Wild & the Moon

A cool new vegan restaurant at Al Hosn

Time Out Says

WE’re not VEGAN, that’s a caveat we want to put out there right from the off. We’ve cut down how much meat we eat and plant-based milk alternatives fill the fridge at Time Out Towers, but we are yet to embrace the veganism fully. With that in mind you might be wondering why we chose to review a vegan restaurant and the answer is - we love food, all food, and if it tastes good, we’re all in.

Wild & the Moon has been a popular spot in Dubai for a while now and in recent months it’s ventured to Abu Dhabi at Qasr Al Hosn, where the cool, hipster-friendly open venue is begging to be snapped for Instagram.

We share a sundried tomato muffin and it’s perfectly pleasant, tangy and filled with a creamy nut cheese. Not bad at all.

The orange blossom pancakes are sweet and pillowy, covered in chopped banana, creamy whipped coconut and maple syrup. Who needs dairy? These certainly don’t.

The wild tacos, filled with avocado, shitake mushrooms, red beans, vegan cheese and pico de gallo are good but maybe lack, dare we say it, a meaty protein, sorry.

Are we ready to go full vegan? No, but eating less meat can’t be bad and this is a good place to get your fill of plant-based food.
