Exploring Common Grounds Dubai

If you’re looking for a cool place to chill and hang out with friends while being served by the friendliest staff you could possibly meet, this is the place for you. Newly opened at Mall of the Emirates Level 2, this brunch spot is effortlessly modern and devastatingly aesthetic.
 
After we had spent sufficient time gawking at the exteriors and the espresso bar, we sat down to order drinks and started out with the It’s Just Another Manic Mango which was a tangy smoothie that had a healthy blend of acai, mango, and passion fruit. Their coffee, though, is a must have, and give you plenty of options such as filter coffee, using a Syphon, Aeropress or a Chemex!
 
Moving on to mains, our lovely server recommended the Jerk Chicken, one of their best sellers and we now know why. Fresh, flavourful and wholesome; the chicken was roasted to perfection. The slightly sweet bell peppers and roasted pimiento were the perfect escorts along with the bean and carrot slaw, tomato salsa, grilled corn, smoky spiced almonds and spicy potato wedges. We highly recommend the Prawn Tacos which were served with perfectly crisp shells and prawns that came with red mojo sauce, feta cheese, roasted jalapeño, mango slaw and fresh herbs. To amp up the flavour, the dish even contained EVOO, a natural juice squeezed from olives one day after the harvest; quite impressive. For the vegetarians, we recommend the Veggie Rice Wrap that came with a bunch of crunchy vegetables, glass noodles, herbs, sprouts, leaves and shredded nori. The zingy black sesame sauce which was spread generously across the bottom of the platter was the highlight of the dish. This dish definitely doesn’t leave you feeling incomplete.
