Aussie and Spanish duo Tom Arnel and Sergio Lopez have been credited for bringing Australian café culture (including flat whites) to the UAE, with their take on traditional shakshuka, super green salads and the token steak sandwich. Their warehouse-style duplex is flooded with a stream of diners all weekend so aim for a mid-week visit if you prefer taking your time over breakfast.
The industrial area of Al Quoz boasts a flourishing arts scene, especially in the cutting-edge Alserkal Avenue, as well as pop-up shops and cafés. Keep your eyes peeled for the ArtintheCity ArtBus (http://www.artinthecity.com/), which runs guided tours to the various galleries, studios, creative spaces and fairs.
