern flavour and feel to bring out dishes that we bet you’ve never heard of before. 

Exhibit A: Karak french toast

Exhibit B: Emirati spiced Schnitzel with creamy mushroom sauce.

Need we say more?

The restaurant features a carefully curated menu of home-made favourites with foreign flair.

Designed by Nadia Al Khaja, the Emirati co-founder of the brand, it brings nostalgia and excitement together on one palette.

 The space features al fresco dining that slips from a busy brunch spot into a classy dinner joint, with young people constantly flocking to find themselves a corner to work and socialise with their fellow creatives. 

Eclectic decor and traditional touches like an in-house oud player, wafting scents of oud and bakhoor, and local artisan coffee varieties like Gahwa, complete the place for a fully-immersive local experience. 

An avid reader and writer, Manaal is known for her passion for telling stories. This passion results in her reading everywhere, on the metro, bus, and even in her dreams. In the rare instance, she isn't absorbed in a book, she can be found cuddling with cats, sleeping, and collecting an obscene amount of shoes.
