Guess what? Dubai Mall is getting a Pret a Manger


If you work in Downtown this will seriously up your lunch game…

Pret A Manger – it’s a British institution that’s all about sandwiches, soups and salads to go – and a second Pret is set to open in Dubai soon.

There’s already a Pret in Dubai International’s new Concourse D in Terminal 1, and we’ve now found out that there’s definitely a new Pret A Manger opening in Dubai Mall.

Where in the mall it will be and what the exact opening date is we’re not yet sure, but we do know they have chosen a space and so it can’t be too long now (and, of course, we’ll keep you updated). This should be particularly exciting news for all of you working in Dubai Mall or Emaar Business Park (as Pret is a real grab-and-go-while-at-work brand).

Whether it’s the posh cheese sandwich, the molten chocolate croissant or the hot toasties, most Brits have a Pret favourite. The brand has been running since 1986, and it stands out in the fast food industry for avoiding using additives, preservatives and chemicals in its food. A Veggie Pret brand has also recently launched in the UK – and there are now two vegetarian-only Prets in London (a third is set to open soon) – whether this offshoot will come to Dubai, we’re not yet sure.

Simply beautiful beets, feta and toasted pistachios. #ChefsSpecial
