Urban RetrEAT launches green initiative

August 6, 2018 | By RetailME Bureau

This August, diners at Urban RetrEAT – which is located on the first floor of Abu Dhabi’s Yas Mall, close to Ferarri world and Cascade Dining – can avail of 20% off their food bill when they bring their own container, plate, cup or flask to the venue. The offer will run throughout the month, from August 1-31, and is redeemable at all food vendors present in the venue.

The UAE generates more than 6.5 million tonnes of waste per annum, according to Dr Thani Bin Ahmad Al Zeyoudi, Minister of Climate Change and Environment, which is the equivalent of 1.2 to 1.3 kilogram per day – among the world’s highest. As a thriving hub for the community in Yas Mall, Urban RetrEAT has pledged to do its part in the UAE’s efforts to cut down on waste packaging materials such as food boxes, coffee cups as well as cutlery.

Having recently opened its doors to public in June, Urban RetrEAT – the brainchild of foodpreneur Dana Alsharif who is passionate about the food truck industry – has become the go-to destination for foodies in Abu Dhabi. Urban RetrEAT is home to 12 food vendors on rotation every three months. Currently the food concepts at Urban RetrEAT include Sukkar Dose, Joe’s Sliders, Tawa Bakery, Casa Latina, Chez Moe, Piddza, Casa de Churros, Firefly Burger, Hue Pasta, Fatteh O’Salata and Off the Hook.

From briskets and burgers to bubble waffles, seafood and salads to sugar laden deserts and even gluten-free goodies, there’s something for everyone to choose from. There are even vegan and vegetarian options, including salads and arepas.

Alsharif has launched Urban retrEAT as a community to support home-grown talent and give them a platform to boost their business. Alongside the food vendors, the venue also hosts local artists and musicians on a weekly basis.
