A post shared by S A L T (@findsalt)

Salt is known to pop up at various locations across the UAE, and this summer you can head to retail hub, Yas Mall in the capital for some Salt magic. You won’t be able to get their burgers though as this is purely a summer chill mission, with food limited to their signature softies (including watermelon and the lush-sounding new mango and coconut flavours). With the temperatures rising, these sure are super tempting.
