Stasha Toncev, owner of 21grams, says that they’re thrilled to join the line-up. "The market allows us to explore a new area of the city and further grow our community, bringing our unique brand of soul food to a diverse, global audience.

“21grams holds a special place in the hearts of many and we’re excited to share some familiar favourites and new dishes with our blossoming circle of food lovers” she says.

The original restaurant closed in April 2020 owing to the pandemic, but reopened later in the year with a “new point of view”. It is currently in the process of moving to a new venue, located on the second floor of Meyan Mall, and is scheduled to open in a few weeks. In the meantime, fans will be able to sample some of its offerings over at Time Out Market Dubai.
