The homegrown concept is set to redefine Dubai’s street food scene.

Food enthusiasts and culinary explorers, get ready to embark on a sensational gastronomic journey with RARE, the UAE’s first gourmet food truck offering Japanese and Latin American-inspired cuisine. The latest addition to Dubai’s vibrant food scene, RARE promises an exceptional and unforgettable dining experience unlike any other.

The homegrown concept was born out of the shared passion for food among three Emirati friends with the dream to open a food truck serving high-quality food in an informal setting. The trio teamed up with accomplished Colombian Chef Brando Moros, known for his specialty in wood-fire grilling. Chef Moros has passionately crafted a Japanese-influenced menu with a touch of South American flair. Dishes combine elegance and precision with bold flavours, presented with impeccable attention to detail.

The menu showcases an array of premium quality ingredients carefully sourced from the best suppliers from around the world, Bluefin Akami Tuna from Japan, full-blood wagyu sourced from Mayura Station in Australia and Saroma in Japan. Guests can look forward to sampling exquisite signature dishes A5 Wagyu Nakkuru Dhs128 (MBS 12+ Japanese wagyu knuckle, Tsukamoto, crispy shitake, mushroom powder, leeks ash), and Chocolate Wagyu Fillet Dhs158 (MBS 9+ Mayura Station chocolate fed wagyu, pickled bok choi & onions, togarashi, garlic sauce). The latter is a stand-out luxurious delicacy, the cows are fed a distinctive combination of chocolate and cream-flavoured gummy bears during the last four months of their lives, imparting a truly distinctive flavour profile to the meat.

Located under Al Wasl Bridge and opposite Al Safa Park, the visually striking food truck cannot be missed.
