To watch the sunset from Jebel Ali Beach, or just to watch the kitesurfers go by on a lazy day, is a real treat of living in Dubai. But, pairing that view with a mouthful of tasty street food? Now that’s our idea of a fabulous day out, and Maddy is here to provide it. Sitting pretty on the shores of the Gulf, and with winning views of Palm Jebel Ali, this fab food truck serves up snacks, drinks, and more to ward off any hunger pangs that might result from a day at the beach.
Maddy is a fairly easy spot once you reach Jebel Ali; just look for the pastel teal seating and the giant heart bearing the name of the food truck. As you probably immediately guessed, most of the ‘gramming here centres on that giant heart, which frames the water perfectly and offers you a killer snap.
The menu is a crowd-pleasing affair, with the likes of pizza, chicken sandwiches, and burgers on hand to fill your stomachs. Meanwhile, there’s a neat array of juices, smoothies, and coffees to select from – and take it from us, on a scorching hot UAE day, one of Maddy’s iced coffees will go down a treat. Take it from them…
There’s a second outpost of the brand near the border with Oman, but we think you’ll agree that the beachside location clinches this one as our favourite of the two. Maddy’s Instagram account is splashed with words like “paradise”, and when you’re kicking back with an eyeful of the Gulf, kitesurfers dancing in the wind, and a plate of tasty food in front of you, we reckon you’ll agree.
