I have previously ordered home delivery from Little Erth by Nabz&G, and it has always been really good, so the other day, when I was in JLT to pick up some business cards, I decided to go and check out their physical location. It was such a cozy place!
Most of the plant-based restaurants in Dubai have roots in the Indian cuisine, but the menu at Little Erth is primarily international. You will find many of the plant-based it-dishes-right-now on the menu, along with a bunch of original creations and a juice menu that immediately made me think of Yoga Barn in Ubud.
Here is what I ordered and my thoughts about the food:
Vegan Mac & Cheese: A hearty dish with a nice creamy texture. Though it was lacking cheese flavor (I’ve heard from vegan friend Waz, that you can add nutritional yeast to accomplish that, maybe that would be worth a try?), and I also did not like the coconut notes in the flavor.
Spring wraps: Papaya wraps with a filling of cashew cream and guacamole. Amazingly delicious and one of Little Erth’s signature dishes. A must-try, if you go.
Vegan cheese: I did not intend to order this dish, but due to a misunderstanding when I placed my order, this was what I first got, instead of mac & cheese. The waiter apologized and said she would send it back to the kitchen, but it looked so delicious, that I decided to keep it, and get it to go. The cheese is made from tofu and cashew and the flavor and texture is similar to cottage cheese. The serving is rather big, and I think it would be a little too much for one person as a starter, but perfect to share (or to take home and snack on). Unfortunately, I forgot to take a photo, but it was delicious.
If you are walking from the Marina, Little Erth is to the right, around the corner from Wokyo.
