The keto diet has become one of the most talked about food plans over the past 12 months, and it shows no signs of slowing down in 2020. For those of you thinking of giving it a go, here are some of the best places offering keto-friendly food across the UAE...
Dubai, Sharjah, Abu Dhabi and Al Ain
This food delivery company creates ketogenic meal plans for its clients, then hands them over at the doorstep.

Keto by Foxxy
This delivery-only restaurant specialises in guilt-free, keto-friendly treats. We're talking cheesecakes, eclairs, cinnamon rolls, cookies, brownies, blondies and muffins. Ingredients used include almond flour, raw cacao powder, peanut butter, grass-fed butter and flaxseeds – so you can have all the fun, without going overboard on carbs or sugar.
Available in the capital from all the top food delivery apps, Ketology offers nutritionist-approved, chef-designed, keto-friendly meals that take into consideration all macronutrient levels. The menu includes a range of dishes influenced by cuisines around the world, as well as a calorie, fat, protein, carb and fiber count for each. This includes mushroom and cheese scramble, creamy Asian beef salad and cilantro ginger lime chicken with cauli rice, to name a few. A branch in Dubai will open soon.
This delivery-only service is based in Jumeirah Lakes Towers and Dubai Investment Park and food is available to order via all the major apps. The menu, perhaps unsurprisingly, focuses on bowls: from flax chia pudding and egg salad to burrito and taco. Prices range from Dh28 to Dh55.
The Keto Fix
This brand-new spot opened in January 2020 and fills a glaring gap in the market: keto-friendly junk food. Think mozzarella sticks, chicken tenders, beef burgers and pizzas, not to mention cookies and other sweet treats from partner company Keto by Foxxy. You can order from the menu if you're in and around Dubai Marina, and prices range from Dh29 for a starter up to Dh67 for a meaty pizza.
