We dropped by Logma today morning as we were invited by Mr. Mazen & the Logma team to try their menu. Being in Dubai for over 30 years, the only emarati food I have tried is Lugaimat, which is an emarati dessert. Logma which means ‘mouthful’ is located in Box Park Al Safa, and serves authentic Emarati and Khaleeji cuisine at very affordable prices and having successfully completed one year in Dubai, this restaurant is a rare find.
As we enter the restaurant, the staff greet us in Arabic by saying, “As-Salaam-Alaikum,” which means “Peace be unto you,” Usually the common response back is Waalaikum Assalam which means ‘and upon you be peace’. The staff was dressed in modern Emarati attire with red and white keffiyeh (headscarf) on their head.
The interiors of the restaurant had an Emarati & Khaleeji touch to it. Everything including the walls and furniture was colour coordinated, the chairs were branded with their logo which is actually a female camel. You get a perfect view of the Al Wasl road from the restaurant. There’s ample seating indoor and outdoor. Since it was hot, we preferred dining indoor.
The staff was well-informed about the menu and explained to us each and every dish that they prepared for breakfast. To start with we had their Karak tea which is priced at Dhs. 12, I found it a bit pricey but it tasted really very good!! Highly recommended and a must try. We had 2 each 😄

To start our breakfast the waiter suggested we try their Shakshouka and Egg Paratha .
This dish is made of Poached eggs with spicy tomato sauce, topped with feta cheese. We didn’t quite like the taste of this dish as it was too sour due to excess tomato, it dint quite compliment the egg. The sauce wasnt spicy as well. This dish didnt satisfy our pallette. The bread called Khameer which was served along with the dish was soft and very tasty.
Price – 35 dhs

This dish was Rolled paratha with egg, cheese, tomato and coriander. We loved it! The combination of the ingredients was perfect and brought out the flavours which was fresh and perfectly cooked. The paratha was crisp and soft and quite filling. I highly recommend you to try this and do have it with Karak tea.

After the above dishes, we moved on to try their more traditional dishes ie, Chebab and Balaleet
This dish was Emarati pancakes served with cream cheese and date syrup. We really liked it, not too sweet, but creamy and the pancakes were soft and yummy, melted in our mouth.
This dish had Sweet vermicelli topped with saffron omelete. It was unique in taste as the vermicelli wasnt too sweet but just perfect for our taste buds. The ingredients were fresh but I somehow dint get the flavour of saffron in the egg. But we still liked the dish and would recommend to try it.

Once we were done with our breakfast the waiter suggested, we try their desserts. We were stuffed but seeing the desserts menu we dint want to leave without trying. We decided to try Lugaimat and Chebab Katayef. To add on to the desserts we ordered their Mocktail named Palm Island.
This dish is a traditional fried dumpling topped with date syrup, honey, Nutella or nuts. We were served Lugaimat with 3 dips on the side. This dish is one of Logma’s best desserts. We really loved it! Im definitely going back to try this again. I always loved lugaimat but only had it with the date syrup, but after trying it with nutella or honey it was totally worth it! The dessert was soft, chewy and melted in our mouth. Highly recommended by us!

This dish was a crisp chebab pancake, stuffed with mascarpone cheese and dates, drizzled with saffron cardamom syrup, and served with vanilla ice cream. The dessert smelled divine! The pancake was thick and crisp with soft and crunchy filling, perfectly cooked. It tasted quite yummy with ice cream. The dessert was messy to eat but worth every bite. It was quite heavy for us as we were stuffed after having breakfast 😃but alas, we dint regret trying it 😉
Price – 42 dhs

This drink is made of fresh pomegranate, fresh mint, lime and pomegranate juice. Its one of their best sellers and since I had way too much desserts, I just wanted to drink something that wasn’t too sweet. The drink is refreshing and perfect for summer!
What to Expect
Logma revives the Emarati & Khaleeji culture through their food. The food is prepared everyday using best of the fresh ingredients and every bite of their food makes you feel like home. The restaurant serves good food with generous portions at affordable prices. The staff at Logma was very helpful & friendly, they take service very seriously and ensured we had a great time. The ambience was really good and the arabic music they played at the restaurant was soothing and relaxing.
Me and Celia enjoyed our dinning experience at Logma and will definitely be back to try more of what their menu has to offer. We highly recommend Logma for the authentic Emarati & Khaleeji cuisine. Also, a perfect place to dine with family.
